Step 1: Time to Find the Parts!

Before you start this project, you need a few things.

1. Xbox 360 Console

2. LCD or CRT Computer Monitor. ( Just for a quick FYI, Mine is a 20 inch Dell wfp)

3.Stereo female RCA to male 3.5mm Cable Which Is needed to get the sound from your computer speakers.

4.Xbox 360 VGA HD AV Cable if your monitor does not have a component port. (mine does so no pictures)

PLEASE READ: to get the part 3 & 4, go to amazon.com or Radioshack ( I got my cables at Radioshack for $10)

Step 2: Hook Up the Xbox 360 VGA HD AV Cable

If your monitor has a composite port, skip this step!

Steps:

1. Unplug The Old Cable From Your Xbox 360.

2. Unplug the VGA cable out of your monitor.

3. Insert the AV Connector on the Cable Into The Xbox 360.

4. Screw The VGA Cable Into Your Monitor

NOTE: I have a composite cable on my monitor so there will be no pictures for this step. I am sorry.

Step 3: Hook Up the Speakers

Now turn on your Xbox and your monitor. You will notice something immediately, WHERE IS THE SOUND! Luckily, the hook up is dead simple.

1. Unplug your speakers from your computer. ( If you do not know what the speaker cable looks like, it is green)

2. Take out your stereo female RCA to male 3.5mm

3. Plug the RED & WHITE plugs on the VGA cable into the stereo female RCA to male 3.5mm

4. Plug the speaker plug ( green plug ) into the stereo female RCA to male 3.5mm

Look at the pictures below for more detail

Step 4: Testing Time!

Turn on your Xbox 360, Monitor, and Speakers. It Works!!!!
If it does not work please look over the steps. If it somehow still does not work, PM me.

Step 5: Have Fun

Play Call of Duty 4, Halo, or Rock Band because you have successfully finished this project.
