Vga input broken

Ok, so i have no clue how it broke but it's broken and when i plug it in, theres nothing on my monitor and i'm sure it's not my vga cord because i used it on my other computer and it worked fine.. I have no clue and i really need some help!!. I have no other inputs on my computer like displayport or dvi.. i have usb though so i tried looking up a usb to vga but those are really expensive.. if u can find me a cheap one that'd be great.. also please help me but i am thinking of getting a cheap video card but wouldnt that make games go really slow if i buy a cheap one? the video card isn't broken just the vga part of it


edit: actually im not sure if the vga is part of the video card.. look at the picture please

No system specs.

If the "VGA part of it" is broken, the card is broken. It will probably be cheaper to buy a new card than to have the card (output port I assume) repaired.

What's the card?

If it has a DVI-I output port, you could use an adapter to get a VGA output. Those are cheap.

Hi erickho123, Have a careful look at the VGA plug end of the monitor and ensure you have no bent pins ! If the card works ok on another pc then the card is working , Have you tried the monitor on another PC ? If there are no bent pins have you tried booting into safe mode ? Safe Mode post back with your results

Either the cable connector or the card connector is bad. You can try a different cable but if it's the card connector, it needs repaired or replaced. You can also try what Bob suggests and try a DVI-VGA adapter if your card has DVI.

We have no way of knowing if a cheaper card would lower your frame rates since no one but you knows what the card or frame rate is now. Video cards constantly improve and change price and a better card could be cheaper than what you have now. Who knows?

That's why we ask for system specs. Had we known what system/motherboard you were using, we all could have saved some time. Your video is motherboard based--Not a separate card.

Looks like the motherboard connector is toast. I can't make anymore suggestions until more detail is given on your system but it will either be a new motherboard or add a video card. By the looks of the components, that's a very old board. Might be time to upgrade.
