  1. Extending to dual external monitors on Surface Laptop 3


    I'm thinking about purchasing 2 external monitors 2x Dell 27 USB-C - P2722HE to use with my Surface Laptop 3 USBC 3.1, so that i can extend the 2 monitors via daisy chaining. USBC to USBC between the laptop and the first monitor, and then Displayport to Display port between the two monitors. This would avoid the need for any dock.I have seen several users highlight issues in extending the display of the Surace Laptop 3 and i wanted to ask the community if my proposed solution presents any issues. Note i want to extend the displays - not simply duplicate them.

    :)

    Surface Laptop 3 with external monitor

    Hi All,

    Has anyone come across an issue with an external monitor blacking out while connected to a Surface Laptop 3? I have the laptop connected to a widescreen laptop with the Surface Dock. Both work fine however, once every hour or so the external monitor blacks out and comes back.

    I've completed the following:

    • Updated laptop drivers and firmware
      • Updated monitor drivers
      • Swapped out monitor
    [/LIST]

    External monitors extending issue.

    I am trying to connect 6 external monitors to my laptop running on windows 10. I am using DVI-D dual-link to HDMI cable to connect the monitors to the HDMI splitter and HDMI to HDMI cable to connect the splitter to the laptop. There
    is just one problem when I am extending the screens, the external monitors seem to duplicate themselves rather than extend. So instead of 1 to 7 for all monitors combined, all my laptop only detects 1 and 2. 1 being my laptop and 2 being all the other external
    6 monitors. That means that all the external monitors showing me the same thing as in they duplicate and not extend. Any suggestion on it can be fixed so all the external monitors become the extension of my main laptop and do not duplicate?

    Dual monitors with the surface 3

    I purchased a surface 3 in July and just updated it. I have a dual monitor adapter and have the setup plugged in correctly (I think) the display is showing the same thing on all 3 screens (surface monitor and 2 additional monitors). How do I get the
    displays to show different things? I am a novice so anything helps.
