SOURCE: The VGA cable is frayed behind the pin plug

Spend $10 and replace the VGA cable, before it short-circuits, and causes a fire, and burns down your entire home.

Hi i am looking for vga cable 9 Pin Female to 15 Pin Female thanks

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).

What cord do I need to connect my 1810 gateway monitor to my tower

Your either going to need VGA or DVI. You need to check the back of your computer and monitor to see which type of connection you have. Then plug in the appropriate cable.

Basic "background" colors are wrong:

Kathy...have you tried connecting another monitor to the same video card and computer? It could be...

1. Video card defective
2. VGA cable from computer to monitor defective...look for bent pins in plug.

The VGA cable from the computer video output carries three distinct, green and blue. Likewise one of these colors may not arrive at the monitor correctly or at all. The results being that all colors are incorrect.

Hi, the red color desappered from the monitor, I can not adjust it, is this problem with a displey or with computer

If only one color is not working - it is usually just the connector of the screen or the monitor cable itself that is faulty. Remove the Monitor Data cable that plugs into your PC and check that NO pins are bent or pushed into the socket - then re-insert the VGA connector into the PC and make sure that the part of the cable that plugs into the monitor itself is also secured properly. That should solve the problem. If not - it could be the cable itself - bend the cable at the connector to check for a lose wire inside. If the color suddenly comes back - replace the data cable to the monitor.

Hope this helps
Good Luck

My monitor is not displaying red color some...

If only ONE colour is missing - it is usually just the VGA connector that is not plugged in properly or you bent a pin while connecting the monitor to the PC.Unplug the VGA cable and look at the pins and make sure nothing is bent .. then re-insert the VGA connector properly. That should fix it.

Good Luck

My 19 inch monitor no longer comes on....the blue light on the on off button blinks..and that is

Please check if all the cables are properly plugged in. If yes, then remove the vga cable with the blue plug from the back of the monitor, make sure that you do not remove the power cable. if you see monitor self test or any colors on the screen it means that the monitor is fine. but, if there is no display still you need to change your monitor.
then the problem is in the tower, please check the power supply if it is working or not. If yes, the problem is either with the mother board or the memory.

Thanks and Regards

The most likely problem is that a pin on th cable is either bent and missing a color or the cable can be bad. If you use VGA a pin can bend and cause a color disappear. DVI cables can sometimes be the same issue.

Most likely if the cable is not in correctly it could also be the cause of the problem. Check the pins and make sure they are straight up correctly and if they are let me know what displays on the monitor and maybe i can help you out more. I specialize on monitor issues. :)

How to hook up flat screen monitor??

That's all you need. Just a standard power cord plus the VGA connector cable. Plug the new monitor into the same spot as the old one.
