I bought a CONVERGE/AV HDMI 8-Port Distribution Amplifier with HDCP. I would plug the two monitors into that, then plug that into my Laptop HDMI port. I tried it already and the two monitors display the same extended monitor views. They are NOT unique. I need 3 unique monitors running. I went to Microsoft. Found nothing there. So I figure it has to do with Intel and their graphic package. I need a 3-monitor driver or software or something. Can anybody help?
Your processor graphics supports up to 3 monitors:
However, how DELL implements that is a question for Dell. Contact Dell for support. They are responsible for your support and assistance.
Also, the use of adapters is not supported.
Also, that CONVERGE/AV HDMI 8-Port Distribution Amplifier does nothing more than duplicate one hdmi source to eight displays. You should not expect to see anything more.
If your laptop has an HDMI, a DP, and a VGA port, that is three separate displays.
Thanks for your prompt reply. I understand what you are saying, Dell has to provide the answer and/or hardware. The 8-port amplifier is not the tool to use. I had a friend contact me this morning with a listing on eBay for a: "DELL Triple-Display Docking Station" that works with my Inspiron 15 (5000 Series). I think this will solve the problem. Thanks you for your help and assistance.
