the above adapter was for my older machine that had a DVI input in it and no HDMI (used it for hooking up to or some monitor that didn't have DVI) - so i dont think it applies here, but throwing it on the list.
Unfortunately I am now in the position of having to use a PC laptop. There is no DVI input, only HDMI and VGA. I am willing to get another adapter, I am just dumbfounded on how to go about getting this display to work with my machine. Any help is very very veryyyy appreciated.
