so i decided i was going to build my cousin a computer for christmas. ive built on average one a month for people and very rarely run into problems. but now i have one. the mobo i ordered for his computer came with a male serial port on the board for video. very odd and was not stated in the description for the item. I cant send it back so i purchesed a serial to vga converter. this is the setup: the converter plugs right into the mobo, male on the mobo, female on the converter. then the other end of the converter, also female, goes into the male end of the vga cable. the vga cable then runs into my 19" widescreen samsung monitor, syncmaster 941bw. but no matter what i have the monitor set on, i am getting no video at all. im trying to make sure the mobo is working and there is a bios before i go any further in the build. i cant figure this out at all. if someone has any idea what the problem might be, and a solution for it, please let me know. thanks in advance.
