    Is there anyways to connect the Dell XPS 14 OR Dell XPS 15 with VGA monitor or projector

    So what your takes on this I really like to know this Is there a method to attach the XPS 14 or XPS 15 to a VGA monitor otherwise projector? since they only come with a HDMI port and Display Port. Is there an adaptor in the pack with the notebook or Dell sell an adaptor? There are website that put up for sale an adaptor HDMI TO VGA but a lot of say that doesn't operate

    Perhaps there are alternative with an present Port or USB adapter. If Dell put up for sale this adaptor i wish for to be acquainted with which one work by means of this notebook.

    One more query is why XPS 15 contain USB 3.0 ports in addition to XPS 14 have USB 2.0? Is there an error in the specifications?

    I am afraid VGA is analog.

    HDMI plus Display Port are together digital.

    so, you will require some sort of converter box.

    You be able to acquire an adapter for on 20 dollars that go from your mini display port to VGA. Dell do put up for sale that adapter, while you can as well get it from places like newegg.com or amazon.com. I have the same opinion that it is a terrible thought to go from HDMI toward VGA. Dell presented the display port to VGA adapter at the time I buy my XPS 15. I might advocate discovery a mini display port toward VGA adapter.

    I purchase the "Mini Display Port to VGA Adapter" by means of my Dell XPS 15. I, also, am incredibly upset about the resolution being maximum of 1024x768. I awfully much like by means of the laptop exhibit in conjunction with an outside monitor while I am at house. This just doesn't occupation for me.



    So, has anybody enthusiastic up an exterior screen to a Dell XPS 15 by means of a HDMI to DVI connector. If so, what resolution can you acquire out of it?

    I am able to switch among the different display option. I presume copy is the one I require, however expand doesn't work moreover.

    My PC does not seem to make out the adapter while I plug it in - it does not vary screen resolution. Did you have to physically search for fresh hardware or did it all work automatically?

    I purchase an HDMI to DVI-D adapter plus am by means of an HDMI-HDMI cable as of the laptop to approach the DVI port in the Dell E1911c on my desktop. No successes It become aware of it once moreover then has unsuccessful from the time . disgrace really as it theoretically should just work. The screen works more than VGA from a new PC.

    I'm starting to believe the HDMI output is a useless port. I'll almost certainly go the similar method other posters are going and pay no attention to it in favor of Mini-DP to VGA however even that seem to be fewer than perfect.

    I can confirm that my Dell XPS14z works with the Apple Mini Display / VGA connector. At around $30 from the apple shop, it was the cheapest and most compact solution.
