9800GTS problems with laptop, can't support 2 extra monitors plus monitor on the lid?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So, heres the situation.

I have a laptop (in sig rig) that has 1 VGA output and 1 HDMI output.

Its running a 9800GTS.

I try to have the laptop screen, 23" u2311h, and HP w2207h hooked up at the same time, but Nvidia control panel says My card only support 2 screens. Is there any way to change this?

Nope, the card can only run 2 displays at once. Most graphics cards can only run 2 displays at once. (some get around it by using display port, which doesn't need that circuitry to be on the card).

If you want to run both those screens off your laptop, you could get a Matrox Dualhead2Go, that would do it, but at a cost.
