Windows 10: Can I use my motherboard HDMI port as well as my graphics card HDMI?

    Can I use my motherboard HDMI port as well as my graphics card HDMI?


    I want to use 2 displays using HDMI, but the only problem is that when I plug in my HDMI to my TV through the motherboard, it does not work. I know some do not support it which is why I am coming here. My mother board and graphics card are in my account so look there for the details on my computer. Thank you

    I've seen a number of computers where the addition of an Add-in Video card automatically disabled the onboard adapter. The only thing that worked to restore the onboard adapter was to remove that Add-in card. You may want to consider getting a different Add-in card that has 2 HDMI ports. Or if your motherboard has 2 PCIe X16 slots get a 2nd matching card.

    Your graphics card has two HDMI ports, you just need a DVI to HDMI adapter. Most actually yend to come with one.

    The specs are at GeForce GTX 970 | Specifications | GeForce
    Dual Link DVI-I, HDMI 2.0, 3x DisplayPort 1.2

    The image at GeForce GTX 970 | Product Images | GeForce shows 1 HDMI port as listed in the specs.Attachment 54707
    But as mentioned, you could use an adapter from the DVI port that will create an HDMI port.
