I would like to add a third screen to my installation. I currently use the two DisplayPort ports on the pre-installed GEFORCE graphics card.
But I noticed there were two obfuscated ports directly on the motherboard.
Does any of you know if these ports can be activated, and if so how?
NB. Currently, there is no signal on either of these DisplayPort ports.

Try the procedure linked to in the "Read First .. " pinned thread. I have no idea if the AMD processor BIOS makes a difference, please let us know either way.

Hi BiggAI, thank you for the prompt response.
I just checked the Video settings of the BIOS, and it is different from what the Read First procedure gives:
I have a RYZEN 5 processor installed on this machine.
Thanks for your help!

Sound like it is like most systems, where the internal graphics are disabled when a graphics card is installed. How many monitors are you looking for?

A USB 3.0 video adapter could be an option, providing what you're viewing is text based, no 3D. I have used the 'Professional' versions from Startech, and was happy with results, just be sure it can do the res. and frame rate you want.

Sure thing! I have not used an AMD processored ThinkCentre myself, so any help is appreciated.
