Adding a second monitor

We have a Optiplex 9020 Ultra small, we are needing to add a second monitor for our parts counter. Thanks in advance


we have one monitor in the vga… the monitors have vga hdmi and dvi

Hello James,

Thanks for posting this question! Based off my research, that computer should have either Windows 8 Pro or Windows 7 Professional installed and appears to have 2 DisplayPort outputs based on the picture you posted. Assuming this is all correct, I believe the best option would be to use a DisplayPort to HDMI adapter (we make one that is available here: You would connect this adapter to the DisplayPort on the back of the computer, then connect the monitor using a standard HDMI cable.

Hope this info helps, but if I have any details incorrect or if there’s further questions, please let me know and I’ll be happy to assist further!
