Folio 9470m notebook with two monitors

Hi all,

 

 

I want to use my Folio 9740m notebook with 3 independent display (Built-in display and two external monitor HP L1750).

 

I tried to connect direct to notebook and docking station but it's not working. Only two displays are working at same time.

 

Is it possible to use with 3 display (Intel HD graphics 4000 can do that)?

 

Thanks for your help.

 

Greg

I updated the BIOS and graphics driver, but nothing has changed.

Re: Folio 9470m notebook with two monitors

The only laptops I've got working with more than two monitors have the ATI video chipset.  I don't think its possible with the Intel 4000.  One option is a USB to Video adapter.

Re: Folio 9470m notebook with two monitors

9470 definely supports the setup you are trying to accomplish with the Intel HD graphics card. Are you using the Intel GUI or just using the WIndows interface? On Win 7, right click on desktop area, choose Graphics Properties>>Use Basic Mode for the Intel Graphics, (make sure the lid is open on the laptop) Under the Display section click on Multipl Displays>>on the right side under Active Displays click on the drop down arrow and choose 3. I'm running that setup now.

Re: Folio 9470m notebook with two monitors

Hi,

 

 

I try a brand new 9470 with Windows 7. Out of box drivers cannot recognize 3 display only two. Update drivers and Intel Graphics Control Panel but the situation is same. Windows and Intel Graphics Control Panel see the 3 display but cannot recognize at same time so the 3 display is not working. :(

 

I'm waiting other updates and I hope it will working ....

Hello,

Any update on this? I have the same problem here. I dont want to use a dock and want to connect one monitor thru VGA en one monitor thru Displayport. Both monitors are HP 24 inch with a resolution of 1920x1200. I want to use these 2 external monitors and at the same time use the internal screen. Is this setup possible without a docking?

I use the newest Win7 Intel video driver version 9.18.10.3006 with the integrated Intel HD4000 graphics card on the 9470m.

 

Regards,

Onno

Re: Folio 9470m notebook with two monitors

It's my understanding that it is a limitation of the 9470M that it cannot do "true" dual head monitor support without driving one of the monitors from an external USB Displayport adapter (HP part C5U89AT).

 

Attaching to the second displayport in the docking station only works if you want to clone the display or extend the same desktop across two monitors.

 

This is addressed in the next generation Elitebook hardware and next gen docking station.

I've not been able to get 3 indpendent monitors running either.  I suspect it may have to do with the high resolutions of thw two monitors.  Has anyone tried using lower resolution settings for three monitors (didn't work for me)?

 

On another note, using the single displayport only allows for a "stretched" desktop environment.  In order to get two independent desktops we had to use one monitor on the displayport in the back of the docking station of the 9470m and use the 2nd monitor on the side displayport which is attached to the laptop itself. This allows you to run two indendent desktops on each of the two monitors without having to get that "Daisy chained" effect where your desktop is just stretched (i.e. when you maximize a window it stretches across both monitors).

The Folio only supports Dual Displayport 1.2 technology which only allows the daisy chain monitors and doesn't support multiple independent desktops, thus your only option is to get one big wide desktop if you connect multiple monitors to a single displayport.

 

I'd love to get a solution to allow me to use two monitors plus the built-in display!  Any ideas??

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.
