About 18 months ago we bought an E-Machines desktop, including the CPU, keyboard, and monitor.
Now we’ve noticed that the end of the monitor cable that goes into the CPU is missing a couple of pins. In spite of this it worked, more or less, until this afternoon, and the monitor obviously is not getting signals from the computer. My first thought, when I noticed that pins were missing, was that I could just dash around the corner to Radio Shack and buy a new monitor cable for a few bucks…until I noticed that the other end is hardwired into the monitor itself.
Can this be fixed? Is there a way I can replace the cable myself?
