I need to connect 2 external monitors to Lenovo Ideapad 720s but it's not working! :(

Having trouble here would be super grateful for your help. I connected one external monitor to this alptop but failed in connecting a second monitor to it. My Ideapad 720s is a 4k laptop and so are both my external monitors. When I connected the HDMI cable into the USB port on my laptop the monitor was VERY blurry! So I was forced to use this adapter to plug the HDMI into it and the adpater pligged into the USB-C on my laptop. This is the adapter I used: https://www.bestbuy.com/site/j5creat...?skuId=5930600

 

So that adapter worked to connect one external monitor but I wasn't able to get a 2nd monitor to work sucessfully. I don't know what I'm doing wrong?

 

Thanks for any input!

I don't know if that adapter is designed to drive 2 monitors. 

 

I had the same requirement and ended up buying this hub.  It is designed to plug into the USB 3 port and then it will drive 2 monitors while the laptop monitor is on as well.  With this setup, i run 4k on the laptop and 2 x 27" 1920 x 1080

I got a used one for around $40 and it works great.
