I work at an ISP, and a customer called about 20 minutes ago because she knows that I work on computers. She told me that she moved her PC and when she hooked the monitor back up to the PC she broke a pin on the cable. How in the world she did this I do not know, but she wanted to know if there was anything I could do to fix it without having to replace the monitor. I told her that there may be some possibilities, but to call Dell first and ask them for some suggestions. Anyone have any suggestions other than her buying a new monitor? I try my best to save customers money when they ask for my help so my options are either somehow fix the monitor cable or find her a cheap monitor. Hopefully I can figure out a way to fix the cable instead because I would be much more proud of myself I thought about possibly cutting the monitor cable and then cutting an older monitor cable and attaching those two end's together. I'm sure this is very possible to do, but probably not that easy. I still for the life of me can't figure out how she broke the durn monitor cable pin. Sheesh.
