Frequently Asked Questions


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 cables

  • Video adapter

  • 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.

Before You Buy

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.

For more information about passive and active DisplayPort video signal converters, refer to the following FAQ:

this one works as expected. Cheaper ones don't

By: this one works - 01/08/2015
I had tried 3 different alternatives before this one and was relieved to find it works. I thought it was a simple matter to change from one kind of connecter to the other but there is a lot of signaling that has to be right for Windows 7 x64 to detect and talk to the monitor/TV at the other end. Don't waste your time or money on other devices.

Works like a Charm

By: JIm C - 09/03/2015
I needed to convert the (optimal) 1280x800 output from my Dell Latitude E4200 to HDMI for presentations. I initially purchased a cheaper SYBA IO Crest (SY-ADA31025) unit from Amazon, which was described as supporting this resolution. That adapter did an "OK" job at lower resolutions, but at 1280x800, the screen displayed a "No signal" message on each of the output devices I tried. I arranged for a (pain-free) return and refund with Amazon. I then chatted with "Keith" at StarTech who assured me that this device (StarTech VGA2HDU) would do the trick, so I went back to Amazon and ordered one. I just plugged it in, and it works like a charm! My grandson is watching children's programming (on the e4200 and our 50" Samsung LED TV) as I type this. Picture and sound are flawless; no jitter, streaks or freezes. Highly recommended! Thanks, StarTech. Thanks, Amazon. Thanks, Keith!

Works when others don't

By: Olias - 09/29/2015
I've got three of these to replace the more expensive Startech adapter, VGA2HD2. The higher priced ones did not work in our environment (kept getting signal out of range messages on our large screen TVs) but this little guy worked 100%. I must say that Startech technical support was excellent in working with me.

Worked flawless and automatically the first time!

By: ghumor1 - 11/11/2015
I bought this adapter and a 20' HDMI cable to use Skype for an Office conference. The only problem I had was the need to change the Skype setup to use the computer's internal microphone, rather than the phantom HDMI microphone.

Perfect Solution

By: Bobby - 12/07/2017
I was out of town on assignment with an older laptop with no display port and no HDMI. Just a VGA out and usb. This was perfect for allowing me to use a larger TV as a monitor for a presentation. The USB uses power to convert analog to digital and doubles as audio for the HDIM.
