I'm running Windows 7 enterprise.

Two of my external LCD monitors are connected to my Latitude E6410 through the 2 DVI ports on the dock. However, I could only get 2 screens to display at the same time. Either the laptop screen & 1 LCD monitor or just the 2 external LCD monitors. How do I make the 3 to display at the same time?

I'm not familiar with this EXACT machine (so I won't make this an answer), but this is a very common limitation of a lot of laptops. It's by design. The simplest workaround is a USB video adapter for the extra LCD. – Shinrai Oct 14 '11 at 20:09

The GPU in the E6410 only supports up to two monitors at a time.

You should look at a USB video adapter if you need more than two screens.

Correct. If you keep the laptop lid closed, the 2 external monitors will work. If you open the lid, one will turn off – Keltari Jun 2 '13 at 2:18
