How do I connect a second monitor to my Dell PC? The second monitor is a Dell and works fine with ipad

My PC:

Processor: Intel (R) Core

Operating System: Windows 10 Home (10.0.18362) (TM) i3-6100U CPU@2.30 GHz

Connecting with HDMI to DVI D Cable. (Single Link). When I connect the new cable, my computer does not "DETECT" the second monitor. I have been on numerous You Tube sites but none have helped other than to say there is a "fix" to Windows.

 

With my Ipad, I am connecting to the second monitor with a VGA cable and a converter and it works with just plugging it in. Beautiful!

 

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Try a better quality cable, and go hdmi-hdmi to the monitor.

Dell should have been the first place you called.

 

Just saying,
