Hi TYR9,

You'll have to open the PC again. Check near to the Video output socket on your motherboard for a black chip. It should have a name or model number on.

Let me know what this name or number is.

Ok. That is your NIC's chip. What kind of motherboard do you have? What is the model number of the board? Might be Gigabit?
Supports up to 4K resolution!

The VS192 2-Port 4K DisplayPort Splitter is perfect for anyone who needs to send one source of DisplayPort high definition video to two or four DisplayPort displays. The VS192 can split and also expand DisplayPort audio/video signal on two or four DisplayPort monitors.
