analog vga connector

Hello all.
All engineers out there,can you answer me please?
If you want to take a graphic card and make it giving NO analog signal to a monitor (black screen) without damaging the rest PCB circuit, what should you do?
Which pin(s) should you cut off or short wire of the 15-analog output?
Take a look at this link:

  1. Umm unplug it? What are you trying to do?
  2. Ok i mean although that the monitor is plugged in, no signal(or false) is given.
    Any thoughts?
  3. I'm with MagicPants - what is it you are trying to accomplish?
    Jo
  4. Um....what?
  5. The OP is referring to the 3-pin monitor ID on the original VGA connector, predating DDC standard two-way communication. He wants the card to think no monitor is connected thus using whatever is the default or Basic mode.

    4 11 12
    ID2 ID0 ID1
    n/c n/c n/c no monitor
    n/c n/c GND Mono monitor which does not support 1024x768
    n/c GND n/c Color monitor which does not support 1024x768
    GND GND n/c Color monitor which supports 1024x768

    It seems to me 4, 11, and 12 would all have to be removed.
  6. I think i should remove the 3 colors:1-2-3 or 6-7-8 pins
    What do you think?
