Interesting problem here....

I built a system about a month ago with an A7V, and 800 mhz t-bird.
I was using a voodoo3 2000 agp accelerator (too cheap to buy a new one :)) hooked up to a sony HMD-A200.
I worked well for awhile, but after a few days, the moniter blew. I took it back and the same thing happened with the next....and the next...hehe. So I went out and bought a viewsonic and it works just fine.
MY question is does anyone know whay this would happen?
I have a great surge protector, cost around 120 cad, and all the wiring in my house have been checked out for bad spots. The vid card is properly seated in the agp slot and I have all the latest drivers. And yes, I am also running the proper resolution and refresh rates.

Any ideas?
tnx

how long did the moniter work for?
also, mine made a funny clicking noise, like it was being turned on and off, over and over...
sound familiar?

i just got my money back and bought a diff brand....

If your all using Voodoo cards then there's your
answer. Were any of your cards/systems Overclocked?

nope... no overclocking,

besides, i think that would only fry my card, not my moniter
those sony's can handle way more than what I could o'c my v3 card to...
but thanks anyway... :)

yep, all the moniters had good ventilation.....
but going through 3-4 moniters from sony is weird (unless sony made a bad batch)
but it shows how good the stores' return policy is.. heh

Is the power cord correctly plugged into your monitor? The switching on and off problem seems to be the source. I also use an A7V+Thunderbird with a Sony E200, but my vid card is a GeForce2, and there hasn't been any problems
