I am trying to hook up my 360 to a view sonic vs 12394 I got the cables to hook it up with a VGA but it does not fit. I also have a VGA to a dvi but the dvi is to small. Not sure what more I need. Thank you for any info you may have.

What exactly about the VGA doesn't fit?

Can we get some pictures of the ports and cables?

The monitor is a dvi port and the dvi adapter have does not fit the monitor. I bought the cables from Microsoft to fit a VGA. I then used a dvi adapter to fit the cable to my monitor the left side (long prong) does not fit the opening.

VGA is analog, so the DVI type will be analog only, where your monitor expects a digital only signal. There are HDMI to DVI adapters though.

Why would you want to hook a garbage source like the 360 up to a monitor?
The only way to do it would be using an HDMI to DVI cable or adapter, assuming your monitor doesn't have HDMI in.

Your monitor is DVI-D, digital DVI. A VGA-DVI adapter will not work, VGA is an analog signal while DVI can be either both or only one. That flat prong in the connector doesn't have anywhere to fit because the female DVI port is digital, while the male DVI cable is analog.
