USB-C troubleshooting (Connecting HDMI/external monitors)

HP Recommended
HP Notebook 15s-fq1003na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I really need to connect a second monitor to my laptop to make working from home easier. 

 

I have tried:

 

I can connect 1 HDMI direct to my laptop, this works fine - however not ideal as for ease I would like to unplug 1(or2) cable, not the 4 I currently have (Mouse/Keyboard, USB headset, HDMI Screen, power) - that and other reasons.

 

The USB C docking station allows my keyboard/mouse/headset to work but the Screens do not. 

 

The ideal scenario would be:

  • 2 external screens, both on an extend basis (connected via whatever I have to buy to make that work, ideally what I have though)
  • Laptop would be docked/closed lid and aside 
  • external keyboard/mouse combo
  • USB headset

It is driving me INSANE, please help 😄

Its specs

 

         https://support.hp.com/au-en/document/c06543040

 

It ONLY has 1 USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C™ (Data Transfer Only, 5 Gb/s signaling rate) port, the dock it NOT fully compatible and won't give option to connect to the second monitor nor power. I should work with Mouse/Keyboard, USB headset and external USB drive(s).

 

Regards.
