HP Pavilion 15-cw1507sa 15.6” AMD Ryzen 5 Laptop - 256 GB SSD, Silver
i am trying to extend the desktop across 2 external monitors connecting via HDMI is working fine connecting to USB-C is not giving a signal
I have tried a usbC to hdmi adapter and a more expensive adapter which has altmode but no joy
any help appreciated

1 USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C™ (Data Transfer Only, 5 Gb/s signaling rate);
2 USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A (Data Transfer Only)
I'm afraid none of the above has the capability of video conversion,
And hence, USB to HDMI is not an option.

Many thanks for your reply.
when I purchased this laptop I was informed by the sales person that I could connect upto 3 monitors
1 to duplicate the main desktop and a further 2 to extend.
At the moment I have 1 extended desktop working well via HDMI
is there anything I can purchase as external hardware to extend to another monitorS via the HDMI socket Or have I reached my limit with 1 extended monitor
sorry for all the questions I do appreciate your help

To will need to use an HDMI Splitter which will enable to you connect more than 1 external monitor to your Laptop
