I’m looking to connect my Pavilion X360 laptop to 2 external monitors via HDMI. The laptop has USB ports, a USB C port and one HDMI. I’ve tried docking stations that connect to the laptop via USB-C, however I’ve since found out that connecting that way doesn’t support data transfer for displays. Any ideas on other products out there that will work? PS, I want to extend the screens and not just mirror.
Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, I have a few troubleshooting steps we could try to fix the issue:
Computers and TVs have a wide variety of video connection types. The video connection on your computer must match the connection on your TV or monitor.
NOTE: If your PC only has DVI and your TV does not have a DVI port, you can use a special adapter or converter cable.
Select a connection type based on your second monitor.
Monitor: VGA or DVI cable
TV: Video (composite) or S-video cable
High Definition TV: DVI or HDMI cable
Connect the TV or monitor to the computer using the cable you chose.
Connect a power cable to the TV or monitor, and then turn it on.
TV connections only: Change the TV video input source to match the video source connection from the computer (Line-1, Video-1, HDMI, etc.). Refer to documents that came with the TV for instructions.
Depending on the TV, the image quality might not be as good as that of a monitor.
Turn on the computer.
Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.
