Hello! I am trying to connect a LG monitor to an HP laptop. I have a VGA cord and a VGA to HDMI adapter but the monitor screen is just black with a D-SUB out of range message. I have done nothing but plug everything in for fear of breaking something as I am not very experienced with setting up computers. Thank you in advance!

Welcome to TSF.

What's the full model number of the laptop and monitor? Always provide the full make and model number of the equipment you're having trouble with.

My System


D-SUB is your VGA jack and adapter. "out of range" means the external monitor is not getting a signal from the laptop, or the default resolution that the video is setup to is higher then VGA supports. Log into the laptop without monitor and change the resolution then try the adapter again.
If we knew the make and model# of the laptop and the Windows OS you are running, we can tell you what key to press to toggle between the laptop screen and the monitor.
