Having now looked through this thread, and also followed up some research myself regarding Windows itself being unable to do what you want.

If the last above suggestion from terry1966 is not what you can work with, the only solution is to send the two USB monitors back and obtain monitors with VGA ports.

Providing the laptop does have a VGA out port, you can buy VGA splitters which can provide a lot more than just the two monitors you require, bearing in mind, those with more than two outputs do require to be powered.

Considering that Windows cannot do this in itself, using USB monitors, the VGA route is the only one that can work.

I just had the problem solved a few days ago by installing a piece of software called Actual Multiple Monitors. It took over a week to configure it properly, but I now get the same image on all my monitors, which was my original goal.

 

Thanks so much to those who offered advice and help.

thanks for the update, and well done on finding the solution. :thumbsup:

 

never having used a usb monitor or running more than dual displays on a windows intel graphics pc i've never encountered this problem myself so it's nice to know there is a working solution out there, even if it does require installing 3rd party software to control the displays.

 

can you please mark this topic as solved and link the best answer to your post mentioning the software you used.
