    I have a Macintosh IIci, when I try and hook it up to an AppleVission 1705 (or something like that) no image appears on the screen. The Mac IIci boots though. I noticed that if I unscrew the monitor plug from the monitor itself I see a standard VGA port. So maybe the IIci doesn't work with a VGA monitor? I have an old Apple 13 inch monitor for the IIci but I don't want to get it from the attic since it's heavy and I don't want to drop it :rolleyes:

    Any Ideas?

    This might help

    What are you trying to do with a 14-year old computer anyway though?

    btw, the 1705 is a multisync monitor, which is why it doesn't work.

    oh...

    Ok cool thanks! I wonder what the difference between the Mac II adapter and the vSync adapter. Oh well thanks, I will look into that. I love playing around with old macs, I want to get the IIci online since I got a Nubus ethernet card for it. Thanks for your help...:)
