Hi, I am new to this forum and hope there are some techies out there who might be able to help me more than the ACER online team, who have been useless.
I own an Acer Aspire Z1 621, SNID 50100013969. I wanted to attach a second monitor and bought an HDMI to VGA cable to attached a separate Acer monitor, which is VGA only. The Aspire does not have an VGA port.
I have since found out that this does not work because the desktop computer's HDMI port is input only and not output, which is really helpful Acer, thanks!! (incidentally does anyone know the reason for this?) Acer have basically suggested that i use the Aspire as the second monitor to a laptop, but what is the use of that when the aspire is the computer i need to access.
My question is, is there any other way I can attach a second monitor? I am looking into buying a USB to AVG cable, would this work? Acer say 'no', but can't tell me why...
If anyone has any bright ideas i'd be grateful. I am not too technical with computers (but I'm learning as I go along) so if you could explain it in dummy language I'd really appreciate it...
Many thanks in advance
