    So I purchased a 3rd monitor - it's the upgraded version of my two other monitors because those have been discontinued.

    It came with a displayport cable (both ends)and my computer does not have an input that matches it.

    My computer has hdmi and usb.

    We tried a displayport to hdmi to usb and it gives us the message of "no vga cable".. what are we doing wrong?

    Hi comaddi, and welcome to TSG.

    Why didn't you use DisplayPort to HDMI and plug into the HDMI port on the computer?

    Please provide the following details:

    Manufacturer's name and model number of the new monitor.

    Manufacturer's name and model number of the Motherboard and/or the computer

    Manufacturer's name and model number of any video controller board added to the motherboard. We need the information for the board itself, not the chipset that is used on the board.

    Manufacturer's name and model number of the USB to HDMI converter you are using.
