    I am having problems hooking up a vga monitor to a BeagleBone Black. I have it working, but the capacitors next to the hdmi port get very hot, then the monitor loses a connection. If I let it cool off, I get an image again at least for a few minutes. Can you tell how you hacked the adapter to add an external power supply? I am thinking that the adapter is drawing too much current and so causing the overheating.
