Two monitors on hp pavilion slimline s3700y pc desktop?

I have a hp pavilion slimline s3700y desktop pc. is it possible that it can support two monitors?


Here are the specifications of your desktop HP Pavilion Slimline s3700y. According to the specifications, the power plant is only valued at 160 watts, and there is no card graphics PCIe x 16 on the market which help the power supply to your computer.

Depending on what you plan on both monitors, there may be several different options.

(1) Day trading, word documents, spreadsheets and other... buy an adapter USB-to-video as the EVGA UV plus + UV19 or UV39.

(2) game... not recommended

(3) source (expensive) a bigger power supply (220 watts) and new graphics card for HP

(4) source, a power more than (up to 350-400 watts) and a PCIe x 16 graphics card 'low - profile' another source.

  • Two monitors on a Pavilion 500-307 x Desktop

    I just bought a Pavilion 500-307 x Desktop and the need to run two monitors.

    The monitors have taken VGA. A monitor works fine via the VGA - DVI adapter, however attach a 2-to-1 VGA cable to the card does not work.

    Is it possible to buy a second DVI port or is there another solution?

    Sorry, I did not notice that your computer has a factory installed discrete video card. Discreet card is as follows:

    NVIDIA GeForce GT 720
    DVI (dual-link) resolution: 2560 x 1600 x 32bpp at 60 Hz
    HDMI resolution: 1920 x 1080
    VGA (via dongle) analog resolution: 2048 x 1536 x 32bpp at 60 Hz
    Support of up to two displays at the same time.

    On this basis, there are a number of ways to connect monitors to your computer. The discrete card supports DVI - D (and VGA via a dongle) and HDMI. HDMI signal is the same as DVI - D in this case.

    BETTER (recommended)

    Computer-->--> #1 monitor DVI - D cable

    --> HDMI Cable DVI - D computer--> monitor #2


    --> HDMI Cable DVI - D computer--> monitor #1

    Computer--> DVI - D to VGA dongle--> VGA cable--> Monitor #2

  • 2nd monitor for s5508f Pavilion Slimline

    For you, technicians, this may be a stupid question.  I got this PC as a gift and I don't like not really her, but today I went to hook up a monitor 20 inch Dell UltraSharp as a second monitor to see no crack DVI for monitor the first HP, but the computer was shipped with the DVI cable.  My question: my video card doesn't have this capability and if so is the gap under one of the plates on the back of the computer?  If the video card is not capable, is the capable motherboard with a video card that has a DVI and VGA connector?, or is there an adapter that will allow the two monitors connected to the VGA connector?   Is my video card: Nvidia Geoforce with CUDA...  Thank you for your help.


    The specifications of the motherboardof your PC shows only a VGA port that is disabled and is not usable when a video card is installed.  HP Partsurfer doesn't list all cards free video for your PC.

    Go to Device Manager and look at graphics cards.  What do you see?

  • two monitors for HP Pavilion 500-007 a

    I am considering buying desktop HP Pavilion 500-007 a little time. I already have two monitors TeamViewer, two support DVI - I and VGA I'm running just one of the monitors on a HP Pavilion dv7 laptop (laptop current ongoing died after 3 years continuous use).  The current system gives me two monitors to view, computer laptop 17 '' monitor and the Samsung 24 "monitor. I have also a 19 '' Samsung monitor with the same characteristics as the 24 "monitor.

    I want to know if I can use both monitors Samsung on the new office at the same time with good results.

    Both monitors have no HDMI, only DVI - I and VGA connections.

    The new system, I would like to start the monitor 24 "using the DVI - I format and the same thing with a 19" monitor, but the specs of the 500-007 a give only 1 DVI-I have the graphics card or via a connection through HDMI, and then on the motherboard, it shows a VGA port.

    What is the best: run 24 '' via DVI - I and the 19 "via VGA or execution 24" via DVI - I and get a DVI - I to HDMI converstion and run two monitors to the graphics card, or alternatively the 24 "on DVI - I and 19" on VGA.

    I use photoshop for photo editing, as I do a lot of photography work. Videos etc are not a primary, or games, but as also older in order to use the 24 "to better on Visual acuity.

    Thanks Ailsa

    This is the original factory specifications for the desktop HP Pavilion 500-007 a. According to the specification, this model has an AMD Radeon HD 8570 discrete graphics card that supports the use of two simultaneous displays. That this computer is equipped with a discreet graphics card, the video ports on-board integrated are disabled. The AMD Radeon HD 8570 graphics card has a HDMI and DVI - I output and can take care of two digital monitors or a digital and an analog monitor. The supported formats are HDMI, DVI - D and VGA (via a dongle, DVI / VGA).

