Hi Experts,

I have just purchased a Lenovo W520 Laptop. I am in the process of setting up the displays using NDIVIA Control Panel. I have 2 external monitors and so far I have managed to set up the display to duel mode however is it possible to have the duel display on the two monitors and also have a display on the Laptop screen at the moment it is tell me that the laptop display is inactive.
Is there a way I can activite it and have 3 displays?

Thanks

No, the nVidia only supports two displays at a time -- you can choose which two, but that's all.

To have a 3rd display, you'd have to add another video adapter -- in the case of a laptop a USB adapter would work ==> something like this:  http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16815290006&nm_mc=OTC-Froogle&cm_mmc=OTC-Froogle-_-Video+Devices+++TV+Tuners-_-IOGEAR-_-15290006
