Hello everybody. I recently acquired the PM161Q portable monitor from Acer. Unfortunately I didn't check the connectivity options of the monitor and now I am stuck with a monitor that only has a USB-C port to connect to my laptop that only has VGA and HDMI. Can anybody provide any info on the subject? I also purchased a cable USB-C to HDMI and it doesn't work.
 
You need to power the monitor as well, a simple passive USB-C to HDMI can´t work. And it´s designed to work the other way around. From a USB-C source to an HDMI monitor.

You would need an active HDMI to USB-C converter with extra power connector.
But I couldn´t find such a device. Either you will need a new laptop with USB-C port or something similar like a phone to get it working out there.

Power comes from a micro USB port on the monitor.
I also can't find such a device.
Thanx
