Does anyone happen to have an old VGA adapter for the Acer H340/HP Microserver lying around that they'd like to get rid of cheap? If I'm going to play around with the H340 It might be handy to have one.

If you can't find the cable, it looks like people installed PCIe x1video cards in these like the VCQ290NVS-PCIEX1. The go for $20 on eBay.

I read one past where a guy did that. He mentioned something about adding or removing (I couldn't tell which) a 'jumper' on the motherboard, but he didn't know if that was required to allow the video card to work.

Dang, I just ordered a PCIeX1 video card from eBay.com. Oh well. From the way his item is described I get the impression he's selling these regularly. If the video card doesn't work out.....

 

Hmmm, I don't think that 2nd one is the same cable, just cause it seems like the wires are straight in, whereas the 1st one doesn't seem to be.

 

Thanks guys. Very helpful and appreciated.

If your feeling adventuris you could make your own, I found the instructions with links for parts needed..

 

Not sure why he used some special VGA connector. Seems like it would be possible to just cut a regular VGA cable and use it?

This guy made really nice 'debug' kits. Not sure if he still makes them:

Thanks. I did find out about him when searching. On the web page he says "all good things must come to an end" :) So, nope, he's not doing them anymore. Oh well; I've got the video card coming. In fact, I just got an email saying it's been shipped. Cost me $9.99US + $12.95US shipping/customs/duties.
