Hoot Displayport to VGA Monitor

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Like many people, I work from home. My work PC is at my desk next to my home PC and I have to switch my monitors between the two PCs. It's annoying. I do not want to invest in an expensive switcher or KVM switch. My monitors have both a DVI and VGA port on the back. My work PC is outputting Displayport to DVI. My home PC is HDMI to DVI and DVI to DVI. I would like to utilize the VGA port for my work PC so I can just change inputs. I bought adapters to do this, but that's when I discovered the difference between DVI-I, DVI-D, and DVI-A. The adapters did not work. I have looked all over the internet and all I can find is a way to hook a VGA output to a DVI input but not the other way around. Does anyone have a solution? If pictures of the cables and ports would help, I can provide those once I'm off the clock.

 

Thanks!
