HDMI to VGA, DVI to VGA. – Synetech Nov 20 '12 at 8:27

Yes it's possible. You'll want some kind of adapter, yes - something like this for DVI to VGA, perhaps, or something like this for HDMI. They're not particularly expensive and will do the job just fine.

I tried to use HDMI to VGA but it does not work for me. If i connect DVI to VGA, then i need to update anything like drivers or require converter ?? – ravidev Nov 20 '12 at 8:31
