    Hi Pood Peoples,

    I am hoping someone can help me please.

    I have just got a new HP A6360A computer and wish to run two monitors. (My last Compaq was easy, the graphics card had a blue and a white plug and I just plugged each monitor into a socket. Thats gave me a huge screen area.) The computer specs can be found here.

    The new HP's graphics card has one DVI socket, a HDMI socket and a composit TV connector (S video?). The graphics card is a nVidia GeForce 8500GT 3D PCI-Express.

    The monitors are:
    ViewSonic 22 inch VX2235wm (with both VGA and HDMI plugs).
    Phillips 19 inch 190x6 (also with both VGA and HDMI plugs).

    So, the question is how do I hook up both monitors please?

    Looks like its an HP customised version of the normal video card, but supporting only one monitor.

    Looking at the card on Google it should have DVI and VGA, but the HP specs only show DVI.
