HP Pavilion 570-p033w - How to hook up 3 monitors

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion 570-p033w
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)



I have a HP Pavilion 570-p033w that I am trying use with 3 monitors. Here is a link to the PC:


My issue is: On the back, all I have is 1 HDMI and 1 VGA. This system uses an onboard graphics card. I've read its very difficult to add another graphics card due to the tower design (front inputs in middle of tower). I would also have to upgrade the power supply even if I found one to fit. 


I looked at the PC's specs and found that the system can handle 3 monitors, but I am not sure how to hook them up. 


Here is the back of my PC:



The only solution I've read about is using a HDMI to USB 3.0 adapter, but I've read that there is a lag in some cases, which I'd like to avoid. 


Is there any other way that you can think of for me to hook up 3 monitors using the 1 HDMI and 1 VGA port? As in, could either of them possibly handle 2 non-mirrored monitors? 


Just looking for ideas and solutions. Thank you in advance!

with this type of configuration can be better it is satisfied with two monitors
The pc may not be powerful enough to manage three!
Otherwise, you would have to settle for an adapter like this, but it will not give the same image, I do not see the point!

where then find a graphics card very greedy, because it will be difficult to change the power supply!
Lubin motherboard specifications.
There may be examples here:
this one :
Lubin motherboard
180 W uATX Energy Star 6.0 internal power supply
Radeon RX 460

Rear I/O connectors: DisplayPort + HDMI + DVI-D

I looking at the posting and the specs, it does nat appear that you can run three monitors using your present hardware.  While the  Integrated Intel HD Graphics spec says it can support three displays, I cannot see that many outputs from the motherboard.

The specs do not even say that two monitors are supported.  I would suggest that some experimentation be done to see it the HDMI and VGA can support monitors at the same time.  If that is possible, then a USB 3.0 to HDMI/DVI adapter would be the only way to support a third monitor, without adding a graphics card.

What is the intended use for this third monitor?


These USB adapters work very well, IMHO.

There are display adapters for whatever type monitor the third one happens to be. 

The stipulation about delay " Best suited for web and productivity software, not 3D gaming or HD video playback."  I have used for video playback and they work fine expect with very high action video, then there may be a slight delay.
