Apple Mac 9600/350 problems

\015 Hi,\015\012\015\012Im having trouble with my 9600/350. It used to run fine, but Ive since upgraded a few things to put it to work in my audio and midi studio. It has an opcode studio 4 on the printer port, an m-audio audiophile 2496 pci card and 2x2 usb midi box, a usb 1.1 card, a 6mb pci mac video card, a digidesign sample cell pci card, a 9gb scsi HD and a scsi CDROM and ZIP drive as well as 500mb of ram running on os 9.1 with OMS installed as well as the relevant drivers for the other audio gear. The machine seems to crash randomly, and especially when trying to play back or record in logic or cubase via the 2496 card. Can anyone offer any suggestions please?\015\012\015\012Thanks,\015\012\015\012John\015

Answers :

Try moving the PCI sound card to another PCI slot. On standard PC machines the IRQs are limited to 15 and many cards require their own, not a shared one. (start from the lowest going up... Leave the graphics card in the top slot (if PCI as well)

I am trying to connect an external monitor to my legacy PowerBook G4 laptop.  I have the original video adapter dongle that Apple provided, which goes from digital video to VGA.  I've tried different resolution settings on the mac, and I've tried a couple of different flat panel monitors, but none seem to be compatible--at least, none seem to be able to detect and match to the Mac's resolution. The basic symptom is this: on the flat panel monitor, all I see is a small portion of the desktop-
