Multiple external display X1 Carbon Gen 4 (HDMI and DP/OneLink+)

2017-04-22, 18:23 PM

Hello,

 

I just bought an X1 Carbon Gen 4 and need to hook up 2 external monitors which have VGA, HDMI or DVI ports available.

 

The idea is to have a 3 monitor setup (all three monitors with a resolution of 1920x1080) including the Built-in monitor and the 2 external ones.

 

I have bought the OneLink+ adapter that has the RJ45 and VGA ports (4X90J31060) and am trying to set the whole rig up so that one monitor connects to the VGA port on the adapter and the other monitor is connected through the HDMI port on the laptop.

 

The problem is that I can only seem to get 2 monitors going at a time, either Built-in & HDMI or Built-in & VGA.

 

Before I go and buy more hardware (i.e. dock or MiniDP to HDMI/DVI adaptor), I was wondering if what I am attempting is even possible, and if it is, what I am doing wrong.

 

Thanks to anyone who can answer.
