Answers :

If one of those 5 computers has a working monitor,
\015\012set the device-resolution to 800-by-600 and the refresh-rate to 60 Hz.
\015\012
\015\012Then, disconnect the "working" monitor, and connect the "problem" monitor.
\015\012
\015\012It should say "auto-adjust", and then it should continue to display that 800-by-600 image.
\015\012
\015\012Try upping the device-resolution to 1024-by-768,
\015\012and see if the "problem" monitor will support that resolution.
\015\012
\015\012Try upping the device-resolution to 1280-by-1024,
\015\012and see if the "problem" monitor will support that resolution.
