I believe your problem is originating from hardware setting in your
laptop. Although it may be possible i do not know how. But I think
your hardware is preventing the displays from setting up correctly.
This is only a theory. I would recommend still waiting for a more
experienced user to respond for I do not have any experience with
setting up a duel display on a laptop.
