I have solved the problem now - by not trying to solve it - bit of lateral thinking! I dug out an HDMI splitter, coopted the HDMI to VGA adapter from my main system, and setup a USB3 to VGA adapter to replace it. Now I have the laptop HDMI output connected to the splitter, which then forks to both the stereo DAC and the HDMI to VGA adapter, and thence to the second screen. So - I still have all three screens on my office laptop, and two screens on the down stairs laptop.

I am a bit squirrely about PC bits and bobs, and have drawers full of stuff that "might come in useful one day". I guess that day came for a couple of bits today! Shucks | :-\
