      Answer

      I am using this with Windows 10 - 64bit. It installed without trouble. My third-party software recognizes it as a usable serial port, and I'm able to interface with remote equipment.

          Will this work for connecting a standard serial port for a monitor converting it to use as a USB connection for my monitor? This is why I'm buying it. Please tell me it will as I do not understand what USB-to-RS 232 (DB9) PDA/Serial Adapter means.   (2 Answers)

            No, 9 pin RS232 carries a serial communications protocol. If you have a 15 pin VGA female (no pins) connection on your monitor than a USB to VGA graphics adapter should work for you. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/insignia-usb-to-vga-adapter-black/4974300.p?skuId=4974300&cmp=RMX&extStoreId=1010&ref=212&loc=1&ksid=d29aa670-77a6-46f6-adda-9e1cf77b9a27&ksprof_id=3&ksaffcode=pg218886&ksdevice=m&lsft=ref:212,loc:2&gclid=CjwKEAjwoLfHBRD_jLW93remyAQSJABIygGpiAgvNzsE0G0jY5IyhhDr9TUeCen0X3F0XYBj50lAlRoCp0zw_wcB

            No. This cable is for serial data connections only. It does not have enough pins for video connections.
