Two Monitors for 690-0013w Gaming Tower

Pavillion Gaming Deskop Model 690-0013w
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Can I please get some suggestions for how to hookup two monitors to this gaming desktop?  There appears to be only one HDMI port and no VGA port.  Not sure if I can buy a converter to convert HDMI to USB and plug the USB into the PC or not.  Maybe there's a better solution for the second monitor?

 

Thanks,


Jay

The specs of your machine is

The VGA port is disabled due to machine has   NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 (2 GB) card but the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 (2 GB) has   Rear I/O connectors: Dual Link DVI-D + HDMI + DisplayPort which supports up to three displays at the same time.

 

Does your second monitor have DVI or DisplayPort ? You can connect it using DVI or DP port, no need to use an adapter.

Thank you for the response. 

 

My 2nd monitor has a HDMI connection.  How do I connect the HDMI Monitor to DisplayPort on the machine?

 

Thank you,

A standard DP to HDMI cable will do the job. There are few versions, please use HDMI version 2.0 to get higher resolution, For example

    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32846537659.html       (cheaper)

 

All good computer shops should stock those cables (from .5m to 5m).

 

Regards.
