Two Monitors ? ?

  1. I want to run two monitors. Do I need to buy a second monitor card to install in my computer ? ? ? . . . or is there another way ?
  2. Check to see if your video card has 2 ports. If so, all you have to do is hook up another monitor and activate it through Display.

    If you've got only an "onboard" video port, you'll have to get a dualhead card which fits your mobo.
  3. no. only one port.
  4. Is it "onboard" video or a separate video card?
  5. I don't know. At the back of my computer there is only one port for one monitor. I want to have two.
  6. There are 2 places your monitor might plug into..

    1. In the back panel, among the other "connectors", or

    2. Among the "expansion slots".. if you have a tower style case, the slots will be at the bottom.
  7. Yes, it's on one of the expansion slots at the bottom. .. that also has the audio jacks in the same one as well.
  8. Do you know the brand and model of the computer?
  9. I think you've got something confused... the audio jacks would not normally be on a video card. (Maybe an "audio out" on an ATI All-In-Wonder??)
