You gave a confusing situation. The post doesn't say what ports the monitor has.

But you do conclude that your only option is VGA to HDMI,-and you got appropriate guidance-

but later on in the thread you said the monitor only has a Mini-DisplayPort connector and the computer has full DisplayPort??

If so, buy a full to mini DP adapter??

Or try this:

Thus, there are ways to go from VGA or full DisplayPort to MIni-DisplayPort.

Thanks for your post. The monitor came with a Mini DisplayPort cable but the monitor also has the full size port.

I ordered a VGA to HDMI cable and a DisplayPort to HDMI cable. Hopefully one of these will work.
