  2. Connect the 15 pin VGA connector of the supplied signal cable to the output VGA video connector on the PC and the matching input connector on the rear of the monitor. The connectors will mate only one way. If you cannot attach the cable easily, turn the connector upside down and try again. When mated, tighten the thumbscrews to secure the connection.

This adapter changes the high density 3 row 15 pin VGA connector to the correct 15 pin 2 row connection to mate with your MAC. Attach the other end of the signal cable to the side of the adapter block with 3 rows. Connect the attached adapter block/signal cable to the video output on your MAC.
  3. Connect the plug from the AC-DC adapter into the connector on the display unit. Connect one end of the AC power cord into the AC-DC adapter. Plug the other end into a properly grounded three-prong AC outlet.
  4. Power on the PC, then the monitor.
