Hello can somebody tell me if I can get any monitor with my Dell so I can have two or maybe 3 monitors working at once?

Is this a laptop, Tower or AIO?

You should be able to add a second monitor with no issue. You'll need to look at the back of the PC for how many and what type of monitor ports the unit has.

Hi thanks for that information but I'm confused as my PC has no hardwires. Am I still able to connect to other monitors?

Hello and welcome to TSG!!

On the rear, just to the left of the Ethernet connector you should have two or four HDMI ports. If you have two, one is an input and the other is an output. You should be able to connect another monitor to the output port. The input port is for use if you want to have a DVD/Blu-Ray player, or other HDMI source use the monitor portion of your All-In-One system.

Come again? The HDMI connector is on your PC ... It appears to be a normal, standard sized HDMI connector.

Perhaps the OP is talking about the cable itself?

@Deano51 Which of these connections are you referring to?

If you have a second monitor with any of these connections other than the HDMI one, then you will need an adapter.
