Connect external monitor to notebook

Pavilion 17 Notebook PC
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am trying to connect an HP w17e LCD monitor to my HP Pavilion notebook and the monitor states "input not supported".  I got a VGA to HDMI connector, plugged the monitor into the connector then into my notebook, then turned on the monitor and got that popup.  I went into the display settings of the notebook and told it to look for other monitors and it still doesn't detect it.

 

Someone please help because this is driving me crazy.  I'm not super techy, so I don't always understand the language, but I can follow direction well.  Will the connector I'm using not work?  The notebook only has HDMI and USB ports.

Hi,

 

Firstly what is your laptop ? Please use the following instructions to find out the model/product of your machine:

Secondly what is the VGA to HDMI connector ? Please note: From VGA (analog) to HDMI (digital) you need a proper converter.

Regards.
