Hello, I recently encountered a problem with my vga port on laptop - and in a different question on ee we figured I should try using a usb to vga converter...
I got one and it's not installing right. here's what's happening:
when I install the driver CD - and then check in device manager to see - the software shows up under "display adaptors" - but not under "usb display device"...
if I then plug it in anyway - the computer makes a blue screen and says there's some kind of critical error - and restarts. then after that - under device manager it DOES show "usbvga" - but says that "no driver is installed for this device" - when I go to drivers > update driver - it says that "windows found that the most current driver IS currently installed" but on the general screen it still says that there's no driver. I tried the company website but didn't find the product - so I emailed them to ask if there's a newer driver or something... in the meantime - figured maybe you guys would know how to get it to work :)
thanks so so much!!
the product is ST Lab usb to vga adapter

It seems that the drivers are not compatible with your OS, better you can ask with the product vendor for the same...
