Hi guys,
So I’m at university, and I brought my PS4 and bought a monitor which requires a D’SUB cable. I bought a cable which is HDMI to D’SUB and plugged them in, but the monitor just said ‘cable not connected’. I then bought an HDMI switch, plugged my original PS4 HDMI cable into that, but it didn’t even turn on / recognize any input. I’m quite new to tech, so if anyone could please help it would be greatly appreciated?

I do not believe the PS4 will support that. You would likely need a converter . A device that will adapt a vga connection to hdmi.

That could get kinda pricey and the fact being that monitors and even small TVs are dirt cheap you may likely want to simply buy a new screen.

monitors these days have HDMI, or Displayport/DVI worse case. Is this a second hand monitor?
