    Good day. I have a newer HP laptop with plenty of SS - USB3 connections. And one HDMI output. I wish to connect 2 external monitors. I have one already working on the HDMI port. How to add the second one? I need to run 10' of cable for that one. Had thought of USB cable to USB to HDMI connection. Then thought DVI to USB connection. Please be so kind as to advise your thoughts.

    What's the model name and exact model number(M/N) of your HP laptop?
    What's the exact product number(P/N) and serial number(S/N) on it?
    Once it's been correctly identified, it should be easier for the experts here to help you.

    The How to - Monitor Display or Graphics section should be helpful to you.

    USB ports can output and input so devices like the one in Oddba11's link should work.
