Re: Optiplex 7070 Only Comes with DP Video Ports due to Radeon Video on Motherboard-any others takes cable or adpter

I was told by support this was the case, but when I go into Device Manager it List 2 Videos on System:

1. AMD Radeon R5-430

2. Intel UHD Graphics 630

One support person said I could use a Part# 5N1NY to install a HMDI Port on the  pen out on Motherboard and install the Port in location on the back of the box beside the DP ports on the Motherboard. Per list on the devise, you should be able to install VGA, DVI or HMDI Port this way.

Another support person says NO.  Customer Service Say NO.

Who is correct and why can't you add the Motherboard Port or a Slot Mounted Video Card?

I could sure use a HDMI Port In lieu of having to use a Special Cable!

After talking to a number in Tech Support, I was able to solve this issue. You can install a HDMI port on a motherboard pin out to the rear of the case beside the DP ports. The catalog number for the kit 07N1NY less than $40. You can also install a DVI port in the same place, but a different kit. The reason I want to do this Is I also purchased a new Dell Laptop that only had HDMI port on it. This way I can use same or same type cable on each to connect to a monitor that has HDMI port on it.
