problems connecting a g4 powerbook to an external monitor
I figured out my problems!
Here's where I am now
The screen for my 15" powerbook g4 (aluminum) no longer works but all of the software and drives are in tact. When the laptop is turned on, a white screen comes up.
Using the DVI to VGA connector that came with the laptop, I successfully connected the laptop to an old gateway 2000 PC monitor after pressing option+f7 on the laptop.
And by attaching an external mouse and keyboard I can wake the computer up after I close the lid. It is suggested that at least once in a while you reopen the lid so the laptop can cool through the laptop keyboard.
