HP Pavilion 15-ec1003nx Gaming Laptop
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello everyone,

 

I have this laptop "HP Pavilion 15-ec1003nx Gaming Laptop". I want to buy a dock station that is compatible with my laptop.

 

Can you please help on which HP dock station to buy that is working with my laptop? I need to connect to two monitors to extend the display to them.

 

Thank you.

Hello @a7med778 

That is a very budget oriented model and only came with one HDMI port for video out. All the other ports are USB only.

You would need a powered USB to video adapter to get a second external monitor to work.

Which adapter to get depends on the resolution of your monitor.

I'm thinking you didn't find the right adapter then. Yes USB is a data only output, ergo why the need for the converter adapter.  What were the adapters you  tried specifically?

Thank you @photoray002,

 

I don’t recall the adapters I have tried because it was inside a computer shop. 

 

So if the USB is a data transfer only output, is there any adapter compatible for it to use it for second monitor?

Thank you.

Ive used them in years past, but not currently.  I don't have faith in the cheap $12 models, you get what you pay for. 

That's why you have to read through the reviews to see what others are saying. Here is one for example that I would get if it were me, based on reviews... https://www.amazon.com/Cable-Matters-SuperSpeed-Adapter-Windows/dp/B004MS0DIK?th=1
