2 monitors on Pavillion P6000

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I want to add another monitor to use in extend mode ( I think) - have a lot of windows open when working - NO interest in anything fancy for gaming etc. .  There are a vga and dvi ports onboard - but I don't think I could use both?  So what kind of video card can I use to connect another monitor (it's Dell that can use VGA, DVI, HDMI)  from what I've seen the VGA cards are least expensive.

 

Thanks in advance

Thank you for posting on the HP Support Community.

 

Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, I have a few troubleshooting steps we could try to fix the issue:  

Connect the second display:

Computers and TVs have a wide variety of video connection types. The video connection on your computer must match the connection on your TV or monitor.

NOTE: If your PC only has DVI and your TV does not have a DVI port, you can use a special adapter or converter cable.
  1. Select a connection type based on your second monitor.

    • Monitor: VGA  or DVI  cable

    • TV: Video (composite)  or S-video  cable

    • High Definition TV: DVI  or HDMI  cable

  2. Connect the TV or monitor to the computer using the cable you chose.

  3. Connect a power cable to the TV or monitor, and then turn it on.

  4. TV connections only: Change the TV video input source to match the video source connection from the computer (Line-1, Video-1, HDMI, etc.). Refer to documents that came with the TV for instructions.

    Depending on the TV, the image quality might not be as good as that of a monitor.

  5. Turn on the computer.

Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.
