I have a Compaq FP-500 flat panel monitor that I want to use with a Dell Dimension XPST500 tower. (Bottom line is I have a working tower from one system and a good monitor from another one.) My problem is the connector from the monitor cable is not compatible with the monitor outlet of the Dell. In looking at my Compaq manual, it says the input terminal is a 20 pin, mini D connector. The female connection on the Dell is the typical 15 pin variety that a monitor (not flat panel) plugged into. Is there some way for me to be able to use this flat panel with this tower? Any help greatly appreciated on how I would do this.
