Please provide your computer make and model, as well as your video card make and model (unless you are using the on-board video) This information will help us determine if you can support "dual" monitors. NOTE: "duel" is A contest with deadly weapons arranged between two people in order to settle a point of honor.

Can't find Advent computer on google. Is that really what it is? Is it a laptop or desktop? If it has more than one place to plug in a monitor then you can do dual monitors without problem. Otherwise you nees another video adapter. A laptop with a single extermal monitor port should be ablr to do dual monitors no problem.

The DT1404 also comes equipped with a VGA port for setup to an external monitor as well as
headphones and a microphone jack for enjoying your audio.

One VGA Monitor Connector Only. :( :(
