Windows 7: eyefinity on laptop 4650

eyefinity on laptop 4650

I have my laptop, with HDMI and VGA ports, an old CRT screen with VGA, and a new 24" screen with HDMI (and VGA, but won't use that).
So anyway, my laptop is a year old toshiba satellite a500 (psam3a-04000e), if it helps, with an ATI mobility radeon 4650. I was wondering if it supported eyefinity, and if I could use it in tri-screen with the CRT in the VGA port, and the new monitor in the DVI.

Short answer, no.

Eyefinity is supported on the HD 5xxx series gpus and a further requirement is that at least one monitor has to use a DisplayPort connection.

For what you're asking you need at least the 5430 on a laptop to get Eyefinity support,

3 Monitors - ATI eyefinity
For a while I have been using 3 1600x900 displays, that works fine. Now I have upgrade to 3 1920x1080 displays and I have a problem. 2 displays work at 1920x1080 but the display-port display only works at 1440x900. I have a ATI certified display port adapter. My card is ATI Radeon HD 5770.

Eyefinity question
Not a problem, but an annoyance to me: Anyone know of a way to prevent apps/windows openening to the full desktop? I have Hydravision installed and I'm using the Grid feature, but it allows attaching to a grid after the app/window is already opened to the full desktop.
