Cables from VGA (at PC end) to Monitor with DP and HDMI will not work
Posted on 2015-02-05
My PC (HP MICROSERVER AMD-N36L) only has built in VGA (DB-9) output.
I want to use a Samsung S23A750 monitor.
It only has 2 input connectors: DP (Display Port) and HDMI
I have tried 2 cables:
1 x VGA (DB-9) to DP (Display Port)
1 x VGA (DB-9) to HDMI
Neither works (the monitor reports that there is no input)
Should one of these cable configurations work?
Or is the problem that VGA cannot be converted to DP or HDMI?
