I just got 2 new monitors today and was wondering if it was posible to use nvidia surround monitor and have my laptop screen act as "one of the monitors". As of right now my laptop screen isnt showing up as a screen in the nvidia control panel. I have a gtx 1060 in my laptop which im guessing could easily do a 3 monitor setup. Please help.

Unless the laptop has video in no. You cant use it as one of the monitors

Connecting a monitor may disable the screen

All displays must be the same res and hz for surround. But most likely the issue is optimus so you can't use the internal monitor. It's wired to the igpu for optimus to work. The only way for 3 monitor surround would be using the mdp for 2 monitors.
