    VGA is an analog signal. HDMI is digital. You’ll need to either:

    1. Replace your video card with one that has an HDMI or DVI plug on it
    2. Purchase a VGA to HDMI converter box: http://bit.ly/p6ydrO

    I’d suggest going with the video card replacement if you’re using a desktop PC since the cost will be about the same. If you have a laptop, you’ll need the converter unless your computer has a DVI connection, if so you can just use a cheap DVI to HDMI adapter plug.
