How to hook up dual monitors

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion p2-1113w Desktop P
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi,

 

I have a little bit of an older HP - but it works great and I really don't need a new one yet....so, I am looking to add another monitor; so that I have dual monitors for more work space. 

 

Problem is, there are no more ports on the back of the tower to hook 2 more plugs into..I am not very tech savvy..so, I am not sure how to describe this...

 

But there is a blue and a white coming out of my monitor hooking into the appropriate color coded ports in my cpu...

So, if I buy another exact monitor - HP s2031 - how do I hook that up??

 

Some kind of splitter????  I'm just confused...

 

Thanks much!  kschleigh

@kschleigh, welcome to the forum.

 

You will have to buy a USB 2.0 video adapter.  There a four USB 2.0 ports in the Back I/O ports.  StarTech makes very good products.  I suggest contacting their Tech Support using their Chat Live or Email option.  They will be able to help you choose the best adapter for your system.  This will save you a lot of frustration and time.
