Dual Monitors 500-281

HP Pavilion 500-281 Desktop PC
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Can I use two monitors with this product?

 

It has both a VGA and a DVI.

 

I tried using a VGA to DVI adapter.

Hi there @skybrian,

 

May the Forums be with you!  It is a great place to find the help you need, from other users, HP experts, and other support personnel.  I understand that you are asking whether you can use two displays with your computer.  I am happy to help with this.

 

The quick answer to your question is yes you can.  Beyond that it is a matter of having a connection that is compatible with both the display and the graphics adapter. From your description you do not have a discrete graphics card installed and so you are using the integrated graphics.  That gives you VGA and DVI-D ports to work with. Ideally you would want to use a VGA to VGA connection on the one and DVI to DVI connection with the other.  Adapters are possible, but like any hardware sometimes certain types do not work well together.

 

You should also make sure that your drivers are all up to date, and you should refer to this document for additional help: HP Desktop PCs - Using Two or More Monitors with One Computer (Windows 10).

 

Please let me know whether that works for you, and if it does resolve your issue, please mark this post as a solution. Kudos would also be appreciated.
