Top, upper VGA monitor video port does not work (HDMI, DisplayPort)

I would like to install a 2nd monitor on my PC (Lenovo H50-50)

I plugged a 2nd monitor with the upper VGA port of my computer but the computer don't recognize this 2nd monitor.

How can I do ?

Re: H50-50 - Adding external monitor to the computer

Sounds like you have a graphics card installed, if so, the built-in ports are disabled.   I suggest you use the other port on the graphics card.

Re: H50-50 - Adding external monitor to the computer

You appear to have an "Add-in Video Card in Expansion Slot".   There will be another port on the card next to the cable going to your first montor that's working, connect the 2nd monitor to that port (it maybe a different type than the first):

 

How do I connect a monitor to a computer?
