Hi

Can you connect a Mac monitor to a winPC? I can get my hands on an adapter to allow me to plug it into the PC, but where does the power come from? There's no power socket like you would get on a Windows PC.

On the Mac monitor, besides the actual monitor cable there are 2 others: a small female jack and a usb plug. Do these have something to do with the power?


Help appreciated

Yes, you can but you will need these.

23" 90W power adapter( 30" has a 150 W adapter)

and a cord

Although it looks like a standard computer power cord would do.

Early mac monitors will need a vga to ADC adapter.

The newer mac monitors use the DVI connector so either you need a DVI to VGA adapter or a DVI Video card. On some computers with video cards that are unable to adjust the frequency you will need a Mitsubishi AD-A205 adapter.
