Unable to connect multiple monitors to T570 and ThinkPad Basic Dock

I have a Lenovo T570 (Type 20JW, 20JX) Laptop (ThinkPad) and ThinkPad Basic Dock (40A00000WW).   I have a monitor plugged into the VGA connection on the docking station.  I have another monitor connected to my laptop with HDMI.  When the laptop is docked, the display will show on the laptop and the monitor connected to the dock.  The monitor connected via HDMI goes black.  When the laptop is off the dock, the HDMI monitor works.  Is there a way to get both monitors to work without having to buy a different docking station?  I know the ideal situation would be to get a different dock with 2 connections on it, but I was hoping not to have to pay for another dock.
