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?
