Having problems with your ViewSonic PF790 PERFECT FLAT 19" Monitor ?

FORGOT HOW TO HOOK-UP MONITOR (PF790) TO MAC G4.

\015 I WAS IN A NURSING HOME FOR THE LAST 41/2 YEARS, AND MY SISTER THROUGH OUT ALL MY MANUALS. I USED TO KNOW HOW TO PUT THINKS TOGETHER INSTINCTIVELY, BUT I'M GETTING OLDER NOW!!!.\015\012\015\012DO YOU HAVE SOME SORT OF A SCHEMATIC AROUND, AND CAN YOU TELL ME THE TYPES OF CABLES?\015\012\015\012\015

Answers :

YOU HAVE A CABLE THAT HAS TO GO TO THE COMPUTER FROM THE MONITOR. AND ANOTHER ONEFROM THE MONITOR TO THE PLUG. BOTH CABLES SHOULD BE FITTED INTO THE MONITOR FIRST. YOU SHOULD LOOK AT THE END OF THE CABLE THAT GOES TO THE COMPUTER AND LOOK FOR A MATCHING SOCKET. SEE ON THE BACK OF THE COMPUTER EITHER A KETTEL LIKE ACCEPTING PLUG SOCKET. LIKE ON THE KETTEL. AND THE CABLE FROM THE MONITOR SHOULD BE LIKE A THREE PIN KETTAL LEAD. OR IT MAY BE A CONNECTOR WITH PINNS IN IT FROM THE MONITOR INSTEAD OF THE KETTEL LEAD. WITCH EVER ONE IS FITTED. THE OPPOSING SOCKET WILL BE THERE. YOU FIT THIS TOGETHER AND IT WILL WORK. MAKE SURE THE COMPUTER IS PLUGGED OUT BEFOR TOCHING THE BACK. THE COMPUTER IS THE TOWER OR BOX THE MONITOR CONNECTS TO.
Have a look on the back of the monitor for the output socket.
\015\012
\015\012If the socket is blue with 15 round holes then this is a SVGA socket, if it is white then it's a DVI socket. Though I believe that this monitor only had SVGA outputs.
\015\012
\015\012Look for these same sockets on the G4, and connect the cable to the matching socket.
\015\012
\015\012If you have one which is blue and one white you will need an adapter for the cable.

Resolution I have a Power Mac G4 with a Rage 128 AGP graphics card. I bought this monitor because it said it was Mac compatible. I called ViewSonic support and was told the CD that came with it wouldn't help and I would probably need a new graphics card. I have searched for a new graphics card but not sure what is compatible with my G4 and/or monitor. I have tried many of the available resolutions in system preferences with none being acceptable. Is it time to return the monitor?
