Not sure this is the right forum but here goes. I have a monitor with only a DVI-D(male) connection. I have a laptop and other AV equipment with a VGA out(female). I want to view the content on my monitor. I have bought a DVI/VGA adapter but when I plug it in nothing appears on my monitor. The adapter has a VGA male and a DVI female. Am I using the wrong adapter or is it a broken adapter? Please help!
