AlphaServer monitors

I need to replace a monitor on a DS10 (OpenVMS) with a Elsa Gloria Synergy video card. Why won't a regular PC monitor work? My old DEC VRT17 works fine but a PCXCV-DW only works in console mode and goes black when DecWindows starts. Is there some setting on the card?

Re: AlphaServer monitors

The setting is not on the card but it is the screen refresh rate that is being run by the VMS driver, run the config on the card from the text console in VMS.

Hmmmm....
Hit the halt button. It should bring you to this prompt:

P00>>>

Type this

P00>>> show console

If it says

P00>>> console serial

Try to change it by this

P00>>> set console graphics
P00>>> init