    Please provide the model number of monitors you want to use with this computer. Two additional DVI - D and VGA monitors as you have indicated, here are some of the possible combinations of connection supported;


    Computer > DVI - D cable > monitor

    Technology > cable HDMI-DVI or adapter > monitor



    Technology > cable HDMI-DVI or adapter > monitor

    Computer > adapter DVI / VGA > VGA cable > monitor

  • Connect two monitors on HP Pavilion a6030n

    My office was purchased in 2007 and has the onboard nVidia GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 graphics. Is it possible to connect two monitors to this system?  There is only a single RGB connector on the back which is connected to my flat screen HP vp17 monitor.

    Tuna, no.  Should upgrade you to a dedicated with two video ports video card (1 VGA port, 1 DVI or DVI 2).  According to the use of the computer, the video card may require an upgrade of the power supply, also.

  • Two monitors on a Pavilion a1730n?

    I have an a1730n who began life running Vista. He is now running 8.1 update very happy and is used every day. He worked a HP using Nvidia monitor on board. Recently got a Dell monitor. Tried to run two monitors. Installed a Nvidia geforce in a PCI slot and plugged into the monitor. At the start, monitor and not seen a card. Main monitor restarted, changed in the PCI BIOS and the new card and monitor recognized and installed, however, old one was gone. A new bios modified for onboard as primary and old works, disappeared. Doesn't look like there are updates to the bios. Hope it works?

    P.s., monitors market video outputs. The position of the monitor is not serious.

    They must both be connected to the discrete video card, since you cannot use the integrated video port.  You will need to use an adapter (such as DVI/VGA) to connect the second monitor if they are all two VGA monitors.

    Here's a guide that should help you connect two monitors.

  • Two monitors on a Pavilion 23-b320

    I'm about to buy a 23-B320 Pavilion all-in-one and you want to know if anyone knows if you can add a second monitor to it. It doesn't have the port on the back for a second monitor, but I've heard that you can get a special cable that will allow you to turn a USB port into a video port... Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Hi Tronn42,

    You are right. You can use a converter USB to DVI (or VGA, or HDMI) video port to run on a second monitor. I did not flag 23 precisely, but he's worked on all all-in-one PC, I tried it on.

    For example, here are some converters DVI USB: & Safe = active

  • Graphics card on pavilion slimline s3700y can be improved

    I'm trying to find a way to upgrade this computer to play newer games.

    Marepbm, welcome to the forum.

    The truth is, Slimline models are not intended to be upgraded.  Their small business do not allow for good air circulation.  This will create too much heat.  Heat is your enemy.  A video card that would work with the power supply (PSU), would be much better than the integrated video.  Therefore, I do not make recommendations.  I know that's not what you wanted to hear.  However, I do not think that you would see enough performance win to justify the extra expense.

  • HP Pavilion Slimline s5580t CTO Desktop PC Hard Drive Upgrade

    Hi all

    I was wondering if I could upgrade my hard drive to an SSD and leave the existing as a backup HARD disk drive? Is there in the machine? Thank you!

    In a Slimline desktop space is quite limited, even if an SSD is format 2.5 ".

    You can probably adapt Island SSD in the Bay which was taken over by the DVD player.   Set up as startup disk so that you can enjoy the performance gain. Buy the largest capacity SSD that is in the budget to upgrade.

  • Two monitors with computer desktop Slimline?


    I want to set up two monitors with my HP Slimline.  Is this possible?  I know I have to change the graphics card to accommodate two cords.

    Slimline s5310f

    64 bit

    NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430

    LG E2360V LED monitor


    You have options:

    1. install a video card that supports two monitors. -> the best performance option

    2. use a video USB adapter/converter.   -> What are your needs of video connection? VGA, DVI orHDMI

    3. use a USB attachable monitor such as this AOC 16 "monitor.

    Option #1.

    Look here in HP Partsurfer for video cards that are used in the new Slimline models with a 220 Watt power supply.  These cards have been made specifically for the HP Slimline PC with a 220 watt power supply.

  • update graphics on slimline s3700y

    I can through my computer graphics / amd athlon x 2 5000 + 2.60 ghz / 320 Premium/Vista 3 GB hard


    I checked the desktop HP Pavilion Slimline s3700y PC specification. There card mother acacia, which has integrated video. This motherboard has a PCI Ex 16 free location. You can install a PCI Ex 16 graphics card.

    This computer has power 160W. Please ensure that the graphics card you want to install will support maximum 160 W power supply. In this case, if you have a graphics card that needs to be able to provide more 160 w, you will need to upgrade the power supply as well. Ex: If the graphics card requires a power of 300 W, then move your computer's power supply to 300 w.

    Hope this information helps you.

    Thank you.
