Hi I have a PACKARD BELL ONETWO L5351 A6524 ALL IN ONE PC. I wanted to make it dual monitor compatible without having to ask for too much power from the motherboard. Is it possible to make this PC dual monitor compatible without or with graphic card fixed?

If yes please can you recommend me a low profile graphic card which can make this possible and where I can buy it.

The graphic chip is integrated on the motherboard & can't be changed or a low profile gx card can be fitted.

A low profile card isn't possible but a USB Graphic Adapter can be used.

Does it have a VGA or HDMI port?

@Woolwell It uses HDMI. It has one HDMI port and a VGA port.

You should be able to connect an external monitor to the vga port as you would with a laptop.

@Woolwell I do that but i feel like I am taking too much power from pc and I do want to fry the graphic card like I did on my old pc.

The external monitor has its own power supply. I doubt that it will be a problem. Ganes, etc are far more likely to place a load on a card. Do you know why the previous card failed?

An all-in-one is effectively a large laptop. Upgrading components is difficult if not impossible. About the only way to connect another monitor is via the VGA or HDMI port.
