    This monitor was used as a Vax station Daisey chained. I want to use it as a PC monitor on my Compaq Pressario 5200 running Win 98. I have an ATI Rge 2 video card. I need to know if this video card will support the monitor? Tried hooking up no go. If the ATI will not support can anyone tell me what one will?

    Thanks

    I am still learning about digital monitors, but I do know that an analog video card will not work with a digital monitor. You will have to get a digital video card so that the monitor will work. Look around for computer shops that sell digital cards. The only brands I know of are Matrox and Elsa. These are high-end cards, and cost a fortune.

    Sorry, I missed a line in the specs. If the display signal is analog, then it should work with your card. Did it come with a manual? It may need an adapter.

    You might try Sony's web site and do a search on the model number or see if you can find their tech support area.

    If that doesn't turn up anything, you might try a web search on the web for video monitor tech support web sites. You might find a sight that caters to video monitor problems and solutions.

    It looks like i am going to need a fixed frequency video card. Is there anyone out here who has used one? Can you recomend a good fixed frequency card? ie Saturn GL AGP, Saturn GL PCI or Gemini 3D. If i install one of these will a "normal" pc monitor be able to run on this card?

    Thanks in advance for any help.
