Connecting an external monitor to your desktop computer
If your HP computer comes with the H-I41-uATX (Eton) motherboard, then it has integrated graphics using Intel Graphics Media Accelerator x4500 and it also support the PCI Express x16 graphics card. Here you have to remember that they are not used concurrently. Either the PCI Express x16 slot or the integrated graphics is usable at one time. But if your motherboard supports dual monitors including the integrated one, then connect a second monitor according to the instructions of the manufacturer and enable dual-view in the operating system.
Enabling dual view in the Windows operating system
The process of enabling dual-view in the Windows XP operating system is discussed here. On the desktop, right click your mouse then click 'Properties'. When the Display Properties dialog box appears, click on the 'Settings' tab. Select the external monitor from the Display list. If there is no multiple monitors listed, then the hardware of your computer may not support dual-view. For more information contact the computer manufacturer. Then select the check box of the Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor. Then click 'Identify'. When the operating system displays large numbers to identify your monitors, drag and drop the monitor icons. Then click 'OK'. In Windows 7, go to the 'Start', then 'Control Panel', there click 'Appearance and Personalization'. Now adjust screen resolution. Then click the multiple displays drop down list, and click 'Extend these displays', then click 'OK'.
When you want to connect an external monitor to your present system, assure that the motherboard of your computer supports multiple monitors. If the motherboard directly supports the second monitor, or with the help of a graphics card, use the recommended hardware to connect the external monitor and then enable the mode of view with the operating system. Here you should remember that more monitors will consume more power. Therefore, you have to think about the power also.
