I recently bought two Dell g2410 monitors which I want to use with my Lenovo Yoga 2 laptop. I purchased the Plugable UD-3900 based on a recommendation from other users which had successfully gotten the same set up to work with an earlier version of the Yoga laptop.
The first extra monitor works fine. I’m using the DVI to VGA adapter that came with the USB hub + VGA cable to connect to that monitor. I’m still running my laptop screen as well (extended display).
The second Dell monitor still isn’t working. I’ve tried the following arrangements:
- USB 3.0 to VGA adapter + VGA cable
- HDMI to VGA adapter cable plugged directly into the monitor. Error message reads “No VGA Cable Plugged In”
Can anyone offer any suggestions on how to troubleshoot this?
My next step would be to plug a VGA splitter into the DVI to VGA adapter that’s already working, but I wanted to check here before buying a third adapter given that similar problems have been reported…
