I believe the problem to be the VGA to Displayport.  VGA is analogue while Displayport is digital.

No adapter that I looked at for this is powered, so I assume the one you have is also not powered.  That is the problem.  Most likely you would have better luck with a USB power device and use the HDMI input on the monitor. 

Here is an example of the USB to HDMI adapter that will work:

I have found that adapter to give good performance and multiple monitor choices.

You most likely can find a different powered adapter if you do not like that one.
