Hi

I have a Sony Vaio VGN FS315E, which has two graphics cards (i think), I managed to get the Technicals Details, which are at the bottom.

I am current using the monitor that comes with the Laptop and a BENQ LED 20" Monitor on the external D-Sub Port and have the Benq Monitor set up as an extended desktop, which is really useful to have two monitors.

What I was wondering, is there any way to add a third monitor? If this is possible at all and maybe more monitors.

My expertise with Laptops is limited and would appreciate any help. I did wonder if I could use the PCMCIA support that comes with the laptop as a third graphics card and do things that way, but like I said, am not knowledgeable with these things.

Any help would be greatly appreciated and many thanks

Your rig does not have 2 video cards, but it can output to 2 monitors simultaneously, as you are doing. With that system, you can't use more than 2 displays. Sorry.

I can stop wondering and trying to work out ways it could have worked. Thanks for the information.
