I have a Toshiba Satellite P775D (6GB RAM, Processor: AMD A8-3500 APU, Graphics: AMD Radeon HD 6620G). I tried connecting this laptop to a 1366 x 768 monitor through VGA and a 1920 x 1080 TV screen via HDMI. It does not seem to want to let me run the two monitors at once (though separately, they work just fine)!

I'm getting a vague impression that some computers can and some computers cannot do this (because the graphics card cannot handle it or something). Very annoying! How do I tell if this is the case for my computer? My computer is not top of the line or anything, but SURELY in 2012, a $700 computer can run three screens... If not, what options would you recommend? A USB adapter?

Thanks in advance! (And yes, I have tried Google)
