upgraded old PC's graphics and now it wont display on my monitor. I had to
drag an old Goldstar1460 out of the garage to get it to display but now I'm

What am I doing wrong. Newer card works with older monitor and older card
works with the newer monitor.
What a dilemma.

What's your question?
What's your operating system?
What have yo done to solve the problem?
What're the allowable resolutions and refresh rates for the Goldstar 1460?
What IS a Goldstar 1460?
Doesn't the Goldstar 1460 have any controls for image size?
What is the monitor that won't work with the new card?
What do you mean by"now it won't display on my monitor?
Yes it is a dilemma, but only you know the particulars that might indicate a

What's your "newer monitor"? A brand/model# would help.
Find out its maximum display resolution and refresh rate, set the
GF3Ti to that or something lower (using the older monitor, and
check BOTH resolution AND refresh rate in Windows' display
properties), then shutdown and connect the newer monitor.
The Goldstar has a 640 x 480 of 60 Hz and 800 x 600 50 Hz (no graphics cards
support this low refresh rate). There is a 1024x 768 but cant remember
refresh rate but its low. The newer monitor is an Acer 7516s model number.
XP found it without a hitch but since sticking in the GF3 Ti it only goes to
default on the goldstar. the first post screen is usually 640 x 480 I think
but the acer wont even splash this screen, its just a load of garbage.
I thought the post screen was a standard setting for all monitors but not
the Acer. The goldstar (LG now) shows the BIOS screen without a hitch but
alas not the Acer. A more up to date monitor should still be able to
display a POST screen.
My brother had a PC with onboard and the same thing happened. I want to see
something other than 640 x 480 with black borders. The adjusters do a
limited job so there is always a border on either side no matter what
adjusting is done.
