    You need more than a lead. The barco has 4 inputs, right?
    R,G,B and S. The S - sync - input is combined horizontal and vertical sync.
    The PC outputs separate syncs.
    You need a box to electronically combine the sync signals.
    Basically the box has a D-plug input connected via a VGA lead to your PC. The box has 4 cables coming out - R,G,B and S.
    Barco's boxes are over £100.
    Roland at B4 may be able to supply a used one. Or you could find the circuit diagram from the internet and build it with maplin parts costing about a fiver.
