Hello, ive just obtained an old sony trinitron monitor and im having trouble getting a picture to display. The monitor is an cpd e500 21'. It works fine set up as a second monitor connected to my laptop but when its connected to my tower i dont get an image.

My laptop has a geforce 8200m graphics card and the tower has a geforce 8400 gs card.

Thanks.

It should work unless you are plugging it into a dead port. Get a dvi to vga converter. As for res it is ok for a crt but refresh rates should be higher. 85hz on my crt screens.
