Windows 7: Dual monitor setup hdmi to vga on 2nd monitor shows nothing

22 May 2015   #21

Windows 7 Pro x64 Windows 10 Pro x64

Once again, I wish people would post actual manufacturer`s links of their parts when asking for help.

VGA only on those monitors ? How old are they ?

Ok, so as information for someone else in my situation, I purchased a basic vga cable and this hdmi to vga converter: Cable MattersĀ® Gold-Plated Active HDMI to VGA Adapter (Male to Female) with 3 Ft Micro USB Cable - Black: Computers & Accessories and it solved the problem. Didn't even have to use the usb to power it. Worked like a champ. A hdmi to vga cable did not work originally, but this converter suggested to me did.

Thanks for your input.
