HP laptop does not recognize external monitors when connect through a docking station

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Model: 14-dq2045cl

Laptop does not recognize the external monitors when I connect external monitors to the laptop with a docking station.  It works fine with I connect the monitor directly to the laptop.
