Not able to connect any Oculus vr to my laptop

My laptop specification is HP 15 Intel Core i5 8th Gen 15.6-inch FHD Laptop
HP 15-DA0077TX, 8GB RAM, 500GB SSD, Geforce MX 110. While I set up, 2 USB ports detects but HDMI does not detect. Now, I understood the problem that my laptop display is connected to inbuilt intel graphics and also I need a high-end graphics card to work. So if I buy an external graphics card and connect it to my laptop will it work. Can anyone please confirm it because after buying if I am not able to connect it will be a big problem for me.
Also if it is possible to connect externally, please suggest me graphics card (cost less than 130 dollars(10K INR))

@V_Mukesh_kumar  You would need a TB3 port which I do not believe your laptop has.  Plus your other specs look pretty low.  So no go imho.  In any case by the time you bought one and added a decent gpu to it you probably would have been better to just buy an new PC, preferably a desktop.

 

There is no way for you to use this laptop for PCVR with Oculus, or any other VR headset imho.  Please do at least a little google research before buying next time.  You can still get a Quest 2 and use it standalone for mobile VR without a PC.  You still will need access to a smartphone to set it up though.  Again, research requirements before buying anything is the best advice I can give you mate.

I would highly recommend not buying an external GPU. They're insanely pricy and your computer is not going to use much of the GPU's power. Unfortuntely, your laptop is drastically under spec so it's impossible. I have to echo the statement above, you should research these things before spending a bunch of money. Hopefully you can return the VR set.
