What you descibe sounds most like the adapter is doing the best it can for what it is. There are "sync" settings in (only) some VGA monitors that could compensate completly for a sloppy conversion. The digital to analog converters and VGA monitors can also generally run best at specific resolutions, or aspect ratios. As you discovered they can still ...

Could be the automatic overscan compensation. Unfortunately I don't have a Windows notebook anymore, so I can't tell you where exactly to find the setting. It's in the Intel Graphics Control Panel. Of course, this all applies only if you're actually able to set the correct resolution in Windows.

VGA is compatible with DVI. That was part of the design of DVI, after all. You should avoid using the VGA port if at all possible because it's analog and lossy. You'll likely notice ghosting and other artifacts. HDMI may be compatible with DVI, depending on your hardware. For example, AMD graphics cards ship with DVI-to-HDMI adapters. This only works ...

Yes, you can use any adapter cable between HDMI to DVI. Then you use a cable to connect the display to the adapter cable. To connect a DVI monitor to a VGA port on a laptop you will need a VGA-DVI converter. For more information about how to connect a DVI monitor to a VGA port on a laptop look at this question: How can I connect a DVI monitor to the VGA ...

As Dallas said, you can connect your monitor to DisplayPort with the help of a DP-HDMI adapter. Be sure to get a good-quality one (and supporting DP 1.2) since otherwise you wouldn't be able to get high resolution and long cable distance support. Some advantages are listed here : ...

HDMI is generally designed to work with standard TV resolution : 720×480, 720×576, 1280×720, 1920×1080. VGA (640×480) should also be supported everywhere. Even though there should not be any problem with using other resolutions, your VGA-HDMI (which is an active digital to analog converted, therefore it has his own chipset and firmware with hardcoded values) ...

You buy a display port to HDMI adapter, and then connect to the monitor using HDMI cable. I believe the best resolution VGA will give you is 720p, and with HDMI through display port you get full HD resolution (1080p).

There is no penalty to convert from DVI on your video card to HDMI on your monitor; The DVI ports on your graphics card simultaneously output a DVI-D, DVI-A, HDMI, and VGA signal over each DVI port. The DVI -> HDMI and DVI -> VGA "adapters" you find are really just selecting which signal to use. Note, this is true only for the DVI ports you find on ...

Many people seem to have an issue with linking laptops with Mini DisplayPort output to projectors with VGA input. Here's the real solution to my similar problem: I purchased a Dell XPS 8700 one year ago: Windows 7 Home Premium NVIDIA(R) GeForce(R) GTX 650 Ti 1.0GB GDDR5 card I paired it with a Dell 1610HD projector, using its stock 6 foot VGA to VGA ...
