Hi there,
I am thinking to buy two Samsung monitors each having one HDMI and one VGA(15 pin D-SUb) ports. My laptop has only an HDMI port. So my question is can I connect the displays as below-
HDMI from laptop to HDMI for first monitor AND VGA from first monitor to VGA fro second monitor.
Will this work?
Will all the three monitors get connected?
Thanks a lot.

nope, the vga ports on the monitor are input only. You can buy an usb video card but its pretty much just for business grahics.

Thanks a lot.
Okay then how about this another monitor that has DVI, VGA and HDMI.
So can I connect HDMI from laptop to HDMI first monitor AND DVI from second to VGA in first?
