I am a newbie with the opportunity to get a large
monitor that works, but is being thrown out (should
be some kind of warning right?). It has three bayonet
connections on the back, and the associated cable has
a two row, 15 pin plug. Someone told me it is a Mac
adapter. Can this monitor be used with an IBM PS/2
with a XGA-2 video card? Any suggestions for how to
set this up will be appreciated.

Please e-mail directly to

Thanks in advance.

CGA is 9 pin 2 row, and VGA, or SVGA is 15 pin 3 row
And Im guessing somewhere out there is and adapter
that will convert the plug-in for the monitor.
Even if you had one made, it would probably cost less
than a monitor.

The monitor should have 3 rows of pins in a fifteen pin adapter. Nothing else will work. Just compare the adapter to the plug on the back of your computer. Hope this helps
