Dual external monitors not working with T430s + Mini Dock 3

2017-04-13, 3:42 AM

I would like to use my T430s with two external displays, for a total of 3 displays.


My configuration:

T430s with NVS 5200 (Win 7 professional)

Mini Dock Series 3 (4337)

external monitor 1 connected to DVI on the dock

external monitor 2 connected to VGA on the dock


The system detects both monitors fine, but will only allow me to extend desktop to one of them at a time. Can you guys help me? My understanding is that it should work just fine with my configuration.

I am trying to do exactly the same thing.  With the same results!!  I bought the docking station from OEMPowers / EBAY...you get what you pay for (I am a slow learner!)
