Dual Extended Monitors

I have received conflicting information from Dell - can you run dual extended monitors on Optiplex 3010 with the Intel Graphics VGA/HDMI card?


Can you split the VGA output ?  Connect VGA to one monitor and HDMI to DVI splitter to conect the other?


Thanks for your help.

Re: Dual Extended Monitors

Hi MCNaugle,

Optiplex 3010 is shipped with following integrated graphics solution:

  1. Integrated Intel HD Graphics 2500/4000 (3rd generation Core i3/i5 CPU's)
  2. Integrated Intel HD Graphics 2000/3000 (2nd generation Core i3 CPU's)
  3. Integrated Intel HD Graphics (Pentium Dual Core and Celeron CPU's)   

The computer would support 2 displays. You may connect one monitor with VGA and may connect another monitor to HDMI. In case you like to split a VGA output, you might need to use a splitter. In case your monitor has a DVI port, you may use HDMI to DVI converter. You may look at the following options: http://bit.ly/13yTAfT and http://amzn.to/16th26 

Availability of part and part# may vary depending on your region. 

Please reply for further clarifications. 

Thanks and regards,

RE: Dual Extended Monitors

We just replaced my old dell box with an optiplex 3010.  On the old box, I have been using dual Dell E207WFP's with an added video card and splitter.  Now I have one monitor on the VGA working fine, but the other going from HDMI to VGA monitor - I am just getting the blacks screen with "1: Analog Input Self Test Feature Check" floating around.   Is there a setting that I am missing?  Everything I have read says it should work, but it won't.
