    Some computer monitors have 5 connectors, the standard RGB plus horizontal sync and Vertical sync. If you have on of these monitors you will not get any picture as the monitor is not seeing any sync signals.

    There's no true VGA connection between a PS2 and a VGA monitor that I am aware of. The best you can get is one of those crappy VGA boxes that accept the video and audio jacks and turn the info into a picture that can be viewed on a monitor.

    I wouldn't bother though, I got one and the picture isn't up to much to be fair. Stick to RGB or Component (if your TV accepts) as these provide the best image.
