    my friend want to buy a new pc , but he dont want to buy a display for it, want to use it with his lcd tv. I havent seen that LCD's pin connections .(ONIDA 26LM100F). It has one DVI ,and one "D-sub" (is that VGA?) a blue female type connector with 15 pins.

    my question is can he connect his pc with that lcd ? need any adaptors? what kind of cables? how to check that connectors are working fine without connecting to a pc?

    There are two types of monitor plug, DVI and D-sub and the lcd tv has it. Definitely you can!

    D-Sub is VGA. Since in the picture you posted both TV and laptop having DVI is only listed as a possibility and VGA a certainty, it'll definitely work with VGA (D-Sub).

    If your friend is buying a new PC (desktop, I assume) it'll have VGA out so s/he'll be all right. Just connect the TV via VGA (D-Sub) where the "normal" PC-monitor would be.

    You may have to fiddle the TV resolution (pixels) though.
