    I have an old 16" Apple monitor that I want to put on a PC. I know they make adapters for PC monitors to connect to old MACs, but how about the other way around?

    If it's a 16" monitor... throw it in the trash.

    While it's true that Mac monitors can be adapted, the 16" Apple RGB monitors are fixed sync 832x624, which is not supported on PCs and looks like junk anyway. Any effort/money expended on making it work would be better spent on a used 17" multisync monitor.

    On a side note, I personally threw out about 14 working Apple 16"s because it was just a waste of time trying to even give them away.
