Greetings,

Tried connecting a 3rd monitor to my MB1 with no luck. Win 10 won't identify the 3rd monitor. I have 1): internal monitor, 2): 2d monitor connected to the HDMI, and the 3rd): thru a USB to HDMI adaptor.

Any thoughts appreciated.

73,
Greg

You need to turn off the internal monitor if 3 external monitors are used. I have the same setup myself.

Hi, all.
MB1 internal video card Intel® HD Graphics 530 supports the simultaneous operation of two displays, either two external or one external and the internal. So you can connect 2 external monitors, one via DPORT and the other via HDMI, but your internal display will be blank.
To fix that you should use the internal video card with the internal display and one external monitor (HDMI or DPORT). The second external monitor can be connected via USB-to-HDMI or USB-to-DVI adapter.

Rome what do you suggest, I'm planning to connect 2 monitors on my MB1, both monitors have hdmi connection and there is only one hdmi output on the MB1. What do you suggest I use a dport to hdmi or usb to hdmi adapter cable???Rome wrote:
