is it possible to connect the xbox to your monitor while your computer is connected too or do you have to switch them in and out?

I have a Princeton VF723 flat-screen monitor. It isn't LCD though. It has only a regular port to plug into a computer (and then of course the power). Will this work? You can also contact me at pacific.fb@gmail.com. That would be most easiest. Thanks!

A VGA connector is a D-sub connector but a D-sub connector can be used for many types of connections.

Your question is like asking is a Car a Volkswagon.

D-subminature connectors refer to a type of connector the is D shaped and has multiple pins in the connector. A typical VGA connector is a D-subminiature connection with 15 pins.

1. check xbox
2. check monitor
3. check to see what ports u have (VGA, HDMI, DVI, AV)
4. 2 check ur ports (TURN UR COMPUTER OFF) and open the side wall of the computer, check ur graphics card (if u have one that isn't built in 2 the motherboard) 2 and unplug graphics card.
5. Try it again.
6. If this doesn't work then i have no idea.

will i be able to access Xbox live on my monitor by connecting the network cable to 360? Please reply, i am a newbie for this .
All you have to do is plug in your ethernet cable like you would normally. This is just your display. In actuality, even if your xbox is disconnected from your monitor, but still plugged in with an ethernet cable, you're still connected to Live. =)

I've done this using the VGA adaptor on my Dell 22" LCD monitor. Looks great when playing games in HD. +1

For this to work, does the monitor have to be HDCP compliant? Thanks!
robots199 (author)  davidboyd15 years ago
No , not at all
robots199 (author)  robots1995 years ago
My Dell 2007wfp is not HDCP Compliant. I am using a composite connection instead of VGA because my monitor supports it. VGA is NOT HDCP compliant and it will work.
