Are Pin assignments on monitor connector okay?

    A 17" monitor (Emachines Eview 17P) only has 13 connector pins rather
    than the usual 15 pins for a PC. The 5 GND (ground) and the 9 NC (no
    connect) are completely missing, but the 10 GND (ground) is still
    intact. because the 10 GND is a ground, shouldn't I be okay, despite
    the 5 GND being missing?
    Help would be really appreciated in assessing this matter.

    Wild and dangerous, I know, but have you plugged the damn thing in and tried
    it ?

    That'll tell you more than any theory ever will .. ;)
