I have a Power Mac 8600, which I upgraded to a G4 a couple of years ago. I'm using it until I decide on a new system, probably sometime in 2007. The problem that has just popped up is that my Sony Trinitron Multiscan 200sf appears to be totally wiped out. There is no indication of it being on when the power light is pressed. It had been producing a off-color image with pinkish or purple tint, but I was trying to hold off in purchasing a new monitor until I decided on a different computer. In the interim I would like to purchase a low-priced model that would serve my immediate needs yet have a halfway decent image resolution. Another concern is that I tried hooking up my Apple display that is equipped with another computer I own, a G3. However, I cannot seem to get it to work with the 8600. Does this mean that not all displays will operate with this older computer, or did I not get it hooked up right? Is it possible to use any of the LCD displays on the market, or will only certain ones work with the specifications of my machine? Any input would greatly be appreciated.
