  1. Best answer
    How about a converter? Here's an example:

    The issue is that all your computer's outputs are digital signal format, and VGA is analog. So a conversion is necessary. That example unit includes a short cable that you connect between the converter and a computer USB2 port so the converter can get power to operate. It appears to be able to output various VGA resolutions.

    Bro,I am from India(amazon.in) .So suggest me a LED(full viewing angle)monitor 18.5" with(DisplayPort or HDMI or Dual-link DVI-D) supported.VGA adapters are usually not good,as per reviews..
  3. I agree, your best solution is a new monitor. The most common connection method is HDMI, but the others can work, too. HDMI has the advantage that it also usually carries the audio signals and that's handy IF your new monitor also has speakers to play the audio for you. A hint, though: IF you do that, you may have to tell Windows in your computer to use the audio output system on your graphics card, rather than a mobo built-in system.

    For a specific monitor recommendation, I have not bought one for several years, so I'll leave that question to others to advise you.
