I'm trying to run eyefinity with my Clevo laptop. I've tried DisplayPort+HDMI+Internal and it disables the laptop screen.

I can run all three I've ran 6 with USB dongles in Extended mode too.

My next step is buying an active DisplayPort Dongle, or trying a Matrox DisplayPort Hub. Does anyone have any inside advice or information that I'm missing to set up a 2x1 Eyefinity setup with my laptop?

 

Attempts:

 

DisplayPort to Dvi Cord/Internal\Tried both USB Adapter & Direct HDMI
[24inch]-------------------(Laptop)------------------[24inch]

*bump*

I called Matrox the makers for DualHead2Go. Utilizing your GPU and allowing two outputs for the single display port. Does anyone know if this works with a internal laptop screen to make 3xInfinity? The customer rep said yes bought i dought he completely understood.

You can do Eyefinity with the laptop screen, but the DisplayPort output has to be active. The Screen is passive, so an HDMI connection and a passive DP results in the monitor turning off. Unless Clevo did something weird with their hardware, an active DP adapter should be sufficient to use your internal screen with the HDMI and DP outputs for Eyefinity.
