VGA to HDMI

Can I hook my Toshiba L505-S6959 laptop up to a LCD tv (it has a free HDMI port) using a VGA port of my laptop to the DMI port on the TV?  I just got the laptop and it does not have an HDMI port, just VGA.

Re: VGA to HDMI

VGA = Analog

 

HDMI = Digital

 

It isn't easy, but if you are willing to spend enough money for the right adapter/converter it is possible, but it won't be anywhere as good as you think it's going to be.

 

If you really want to do it I suggest returning that laptop and getting one that has an HDMI output.

Re: VGA to HDMI

Yes you need an adaptor/converter. Here are some possibilities from Newegg. I can't recommend any specific one as I haven't used any of them, but this should give you an idea of what to look for. You'll need to do some research to determine which one(s) work best and which to purchase though.
