I turned the monitor off but didn't unplug it and attached the vga to hdmi cable turned the monitor back on and I got this on-screen message "Check Signal Cable" with a lot of multi-coloured dots dancing about on the screen I don't know if it's the cable or the monitor?

You have a cable problem as no such thing as a VGA to HDMI cable exists.

HDMI is a didital signal and is thus not compatable with an anolog VGA signal. HDMI to DVI cables however do exist as both are digital signals.

Hope this helps.

I have HDMI laptop and Dell 1706FPVT 17" VGA monitor. I have VGA to HDMI cable and I connected the cable between these two machines but it is not working. Solution, please.


First of, a little bit of explanation.
VGA = analogue
HDMI = digital

The answer seems to be in your question.
it reads "VGA to HDMI". These cables or adapters doesn't work the other way around. I am guessing your cable can only support vga output to HDMI input. And your setup is HDMI output from your computer to vga input to your monitor.
Solution:
Try and find HDMI to VGA cable or adapter. This is expensive.
If your computer has a vga output, use this with vga to vga. You won't get a better resolution by using HDMI to vga.
Or are you stuck with only HDMI output?
There are adapters for USB to VGA too. This could be less expensive. I have one for my friends Apple Air. I am not a "i" fan so I do not have much experience on Apple.

Hope this helps.

Connect aspire v5-552p to tv


It depends on the ports the computer and the TV have
If both have VGA (blue) use a VGA to VGA cable.
You can also use an S-Video-to-S-Video cable
If both have DVI, use a DVI-toDVI cable.
If both have HDMI use an HDMI-to-HDMI cable.

Other possibilities are combinations of the various modes above VGA-to-DVI, VGA-to-HDMI, VGA-to-S-Video, etc.
VGA-To-D

What kind of connector do I use to connect a dell laptop to a Hitachi 42'' plasma display? HDMI to DVI or HDMI to VGA?


If the TV has a VGA connector then use a VGA to VGA cable from your laptop as most laptops have a VGA output. Otherwise use one of the other combinations that work HDMI to DVI or HDMI to HDMI..

Can i connect a dvid cable from the monitor to my flat screen tv hdmi to watch videos from my computer? Thank you Martin


the Flat Screen TV if has, a HDMI input, also has VGA Input.

You must choose :HDMI or VGA, if HDMI The VGA board must Have HDMI Connector, and you connect a HDMI cable to the TV.

The HDMI is a digital signal input/output, VGA is Analog Signal. You must have Signal Converter if you Use the 2 signals
