T540p How many external Montiors can I have

2018-05-15, 15:34 PM

Hello,

I have the Thinkpad T540p (20BECTO1WW) with the ThinkPad 170W Ultra Dock.

I have two external Monitors and the native one active. I want to add another Monitor to my setup but cant do it.

How many external Monitors does my Model support?

I have the standard Graphicscards built in:

  • GeForce® GT 730M
  • Intel® HD Graphics (integrated)

 

The two external Monitors are running through AVI and HDMI. I wanted to add the third external Monitor through DVI. Do I need DisplayPort? Do I need a special BIOS setting? Im running on ubuntu 16.04, but I dont think that this is important.

Is there any support for a 4th monitor or are 3 Monitors the limit?

I don't think you can hook up more than 2 external monitors. Max is 3 while ThinkPad LCD always on.

That's why Lenovo has W540, which let you to hook up 1+5 at same time.
