I haven’t actually purchased this product yet, I have learned my lesson from buying a DualHead2Go and having it not work. So here’s my situation:
1 Dell Inspiron 1535 (studio) with Intel 965 Chipset graphics card
2 Samsung SyncMaster P2250 Monitors
Running Visa Home Premium
I want to be able to close my laptop and run 2 external monitors. Can I do this?
I was told by Matrox (mfr of Dual Head) the following:
“The graphics card in your system (Intel 965) is supported by your Dualhead2go unit although to a maximum resolution of 2048 x 768 (1024 x 768 per monitor). The monitors you have are requiring a resolution of 1920 x 1080 (3840 x 1080) which our unit does not support when connected to this graphics card;;;;”
What I want to know is will this product Plugable UGA-2K-A USB 2.0 to VGA/DVI/HDMI Adapter for Multiple Displays up to 2048x1152 / 1920x1200 Each - DisplayLink DL-195 Chip work with my laptop graphic card? If so, do I need to buy 2 to display both monitors or can I plug one monitor into my laptop and the other into the above device? OR do I need some random docking station with display adapters to get this setup to work?
Any help or advice greatly appreciated. Seriously, I have paperweights here.
