XPS 8930, dual SE2417HG, setup?

Jump to solution

I need help connecting 2 monitors to my XPS 8930 tower. I would like to extend my screen but am having great difficulties connecting both monitors to the tower since there is only one HDMI card. Help please

We need a little more information about you XPS 8930. Do you have a discrete graphics card? The Dell SE2417HG has two HDMI ports and a VGA port. If you do not have a discrete graphics card you can connect one of the monitors to the Intel Integrated HD Graphics port (#4 in the Back Panel diagram of the Setup and Specifications manual, page 12. For the other monitor, you will need to connect it via a HDMI cable and an active DisplayPort to HDMI adapter to the DisplayPort port (#3).

You need a HDMI cable like the one you already have and an active DisplayPort to HDMI adapter like this.

Thanks again! Purchasing a active DP to HDMI adapter fixed the issue.
