Old Dec 4th, 2010, 10:18 PM        Computer monitor cable question
So I have this old desktop that was in storage for a long time and I just took it out. Problem is, I no longer have the monitor/cable that went with it. I have a newer monitor and just realized it has a standard VGA cable, but the card on the back of this old computer has some other kind of input that I don't recognize. Can anybody tell me what kind of cable this thing needs so I can try to find a converter?

Thanks.

whoa. weird. do you know what kind of card it is, or if it's standard equipment for the PC, what model PC it is? looks like there's a ps2 mouse port and some coaxial connectors too.

looks sort of dvi-ish but with more pins :/ what does the writing on those say?

edit: actually, since dvi has 24 pins and 4 analog lines, that might be some sort of weirdo dvi connector

edit: or you could get a replacement card, too. there's some for $2 at the moment that look like they've got cables with them

Thanks guys, it is an ATI All-In-Wonder. And yeah, it's definitely old, but I did a lot of chiptunes music on that old desktop so it serves its purpose. Thanks for figuring out what kind o' cables I needed!

use the Super-Video plug (That's what the round one is I'm pretty sure). That's what I used to use before TVs started coming with VGA ports :O

at least i thought that was a super-video plug but its purple so maybe it is for the mouse :O

the purple and green are for the mouse and the keyboard. Also, that's not what he circled.

They both have the same pinout, which is the same as an S-Video cable. Easy mistake to make.

Well fucking Christopher Columbus wasn't looking for America, and look what he got. Are you saying that you wish Christopher Columbus never would've discovered America, and none of us would be here today?

thats fucked up.
