I have Acer Spin 5  SP513-52N

processsor Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-8250U CPU @ 1.60GHz 1.80 GHz

GPU  Intel(R) UHD Graphic 620

 

If I want to use two extra monitors with my laptop, does this work with a HDMI Spliter?

I tested it, and I can only read the laptop screen as 1 and the others as 2.  What setting should I change to make this work?  Is 2 Extra monitors even possible?  If yes  what would be the option for this to make this work.

No, you can't. The HDMI protocol simply does not support the connection of two independent monitors to a single port. All a splitter will do is get the same image displayed on both monitors, as you have seen.

In order to support two independent external monitors, you will need your HDMI connector for the first monitor and one of the following for the second monitor:

  1. A DisplayPort connector on the laptop and a DisplayPort-to-HDMI adapter/cable.
  2. A USB-C connector that also supports DisplayPort Alternate Mode (this can be a Thunderbolt port or just USB-C connector with DisplayPort support) and a USB-C-to-HDMI adapter/cable. Here is an example of such an adaptor: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B078LFX4FW
  3. A USB-based Graphics adapter that gives you another HDMI connector. Here is an example of such an adapter: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07TT6WZ7V.

Hope this helps,
