    HP Probook 6550b with 120w advanced dock NZ222AA

    Any way to get 3 external monitors working with just this hardware?

    Thanks -

    In theory yes, but only if your ProBook does not have an Intel graphics chip, as that chip supports only two monitors.

    PS can confirm the onboard video chip not working with 3 monitors and advanced docking station.

    Was just speaking with a HP tech who trialed this.
