2 external monitors for Latitude E5430?

This question is not answered

Hello,

I have a Latitude E5430. At the moment I am running dual displays, one being the laptop screen and the other is an external monitor connected to the VGA port. I would like to have 2 external monitors (and not use the laptop's screen). Both my external monitors have VGA cables, but I only have one VGA port. Is it possible to have one monitor connected to the VGA, and get a HDMI-to-VGA adapter for the other monitor? I would like to know if this is likely to work before I go buy this adapter. THanks in advance.

  • It should be, yes - you will likely need to disable the notebook screen.  You'll also need a powered HDMI to VGA converter - you cannot use a simple cable to make that connection (HDMI is digital;  VGA is analog).
