  1. Iv'e got a gateway 700-069cs monitor with a broke pin.I bought a belkin db15 monitor cable ext so i can splice the new end on. The belkin has 14 wires and the old cable has 9 wires. It does look like the old gatewaycable has 3 larger size wires with smaller wires inside. I'm about to pull my hair out trying to figure out how to splice these together.Couldn't find anything clear enough to help out on the net anywhere. Thanks Derrick

    Your monitor will work perfectly fine with one pin broken. At least, that's my experience with monitors. Does it work with the broken pin or not?

    And the adapter you bought - are you sure it's male VGA to female VGA? Most adapters like that change the number of pins.

    doesn't work without that pin. The adapter is male to female. Ijust want to use the male end of the extension to fix the old cable. I've already cut the ens off that I need, just need to know what wires to splice together since they don't match up the same. Thanks Derrick
