You write the projector is VGA but then your post title is VGA to HDMI. Confusing.
Maybe you just want VGA from a non-VGA laptop? If so, why not a VGA USB card? Example follows and remember there are a dozen like this.
We have a projector installed on the ceiling and it was connected to 150 ft vga externsion cable [from projector 50 ft + 100 ft]. My laptop [Spectre x360] doesn't have vga so I bought this [J5create VGA to HMDI] product. When I used this product, My laptop doesn't recognize it [display settings] and keeps on blocking out.
Should I replace J5create product or maybe there's problem on the extension cable? Other laptop [w/vga included] works fine.
Please need help and product suggestion.
