Alright so this is for my laptop. I have an Intel HD 4000 and GeForce GT 650m. I believed that the Intel HD 4000 was capable of 3 displays, but I can only run 2 at the moment. My OS is Windows 7 64-bit.


Most likely not relevant but I have an Intel i7-3630 QM and 16 gb of ram.

The displays I'd like to run are a 27 inch samsung monitor via HDMI and a 22 inch LG TV via VGA. Along with my laptop's display of course.

Can it be done, if so, how?

Edit: Well i've got 2 HDMI slots, a mini HDMI slot, and a VGA slot.

How many display out connectors does your laptop have? If you don't know, just send the model number.

Both the HD 4000 and 650m can run 3 monitors, but that doesn't mean you have enough connections to make it happen.

Robert is spot on, you should be able to but some laptops will only have one or two external connections. If one of them is displayport you may be able to split it with an adapter to two DVI connections. It would likely not be a concern if you are hooked up to a monitor but most laptops won't push to multiple external displays unless plugged in.
