OK, so I finally bought a Mini-VGA -> VGA adapter for my eMac. I was soo excited when it got here today! But, unlucky as always, nothing showed up on my external monitor. I go through Display settings and it pops up with the separate window for the VGA display, but NOTHING happens on the other monitor. So I unplug it and go over to my iBook G3. Plug the cable in and the SAME thing happens. Shows up in settings and all that, but there is no sign of life on the external monitor. Is it the NEW cable that I JUST bought? Or the computers? Or the displays? I used different displays but they are both Gateways. I might try it with my TV to see if it might be something with Gateway monitors... hmm. Also, the eMac is a 1.42Ghz model and it has Spanning Doctor enabled. The iBook G3 is a 700Mhz model and I have tried with Spanning Doctor both disabled and enabled. PLEASE HELP!
