Using a generic HDMI TO VGA Cable Adapter

edited /boot/config.txt initially to uncomment the hdmi_safe=1 line
booted the pi – (low-res vga mode)
in terminal
sudo nano /boot/config.txt

commented out the hdmi_safe line
uncommented/edited to give the following settings:

disable_overscan=1

hdmi_force_hotplug=1

hdmi_drive=2
hdmi_group=2
hdmi_mode=4
hdmi_force_hotplug=1

ctrl + o to save
ctrl + x to exit
sudo reboot

For the correct hdmi_group and hdmi_mode see here: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=5851
