Subject: Using GDM-17E10 Monitor on a PC

Hi SUN Managers,
we are trying to use several 17" Multisync
SUN-Monitors (GDM-17E10) via 13W3 to VGA connector
on a PC.
But there is no result, the monitor relays in Power-Save
mode (i.e. the unit goes into suspend mode).
That means, that either H sync or V sync aren't within
that specified for the monitor.

The monitor is not really Multisync.
Especially it will not sync at the default VGA rate at power
on. The GDM17E10 will only sync at frequencies near:

        1152 x 900 71.81KHz Horiz / 76.14Hz Vert
        1280 x 1024 81.13KHz Horiz / 76.11Hz Vert

One will need to buy a special PC video card, like one of the
DCSI Corporation.

Thanks to everyone who has responded
