Only one display port on my HP Z2 Mini G4

HP Z2 Mini G4 Workstation (3AQ05AV)
Linux

Since about one year, I have an HP Z2 Mini G4. Today I wanted to connect a second monitor to it. I noticed then that it only has one display port, the other two display port connectors are blocked/closed. Is this because I might have ordered a cheaper/simpler model of the computer that only supports one monitor? If so, is it possible to upgrade the computer to support 2 monitors?

Hi,

I have exactly the same problem with my Z2 mini G4 Performance model (3AQ05AV / Windows 10 Professionnel 64 bits Version: 17763.973).

 

An old post was created about that problem but the solution was not published :

Did you found a solution ?

Hi!

My HP Z1 Mini G4 model is "Mini Performance – no Nvidia/AMD graphics". It has only one DisplayPort. According to the technical specs it is possible to connect up to two display on this model by getting and installing an HP Port Flex IO card either with a DisplayPort connector or with an HDMI connector.

I bought this card: HP HDMI Port Flex IO (400/600/), article nr 3TK74AA. It costed about 15 EUR. I installed it in the computer and it works very well. I have now two displays connected the computer.

Hi Johan/JN55,

 

I already installed a Thunderblot interface int the Flex IO port.

By default, the Z2 mini G4 has 3 display port and it seems that only one is operational.

The two others should be.

I will try to contact HP support.

 

Regards,

Nicolas.
