Hi
I have been given 2x 15" unisys monitors, condition unknown.
I have a problem with testing them as they don't have a vga cable and the socket on the back has only 2 rows of pins not the usual 3.
They were made in 1995 so are not old ega or something.
Can i get a 2 to 3 row cable somewhere??.
Thanks

Unisys are a bit of a pain due to some models having detachable vga cables, some have 15 pin sockets, others 9 pin like yours. Reliability is not renowned either.
You should be able to get a cheap unscreened 9 pin to 15 pin cable for about $20 from your local computer store, or an adapter in which case you would then need a 15 pin to 15 pin vga cable.
They would probably get them from Pudneys.

A fully screened cable is not going to be less than about $40-$50 retail, and not worth buying just to test out 2 possibly dubious monitors.

There is a branch in Lower Hutt.

It may be cheaper to take the monitors to a comp. store who may have a cable and ask them to fire the monitors up for you.
