Latitude E5430, Docking Station and Monitor dilemma - Can anyone help?

Hello all

I'm having some problems in attempting to get two monitors working with my docking station. They are both VGA outputs, which I've attempted to connect with various DVI adapters but haven't been able to get either working with the DVI interfaces.

Having tried the combinations mentioned I'm wondering if it's just not possible to use both monitors (obviously can connect 1 via the standard VGA output on the dock, but had bought the additional monitor specifically so could utilise 2).

 

Any ideas or advice would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks

Michael

Been doing a bit more research into this. The dock has two Display Port connections directly underneath the DVI connections. Would purchasing something like the StarTec DisplayPort to VGA video adapter solve the problem?

What video chip (Intel only or hybrid Intel-AMD or Intel-nvidia) do you have?
