Dell monitor cable

My monitor input requires a male cable with 2 square areas of 9 pins each plus a flat pin to the side of the square areas of pins and the computer port requires a male input with all pins. Are there cables like this that are different on each end? This is a new Dell and Dell sent me a cable that fits into the monitor but not the computer port and Dell has no idea how to resolve it.

I think what you are describing is a DVI cable. Here is some info on DVI cables with photos:

Is the pig tail assembly on rear of the isteam control replaceable. Mine has a broken pin from the male connector inside and we cannot get it out. Thanks


If the pin is hollow (as all I've seen) try a wire with a hook on the end, a very small screw or possibly a small screwdriver to be able to pull the pin out of the socket.

I need to connect a VGA dell monitor my Toshiba Laptop


HDMI is digital
VGA (the 15 pin connector) is analog.
If your connector has the digital to analog interface it should work, but likely it does not have that chip and thus will not work.

Your description of the problem tells me it may never work as you have it connected. Possibly it might be that the monitor is required to be powered on before the laptop is booted, but that only works in some cases.

I have also seen some work if a 2-step connector is used.
VGA to DVI connector, followed by DVI to HDMI connector.
DVI was the step toward digital that came before the HDMI standard was implemented and was only partially digital. DVI and VGA do not carry control signals nor audio. HDMI carries both those as well as the video.

YMMV but I think it would be cheaper and more efficient to actually purchase a monitor with a digital input (HDMI or DVI).
Without the digital/analog converter interface a digital output device (your laptop with HDMI out) can never operate an analog device (your Dell monitor with VGA input).

How to connect laptop to Panasonic TV LCD TX-L42U2B


Laptop to TV hookup all depends on what the laptop has for output to a monitor and what the TV has for input. Your laptop should have a monitor output, a 15 pin female jack. You need a cable (male to male) with these 15 pin connectors at each end to hookup to a TV with a PC input jack. For the audio, use a 3.5mm stereo audio cable. Hookup from earphone out on the laptop to the TVs PC audio input jack. If the TV has no PC input jacks, there are other ways to connect. See this link:

Came with 2 cables for attachment - on longer type with 2 sets of pins to middle and one side and another smaller with 2 rows of pins - problem is monitor has 2 places to attach but the smaller has 3 rows...


The monitor comes with DVI and VGA (DB15HD 3-ROW HIGH DENSITY) connectors. If your PC only have VGA (DB-15HD) output for the monitor, then you need to use VGA cable (DB-15HD Male to Male) for connection. Hope I explained clearly.

My apple mini mac (no intel) hook up mag monitor 780


The Mac Mini has an adapter plug, DVI to VGA.
If you use the adapter and a VGA cable to the monitor there is not a noticeable difference.

Just be sure to know the resolution maximums of the MAG monitor before you think its the Mac.
