VGA or HDMI connection from Dell 1526 laptop to HP2311X monitor?

By ccb711 ·
Inspiron 1526 has USB, VGA and HDMI connections. The cable that came with my HP2311X has 15 pins male connector with screw type connector. My Inspiron does not have the screw type connector. Is there a VGA cable available w/o the screw type connector. Or, I could use an HDMI cable (which I would need to purchase and would need advice on what to buy). What is the best option? The screw type connector is working, but it can easily fall out of the laptop.

This until has a VGA, SVideo and a HDMI one 29 pin Type B HDMI connector.

And the HP Specifications claim that the monitor has a VGA and HDMI Connectors;HHOJSID=glD3TQfRw0Y3vFqgJ02gvnhw1h2pVbFfylMXBgFZ0s152pmvw7nP!968493686

So either cable should work but you may not need to bother with the screws to screw the VGA Lead to the Connector. Or you could purchase another VGA Lead to plug the Dell tot he Monitor or a HDMI Lead.
