Solved Ok I need some help

Post by Seldom Fail on 28th June 2009, 6:52 pm

Alright so I bought a A Open computer from a garage sale for $10...

It's from the early 90's but it's been upgraded to WinXP. For some reason the computer won't send a signal to the monitor.

We plugged it in in the only place it will go (a connection to the Graphics Card)

It has a Pentium 2 processor (I know... ancient right?)

Any ideas on how to get it the image to show up on my Dell monitor?

lol... That's so old, the VGA connection might not even be compatible with the monitor's resolution.

You can try to find drivers for the video card on the internet, but I am 100% certain you won't be able to find it.

Why would you want a pentium 2 computer anyway? I bet surfing modern websites today would also be a problem with all the lag.
