I'm not exactly sure how you expect to use a Cat 5 cable for VGA video (Takes 12 wires last time I looked) but here is how the cable connectors are wired


SVGA (35-37 KHz - 800x600) 15 pin sub D:

6
1 Red (Analog) 6 Red Return 11 (ID0) GND (Color) 11. . . 1
2 Green (Analog) 7 Green Return 12 (ID1) NC (Color) . . .
3 Blue (Analog) 8 Blue Return 13 Horzontal Sync . . .
4 Not Used 9 Not used 14 Vertical Sync . . .
5 Ground 10 Ground 15 Not Used . . .
15 10 5

Install external monitor from desktop to laptop


If your laptop does not have the 15 pin plug (VGA Port) then you will need to get some type of adapter that will make the monitor work. You probably have a DVI monitor.

You just need to make sure you get the correct type of adapter and make sure the ends that plug into the computer are correct such as male or female. For example think of the human male and female body parts when you look at adapters. The vga port on the computer is called a Female port, but the piece that plugs into it is called Male. It's the same with DVI ports.

I think you need a VGA Male to a DVI Female so below is a link to one and for $2.54 from Cable Wholesale.

Below is a picture of what it looks like.

Missing adapter or plug in connection to 15 balance mointor model 2015


The Balance CM2015 monitor uses a VGA connector,

http://www.ebay.com/ctg/Balance-CM2015-15-LCD-Monitor-Black-/52125929

(The above is for reference only. Not advertising)

A VGA connector is also referred to as a 15-pin D-Sub connector,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

This is information on a DVI cable, and DVI connector,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface

If this is the monitor cable you have, you need this type of adapter,

http://www.directron.com/dviadapter.html

Now LOOK closely.
This adapter has male pins that stick out, and go into a female VGA connector on the monitor. The DVI side of this adapter has socket holes, for a male DVI cable.

IF, your monitor has a male VGA connector on it, and the DVI cable you have has socket holes, you need this adapter,

http://www.directron.com/dvitovga.html

If your monitor cable is not a DVI cable, post back with the style it is.
If nothing else post how many pins are in the connector on the cable, and how they are arranged.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Connect pc to tv.


Your TV will need an HDMI or VGA (15 pin) connector on the back, plus you'll need a matching connector on your PC. Get the right cable (eg VGA Male:Male) and connect them up. Then just set you TV input to PC.

Monitor works but I have a single 8'' green line in the screen. Is there a solution for this problem?


Check the VGA cable (the one with the blue ends, with two screws at each end), one of the pins on the end of the cable might be bent out of shape, and is not connected. check all four ends, both male and female connections, at both ends of the cable, and the point where it connects to the PC.
if the VGA cable is hardwired to the monitor, you have half the job, and just need to check the end of the VGA cable, where it connects to the PC.

Connecting Laptop to LCD



the following connections available to connect ur computer to an TV:

S-Video output: If you have video card(external u will have this), you require an s-video cable and you connect s-video out of your computer to the s-video int of our TV.

TV-OUT: if you have video card(external u wil have this) you you require an coxial cable and you have to connect TV-out of your computer to TV-IN of our TV(it is place where cable connection goes from your cable operator)

DVI-D: if you have video card(external u will have this) you require an DVI-D cable you haveto connect DVI-D out of your computer(a white 15-pin port which looks like VGA port) ....

VGA: it is the port on your computer which is only used to connect to your computer but not to your TV or LCD(strictly)

I want to connect my monitor which has a vga connection via a cat5e cable to my security camera which has a bnc connection on it


Hi,

With the indulgence of IB4G2008...

Not possible without a converter adapter at the same time signal losses, interference and noisy video if CAT5E cable used.

What I would suggest is to use coaxial cable (RG59) instead of the CAT5E. One end would be terminated with ta BNC male to connect to the camera. The other end would have to be terminated either with an RCA male. Before connecting to the VGA (15pin) input of the monitor, it would have to be processed by a converter/adapter. Here are some examples:
1. Composite Video to VGA adapter;
2. some high end adapters are shown here;
3. several shown here would also work.

In case you would like a DIY, this might interest you.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

How do i hook my compter to my tv


im assuming here you have a new LCD TV with High Definition

if you have a new LCD TV most of them come with either a HDMI input or a 15pin VGA input , if you computers graphics card doesn't have a HDMI output on the graphics card you can use a male to male VGA cable , they are used on most PC LCD screens if you don't need it , 15pin VGA cables usually have blue plugs and have 15 pins :) or you could go to an electronic store and ask for a male to male VGA cable.


once you get the pc conencted to the tv ,

1. right click on the desktop
2. click properties
3. click on the settings tab
from here you can change the resolution and make the TV look decent.

i hope this helps you :)
