Hello  ServDeskKnows, take a look at the monitor socket you have there on your Lenovo, I can't see any references to this with your link but what you can consider is Dual monitor extenders, adapters, or a KVM switch
see the checklist here then work from there

Hi,

Something like this with a DP to HDMI and a DVI to HDMI would work
