I'm about to hook a Dell Vostro 3700 to a ViDock with an ATI card, a Radeon HD 5770, which will allow me to drive three (3) monitors. A preliminary read of the setup tells me to disable the video on the laptop. However, at times this laptop really functions as a laptop, i.e.
, it goes places
, and then I want the best video I can get on it
I've been looking for some program that will let me easily toggle the graphics configuration according to whether the box is being used on the desktop or is in travel mode. If memory serves, this was a problem a number of years ago when I had an enhanced video card in a docking station. (That box was either Win98SE or [probably] Win2K. This one is Win7 Ultimate, 64-bit, but I misdoubt it will be any easier
.) There was ~five (5) minutes spent reconfiguring every time I undocked or redocked.
I've been searching for something that will hold both video configs and let me toggle them according to current usage, but with no success to date. Learned long time ago that I'm not
, so I can't be the only laptop user with this problem/need, but I cannot find another one
. Hence, I'm turning to my court of last resort
Anyone here have any ideas?
