You would be correct, you can use a simple adapter to convert DVI-I to analog VGA, you cannot with DVI-D.

Pay attention, I wasn't discussing the OP, I was confirming what you said about the incorrect info James posted about the 4 extra pins on the DVI-I connector.

I wanted the OP to be clear that 'you' is 'me' and not OP, I knew what you mean but I didn't think the OP would.

The OP can probably still find the exact specs for his Toshiba, if he just Googles Toshiba L505-___, filling in the rest of the model number. (or was it an L505D?) My Toshibas of that approximate vintage have VGA and also HDMI-CEC (the Intel Core Duo) and HDMI-CEC Regza Link™ (the U505 I5 machine)
