I need help please. I am trying to connect two additional monitors to my laptop (Lenovo Ideapad Z580). I need the monitors to both extend the display and not just duplicate the display. The Laptop has a HDMI and VGA ports. It seems the laptop is reading both but cannot extend both displays. When a try under Control panel>Display>Screen resolution: and try to extend display on both monitors i get the following error (The display settings could not be saved. Please try a different combination of display settings)
Can the Lenovo Idea pad Z580 run 2 additional screens and extend them both? If not, are there any adapters to solve this problem?

Hello Ubracoolious! Welcome to Community Forums.
Your machine has two display outputs, you can only extend the display from the laptop screen (screen 1) to the external monitor (screen 2). VGA and HDMI will serve as screen 2, hence it will show the same display.
