I need advice on how to get the HP ProDisplay P19A LED Backlit Monitor to work with my laptop

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

Hello community.  I need help or advice on getting my HP ProDisplay P19A Led Backlit Monitor to work with my HP laptop(wireless connection.).  The VGA monitor cable  does not connect to my laptop.  I purchased the Monitor because it stated in the the description that the monitor  worked with laptops.  When I attempted to  install the HP Display Installer I get the error: No INF files found.  Community can you please advise me on what I need to do or should I return this monitor as the VGA monitor cable does not connect to my HP Laptop.  Thanks

It is an old monitor, very old, its specs

It ONLY supports VGA connection. Yes, it works with laptops but we are talking a 10 years old laptops here because the monitor only gives 1280 x 1024 (60 Hz) analog  max.

 

How old is your laptop ? What is it ? 

 

How much did you pay for the monitor ? Probably you have to buy some sorts of adapter to convert from digital to analog and the total cost of adapter + the cost of the useless monitor would be higher the cost of a new monitor today and you do not have to use a very low specs monitor.

 

Now, your choice.

 

Regards.
