    Smile laptop monitor + 2 more monitors splitter config

    Hello all.

    I have a Toshiba satellite with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2400.

    I have bought a VGA splitter and intend to use it to plug this laptop to 2 more screens.

    I used to plug 1 extra screen and there was no problem, ubuntu autodetected and worked.

    However, I have now plugged 2 monitors via the splitter cable and the 2 monitors display the same image.

    The image is optimized for the bigger [Samsung Syncmaster BX2331] Sam monitor.

    The 2 monitors are:

    Samsung Syncmaster BX2331

    Samsung Syncmaster 710n

    I must make an effort to solve this issue because alot is at stake and at this point I would like to assure that I will try all suggestions for I desperately need this to work.

    Thankyou in advance =)

    Edit: I have seen severa l other posts related to this issue and it seems that my graphics card only allows for 2 displays.

    Is there a way of still configuring for 3?
