How To Connect Two Monitors To One Computer [DisplayPort To HDMI]

August 14, 2019 posted by

Hey buddy, after a long time here is another
video. As you may know, I recently built a new computer. I required a dual monitor setup, one monitor
for recording my videos and one monitor for read my script. I did not have a budget to buy a separate
powerful graphics card so I bought a processor which has good graphics. I bought the Intel i3-7100 CPU with Intel
HD 630 Graphics, with the motherboard Asus H270 Pro. According to my graphics card, I can connect
upto 4 monitors but my motherboard has only three ports, HDMI, DisplayPort and a DVI port,
so I decided to buy a DisplayPort to HDMI converter cable. And here is the unboxing of it. So, as you can see on the package it came
from China. It is the cheapest cable I could find on Amazon,
it’s length is 10 feet or 3 meters and costed me around 1,600 rupees which is 24 dollars. Here is the product page from where I bought
the cable. As you can see all the sizes available here
are DisplayPort to HDMI cables, but the 35 feet one is a DVI to HDMI cable. Another strange thing is that, the 3 feet
cable costs around 540 rupees and the 6 feet one costs around 1000 rupees, but how come
10 feet one is only 700 rupees. I mean the 6 feet cable is more expensive
than the 10 feet one. If you observe more carefully, the same pattern
goes for 15 feet and 25 feet. I bought the 10 feet cable, because 3 or 6
feet one would be shorter for me, and 10 feet looked like a fair price. I ordered it on March 1st 2018 and it was
delivered to me on 3rd March. Okay now enough of talking, let’s unbox the
cable. Welcome to the first unboxing on this channel. Please tell me how can I improve my unboxing
in the comments below. Now, as I said that this is my first unboxing
and had no experience before, it was hard to cut the cover, so I am speeding the footage. Here is the cable, if you can see it the ports
of the cable are protected with a small cap, let me remove it and show you the HDMI port. Now, this is the DisplayPort, let me also
remove the cap. Here is the cable unboxed. Now, just for an idea on how long is the cable,
here I have hung it to a nail on the wall. As you can see, the cable is pretty long and
covers most of my wall, if I hang the cable from the top, it will surely cover the entire
wall. Now, let’s connect the DisplayPort to my PC. Here is a quick glimpse the DisplayPort connector,
the notch here should match the notch on your PC. Let me insert it. You need to insert it firmly so, it won’t
fall out. Now, let’s connect the HDMI side to my second
screen. The is just like a normal HDMI cable, so just
connect it as you connect your HDMI cable. After you have connected both the sides, let
us turn on the PC to see if it works. The second screen which I connected was automatically
setup as the default monitor so I changed it later. Also remember that this cable can only work
if use it to convert DisplayPort to HDMI. You cannot send any signal from the HDMI side,
it won’t work the reverse. The links for United States and India are
below so, you can directly purchase the cable, without searching or buying the wrong one. This way you need not buy a graphics card
with two or more HDMI sockets and can use your integrated graphics to connect two monitors. Of course, if your motherboard has two HDMI
sockets then you are lucky. So, that was it for this video. Please hit the like button if you liked this

    Thanks for this video – did I hear at the end that you can't send HDMI to displayport? I have an HDMI and a VGA port on my computer, however, I'm currently confused on how to get two monitors to work. Right now only one monitor works OR both work but its the same display on both monitors .. can't get the screen to expand. Any thoughts?

  43. ItsYoBoy ECHO says:

    to improve your unboxing you should maybe cut the packaging with the sharp side of the knife

  44. what could go wrong says:

    To improve your unboxing open a box not a envlope!

  45. MiaM says:

    Improve your boxing by not talking like an absolute retard and pretending to be a fucking computer, also no one wants to see your filthy arms, cover them up.

  51. Omkar Pawar says:
