Just got a second monitor to add to my dimension 620 desktop. The tower does have 2 vga ports but when I connect the new one/2nd one the system doesnt see it. This is the first time Ive tried to do this so please be patient with me.
What model video card or do you have integrated video? To use dual monitors you must have a video card or integrated video that supports it. There is no computer named Dimension 620. You must have an Inspiron 620 which has 1 vga and 1 hdmi and integrated video. That probably doesn't support dual monitors. Look up Dual Monitors in Help for more.
Youre right, inspiron 620. It only a year old.
AMD RADEON HD 6450
And as stated it has 2 vga ports because I have both monitors into their own port currently.
If your monitors have digital inputs (DVI or HDMI), I suggest using those, not the analog VGA ports.
I dont have any extra hdmi cables. Will it work if one is using the VGA and the other the DVI?
Apparently it will. :) Confused as to why the 2nd vgs didnt work but alls well now. Thank You!!
You're welcome -- glad we could help!
