W500 is it possible to run 3 monitors w/port replicator & VGA out of PC

MT 4061-B54, connected to Thinkpad Advanced Dock MT 2504-10U, can you run 2 monitors out of the Advanced docks' video ports (1 DVI & 1 VGA) and then a run a 3rd monitor from the VGA connection from the laptop?

acekc77, welcome to the forum,


when attached to the dock the VGA on the notebook will be disabled, sorry the answer is no. Smiley Sad


I don't remember seeing a post about using the displayport to run a third monitor, but there are loads of discussions in the boards about running multiple screen setups. A solution which will work is to use the Lenovo USB-to-DVI Monitor Adapter.


Hope this helps
