How to change 15pin to 14pin VGA

If you have an old IBM PC with VGA and it’s only 1 pin where the normal is 15pin then don’t panic, it’s possible to change that by removing one pin and then it can connect to 15 pin monitor, you just need to remove it in one end and you have a 14pin to 15pin adapter cable 😉

Here is my modified 15 pin cable, just changed it in one end and it worked wih my 15 pin LCD monitor

Seems like one of the purposes for the one pin is that newer vga monitor can report it’s resolution back to the computer so you need to set that manually.
