Chromebook (Samsung 500)-- Diplaylink adapter


#1

Will the displaylink adapter work with a chromebook for extended monitor support? I am trying to us two external monitors with the chromebook. I know the Chrome OS has only recently added support for extended desktop and I was going to see if I could get it to work with two external monitors.

Hi Lonnie-

Thanks for posting with your question!

There is no support for DisplayLink devices on Chrome OS at this time. Support for multiple displays is restricted to Chrome devices that include built-in HDMI/DVI/VGA connections:

Both our USB2-E100 and USB2-E1000 are supported on chrome, and USB storage devices should also be no issue, however the DisplayLink USB graphics driver has no support.

I hope the details help, but sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Best wishes-
