I'm trying to do a VGA cable for an xbox1, and I seem to be having trouble with the vga's pinout.

I didn't have a spare old video card to use as my vga input, so I used a VGA cable instead. I used a multimeter to see which pin matches each wire (there are 9 wires inside, each with a different color)

I'm following textbook's tutorial, but I do not have wires that match the same pinout numbers... I only have 1, 3, 4, 5, 7, 11, 12, 13, 14

This was all done with a male VGA cable


(in case anyone did the mod with a similar cable, here's the layout in text)
black 1
blue 3
gray 4
pink 5
brown 7
white 11
orange 12
clear 13
yellow 14


any help is much appreciated

Do a Google for VGA pinout. You are missing the critical Red/Blue/Green Grounds. Suggest you check with the multimeter again. I don't think colors of wires matter since there are many permutations of colors/pinouts in all the VGA cables out there.

I just tested again, and I have:
1
2
3
5
9
12
13
14
15

These results are the same as the last various tries, so I am convinced that this is what I have.

On the other end of the VGA cord there is a plastic cylinder shortly after the vga connection, is it possible that if I cut before this plastic cylinder that I would have all of the wires?

But as far as I know this was a fully functioning vga cable...
