Hello. Im having trouble connecting my second monitor to my motherboard VIA HDMI. It has nothing to do with the monitors or cables. Please help, I'm really new and this is my first build.

if there a gpu plugged into the video card slot then you need to go into the bios under onboard devices. look at primany display setings. need to set it to both onboard and gpu or under it will be line says muilt monitor support. set it to enabled to have both ports on.

Generally on-board graphics don't support dual output. An older board such as yours almost certainly doesn't. Radeon HD 5450's or 6450's can be found pretty cheap and will support dual monitors.
