How to connect your Laptop to 2 monitors?

Hi all

We have this iron:
Monitor 27 inch
Monitor 24 Duje
The HP Elitebook 2570p with no HDMI output(One VGA output)

Now I'm working on a single external display 27, I want to connect a second monitor 24 inch.
Experimenting with the possibility of Extension of the screen( with the laptop, I noticed that the transition between screens need to be in certain area(Probably because of the differences in extensions).
Plus not satisfied with what the primary monitor recognizes the Laptop, but his work is not convenient.

Question: What to buy(Adapter, external graphics card, some kind of smart adapter) to
It was convenient to work with at least two external monitors
For the future connectivity 3,4

Thank you

no HDMI output(One VGA output)

But there is DP
Laptop connectors 2 x USB 3.0 (1 shared with E-SATA), USB 2.0, Display port, RJ-45, VGA, headphone/microphone, connector for docking station
So to connect 2 - no problem.

As already wrote above you have DisplayPort, that's very good, because it has adapters for all types of interfaces. If the graphics card supports MST, you can through a special hub or a monitor that supports MST to connect up to three monitors.
For convenience, you can purchase the docking station for your laptop, to the entire switching (monitors, keyboard, mouse, power supply) to connect to the station, and if you want to pick up a laptop, then just otselot from the station without disconnecting/connecting all the handful of wires.
Yes, DisplayPort is great, but... to get the adapter with it was a problem, including in the Chinese online stores. Epplovskogo adapter DisplayPort-mini - without problems, in a wide range, but full-sized (not mini) could not be found. I have a full sized - laptop, desktop, if that. - Zackery.Bruen26 commented on July 9th 19 at 11:27

: Your links only on HDMI, on AliExpress found on VGA, also a lot cheaper. Thanks for the tip. - Zackery.Bruen26 commented on July 9th 19 at 11:36
: Keep in mind that VGA is still analog inreface created a long time ago for CRT monitors and normally draws only HD resolution on FHD is already soap starts and the monitor turned into a regular TV. So if you want a quality picture, try to use digital interfaces. - anabel_Blick28 commented on July 9th 19 at 11:39
Thanks for the reply. Couldn't find if it supports my video Card MST. How to check can you? I really like the idea to buy from a displayport splitter. All the same, if my card supports MST, what splitter would you recommend? Thank you - Auste commented on July 9th 19 at 11:42
Honestly with the DP still in practice did not face, especially in multi-monitor configurations, I only know that he supports such things, to determine support, bad, or look at the specs of the card, or even stupid to try to write in support of HP, doesn't BYuT. - anabel_Blick28 commented on July 9th 19 at 11:45
Came with Aliexpress the adapter DisplayPort->VGA works fine. Here is just one caveat with it: connected monitor is always marked first change that I failed, only managed to make a second key. But these are trifles, the main thing - turned from the processor and integrated video card to run three monitors. - Zackery.Bruen26 commented on July 9th 19 at 11:48
: And I think you will not be able to change the room because the room monitor assigns the graphics card on the priority outputs, but you can choose any of the monitors to designate and change the map placement of the monitors. - anabel_Blick28 commented on July 9th 19 at 11:51

What a difference he considers the main OS?
You can force the program to open directly on the external monitors.
Sorry that got. But how to get the program to open there, or there? - Zackery.Bruen26 commented on July 9th 19 at 11:31
: a lot of ways. Under *nix, for example, knows how Awesome it's easy. And the other is full. - Camron_To commented on July 9th 19 at 11:34
: UV. But if the program on Windows opened in the wrong monitor? - Camron_To commented on July 9th 19 at 11:37
: Similarly. Full software support. I suspect that in Windows 10 it can be built-in features. - Zackery.Bruen26 commented on July 9th 19 at 11:40

if there is both VGA and HDMI inputs, you can use special software
