I'm trying to hook my computer up to my LCD television. It has a VGA input and my computer has a mid grade 256mb GeForce. I don't have the money to buy the proper cables or I'd just do that. I have two oldish monitors that I cut the cables off of and attached in the middle to create the new cable from them. Everything is properly attached and I even practiced once on a separate cable and ensured there's no shorts in the line but my TV still can't get a signal from my computer. A few of the "what could have went wrong" brainstorms I have are that the new cable isn't properly shielded where they connect, there is a short and I need to cut the cable and try again, LCDs use a different type of VGA cable, or since the cables came from different manufacturers they have different pinouts from one another and what is one color on one cable doesn't match a color on another cable. Any help or branstorming at all will be greatly appreciated.
