Matrox to VGA Conversion

My old computer (it's about 5 years old) had a cable that converted it's video card output to my VGA monitor.  I've lost the cable, and can't find a replacement.  I'm not sure what type of video card output it is, but someone mentioned that it might be a "Matrox".  The output is a D-shaped plug, about 7/8" long, with four rows of 15 holes each (there is one hole missing - so it's actually a 59-pin connection).  Unlike the DVI I tried, the input does not have a place for any flat pins.  Any idea what this is, or where I can get a converter cable for it?

Thanks,

Phil

Its a DMS-59 cable - see HERE (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DMS-59)

I cant really help you with locating a replacement as I have no idea where you're based - unless you can give me an idea.
