but the gpu's DVI-D port, looks like this :


https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/81IyVW%2BKWFL._AC_SL1500_.jpg



that is the one that I got from my friend has 24+5 pins! while the gpu dvi-d port has 24+1 holes.

I know it may sound stupid but my question is , can I simply remove (break) the excessive pins and use this or should I be looking for a DVI-D to VGA adapter instead ?
sorry, this quarantine thing really made every daily task a struggle !
Thanks a lot in advance
and have a great day

I do not recommend breaking pins. Besides the fact you ruin the connector for possible future uses, it is possible a small stub of the pin will remain preventing the connector from seating completely.

I suggest you buy a new cable. You may have order it on-line and wait for delivery. There are also DVI-D to DVI-I adapters.

No it cannot, the first picture is a passive DVI-I to VGA adapter.
DVI-I works with a passive converter(just rewiring the pins to the VGA connector) because there is a VGA signal(Analog) and a digital signal in the same output connector. The extra pins are required to carry the analog signal needed for VGA. In-fact the 4 pins are analog red, green, blue and horizontal-sync if I remember correctly.

It sounds like you need a DVI cable or a DVI to HDMI cable

Thanks a lot guys really appreciate it.
Actually I have ordered one, but it doesnt come until the next Friday! (I ordered this a week ago!!!)
SO I guess it cant be helped and I need to wait until my order is sent!
I also found this and it seems its not possible as the flat pin on DVI-I is wider than the one in the DVI-D :
The long flat pin on a DVI-I connector is wider than the same pin on a DVI-D connector, so even if the four analog pins were manually removed, it still wouldn't be possible to connect a male DVI-I to a female DVI-D. It is possible, however, to join a male DVI-D connector with a female DVI-I connector.

It will not work. DV-I to VGA is useless for you. That card only supports digital output.

If you remove the 4 analog pins, that adapter will not work at all.
