Dual Monitors/Extended Desktop with Intel HD Graphics?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I need a quick answer!
I am setting up a machine for someone and they have an Acer Veriton that comes with a little basic Core i3 and embedded Intel HD Graphics.

The back of the PC has both a VGA and DVi.
I don't want to use the clone feature, I need to know if you can run extended desktop, or basically have a dual monitor setup with this.

I am 90% sure you can I just wanted to verify. Someone here must have tried this already. I did alot of searching but most people are talking about Intel HD Graphics 2000/3000, this is just the regular Intel HD Graphics.

Please help!

I did extended desktop with Intel HD 3000 over HDMI. Worked fine. Could watch a film/tv on one screen, browse on the other.

Not a single person with a PC that has the new Intel HD Graphics has seen or tried this to tell me for sure? Wow.
I am 95% sure but man, is that hard to believe.

Thanks for the comments guys!

I will try this for you tonight when I get home from work, no worries.
The test machine will be in my sig. I'm really certain it will work, or the info will be in the manual for the motherboard you are putting in.

Forgot to post last night, but I did test this for you. It worked for me with the machine in my sig. It is worth noting that I could not get it to work using a vga-dvi adapter on my machine.
