Display Monitor not adaptable with HDMI?

HP Recommended
HP Compaq LA2306x

I have an HP Envy and I just bought a HP Compaq LA2306x monitor today and an HDMI cord to be able to display my laptop on the Monitor but when I try to change the settings it only says DVI, or VGA as the sources for display....Will I need to buy an adapter?

It depends on what ports your Envy has. You didn't mention a model so I can't answer that question. From context, I can only assume it has an HDMI port.


As for your monitor, this is what it's capable of as far as input connectors go:


  • (1) DVI-D cable
  • (1) VGA cable
  • (1) USB cable

No mention of HDMI there so yes, you will need an adaptor.
