This may have been asked already, sorry if it has been I would welcome the links to the threads, my immediate searches found nothing. I have a SA series Vaio. I would really like two monitors at my desk at work. Right now I am using extended desktop with a Samsung 14" screen on the VGA output of my laptop. Is there anyway with a docking station or some other bit of hardware to get two samsung 14" screens to run as extended desktop, so that basically I can dock my laptop on arrival at work in a draw and run the two screens on the desk with a wireless keyboard and mouse? I hope that is clear enough. The docking stations available from Sony have 1x HDMI output and 1x VGA output. Can the graphics card handle the use of both ports if the normal screen on the laptop is closed.
I did try a rather brutal attempt earlier in the year by cutting a VGA plug away from its cable and putting the pins into my VGA output whilst I still had a HDMI cable plugged in as well, needless to say (and I wasnt very optomistic at the time, after all if Sony had made it possible to run the VGA and HDMI ports simultaenously then they wouldnt have put them so close so as to stop you from using them both ath the time) it didnt work!.
Much love for HTG great site.
