I have a Samsung series 5 laptop (specs below) with an nVidia 630m card and I was wondering if it is possible to run two monitors in addition to the built in one simultaneously? I have one monitor hooked into the VGA port, and one into the HDMI port. Both are detected, but only one (plus built-in monitor) will work at a one time. Is this a limitation of the laptop/video card?

Most likely not. Most video chipsets don't support 3 monitors.
