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).

HDMI cable connects to monitor but not to tower


HDMI cable has a specific design for specific purposes, if your tower is supposed to be used through a different port, use it, the other device is the one that will have to adapt to it. An "HDMI to other port" wire shouldn't exist, since it wouldn't bring the advantages of an HDMI wire.

Can i connect my xbox 360 using Dvi D to Hdmi in the dvi slot and also my tower to the vga slot on my eMachines E19T6W


I am not an xbox person, but as far as hooking it up, it should work as long as the other device is NOT powered up. That being said you will still have to provide audio from the xbox another way as dvi only carries a video signal, unlike the hdmi which carries both audio and video.

How do I hook up the moniter to the CPU?


First figure out what output video the computer has. These days it can be VGA, DVI, or HDMI. Then determine what video inputs are on the monitor (same list). Then plug in the desired cable. Many monitors only come with the VGA cable. If you do not have a VGA port on the computer you would need a DVI to VGA adapter to use that cable. Otherwise buy the DVI or HDMI cable. (DVI to HDMI cables exist if you have HDMI but no DVI on the monitor and only DVI on the computer. However, you need to check your video specs closely. A Single link DVI is different than Dual-link DVI and the cables are not interchangeable.)

Once the data and power cords are plugged in, power up the monitor and then the computer. The computer should find the new hardware and install (or ask for a disc to install) the drivers.

I hope this helps.

Yes, they both will act independently if you choose to use it that way or they will show the same picture, one is a DVI output and the other is VGA. Use the ATI’s CATALYST software suite provides the ultimate software required to enjoy the full acceleration of your ATI Graphics Accelerator card.

What dvi cable do i need?


Any bog standard dvi cable should work. As should a dvi to vga converter. Dvi is by far the better interface, and I would highly recommend using it, without any converters. I don't believe you can up convert vga to dvi, but you can certainly downgrade a dvi signal to vga, but i can't see why you would want to...

VGA CORD that is blue in colour which connects your moniter with the tower.

It sounds like you have a DVI cable on your monitor. (See attached picture) If you go into radioshack ask them for a DVI to VGA connector. http://www.amazon.co.uk/2m-DVI-TO-VGA-CABLE/dp/B000K5O1M8 Let me know if the picture looks like the cable you have on your monitor. M
