✔ Best Answer
What fo you mean the PC one?

If you mean a 15 pin VGA socket with the pins in three rows then yes,take it out. You only need one input source at a time.

A HDMI cable to connect the HDMI ports can easily be obtained at any computer stores or on-line.

The HDMI cable will give you better quality as well. It cuts out the digital to analogue and analogue to digital conversion required with the 15 pin VGA cable. With HDMI its digital all the way.

Just as an aside, if you wanted to run two monitors, the chances are that if you were to plug the VGA cable into a second VGA monitor you can have two monitors.

You would have to check the Graphics specifications but most graphics hardware with both HDMI and VGA outputs can run two monitors simultaneously.

Here's are the 3 main types: http://www.abadicomputer.com.my/ima...

VGA is analog. It is the least desireable of the 3.
DVI is digital.
HDMI is digital + audio.

So, if you have a separate speaker system you may want to use DVI instead. You also may need to select the input port from a menu on the monitor screen.

The audio from HDMI only works if your monitor has built-in speakers. You can still use the HDMI cable with a separate audio cable for the external speakers, or you can use a DVI cable with external speakers. It's up to you. Make sure to set the display to the monitor's native resolution, anything else will look like crap.

When changing the resolution is the native resolution on of the options? If so, are you clicking both the Apply and the OK buttons when changing it?
