Beginner Question: How to set up dual monitors for HP Elitebook and Ultraslim Dock

HP Recommended
HP Elitebook 840 G1
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

So I have two EliteDisplay E231 monitors that I would like to use to set up a dual monitor display. They both have VGA connection cables but unfortunately the ultraslim dock only has one VGA port on the back. I tried plugging one into the dock and one to the computer itself but that didn't work.

 

How do I go about setting up a dual monitor set up? Is it possible?

Hi,

 

No, you can't use that way. You need a different dock which supports 2 external monitors (sometimes called DisplayLink (one word) certified), example

Would I need one or two of those? Would I need to purchase any additional cables?

Hi,

 

You need one only. From the above link it has in the box:

 
   1 x DVI-VGA adapter
   1 x USB power splitter cable
 
From your post, your 2 monitors only have VGA port therefore you need one more cable to convert from DP to VGA
