Hello, so I bought a new GTX 1050, it's an upgrade from an old GT 730, And my monitor doesn't use hdmi and the graphics card doesn't have a VGA slot. So I bought an i-rock HDMI to VGA Adapter and still didn't work. So I tried using a different Samsung SF355 LED monitor and still didnt work. My main monitor that it didn't work on Is a Compaq p1100. So what should I do? Is there any solution besides buying a new monitor?

Well I didn't buy it online, I bought it from a store nearby, but I found it online, here's the link.

Btw I forgot to say, It came with an extra white cable that could be plugged into the VGA adapter, but then after that I didn't know where to plug it in my PC, It looked something like a headphone jack so it only fit at the sound holes in my PC. Maybe that has to do something with it not working, Idk.

well from your description, u got VGA to HDMI adapter (not HDMI to VGA)
this means:
HDMI side should be connected to your monitor/TV
VGA side should be connected to your PC
that small hole should be connected with your soundcard
that way u can send your analog video + sound to HDMI capable device
doesnt work other way around
return it if u dont need it, and get real HDMI to VGA adapter

The description says it has a USB connector at one end, not a video connector. Is that a misprint?
