Hi guys im gettin really *[email protected]:ed off, i decided to build a new pc and i found a nice motherboard with sata and hdmi, and so on, and i thought my monitor would fit and it dosent, is there a cable i can buy to make it fix it. The one coming from the monitor has 3 rows of pins and my motherboard should of had the blue slot where the pins go in, but it has a set of pins in 2 rows kinda like the monitor. What cable do i need or convertor, i bought an adapter to fix this but it has 3 pin holes double sided ( the blue one ).

What is the make of your motherboard?
Is your monitor vga or dvi?

Well your monitor has a vga connector.
What kind of graphics card have you installed.
Looking at the specs for your motherboard it doesn't appear to have onboard graphics.

Most graphics cards have either vga or dvi connections don't know about hdmi though.

Monitors do not connect to the motherboard. They connect to the rear of the case.

You need a PCIE graphics card as the mb doesn't have onboard graphics.

That's why i'm wondering if a graphics card is fitted?
