Is the Inspiron One 2305 incapable of supporting dual monitors?

Jump to solution

I did some poking around the internet and a few posts indicated that the Inspiron One 2305 All-in-One Touch Screen Computer isn't capable of supporting dual monitors. I believe someone said something about the VGA connector being an input instead of an output. Is this true? Is it something that could be rectified with an adapter?

Hi potatosackrace,

There is no video-out port on the 2305. HDMI, composite and VGA are all video-in.

Do you know whether an adapter would allow me to turn the video-in into a video-out?

I know this unit is available in a 1080 version.  Since my Inspiron one 2305 has a TV tuner and blu-ray, I'd rather have the 1080. Do you have this available and, if so, would you please contact me?  maconsbestdj@hotmail.com

Thanks.

this is what I found. its a video about 24 minutes long but the part I was interested is around the 15 minute mark. You need a USB Graphics Adapter with whichever connection you want to use. For example, I would need one of these adapters with an HDMI connection because the tv i want to use only has hdmi and the red,white, and yellow connections. my tv doesnt have dvi or vga. So here you go. I'm also posting a link for the adapter if you want to see what it looks like, this one is USB to hdmi.
