Second monitor on an Inspiron One 2305

Just got my new Inspiron 2305 Athlon 4X, 8GB, 1TB, ATI Radeon 5470 1GB and want to connect a second monitor to it, but the VGA and HDMI ports are inputs not outputs. Can I connect a second monitor to this unti? If so, how?

You can't.  Not without an USB external monitor adapter...

I tried it but it didn't work.

Said that it only works on HP systems.

Anyone get any other device to work?  I have a 2305 and would like to have a second monitor.

I'll get the exact error message and post it here.
