Morning all. I have a HP laptop and an external monitor which I connect to via HDMI. I am looking to add a second external monitor; however I only have 1 HDMI port. I've looked into the idea of a splitter; but I'm unsure whether this would successfully power 2 external displays; or whether it will simply mirror them? Something like this I believe may work, but I'm not 100%? Are there other lower cost options, too? Any advice appreciated. https://business.currys.co.uk/catal...Gs-SVxbtl8Mno3uYkWBoCqHUQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds

It depends what graphics card you have in your laptop I think? The dead cert way of doing it is with a docking station, but that's not low cost. I'd try ringing HP customer support maybe?

I know it's a Radeon graphics card.

Good shout to call HP, cheers.

my work issues us with these, but probably more expensive than you want to spend money on
