Oh, excuse me. There is only one output for a monitor.

IF you are using VGA, you are going to need something like this: VGA to Two VGA. If you have different output (HDMI, DVI) just let me know and I can find something else that will work.

I posted an answer, but since it has a link you will have to wait a bit. Sorry... Mods are reviewing it.

Thumbs up Re: Simple Question. I have two monitors I would like to hook up. The tower only has

Actually, instead of waiting I can just tell you. If you have a VGA output, you will need a VGA to Two VGA adapter. Just search that on Google. They are only like $5-$10.

I don't think that's what TonyWBrown wants since an adapter like that will only allow the same output to 2 different monitors. I'd be willing to bet he wants to be able to show different content on each monitor.

If he only has 1 vga output then he will need to get something like this: DisplayLink Store :: Adapters

He could also possibly get a different video card that has multiple outputs or a 2nd video card.

Is that one output from the motherboard or do you have a video card?

System specs would be helpful.

Hey Strollin, one of the monitors has a usb port but the other doesn't. Will that be an issue using the adapter? Also is the way you mentioned where I can view different content in the monitors? Thanks
