Hi everyone,

I have PCs with both VGA and DVI-D female ports integrated graphics on the motherboard (HP Pro 3015 MT's).

I received monitors that only have VGA inputs, and I was wondering if I can convert the DVI-D to DVI-I and then convert the DVI-I to VGA?

DVI-D to VGA is a very expensive option, €200+!

The only other alternative is to purchase a graphics card that can handle two screens (I ALWAYS disable onboard graphics in a dual-screen setup).

Anyone else have another option?

Thanks,

The datalore.

I know there is a part that you can get to fit a DVI port into a VGA port. I have use them in my work.. It's called a Monitor dongle and it's not that expensive to get. Here's the photo of what it should look like below.. You connect it to your video card and connect either 1 or 2 monitors and it will work.. There's a lot of dongles around for a good price...Maybe you should look into this..

There is actually an adapter that goes DVI to VGA that only cost about 5 bucks. I have one on my pc right now, for my second monitor.

HERE is one on Amazon for under 2 bucks (not including shipping) and HERE are some listed on Ebay.

Hope that helps.
