ENVY 20-030: I need an external monitor and there is no port on the machine.

All-in-one ENVY 20-030
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

I have an ENVY 20-030 [no port for an external monitor].

 

I am told that I can use the USB3 port, with a USB-to-VGA or HDMI or DVI connector.:

 

Which connector is best?

 

Does HP sell a siutable connector?

Hello;

Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!

 

I use a USB-to-VGA adapter to drive a third monitor for my desktop and find it works great!  I can't use it for videos or gaming, because the USB 2.0 port doesn't provide enough bandwidth, but I have the other two monitors for that.

 

What you buy is up to you.  If you use a USB 3.0 port, then you would have enough bandwidth to drive either HDMI or DVI -- and the choice then depends on how much you want to spend.

Good Luck

Thanks.

 

You sure are quick to reply !

 

The unit is at my office and I can't access it until tomorrow: the answer however is that it doesn't matter which connector I use - an "el cheapo" will do.

 

Thank you V.M.

 

Gervais.

Hi,

 

This is depend on port or ports on your monitor. You have to buy the one which can be connected.

 

Regards.
