I have a Dell Latitude E5520 laptop and I can see there is a port labelled 1394. Does anyone know if you can run a mini-DisplayPort to VGA adapter from it? I am trying to set up 2 external monitors to be used at the same time as the laptop screen itself.

The port labeled 1394 is a FireWire port. Therefore I don't think that you can directly connect a miniDisplayPort adapter on this port. If you have some adapter to connect your VGA to FireWire it could work...
