Computer Moniter Question

How do I get a monitor with a cable like this...

to hook up to a netbook with an input like this?

Or to a normal computer monitor port?

can't truly tell for the glare, but it looks like yo need to run to radioshack and get a serial/usb cable...

I'm pretty hooking a netbook up to a monitor defeats the purpose.

Chimpotle - Not for me it doesn't!

with this: http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=104&cp_id=10419&cs_id=1041902&p_id=2081&seq=1&format=2

and an hdmi cable.

If the link doesn't work, you need a female dvi to female hdmi adapter, then an hdmi cable. Cheaper from monoprice.com

There may be a single cable out there that does this too, but I couldn't find it real fast like.

make sure to get the genders right though, you'd use a male to male hdmi cable with the mentioned adapter

mike - Excellent! You rock! Thanks!

Why not just hook up your netbook to your flat screen?

If you can take both components, or at least that cable from you monitor, to radio shack. They have cable for every thing.
