I bought this adapter to connect my monitor to PC and it’s not connecting. Says “no connection” I’ve checked and double checked all sockets/pins. Taken all other appliances out(usb)and switch off/on, still no connection?????

I want to get a 2 screen setup at my desk. My PC tower (Lenovo) only has one VGA port and on HDMI port in the back. The VGA port is being used by the main monitor already, can I use this cable to connect a second monitor?

Asked by: yeahitsiain
If you have an unused display port socket yes.

Hi - I want to connect a vga monitor to my Toshiba laptob with usb 2/3 connections (also have standard hdmi), would this adapter do the trick? I do not require audio as I will only be using the monitor for docs and photos. Hope this makes sense! Thanks

Asked by: Susan
Unfortunately not, this would require a display port on the laptop.
