Monitor connections – VGA, DVI + HDMI

Flat screen monitors for computers can have 3 different type of video connection to your computer:

  • VGA is the oldest (and is usually blue)
  • DVI is newer (and is usually white)
  • HDMI is the most recent (and is usually coloured black)

When buying a new monitor or computer, check that both items share at least one of the above connection types – otherwise you may need to buy a different cable or adapter to connect them (usually around £15 in most stores). If you need advice, please contact me here
