I have an Acer Aspire 3 and want to connect two monitors to it. However, my laptop has only 1 HDMI port and both monitors only have VGA connections. Is it still possible?

Hi igoogledit, and welcome to TSG.

One possible way to do it would be to use an HDMI to VGA converter box for one monitor. You need to make sure the box has actual electronics inside to convert the digital HDMI signals into Analog VGA video signals.

You could then use a USB based video controller with a VGA output to operate the second monitor. They exist but I have never used one and am not in a position to recommend a particular brand or model.
