I have a laptop (dell inspiron 7537) with an hdmi output and I would like to connect it to a monitor (Samsung PPM42S3Q ) which has only VGA and DVI input. I bought a dvi to hdmi adapter (hdmi female dvi male) but when I connec laptop to monitor I always get “no signal” that means cable is connected but no signal is sent or recognised by monitor.
First, I suppose cable wasn’t working, so I connect my laptop to another monitor (more modern than the samsung) with the same configuration and everything works like a charm. After I figure out that cable was working I connect my PC Desktop to the Samsung monitor with the same configuration and everything is working. I supposed was a graphic card issue, my laptop has and intel integrated graphic card and a Nvidia Geforce Gt 750M , I tried to enable one and disable the other and viceversa but in the end I got always the same result “no signal”.
Could anyone please suggest another configuration or tell me if is possible to get this configuration working?
