I'm wondering if there is a way to show whether my laptop can support two monitors.

I have a laptop with Intel 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller running on a Lenovo Thinkpad with a Core i5 CPU.

I failed to find with searches if my hardware can support two monitors.


Run xrandr and count the available outputs.

    However, there is no guarantee that all the outputs listed by xrandr are actually wired to physical connectors. Having multiple outputs indicated by xrandr is a necessary condition for multi-display support, but not always a sufficient one. – telcoM Oct 2 '18 at 6:35
