    Hi all,

    I have a laptop with both VGA and HDMI. Is there a way to connect two VGA monitors to the laptop? If I buy an HDMI to VGA and connect one monitor to the VGA socket and the other to the HDMI (using the adapter), will that work?

    Thanks in advance.

    EDIT: I want to extend the monitors not duplicate.

    Check your manuals and be sure that both ports can be used simulaneously.
    Check the spec and make sure both ports support the resolution you want to use.
    If above is ok...should work.

    If your laptop supports a docking station, a dual monitor docking station would be best.
