Hi,I'm sorry about the issue. Can you please confirm the model of your Apple 23" Cinema HD Display, such as M9178LL/A? Please check at the back of the Apple display.And what is the model of your PC? Does the PC have a VGA port, or DVI port, or HDMI port?Please reply at the box below. Thank you,

- The USB cable is not for the display connection. The USB cable is for enabling the USB ports on the Apple display.- Your Apple 23" Cinema HD Display should have a DVI port. You would get an DVI cable (for a few dollars from your local computer store or online), and connect it from the PC to the Apple display, then it will work. You do not need any driver software.; Note: If your PC does not have a DVI port, then you will also need to get a DVI-to-VGA adapter or a DVI-to-HDMI adapter, which is a few dollars also.- For more details, please answer my questions in my previous reply above.When you are available, please reply at the box below to continue. Thank you,
