How to use three monitors with T410 2537-29U and docking station 4337?

2012-09-24, 22:19 PM

I have Lenovo laptop T410 2537-29U and I’m using  Lenovo Docking Station 4337. I have two monitors connected to docking stations. Windows 7 shows three monitors as expected ( one notebook plus two external monitors)  But one monitor always remains disabled.

How do I use three monitors. The laptop has Intel graphics card inbuilt.

i5-520M(2.4GHz), 2GB RAM, 160GB HD, 14.1in 1280x800, Intel HD Graphics, CDRW/DVDRW, Intel 802.11agn, WWAN upgradeable, Bluetooth, Modem, 1Gb Ethernet, UltraNav, Secure chip, Camera, 6c, Win7 Pro 32

According to the above specification list, you have the Intel GPU, which means it can only support 2 monitors. If you need a third monitor support, get a usb2dvi converter or an eGPU/Vidock.

I two have this same problem but the only thing I have not tried yet is using the dvi port on the side of the laptop as well as using the two on docking station . it might work but I don't know I have not tried yet but I have found that with all the thinkpads I have used it is the same always one blank and two working I think that's just the way it is . it might be possible if you have lenovo approved connectors or some thing like that .

I did some research and checked around and it looks like you can only have two monitors at a time any two but just two there might be a better dock that can do what you want but the 4337 only supports two.
