USB 3.0 Controller not working or disappears when devices are connected?
This is usually caused by a lack of power to the card.
Many of the cards using our USB 3.0 host controllers have a power connector that needs to be connected to the system power supply. If a power cable is not connected then the controller may show up in the Windows Device manager but disappear when any USB devices are connected to the controller.
Besides, for PCs, remember to connect the back USB 3.0 port not the front USB 3.0 port, because the front one will not provide power for the cable.
How to Mirror or Extend the screen on the Windows system?
“Windows key+P” to mirror or extend the desktop.
If you want to mirror your desktop, make sure the VGA monitor’s resolution fits for the laptop’s resolution. For example, if your laptop’s resolution is 1920*1080P, however, your VGA monitor’s best resolution is 1440*900, you have to make your laptop’s resolution down. You should find the same resolution both your laptop and VGA monitor can accept.
Does the USB 3.0 to VGA Cable support computers with Windows 11?

I used this to have a third monitor. It is easy to install and the driver worked perfectly.
I work in two locations - in IT - so my desk at one location gets picked for parts while I’m at the other location… especially stuff like docking stations and keyboards - so I use my laptop and travel mouse with three old monitors no one would take - this cable along with others comprise my “hidden in plain sight” solution - cable worked fine in Win10 with driver from card in package.
