I'm using DP - DP - Built-in.
Also tried following
None of them is working, this is on a Lenovo T430S without the integrated nVidia driver and a docking station. I can also inform you I've tried with 30 other computers of the exact same model.
Have you checked with the computer manufacturer if the built in display is an embedded display? This can be the reason why you are not able to get triple monitor configuration. The built in display on laptops most of times is not an embedded display.
It is important to say that the configuration for triple display can be found on this link:
The configuration must meet those requirements and if you a video adapter is used, we cannot guarantee the correct functionality therefore, we strongly recommend using straight connections.
Yes it seems that Dell have made the E6430 Intel 4000 limited to 2 screen in Windows 7 unless using WIDI which is very poor.
However why does it work with Ubuntu 13.04?? If true seems more software driven issue rather than hardware.
Now I'm going to look at replacing my Dell E series laptop with another E series and NVidia graphics as this can handle 4 screens.
Don't you just love buying big brands only to be given the same support you would receive from lower end of the market!!!!
Intel - Maybe you could help support your customers better and discuss this issue with Dell.
I am bit tired to read and to try to imagine where is the best place to put my question...cos I can't understand why after working with my old pentium 4 on music industry, with a simple Matrox Pharelia 750 I have been working with 4 monitors (3+tv) without any problem...and now, with a super new computer, with Intel I7 4770k Haswell, ASUS B85 me main board, with 16 GB of RAM, i just can work with ONE screen????????
There is no way to have three, or just two!! monitors working as always I did!!
My two monitors are BENQ FP92WA, with VGA ports, but with DVI adapters (it comes with old parhelia).
Once I was connecting my new computer, I saw one of the DVI connectors doesn't works...ok, Now I need a special DVI-D connector for the second screen (at this moment I didn't want to spend more money in a third hdmi adapter!!) I have the latest drivers (just downloaded 5 minuts ago)
Nothing..no way the card recognize than there is a second monitor!!!!! NOTHING! it could be a different driver, and old driver...but NOTHING! the light of the screen is yellow, never is green just for a second...
I have read the requisits for to have 3 monitors and I don't see what I am doing wrong...well, maybe to buy a computer with a Intel graphics integrated??? well..I hope not thinkinh about this...
Please, could you give me any solution?
We have tested 3 monitors from our side and with several Intel® motherboards with good results. If you have a different motherboard brand my best recommendation is to contact the manufacture and confirm with the how many screen you can run with the output ports in the motherboard.
From my side, you can try using direct connection to the monitors (no adapters) since this can affect the performance or usage of multiple displays.
I have a Lenovo T530, I am using it with a Docking station that has 1 VGA and 2 DVI Ports (actually has 1DP & 1DVI then 1DP and 1 DVI.
I have it setup with monitor 1 in DVI 1, built in display #2, and monitor 2 in DVI #2.
I have an Intel HD 4000.
I have followed the FAQ configurations that you pointed out, and it will not allow me to operate both monitors and laptop display at the same time.
In the Intel software it gives me this choice:
Here you have a very informative link about triple display configuration:
You can also check this information:
Hello. I've read through this thread and have come to the conclusion that I cannot use a 3rd display because my built-in display is LVDS. My laptop is equipped with all a VGA port, HDMI port, and several USB if needed. I'm curious why it is said that if having these ports, a 3rd display is possible. For me, only the VGA connection or the HDMI connection work but never at the same time. (Using a Toshiba Satellite with Win8). Is there no way around this? What is a UGA card and is it a solution?
Please note that when using HD 4000 it is must to have two DP outputs or monitors and then either WiDi, VGA, DVI, HDMI or embedded display to have the 3 display configuration.
At this point, this chart can be confusing with the information it shows so I am going to send this to the corresponding department so they can modify it as soon as possible.
This is the reason why you are having problems setting this configuration with the hardware you have.
DP stands for Display Port. Please refer to the following link to get more information:
This should be the configuration for triple display when using HD 4000:
DisplayPort + DisplayPort+ VGA or HDMI or DVI or WiDi or Embedded Display(LVDS)
I am sorry for the confusion.
Thank you for sharing this image. Based on the hardware on your computer it seems your system does not have a DisplayPort.
When I say Display Port I am referring to the hardware output port. This is an image of a Display port Output:
Your current system has HDMI and VGA but not DP output. Here you can get more about this outport Type:
