I have a DVI video card in my Compaq Elite 8300 and I want to connect a second monitor using the HDMI port, but the second monitor is not being detected. Is there any BIOS settings that I am missing?

You can't use a graphics card and internal graphics at the same time. If your DVI card doesn't support dual monitors, then you have two options:
1) Stop using the DVI card, and you can use both the VGA & DisplayPort internal ports.
2) Replace the DVI card with a card that supports multiple monitors.
