Important:

This will not work for Gaming unless you have dedicated graphics card AND your card can support the resolution that can sum up the resolutions of each monitors (ex: 1366 * 768 into 3 = 4098 * 768).

Step 1: Preparing the Mount Holder

  • Measure and cut the sheet suitable for you display.
  • Use super glue for pasting two sheets.
  • Drill holes wherever the wall mounts needed to be fitted.

Step 2: Make Sure You've Given Proper Support

  • Design the holder by keeping the weight of wall mount in the mind.
  • We can't lift the laptop and carry around with the monitors attached to it.
  • Monitors I chose is weightless but wall mounts are heavy as it supposed to be.

Step 3: Connectivity

  • Use either VGA or HDMI port AND USB 3.0 to connect 2 monitors.
  • We can't use both VGA and HDMI together. (I don't know the technical stuff. Google it if you want).
  • Use USB splitter/adapter to get additional ports to power up the monitors.

Note:

  • USB 3.0 to VGA converter should come with separate CD for driver. It will not work otherwise even for latest Windows 10 pro. Make sure that before you buy.
