In order to better assist you and to provide the most accurate response to your inquiry, we just need to verify a few details.
What is the model of your laptop?
Do you know the model of the processor on it?
Once we get that information we will be able to verify the data sheet of the processor and make sure how many displays and which resolution it supports.
Any further questions, please let me know.
Thank you very much for sharing that information.
You mentioned the model of the processor in the laptop is the i7-6500, I looked to confirm that information and I found a 3rd party link that says the actual model is i7-6500U:
I looked on Dell’s web site, but it just says that the laptop includes a 6th generation processors:
If the model is correct, on the following link you will be able to confirm the resolutions supported by the processor depending on the video port that it is being used, look for “graphics specifications” tab:
And on this other link you will find the displays supported by the Intel® Graphics 520 controller, please look at page 39, it actually supports triple display with some requirements:
I hope that information answer your inquiry.
Any questions, please let me know.
I have just read your answer and I think you could help me.
I have a DELL LATITUDE 5270. It has Intel HD520 ( and Core i5/6200 @ 2.30Ghz) . I have a Samsung monitor which only has VGA and DVI ports (but does not have HDMI port) and a TV which has either VGA and HDMI ports.
I connected the Samsung monitor by using a VGA to VGA cable, since my Dell Laptop has VGA connector.
I also connected the TV to the HDMI port. I wanted to have these two external monitors in extended desktop (besides the laptop monitor, so three in total).
The TV did not worked. The Samsung monitor worked.
So I disconnected the Samsung monitor and I left only the TV connected through HDMI. And it worked.
So it looks like I cannot have two external monitors when one is VGA and the second one is HDMI.
My question is: how can I do to make it work? If I use a VGA to HDMI adapter for the Monitor and I also use a USB docking station where I plug both the monitor and the TV with HDMI, will it work in extended mode?
Are there USB docking stations which has VGA and HDMI? Would it be good in this case?
I will be looking forward for your answer.
