I think the only solution is some 3rd party hardware like this Matrox Graphics - Products - Graphics eXpansion Module - TripleHead2Go.

I don't need DVI, the laptop has VGA and HDMI integrated, and I have a HDMI screen and a VGA screen so the problem is how to get all three working

If your laptop will not run 3 screens on its own, then you need to add the above device I linked. you can use a DVI to HDMI cable to hook up your HDMI screen.

NOTE: Can you close the other thread (report it as a duplicate). We will post in this one to find a cure.

Tested. I could not get VGA and my HDMI to DVI and my laptop monitor to run at the same time.

I was able to close the lid and the VGA and HDMI monitors both worked (still only two monitors).
