Product ID: VGA2HDU
The VGA2HDU VGA to HDMI adapter lets you turn the VGA port on your Desktop or Laptop computer into an HDMI output port.
With the VGA2HDU, you can expand your VGA video output to accommodate the increasing number of displays and projectors that only support HDMI.
Not all VGA converters are created equal. This adapter ensures you're harnessing the highest video quality from your VGA output, with support for resolutions up to 1920x1080 (1080p).
For hassle-free setup the VGA to HDMI adapter allows for plug-and-play installation. Plus, with a built-in USB power cable the device is powered using the USB port on your computer. The VGA to HDMI adapter will work with any computer operating system, but when working with a Windows® computer the adapter supports native USB audio, allowing you to add your computer audio to the HDMI signal.
The VGA2HDU is backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

When you troubleshoot issues with a video adapter, there are some quick tests that you can complete to rule out potential problems. You can test to make sure that the following components are working correctly and are not the source of the issue:
Video source (such as a DVD player or computer)
Video destination (such as a monitor or projector)
To test your setup components, try the following:
Use the cable, video adapter, video source, and video destination in another setup to see if the problem is with the components or the setup.
Use a different cable, video adapter, video source, and video destination in your setup to see if the problem persists. Ideally, you should test a component that you know works in another setup.
When you test your cables, it is recommended that you do the following:
Test each cable individually.
Use short cables when you are testing.
When you test the video source and video destination, it is recommended that you do the following:
Remove the video adapter from your setup and test to make sure that the video source and video destination work together without the video adapter.
Test to make sure that the video source and video destination work together at the resolution that you want to use.
Note: In order for your setup to work properly, the video source, adapter, and destination all need to support the resolution that you are using.
This is an active video signal converter.
A passive video signal converter changes the type of connection that is being used but does not change the signal that passes through the converter. Because the video signal is not modified, passive converters tend to be smaller, simpler, and less expensive than active video signal converters. Examples of passive converters include DVI-I to VGA, HDMI to DVI, and DisplayPort to Mini-DisplayPort converters.
An active video signal converter modifies both the type of connection that is being used and the signal that passes through the converter. Because this type of conversion can be complex, active converters tend to be larger than passive video signal converters and sometimes require additional power. Examples of active converters include DVI-D to VGA, HDMI to DisplayPort, and VGA to HDMI converters.
