i have a laptop with 1 vga output, purchased a splitter box. I cannot figure out how to split the screens any advise on how to do that. Both screens display the same thing. Thank you in advance.

You can't unless you have another video output on your laptop or a thunderbolt connector. You can't do separate displays off of a single vga, Hdmi, or display port. The only way you could do multiple separate displays from a single connector is if you have a thunderbolt cable connected to a hub.
