Missing pins on the DVI socket is an issue that would have to be corrected with new hardware, for the VGA you can just get an adapter to make it the opposite gender (m2f or f2m.)

2nd monitor does not work with DVI to VGA converter cable. My video card has VGA and DVi ouputs.


The problem could be in the adapter to the video card. There are different types of DVI connections. If the adapter does not have the proper set of pins then the card will not recognize that a monitor is connected at that port. Monitors themselves have no bearing on whether a single or dual monitor set up will work or not. Digital Visual Interface Follow this link, it may help you determine if the adapter you are using is correct for the graphics card.

Can i get an adapter for my emachine monitor to go into a dell desktop ...my lead i have now doesnt fit as unable to screw it in


YES.

I believe it is time now for the guessing game............

1) Is the monitor about so high, and so wide?

2) Does the monitor look like a small TV, or is it flat in appearance?

3) What does the monitor cable look like?

4) Is your hair Brown, and do you smoke cigarettes?



NO.............just wanted to see if you were following along! Geez!



An Analog monitor, such as a CRT type of monitor, uses a VGA cable,

http://www.wisegeek.org/what-is-a-crt-monitor.htm

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

Scroll down a little for a VGA Cable example.

Flat LCD screen monitors are Digital.
Some may have a VGA Cable attached, but the best cable option is a DVI cable,

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

(Click on any photo on those two Wikipedia pages, to enlarge)

Using these two examples, does one apply to the eMachines, and one apply to the monitor?

Let us say the monitor has a DVI cable.
The eMachines Desktop PC has a VGA port. (Connector)
For this you would simply use a DVI to VGA adapter,

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

Now notice...........this is a VGA MALE to DVI FEMALE.

The DVI cable on the flat LCD screen monitor, has a male connector.
The contact pins of it go into socket holes, in the DVI end, of the DVI to VGA adapter.

The VGA port on the eMachines, has socket holes.
The male VGA connector end on the DVI to VGA adapter, has contact pins.

Point?

Make sure you get the correct DVI to VGA adapter.
There is a male DVI to female VGA adapter, also.

This is just one example.
For instance I'm using an HP 2009M 20-inch widescreen monitor, AND an RCA 26-inch HDTV, as dual monitors.

Presently using the HP 2009M with a DVI cable, and the RCA L26HD31 HDTV with a VGA cable.

(I'm also using an ATI Radeon HD5450 graphics card. Pretty 'pud', but it does OK for what I want)

Primer;
A computer sends out a digital signal. To get the best graphics quality, you ideally use a monitor with a digital cable. (DVI, etc)

When you use an Analog monitor on a computer, the computer has to change the digital signal down to an Analog one.
Therefore the graphics quality is not as great.

Digital cable technology now, is DVI, HDMI, Display Port, and Mini-Display Port. And some others I'm sure I've forgotten.

http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Video-Connectors-Tutorial/157

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Also post what the monitor manufacturer name, and model number is. (Look on the back)

Are you using the VGA connector on the motherboard, (Back of computer), or do you have a graphics card installed?

If you have a graphics card installed, what is the manufacturer name, and model number?

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.

I would like to know what adapter (DVI to VGA Cable Adapter) I need to connect to a Macintosh G4. Thanks


Without knowing what Model Number of MAC G4 you're referring to, I can only give you generic information.

If your MAC G4 has a DVI port it is generally the female style.
The DVI connector on the adapter will need to be a male DVI style.

The VGA end of the adapter will be either male, or female. Most VGA connectors on a monitor cable have a male VGA end.

(The DVI end will have the pins sticking out on the adapter. The VGA end will have the socket holes)

Also stated as the monitor cable end will be a DVI male. The port {Connection} on the computer is a VGA female)

Example of a DVI male to VGA female adapter,

http://sewelldirect.com/dviaftovgam.asp

Barring that you need the other style of DVI to VGA adapter, (DVI female on the monitor cable, VGA male on the computer), this is an example,

[ Note* The newer VGA connectors are also known as an HD-15 connector.
More information on the Video Graphics Array connector,

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

More information on the DVI connector styles, and the Digital Visual Interface technology,

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

If you should find all of this confusing, simply state in a Comment as to what connector is on the end of the monitor cable, and what connector is at the computer.

State whether the connectors are Male (Pins sticking out), or Female (Socket holes)

If 'yes' to both, then you need a DVI-to-DVI cable.

Switch on computer and message on monitor says no signal input. think it might be the graphics card but can't test because not compatible with old computer mother board


This is more likely to be a problem with the connection between the graphics card & the monitor. The connection might be loose at one of the ends. Another possibility is that the cable connecting the graphics card & the monitor is damaged & needs to be replaced. Also, it might be because of a damaged VGA socket. Check the VGA socket for broken or bent pins.

one is power one is standard vga and one is a dvi cable, the only time you would need the dvi is for a higher quality of picture. if you do not need the higher quality (ex. you don't watch hd movies, you don't play games with awesome quality gfx, you don't do professional gfx.) you only need the standard vga (the one your used to). [note: you might need to upgrade your video card to use the dvi cable]
