Re: Folio 9470m notebook with two monitors

Trumpets please..... I have a solution. 

 

I spent 3 hours trying to figure out why this worked on one Folio 9470m and not the other.  The same is true of the Revole 810 as it has the same Intel 4000 graphics card.  

 

You must have a monitor that natively supports Display Port. If you convert the signal to DVI, HDMI, or VGA, it cannot support the 3rd monitor.  Swapping out this connection immediatly disables the 3 monitors option.  If you look in the "Graphics Properties" shotcut to the Intel display utility; on the multiple monitors tab, you should see an option for 2 or 3 monitors in the drop down.  

 

Here is our hardware setup that works.  

Folio 9470m (intel 4000 graphics) on bios V40

HP Dock B9C87UT#ABA

Monitor LA2405x

Hp Video driver 9.17.10.2867

So are you saying that you have been able to successfully connect (3) LA2405x monitors at 1920x1200 via DisplayPort?

 

The dock you mentioned only has one DP connector... how are you doing this?

Re: Folio 9470m notebook with two monitors

i'll confirm this as working.

 

HP 9470m

HP Ultraslim Dock

2 X HP LA2405wg

 

Display 1 - Builtin Display

Display 2 - DP from dock to DP on LA2405wg

Display 3 - VGA to VGA on LA2405wg

 

Does not work with any other combo including a media change from DP to HDMI or DVI. Must be native DP

Re: Folio 9470m notebook with two monitors

I can confirm that running 3 independant displays does work, but not as it exactly should. My setup below -

HP9470m
HP Ultraslim Dock 2013 (D9Y32UT)
HP LA2405x (x2)
Samnsung Syncmaster 46" display

Display 1 - HP LA2405x (via Displayport on Dock)
Display 2 - HP LA2405x (via Displayport on system)
Display 3 - Samsung Syncmaster (via VGA on Dock)

Granted I know having to plug the single displayport in to the actual machine defeats some of the purpose of the dock. However, this is the only way to achieve my setup as the 9470m does not support 2 Displayport's to be used independently on this dock.

Re: Folio 9470m notebook with two monitors

Do you have a solution because of the 1440 x 900? I have the same Issue and found your post in the community. I have two 22", and i want to use those with 1680x1050, but i can only have on on this resolution... and on on 1440x900...!

Hi,

Can you explain how you managed to get both your LA2405x to work simultaneously? I have been trying to do this since yesterday and the DisplayPort on the laptop itself does not seem to work while the laptop is docked. As soon as I undock it, it starts working.

Any idea?

Thanks in advance.
