One in the HDMI cable, and the other one in VGA?

I have WIndows 7 and HP g42-469LA

So I tried it, and the 2 monitors work but the laptop gets black.

It looks like I can not have the: laptop and 2 monitors. Would be 3 screens in total. Only 2.
Only 2 monitors at the same time (laptop + 1 monitor) or (2 monitors but laptop gets black)

Is this correct or I am doing something wrong?

Thanks
