The 9-pin port on your PC tower is NOT a video port, it is a serial data port. All VGA connectors are 15-pin. Hooking up to the 9-pin port will not get you a picture. There should be a VGA port on the PC, or else a DVI an/or HDMI port. You can get DVI-to-VGA adapters that work, but only if the DVI port is an analog DVI, not if it is a digital DVI (DVI-D or DVI-DD).
The LG 32LD550 television has HDMI and VGA. Your iMac has a mini-DVI output port with support for DVI, VGA, S-video, and composite video connections via adapter. So all you need is either: 1) mini-DVI to VGA adapter. 2) mini-DVI to HDMI adapter.
HDMI is better quality, and so I'd recommend something like this: http://www.amazon.com/PTC-Mini-DVI-Adapter-6ft-Macintosh/dp/B001H0REVK (You may want a longer cable though).
It depends on what sort of monitor you mean, if it's an external monitor for your Mac it would need a mini dvi cable but if the monitor you want to add on is a vga or dvi monitor you will need a mini dvi to vga cable which can be found here : http://store.apple.com/uk/product/M9320G/A . Or a mini dvi to dvi cable found here : http://store.apple.com/uk/product/M9321G/B . If it is a Mac Pro which does not come with a built in screen and it's a primary monitor you want to connect it would probably have a cable with the monitor.
Hope this helps.
Newegg.com carries a mini-dvi to hdmi cable that Item#:N82E16812200375 it's listed as "StarTech MDVIHDMIMF Mini DVI to HDMI Video Cable Adapter for Macbooks and iMacs"This should hook directly into one of your HDMI connectors on your HDTV.
Your mac mini more than likely has a DVI plug on it for a monitor. You just need a DVI to VGA adapter. You can get them at any computer store for around $7. You can get them at best buy also, but for some reason their cables and adapters are way overpriced.
If you don't have a mac mini, then your connection will be different. If that is the case then I would need to know that model of your computer. Here is a link to a random picture of a DVI port:
So you have a mac with a mini-dvi slot, you have a mini-dvi to dvi adapter, and then Dvi to vga adapter which connects to the tv?
The mini-dvi to dvi adapter doesn't have the analog VGA signal your tv needs. If I understood right.
Apple's mini-DVI to DVI-D cable does not carry the analog signal coming from the mini-DVI port on the Apple computer. This means that instead of buying a single mini-DVI cable from Apple and using a cheap DVI-to-VGA adaptor when you need VGA output, you must purchase another mini-DVI cable from Apple.
Sounds like an inverter problem. If the power supply is internal replace the capacitors coming out of the voltage regulators. These are usually 1000mf and/or 470mf. If that doesn't do the trick look up the numbers on the 8-pin chips that drive the secondary transformers on the inverter to see if they are getting the right voltages. Good Luck!
