    I have recently purchased an old PC Compatibility Card off of ebay, and am having a bit of trouble getting it setup. i've put it into a Beige G3 DT 266, and i've installed 1.6.1 PC setup software, setup a 1024mb PC HD, etc, and it says it's fine and all that, but when i try and switch over to the PC it just dims the screen and nothing happens. i saw what looked like a monitor out plug on the back with the typical apple monitor symbol, but it had 3 rows of pins, and to my knowledge apple monitors have always had 2 rows of pins (at least all of mine do).

    Any help on why it's not working for me would be greatly appreciated.
