I am trying to use an older monitor (VGA only) with a new computer. The computer only has DVI-D and HDMI ports, so I bought a HDMI-VGA adapter.
However while it worked for the first hour or so, after that the monitor would just go blank and say 'no signal'. If I pull apart the VGA cable and the adapter and put them back together, it works again, but at this point it just lasts a minute or so, then the signal is gone again.
I have even taken the adapter back and gotten another one, but it has the same behavior.
I guess the obvious thing is the VGA cable, which I can replace of course. Just wondering what might be going on and is this likely the cable problem?
Any advice would be welcome!
