VGA Jack

I beleve this computer may have specail purpose on before and may be a TV receiver or CCTV montioring PC / recording too.

I suggest you to try to start the Pc, if there is a beep sound that you clearly can hear about that. The computer still work and may be someone unplug the card or it can DVI plug which you have no idea for that.

1. Try to locate the DVI plug, if yes, this computer use DVI and it is not use VGA. And you may need to LCD monitor with DVI.

2. I suggest you to take the photo at the bottom of the PC and the inside of the computer too. It is better to let us know and help you.

Through your post I have discovered that I have a DVI equipped computer, so all I need for the present is a DVI VGA adaptor to see what I have. I will need a new and better monitor later to replace my junk back-up.

Thankyou very much
