Hi, I searched the forums but could not find an answer.

I have a Dell laptop with a ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650.

I have 2 external i-inc monitors, one with VGA and HDMI, and one with HDMI , VGA and DVI. Right now, I can get 2 of the 3 monitors (one being the laptop screen) to be displayed and primary and extended. As teh card has VGA and HDMI out.

Is it possible to set up this card to display my primamry on my laptop screen, and extend the display to the 2 others, for a 3 monitor setup?

I read that I can use the display port and eyefinity, but am confused on how exactally to do this, and if it will allow the laptop display to be the primary.

Thank You in advance.

if it won't let you select all three in eye infinity (or within the OS resolution setting) then most likely not, sorry.

Sorry, but I don't understand. How do you get the Eyefinity installed.

In the monitor setup, I can only have 2 active monitors.

It's my understanding, May be wrong, that if I get a display port adapter, that frees up one video output port on the video card.
