Having 2 displays connected to a laptop

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello,

So I'm not really sure if this is possible. My laptop only offers one hdmi output and one usb c, but as far as I can tell this exact usb c can't carry video (it doesn't have any lighting signs next to it). But as I was searching the internet I found people that bought an usb a to vga adapter of some kind and then hooked it up to laptop. It just worked and the laptop that they were using wasn't really up to date. Now I'm confused. Can I somehow get two video output on my laptop using some kind of adapters?

beside usb c and hdmi I also got one usb 3.0 and 2x usb 2.0. 

gpu: Nvidia geforce mx150

cpu: intel i7 8550u

 

 

Thanks for all the help

There are USB to hdmi adapters like this image.png.4507605954a70592feb38fb7d0e69eff.png

I would hook up an hdmi monitor for sure.

as for the other one, use the adapter

Could I use an adapter just like this but with usb c on the other end?

Im sure, it might depend on your USB C. The adapters look cheaper for USB C, so you could always return it, if it doesn't work
