I'm trying to connect an external monitor to my laptop. But, the connections I have seem to prevent things from working, even though they should theoretically be possible. My monitor has a VGA connection. My laptop doesn't have any video outputs that I'm not already using. So, I have a USB to HDMI converter, and then an HDMI to VGA converter. In theory, I feel like this should work. However, when I actually connect everything together, nothing shows on the monitor. My computer recognizes the USB to HDMI converter, and it shows up as working properly in device manager. But nothing appears in the display settings or anything, so I am still unable to make the multiple converters thing work.
Anyone know any reasons this wouldn't work, and how to make it work?
I have Windows 10, by the way, with a Nekteck Usb 3.0 to 4K HDMI and a generic HDMI to VGA converter.
Thanks in advance,
