You'll need a serial to USB adapter. Those are available, again for short money, on Ebay. I like the ones that use a FTDI chip set and that's very common. If the Ebay ad doesn't say what kind of chip set it uses, then email the seller before you buy and ask.I took a closer look at my laptop and realized that this cable wouldn't work. I would need the female side to be a USB connection. Would this work still?
DB-15 VGA is Video - NOT RS232 Serial - two totally different things.Ghost post from the past to go "bump" in the day (from 4 months ago)... Hope I'm not violating any rules by doing that, but I am looking for one of these, and have found a few cables on eBay that are Vista compatible, and they are priced very well. I was this close to buying one custom made for a Dell Laptop with a HD-DB-15 VGA serial port. It was going to cost me almost $30.00 to have made. Unbelievable!
Yeah, that occurred to me after almost buying the cable.:lol:DB-15 VGA is Video - NOT RS232 Serial - two totally different things.
