I have a digital monitor I got at a yard sale, it has 3-5 cables come out of back that terminate at a vga type connector, when I plug it in video card the monitor shuts off, unplug and start monitor again, it stays on. DO I need drivers or a special graphics/vid card for this monitor? Will post model #......
Digital is the brand of monitor.

-heh.. this is probably so late you won't read it,
but for what its worth, here's what I know:

The VRC-16 does not need any funky drivers or anything
to operate. It is VGA, and it should work with most video cards
as long as it isn't broken. You said there were 3-5 bnc cables
on the back? are you sure they are plugged in in the correct
fashion? If there are 3, they are just R-G-B, red, green, blue,
pretty simple. If there are 5, its a bit more complicated. The
other two are horizontal and vertical sync. The white cable goes
to the H-sync (possibly labeled 'HD') and the black cable goes to
the V-sync (possibly 'VD'). If its hooked up correctly, and your
video card works, but it still shuts off.. it might be busted,
difficult to say. Hope this helps.

Sounds like you may have a CGA monitor instead of
a VGA.
your best bet is go to a search engine and find
how to contact the manufacturer.
