One of the usual SUN computer monitors. Almost impossible to get working with VGA cards on PCs. Best sold off to someone who will exclaim "I'll try to make it work."
I was hoping perhaps someone here could help me. I recently was given a nice 20 inch monitor by a guy who was going to a flatscreen, and didn't have space in his apartment for the older monitor. He was running it on a mac, with an adapter which had dip switches. From what I've found out, I think this is so you can run an IBM monitor on a mac (not sure). The cable
ended in RGB and the black sync wire.
After a little digging, I was able to buy a vga cord that had the four outputs. However, I tried to connect it, and the monitor looks all scrambled. I checked the inputs, and they're all set.
My computer is a P3-500, running with a Voodoo3-3000 card. There are no distinguishing marks on the monitor to tell me who makes it, or what model #
it is. There's a serial #, 1894470020, with a small DM subscript underneath, on the back. Digital Machines? The controls on the bottom of
the monitor are v-stat,h-stat,v-cent, brightness,contrast, power.
I'm hoping to find out what make/model this monitor is, and what the refresh,resolution, and such should be. There's a utility where I can change the refresh of my video card. It might only work for windows, but
that's all I work in anyway...I can stand it garbling until windows boots.
If I have to, I'll see about getting a Gemini card (for fixed frequency monitors), but I'd rather not if I can avoid it.
I've included links to some quick pictures I took of the monitor, as well as
the adapter for the mac, in case that'd jog anyone memory. Thanks for your
help in advance.
