Default Do vga to hdmi adapters work?

Display 2014 Samsung smart tv model un40h h5203af (walmart)
Inputs: 2 hdmi, combo component and coax.

Output, many laptops but those without hdmi and using vga/s-video are a concern, mainly my daughters.

We were victims of hurricane/floods and lost our monoprice converters, and most stuff in our home including latter.
I understand s video to combo component would be easiest option but is it the best option since I still have many long high quality hdmi cables.
She uses a hp pav d6 8700, broken screen..
Anything to get her back online, as well as consideration to quality. Ty

Some do and some don't. It will depend on how picky the TV is to the video input. There can be some differences between computer video and the TV standards. The best ones are those that just do the conversion without altering the signal.

I have one that has various output selections (480p, 720p, 1080i, etc) and it does not work on all TVs.
