EliteBook 8740w with A7E34AA#ABA (STANDARD 230W) docking station - 2 External Monitors
Product: EliteBook 8740w
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)
Hello, I've read quite a few messages on multiple monitors and the 8740W, but I can't make out an answer to my question, so I'm hoping that someone can help. I'm running the 8740W ( Intel I7 / Windows 7 / Nvidia Quadro) and the STANDARD (NOT THE ADVANCED) 230W docking station.
My goal here is to use the laptop screen, along with 2 external monitors connected to the STANDARD docking station for a total of 3 working displays. From what I've read so far, it's pretty tricky, and I was lost in some of the terminology.
While leaving the laptop screen open, I have connected the following to the docking station:
1) A Vizio HDTV - via a DP to HDMI adapter - looks great.
2) An AOC Monitor - via a USB 3.0 to VGA adapter - display is available - but limited to 800 x 600 resolution.
Is there a way to improve the resolution for the AOC monitor (ext monitor #2), using this current setup?
Do I need to set these up in a different configuration? ( I think I've tried every possible combination)
