hdmi or scart as vga?

  headswrecked 16:38 14 Oct 2008

i have built new house and have 2x scarts leads, 2x hdmi leads and 1x audio cable installed in the wall. can i adapt any of these cables to use my lcd tv as a monitor? or is it possible to cut and reconnect a vga lead as a last resort? it is not possible now to install the vga lead that it needed because of the size of the connections, (dam it!).
any help would be appreciated.
many thanks.
