11 Alot of the specialized monitors (my experiance is with SGI machines)
12 uses single sync monitors, which means they don't have a sync range
13 like most monitors for PC's, but a single sync range hardlocked to the
14 card in the machine the work with.
16 You'll need to find out exactly which monitor it is .. find out what
17 sync and refresh it is hardlinked with and then get your card to output
18 signal in that sync and refresh otherwise you won't get it working.
20 Please bear in mind, I have never worked on Sun monitors with PC's so
21 can't vouch for how accurate this might be ... just going from previous
22 experience with similar situation and what was the cause of it
