I have an Android RCA TABLET that I need to connect to a VGA Monitor. I have purchased a cable with a mini HDMI on one end and a VGA on the other end to fit both the tablet and the monitor but it doesn't work. Does anyone have any advice?

    Can you link to the cable that you purchased? Because a simple cable can't go from HDMI to VGA. One is a digital connection, the other analog. There would have to be a converter device in between. – TurboFool May 13 '15 at 23:25
  • Thats the thing I just did not take into account. Thanks!!! Now what converter can I use that does not break the bank? Anyone HAVE AN IDEA WHERE I CAN BUY ONE....HDMI-VGA TO VGA CONVERTER TO VGA MONITOR? – Eduardo May 19 '15 at 15:53

Switching to an answer, now that we've narrowed in on your needs:

A straight cable can't handle this. What you'll need is a converter. Per your comment question, here's a well-reviewed one on Amazon for pretty cheap that will do the job. You'll want to pair that with a female-HDMI to male-mini or micro-HDMI (make sure you're sure which you have) adapter, which are usually less than a dollar, and a standard, run-of-the-mill VGA cable, and you SHOULD be good to go.
