If you have a computer with a small form factor (SFF) case, you may need to connect an SS cable to your monitor. SS cables are thinner and more flexible than standard VGA or DVI cables, so they’re easier to route through tight spaces. Plus, they’re available in different colors to help you match your system’s aesthetics. Here’s how to connect an SS cable to your monitor:
- First, power down your computer and unplug all of the cables from the back of the case.
- Next, locate the SS port on your monitor. It’s usually labeled with the SS logo, and it may be located next to the VGA or DVI port. If you can’t find it, consult your monitor’s manual.
- Now, take the SS cable and insert it into the SS port on your monitor. Make sure that the cable is fully inserted; you should feel a slight click when it’s in place.
- Finally, plug the other end of the SS cable into the SS port on your computer’s graphics card. Once again, make sure that the cable is fully inserted.
- Now you can power on your computer and enjoy the benefits of an SS connection.
Keep in mind that not all monitors have SS ports. If your monitor doesn’t have one, you can still use a standard VGA or DVI cable. However, you won’t be able to take advantage of the thinner, more flexible design of the SS cable.
