I don't know much about this, but you should read the reviews which clearly say it will not work because it does not convert the signal. Something like this might work:
Your monitor has composite but not VGA input? I don't understand what you're trying to do now. If the cable I linked does work, it should connect to your monitor and you could get other adaptors to use its audio outputs with computer speakers. Yes, there are VGA to composite adaptors but that would more likely be used to send a computer signal to a TV.
i have no clue how this stuff works so bare with me...
My Monitor has one of those ports where u fasten in with the screw like things and its blu e says HD15.
I need to hook up a Compostie Cable ot an HDMI (which ever possible) to it
oh and please help i mve tomrrow and want to figure it out by the end of tomorrow
That will work no problems at all mate!!!! I use an HDMI to DVI-D cable with my PS3 and it works fantastically well!!!! Indeed and you can definitely connect your speakers through the optical port, as Sony was clever enough to allow audio to be outputted over multiple connections!!!
DVI is a digital signal. Just searching "HD15" it does seem like that is a VGA, not DVI, input. So it will not work in the same way as HDMI to DVI.
OP, did you look at the link I posted? I think this is exactly what you need. You may be able to find a cheaper one; there were a couple of that type but I didn't look too hard. I don't know of any speakers like you wanted, but as I said you can just use any computer speakers if you buy adaptors like this:
Indeed JERM you are correct, DVI is indeed a digital signal and VGA is Analogue, however both yours and my suggestions are still correct. The HDMI to VGA cable will work perfectly fine (albeit with not as nice quality as DVI), but it will work 100%!
