Trying to add a second monitor with a DPDVI cable

HP Recommended
Pavilion p6674y
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I have a 10 year old desktop that I'm trying to add a second monitor that my employer has provided.  There is only 1 monitor port on it so I bought a DPDVI connector and it seems to be working but still can't get 2 monitor to work.  Someone I work with says my computer may not be equipped for a second monitor graphics wise.  I just have it as it came out of the box.

Its specs


Given no upgrade for the last 10 year, its specs says:  Integrated graphics: concurrent use of the DVI and VGA ports is supported.



That means you can use port 2 and port 11 at the same time. Please check your cables and monitors to get them right.
