That is a dificult task to find a new one, unless you have a broken one you want to take apart they are not a standard cable. Your best bet is to go to an electronics store and buy a new plug to solder onto what is left ofthe cable. To find the pinout, just use a digital multimeter and test the continuity of the pin to the color of wire on the other end. Then just find yourself a VGA extension cable.

I don't know where the cords need to be connected on the monitor and hardrive

As confusing as it might be, this isn't really that complicated as there are not many choices. Although there may be extra cables you normally will only have two cables to connect to the monitor -- one for the video signal and the other power.

The power cable is usually black (sometimes grey) -- one end connects to the wall outlet the other end at the back of the monitor -- match the shape and there is only one way the cable pushes in.

The video cable is usually black but will normally have blue connectors or while connectors on each end. Both ends are the same. Connect one end to the monitor. There is only one connection that matches the shape and it only fits on one way. On the main computer box, again match the cable connection you have to the one with the same shape and size. Again it only fits on one way.

Plug in a keyboard and mouse. These days most have a USB connector (small rectangular) but can be plugged into any USB port available (on the front or back of the computer). They only go in one way so don't try to force it. If it doesn't work, flip the connector over and try again. This should be enough to get you up and running. Turn on the monitor power (usually a button on the front or side edge). Turn on the computer (usually a button on the front).

I want to replace my laptop monitor

very easy

im in the proccess of doing one right now

if the screen is cracked it needs replacing, otherwie you might just need to re seat the cables

Simple google the name of your laptop (find the exact model on the back of the machine)
Buy you screen, i just paid £88.70 for a screen which arrived today, that was with VAT and delivery


Use a flat head scredriver or a knive to pry the front bezel off the laptop screen
This will reveal some screws, take these out and rest the screen on the keyboard, put some kitchen roll or other on the keyboard to rest the screen so it doesnt get damaged

There will be 2 cables, a power cable and a ribbon cable, detach both of these

Simply fit your new screen, attach the 2 cables, re fit the screws and the front bezel

I am charging the lady £45 to fit her screen
So if you can do it yourself youll make a nice saving
If your not comfortable then find a local PC repair service

Broken vga cable

If the cable is to a CRT monitor this will require and new cable harness to be rewired to the main board of the CRT which will cost a lot to replace if the cable can be obtained usually not successfully due to the fact that most CRT monitors are manufactured in Asia.

Monitor changed to yellow colour.... what is the problem...?

Monitors mix the 3 "primary" colours, in various proportions, to produce all other colours.

Mix equal parts of all 3 colours, and you get WHITE.
Mix equal parts of only 2 colours, and you get YELLOW.

So, either:
1. your computer's video-card is not sending the 3rd colour;
2. your video-cable between the computer and the monitor is broken, and is not transmitting the 3rd colour;
3. your video-cable is not TIGHTLY connected at each end;
4. the electronics inside the monitor that SHOULD be producing the 3rd colour have failed.

Try connecting the monitor to a different computer, with the same video-cable. If it works correctly, your video-card is the problem.

Try connecting the monitor with a different video-cable, to see if replacing the cable fixes the problem.

Try connecting the monitor to a different computer, with a different video-cable. If it still is incorrect, then the monitor needs repair/replacement.

Do not know what plug ins to attach to computer I have power to the screen and it is on screen saver. I do not know what screen cords and attachments to use? None of the usual printer cords fit the back of...

It's very likely what you call the flat plug is the video cable. (Picture #1) below. The corresponding cable looks like (Picture #2). The other cable (A/C) by elimination plugs into an electrical outlet. Are you seeing a cable other then this one coming out of the back of monitor? d82bfa4.jpg697a779.jpg

The monitor displays the screen then goes black. For example, I turn of the monitor off and then back on. I will see the screen for 1/2 second then it will go black.

Hi sglick - you will need to do a few simple trouble shooting steps to pinpoint the problem, as this can be cause by several different things.
Follow these steps and reply back with your findings: 1. Unplug the monitor power cable, wait about 30 seconds, reconnect the cable and then turn on the monitor. This resets the electronics on the monitor. 2. Make sure the monitor has power - the light on the monitor is on. If the light on the monitor is off, the monitor does not have power. Connect it to a different power outlet. 3. If the monitor has a detachable video cable, obtain a second monitor cable for testing purposes in case the cable is bad. 4. Disconnect all connected devices except the mouse, keyboard and monitor. This includes thumb drives and camera-type memory cards from card reader slots. With the devices disconnected, restart the computer. If the computer starts and the monitor now displays a picture, a device is preventing the computer from starting or sending a proper video signal to the monitor. Update the BIOS to resolve this issue.
If doing all of this doesn't change your issue of no video after seeing it pop on, try the monitor on a different computer/laptop, and if you have one, a different monitor on the system with the problem.
Let us know what you find following these steps and we can figure out what to do next. -Trev

Monitor comes on but wont show picture

You should make sure the cable is plugged into the video port on the back of the tower. Also, if you have more than one video card, ie an "onboard card" and another card that was added later, try alternating one to the other and see if the other one works. You can identify video ports by finding the blue pentagonal plug. It also will be the only plug that your monitor cable fits into (that is describing a VGA cable, a white cable is a DVI cable and is even easier to identify.) You might also want to make sure the video card wasnt jostled out of place. The final solution could be you have developed some bad memory modules, or the memory was jostled out of its slot during the move.

My wifes dog chewed the cable that is hard wired into the lcd .

If it's the screw on type on both ends (I'm assuming it's the video cable), you can unscrew both ends and get another VGA cable (under 10 dollars each).
If not, you might want to consider keeping the dog away from cables, it was lucky not to chew on charged wires.
