My year old Toshiba Satellite L755 has HDMI and VGA outputs. Since your monitor has VGA inputs, get a VGA cable and just run it from the laptop to the monitor.
I have a new Toshiba Satellite laptop with Win 8. I would like to connect an old monitor to it if possible. I need an adaptor but I am not sure what or even if they are compatible. The Monitor is a 19" widescreen High Def. The sticker on the front says widescreen 1440 x 900 resolution
DVI with HDCP input
VGA Analog Input
Enriched color perfection
It is a Gateway and is about 8??? years old.
Can anyone help.? Keep it simple.
