Hello,

So I am helping someone to connect 2 monitors to a laptop, but something just isn't right.

Monitor 1: Samsung monitor.
Monitor 2: Lenovo ThinkVision.
Laptop: Lenovo ThinkPad.

Monitor 1 is connected to the laptop via HDMI, and Monitor 2 is connected to the laptop via USB-C.
There is only 1 HDMI port on the laptop, and the USB-C from Monitor 2 is also powering/charging the laptop.

When everything is connected, only the Lenovo monitor is working.
When I disconnect the HDMI cable that is connected to the Samsung monitor, only the Lenovo monitor is working.
When I disconnect the USB-C cable that is connected to the Lenovo monitor, only the Samsung monitor is working.
So both monitors is working, but won't work together at the same time.

Have tried to restart and updated everything on the laptop.

Any ideas or suggestions to why it is acting like this and how to fix it? :)

Regards
Chrixy
