I am currently using Acer TravelMate 6592 and I want to connect two external monitors to it, My Laptop does have both VGA and the other type (white connector) but when I connect both of them, one external monitor goes off.

How can I have both of them on with three different programs appearing on them including my Laptop screen without using external device.

Thanking you in advance..

Kind regards,

Tman

1 Answer 1

From TravelMate 6592/6592G Service Guide (PDF):

To enable the dual monitor feature of the notebook, first ensure that the second monitor is connected, then select Start, Control Panel, Display and click on Settings. Select the secondary monitor (2) icon in the display box and then click the check box Extend my windows desktop onto this monitor. Finally, click Apply to confirm the new settings and click OK to complete the process.

Hopefully then, on this screen you should see 3 display choices (your laptop's, and the two external displays).

I did this but it is not working, when I go to Settings, there it only shows two same Display 1 & 2 of which I can only select 'Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor' check box once I have selected no 2 Display. –  TmanKaMavungu Jul 2 '10 at 9:26
    
Hrm, I'm not sure what to do if only 1 of the 2 external displays shows up. Is it the VGA or the DVI (white connector) that shows up? –  sunpech Jul 2 '10 at 13:07
