I have an VGA to HDMI cord from my viewsonic monitor to my XPS15z laptop and its not detecting the monitor. It won't allow me to view anything on my viewsonic. Has anyone seen this problem?

I'm a big dell fan but am quite disapointed with a new xps 15z i recently bought. there is no way to project on a fairly new NEC projector from my lap top using the mini port and a converter to vga. Its unbelievable how a new lap top can be so complicated! I successfuly conect to a monitor but am unable ti project.
These kunf of cables usualy convert from VGA to HDMI and not vice versa which is what you need, you need HDMI to VGA.
There are no cables that convert HDMI to VGA. You need a converter box, hence $$
my laptop doesn't have a vga connection, so i don't care if its HDMI quality...i just want to hook an extermal monitor to my laptop.
Then you don't have any choice, do you?
Either buy a monitor with HDMI input or buy a HDMI to VGA converter box.
