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

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

Andy
