First thing to try is using VGA and HDMI outputs at the same time. If your graphics card can handle it, you're all set. Some can, some can't. When you have both monitors plugged in, open the Display Properties control panel and try to get them both to work. This may require disabling the laptop's screen. If that doesn't work you may need to look into buying a docking station with two monitor ports.
