Adding 2 external displays to my Acer Aspire A715
 
Good afternoon forum members:D

I hope you guys can advise me which DisplayLink product to buy. I have searched so many websites, but I can't seem to figure out a way to make it work in my situation.

What do I want to achieve:

I want to connect two external monitors to my laptop. (the monitors both have the same connections: 1 x HDMI, 1 x VGA , 1 x Displayport). In total I have 3 screens. A laptop screen, and two separate monitors. These should be expandable. So it's not about duplicating the laptop image.

One monitor is connected directly to the HDMI port. (This works properly). I only have one HDMI port on my laptop. Below are the connections on my laptop.

Specifications:

I have an Acer Aspire 7 (A715-72G-76WL). With the following connections:

1x HDMI 1.4

2x USB 2.0

1x USB 3.2 (Gen1, 5Gb/s) (this USB port is unusable! Broken when laptop fell off the table with USB stick connected)

1x USB 3.2 (Gen1, 5Gb/s) type-c (no alt mode, only data)!!!

Question:

Is it possible in any way to use two monitors side by side, as well as my laptop screen and expand it?

I hope you can help me!

Yours sincerely,

Ralph
