Thinkpad X260/Ultra Dock with 3 external monitors

Hi, 

 

I am trying to connect three external monitors to my Ultra Dock (2 displayport, 1 hdmi). When I connect the 2nd displayport cable to the dock, the hdmi monitor shuts off. Is there any workaround? Apologies if this is a basic question.

 

Thank you!

Hi cj24, and welcome to the Lenovo User Community!

 

Here are your display configuration options (you need to use the X260 DP to get what you want):

Thanks for the response. Sorry - still a bit confused. Are you saying I need to connect the 2nd displayport cable directly to the thinkpad (not the dock)? Thanks.

That's what the table says. You can't connect two DP's and HDMI to the dock. Pick any three of the checked x columns.
