Enjoy the repost.
This INSTRUCTABLE came into being because of the new craze of NETBOOKS.
These small laptops have only 3 or less USB ports which is fine for some people, but for others that want to use an external Mouse, Keyboard, or just want to charge your MP3 player, cellphone or even to power a power hungry peripheral like a USB hub or external slimline DVD Burner.
This also works on Desktop systems as well!
Also, why take up a much-needed USB port for your USB novelty item? (drink warmer/cooler, lights, fans, etc...)
Step 1: Parts
We need a male to male VGA gender changer and a female plug from any old USB extension cable.
