multiple monitor help

[ Edited ]


My office just gave me an HP EliteBook 840 with the HP Ultraslim docking station. We have older Dell monitors with DVI and VGA connections only. How can I get multiple monitors set up on this? It appears that the laptop has a displayport (DP) and VGA out and the docking station has 2 DP and 1 VGA connections. Is it possible to use 1 VGA connection on the laptop and one off the docking station simultaneously? I plugged both in, but the monitor connected to the laptop wasn't recognized while connected to the docking station. I wasn't sure if there was a WIN 7 setting somewhere I could change that.

If that doesn't work, is it possible to have 1 VGA and one DP connected (connecting to the 2nd monitor with a DP to VGA cable)?
