Connect 2 external Monitors to HP Pavillion Gaming 15-AK032NG Notebook

HP Recommended
HP Pavillion Gaming 15-AK032NG
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have a HP Pavillion Gaming 15-AK032NG Notebook, which works fine and I’m satisfied with it. But it’s not a “business notebook”, it’s 4-year-old and has no USB-C, DisplayPort, Thunderbolt or something similar. It has only one HDMI port and USB 3.

On other side I have 2 “Dell P2421DC” Monitors with which I work from another business notebook (for my job).

Is it possible to connect the 2 Monitors to the HP Notebook Pavillion Gaming 15-AK032NG, so that I can extend the monitors (not only duplicate)? I agree with every solution (external hardware) that works. As I research for a solution, I found none, none that I can be sure it works.

For any idea, thank you in advance!

 

Best Regards

Emanuil

Sorry, but no one can tell you for sure because there is an element of uncertainty in this.  Connecting the HDMI port to a monitor, if it has an HDMI input, will most certainly work.  But if that needs an adapter to connect the HDMI cable to the monitor -- no one knows if that is going to work or not because adapters are not reliable.  The USB situation is even worse because you need an adapter and cable for that, too.

 

I have a USB port connected to a monitor and I had to go through three identical model adapters until I found one that worked.

What do you mean by "The USB situation is even worse because you need an adapter and cable for that, too"? If a I have a monitor over HDMI and another one over USB with whatever another adapter or/and cable, no problem. But what cable and adapter do I need to connect a monitor over USB to my notebook?

I already explained why that is worse in my comments -- in that I had to go through several USB adapters until I found one that worked.

 

We can not tell you specifically what cable and adapters -- because the cables depend on the jacks on the PC and the jacks on the monitors.  If the two have different jacks, then you have to go online and look for an adapter that allows you to connect the cable to the monitor or to the PC.
