Connecting Computer (VGA) to 65 inch display (HDMI) sound not required

For work, I have to supply a wall mounted 65 inch display, and connect it to a computer that only has VGA out (1920x1080).

Any help selecting a converter would be appreciated.

Thank you

    In line converters are all over the net. Some are cables, others are stubby adapters. Just keep in mind that most ar one way in the wrong direction, so look for an analog cable without a box.

    DSkip - Desktop, SEL 3355 computer

    To ask it anotherway, anyone know of a 65inch display that supports 1920x1080 with VGA input?

    You cannot add/swap a video card with HDMI?

    Some displays that size are really picky about resolution. They may have only a few native screen sizes that they will recognize and if your computer video software doesn't output the EXACT number of pixels, you would get no image.

    If have tried a few cheap solutions with not so good results.They tend to need to be unplugged and plugged back in to facilitate an HDMI handshake each time. I can't name any particular brand names because they are somewhere in a box in storage where they belong.

    This is where I was going. Adding a video card will give you HDMI and allow your computer to operate smoother since the CPU will be less taxed.

    Thanks for the comments, I can not add a video card. I will figure something out.

    Search "VGA to HDMI" on Amazon. Lots of choices under $20. Go with the most/best reviews.

    That's going to be your best bet then.

    I ended up buying a true 65 inch monitor with VGA input, thanks for your time guys.

    I was under the impression that the tv/monitor was already in place. Your purchase fixes everything.
