    Or, someone knows the pin out of this tipe of monitor?

    Which monitor? A model number would help!

    Look here for info on the connector pinout configuration;

    It may help you wire an adapter.

    It's possible that the monitor is not designed to display the
    resolution the video card is outputting.

    It's also possible that the sync is positive, when the monitor
    requires a negative sync...

    Type the model number into google and have a fish around. You might
    be surprised!

    More than that is needed. All Mac video cables have some non video
    signal pins jumpered to id the resolution of the monitor connected.

    If you start up the Mac without something pluged into the video out
    port, it sulks and puts out nothing.
