It turned out to be some conflict between the Windows setup and the nVidia setup.

It's now working exactly the way I want it - when the laptop is stand-alone, it displays on its own onboard screen. When it's in the dock, it shuts off the onboard screen and displays on the two external screens. AND in much higher resolution (1600x1200 on each screen).


Back to work, me!

According to HP's website, your model can support two external
monitors at the same time if the onboard display is disabled. One
external can be connected to either the VGA or the DVI and the other
to the displayport. You can't use the VGA and DVI at the same time.

For all three displays, you'll need at least one of John's USB adapters.

I don't have anything for DisplayPort, and don't want to bother buying the cable (with my own dime) unless I'm pretty sure it'll work. So far...  not so much.
