    G74SX-XT1 and Dual External Monitors

    Since there is a VGA and an HDMI connector can the G74SX-XT1 support dual externals with the laptop display closed possibly?

    IIRC, you can do one or the other, but not both.

    I had this same question. Just to make sure I clearly understand, the answer is that you CANNOT run dual external monitors with this laptop?

    I'm currently using the laptop screen and one external 23" monitor, but when I am at home it would be nice if I could use both my 23" external monitors.

    Since you have the monitors go ahead and give it a try but most likely it is designed to only have one output connector active at a time.
