Bought a low profile pcie card. Has a 45 female connector.
Want to find an adapter to connect it to a 15 pin male monitor cable.

Got an adapter off Ebay.......pennies but it is the wrong adapter...lol

Which card did you buy & what did you buy it for, gaming? My guess is you got a professional design card such as an nvidia quadro. You probably need a dms-59 to vga adapter such as this:

Yep I do believe that is the adapter I need.
The computer is a gateway sx2800.
About six months ago I was asked to fix it....Had a bunch of crapware and the fake anti virus program on it. Two weeks later it comes back with even more crapware.
Wrote down the key, formatted and reinstalled Vista.

So another co worker asked if I could fix their computer....guess what...same gateway.
except now it was in pieces and no video and the sata cable connectors were broken and the hd was gone.

Have hd and cables...beeps when no memory so the video card is to see if this machine has any life left in it.

Funny, she bought the computer from the first person.....I have a note posted at work....free computer internet ready.
