Extending Desktop to second monitor DOES NOT WORK..help?

3rdstone3rdstone Posts: 3Member New User
I just bought this Aspire V17 Nitro Black Edition Laptop for my studio setup. Chose it because of the thunderbolt connectivity to my UAD preamp.
No matter what I do, I cannot get the second monitor to extent the desktop using the HDMI port.
I have followed dozens of tutorials: windows 10 ones, nvidia ones, intel ones, acer display ones (my second monitor).
Absolutely NONE of the suggestions have worked to extend the desktop.

I can get it to duplicate it using a resolution of 1080i (not p), but not extend it. This is unacceptable.

If anyone has a different solution, I'm all ears. If not what would you do if you were me?
Contact Acer directly under a warranty type claim? What? Any other suggestions?

Thanks...
