Windows 7: Connecting a second monitor using a TRENDnet USB/VGA KVM Cable

Connecting a second monitor using a TRENDnet USB/VGA KVM Cable

I recently purchased an HP Omni 120; it doesn't have a VGA port but plenty of USB ports, and I found a TRENDnet USB/VGA KVM cable and I attempted to attach it to my computer an external monitor, but an error message popped up saying that it doesn't recognize the driver.

I learned that KVM is hooking up multiple computers with the same keyboard and mouse, but I wanted to know if I could use this cable for simply extending my display onto a second monitor without purchasing a KVM switch -- is there a driver or alternate method that would work? Or is there recommendations for a good, cheap USB/VGA cord?

There are other models that do USB to VGA if that is the only connection your monitor has.
The cable you purchased wont work for what you want.
