Multi monitor display for HP Envy 360 x M6

HP Envy 360 x M6 aq105dx

I would like to set up a 3-monitor (2 external and the laptop monitor) station for my HP Envy 360 x M6 aq105dx.  I was told that the video card will support it but it has been a nightmare.

 

I originally bought a simple HDMI splitter and ran 2 HDMI cords from that one split port to 2 external monitors. It would display on both monitors but the 2 external were exact copies of each other and not extended. I was told by a help chat that this is because they were both coming out of the same port. 

 

I now have 1 external monitor hooked up through my HDMI port and am in search of a way to connect the 2nd external monitor with one of the other ports. This leads to my big questions:

 

What ports on this laptop are video supported? Or which ones can I use to hook up the second external monitor?

 

I assumed that my best bet would be the USB 3.1 C port; however, I have now bought and returned THREE USB 3.1 C to HDMI adapters that will not work with the computer. Does anyone know of a USB 3.1 C to HDMI/DVI/VGA adapter that works with this laptop? (If there are any budget-friendly routes that would be much appreciated as well...I'm a poor college student so I don't need the 150 dollar USB 3 Tower will  a ton of ports)

 

As well if anyone has had success with doing 2 external monitors with this laptop please help a guy out!

I appreciate your response. However, as you can read in my original post I would prefer not to spend 150 bucks on a docking station I don't need all the extra ports. Is there an option that is a little more price effective? I really just want a USB 3.1C single adapter to HDMI or DVI

Be aware that not all USB-C ports are able to carry a video signal.

More information here: Connect a computer with USB-C port to an external display
