    The full description of the display adapter is: " Intel(R) G45/G43 Express Chipset (Microsoft Corporation - WDDM 1.1) ".

    Can this computer support dual monitors? Not the same thing on each screen, an extension of the desktop, each screen to display something else.

    The computer itself has one VGA port and one HDMI port.

    The two screens I have, both have VGA and one also has DVI.

    It might....AFAIK, no way to tell unless you hook two screens to it. Keep in mind though you'll need an HDMI to dvi adapter for the one screen

    Yes it can as long as there are two outputs on the motherboard which you say there is.
