Solved!

Dual Screens, but I can only use one at a time...

HP Omen (Tower)
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

So, I have two monitors (One is a LG, the other is a HP) and I can only connect one at a time. My Omen does have one for a display port (the big white chunky connector) and one for just a normal HDMI. I would love to have two screens at once, but I cant seem to have two monitors going at once. Can anyone please help?

What is your HP Omen ? Please check its label at the back.

The Display port should be smaller or same size with the HDMI port, I believe that port is a DVI port. Again I need to know what is your machine.

My machine is the HP Omen, not the big box, just the tower. Right now I have my LG plugged into it as my main display. But my HP monitor that I have wont work at all, and is plugged in via HDMI. There is no label on the back saying what type of PC it is. All I have is a model number.

Hi,

 

Since I don't know the product/model of your computer, sorry I can't help. Please try to get model/product from HP Support Assistant

 

(a) Double click HP Support Assisstant.

(b) It will give a screen with the following information.

(c) We only need to know the product number. Please do not post any other numbers

 

Regards.

Hi,

 

That is the information we need.  It is an OMEN by HP Desktop PC - 870-119 :

 

   https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/omen-by-hp-870-100-desktop-pc-series/12079703/document/c0524108...

 

It has 2 sets of ports at the back. For video we only use

 

  

Figure : GeForce 960 ports
  1. DisplayPort: 3
  2. HDMI
  3. DVI-I

and it  Supports up to four displays at the same time.

 

Now my question: have you tried a different HDMI cable ?

 

Regards.
