Folks are reporting problems using video adapters all the time -- and I wish I could tell you that the adapters simply work, but very often they do not -- and when they do not, there is nothing we can do about it. I had to go through three different brands of the same video adapter until I found one that worked -- and the company that supplied that has since gone out of business.
Since both the laptop and monitor have HDMI jacks, that is the way I would go.
