But when I select input as HDMI in my tv it says No Signal. Laptop is showing no sign of anything. Please help!

It converts the digital HDMI signal to the analog VGA signal, but not the other way round and i have never seen a cable that does it like you need it. benjiboy180 October 13, 2012 5:54:57 PM The way in which the data is transferred in HDMI vs VGA is different enough that you would need an actual powered transfer box to be able to make that transition. I made the same mistake once too. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
