Hi all,

I've an "Apple Multiple Scan 15 Display" monitor connected to my Performa 630.
The Performa has a non-VGA connector (I don't know its technical name), while
the monitor has a standard VGA connector.  Both are connected with a cable that
has these different connectors, one in each end.

My question is... can I connect this monitor to a PC?  As it has a standard
connector in it, I guess the answer is "yes", but I'm afraid it can be damaged.
(I've another PC laying around that I'd like to power up, but not enough space
for yet another monitor, so it could be great if I'd share this one).

I've Googled a bit, and all I've found are converters between both kinds of
connectors, but no real answer to this (stupid) question.
