Want to have 2 monitors to work from home. Do I need a new video card?

HP Recommended
HP model P6-2316s
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Looking to add a monitor to my PC so I can work easier from home.


System:  HP model P6-2316s.  AMD A4-3420 APU with Radeon HD Graphics 2.80ghz.  8.0GB RAM.  64bit OS, Windows 10 Pro


The video card has 2 outputs: DVI-D and VGA.  I tried to  hook up one monitor to each output, but it will not see the monitor using the VGA connection.  


I am guessing that both outputs are not active simultaneously: only one works at a time?


If not, I could use help on how to fix?  If not, can anyone recommend a video card that will work with his PC so I can use both monitors?  Note: One monitor has DVI-D and VGA inputs.  The other is actually a TV/Monitor with only HDMI input.  Both are Samsung brand.


Note: this is for business use, not gaming.


Thanks in advance...

@thos19 Welcome to HP Community!


I understand that you would like to connect the two monitors.


Do not worry. I will try to help you in this regard.


You can use the one out port from the graphics card.


However, you can purchase the splitter for that port and connect the monitor.


Please refer the below link to HP Desktop PCs - Connecting Monitors and TVs to Your PC
