2nd HDMI port blocked

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Gaming Desktop 690 0xxx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I'm trying to connect another monitor to my computer (I have the normal computer monitor, a screen drawing tablet, and this new monitor I am trying to connect), but it seems that the only HDMI port that is left is blocked by a plug. Is there any way to remove the plug or connect the monitor in another way?

What is your HP Pavilion Gaming Desktop 690 0xxx ? Looks like it has a video card. Machine with video card all video output ports on motherboard are disabled that why they are covered.


One example HP Pavilion 690-0024



The above machine has AMD Radeon RX 580 therefore NO integrated graphics.


You have to use port(s) on the video card itself.
