    Hi,

    I have tried to connect my Xbox 360 up to a PC screen using an RGB - DSUB/VGA cable. The picture displayed however I didn't get any sound and the image was very very green.

    The Xbox works fine on my normal Television, and I also tried the White/Red/Yellow cable, and switching the choice from HDMI/TV, AND going through all the possible display options on the computer screen, but nothing worked.

    So, problems are No sound and very green image. Thanks very much!

    I don't think the cable you are using has sound carrying capabilities. As to the picture, did you change the settings on the xbox for the video (maybe under AV)

    I think the main problem is your cable. Some inferior cables can't provide clear sound and picture. You can try use another cable

    There is a vga cable you buy for xbox 360, I play on my computer monitor. It plugs into the back of your xbox just like the composite/components... It has a vga end which you can plug into the back of your monitor... It also has the red/white rca audio plugs... from there get a rca audio female => 3mm male then buy a double sided female 3mm (size of computer speaker plug) then connect to your comp speakers and bam better than turtle beaches

    (sorry for my lack of terminology)
    hope this helps

    Btw I have used every flat screen monitor under the sun and the picture is awesome - change resolution in display to what best fits your monitor and try reference level on expanded that doesnt really matter as much
