Solved!

VGA connection

HP Recommended
Hp e5800 G5345uk
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have an old HP desktop. It only has one connector to screen, a vga one which has stopped working. Is there a compatible usb external vga adapter or hdmi one, or how difficult us it to change the vga connector. Any help appreciated.

There are many around, both for VGA and HDMI, it is much cheaper to replace VGA port on your machine, it may require new motherboard. It is a 11/12 years old machine, adding an old PCI Express x16 graphics cards is another option but spending more money to your dying machine is your choice.
