HELP - WINDOWS 10 Toshiba satellite c855d VGA to HDMI TV

So I got a brandless VGA to HDMI 1080 converter from eBay. I run a VGA cable from my Laptop (Toshiba Satellite C855D) into the VGA port on the converter and then there's an HDMI cable coming out of the opposite end of the converter.

When I turn on my TV to the HDMI input and project the screen, I just get a ‘No signal’ logo bouncing around the screen (it's the right input, I have my Chromecast in the other input).

I went into my display option and clicked ‘detect’ but it says it Didn't detect anything immediately without even trying. When I go into Control Panel > Display > Adjust Resolution it shows the number 2 next to the number 1 screen which leads me to believe it's picking up the second screen just not projecting to it.

Help would be GREATLY appreciated.

**I'm not sure how to update my VGA driver as I've seen other threads talk about it.

**AMD chip built in

**Windows 10 is so damn problematic.

This is not a W10 issue.

There are so few working VGA to HDMI systems that you need to find one that works. It's not a W10 issue here.

Uhh, more info please?

Could you explain or be more specific.

We think your problem is not...

windows 10 nor is it a driver issue. It's more likely the converter itself. It maybe difficult to find one that will work.

As others wrote.

It does not look like a W10 or driver issue. Try other adapters and especially ones that have companies that answer support questions.

I can't answer or support gear like this because out of 10 such devices only 1 worked. I didn't buy them. Folk bring them to my attention or to try.
