Goodmorning...
I want to connect another monitor to my laptop Acer aspire es1...but it has only 1 hdmi port. I already tried a hdmi splitter...but that doesnt work..because it shows the same picture on both monitors...and i want to expand my desktop. My acer had an Intel hd graphics 520 video card. What am i doing wrong?

Contact Acer and ask them what video ports their laptop provides.
