Rescued CRT monitor, hacked vga cord. Fixed but wires left
« on: February 24, 2020, 10:15:34 am »
I recently brought home a 19" gateway vx930 flatscreen monitor with an LG tube.
Whoever set it to the curb hacked the vga cord off.

I bought a solderless vga port and have it wired up and the picture on this thing is amazing, must have low hours on it. Its a decent monitor capable of 1600x1200 at 95hz I cant believe someone hacked it and tossed it.

Anyway... I have small black,orange,white, and purple wires leftover that are for monitors ID data so that the operating system knows what res and refresh rates the monitor is capable of. Right now windows detects it just as generic vga monitor and i cant change the resolution.

Anyone ever wired a gateway crt or similar vga (this ones from 2003) and maybe remember or could help me figure this out.

Heres some more info/pics on my reddit thread.

Any help is greatly appreciated!!!
