    VGA Ribbon Cable

    Trying to source a cable that has a VGA end, a ribbon cable, and then pins. The pins are in two rows with 6 at the top and 6 at the bottom.

    It's come from a graphics card.

    No idea what you call it or where to get one. I've tried general Google searches but no joy yet.

    It's like this but with the two rows of 6 pins.

    are you trying to make it longer? If so, i DIY'd 2 of my graphic cards ribbon cables. Basically they are the same as the IDE leads so i decided to cut the ribbon cable on the graphics card, carefully seperated each individual wire, stripped them and joined them. Works a treat.

    No there's a snapped screw in the VGA end so I cannot secure it into place on the case. I'm sure a bit of super glue might work instead but if I can source a cheap replacement.

    It's usually called a VGA header (or extension) cable. There is one on eBay here. It's made by XFX but should work fine with any graphics card.

    Perfect. Looks like it has the right end too.
