Okay, I’m feeling quite clueless here. I just received my adapter, and I would like to hook up my VGA monitor to the USB port on my HP Envy. I have two questions:
It suggests that you should use a 3.0 USB port for better performance. I Googled how to determine if I have a 3.0 port, and apparently, at least one of my 6 USB ports in the back and/or the two ports on the side is 3.0 - or maybe all of them. I can’t make sense of the info in the Device Manager settings. There are 12 items listed in the USB Controller settings! How can I tell if they’re all 3.0, or just one, and if so, which one?
I am feeling especially clueless about how to get the VGA adapter into the Plugable controller. According to the pic on Amazon, it looks like you just push it in and tighten the screws. But it doesn’t appear to be that the holes and pins on the adapter and controller will line up without forcing them - or at least that’s what it feels like I’m doing when I try to push it in - and I’m afraid of breaking the pins. Is there a better pic with instructions on how to do this? Or perhaps a video (best of all)?
