My laptop had 2 display cards, and I want to connect a second external monitor (that is, a third monitor) to have a wider view.
The two display cards are:
- Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000; and
- NAVDIA GeForce GT 550M
Sadly, my laptop can only recognize the first plugged-in monitor and keeps the other one greyed-out. I checked the properties of the two active displays (the built-in display and the external monitor), and they are both using the Intel graphics card. Though I cannot get the third monitor to have signal, I can add a virtual monitor in the display settings. This virtual monitor's signal is not captured by any physical monitor and is driven by the NAVDIA display card. I feel frustrated that I can have a virtual display but cannot assign this signal to my third monitor. I've tried searching online for a way to do this, but I haven't had any luck. How can I get my second external monitor to work with my setup?
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
