HI
I have a 7100/80 AV with 16 mb ram running system 7.5. I t had been acting very slow for some time - read slower than a mac plus...especially for screen refreshes (a very slow mo version). Running Norton reported reasonable speeds for all things except for video which clocked in at 0.25% of a Quadra 610. Zapped Pram, ran a virus check etc to no avail
Finally, yesterday the video went out altogether. The monitor green light comes on and then goes out. The rest of teh computer appears to boot up and go through its motions. Is it likely that the AV board has died. There seems to be another monitor port on the computer, but the connector is not the kind that the monitor cable goes to. ANy ideas on how to access that port or connect to it. My books are lost. Also, any point in reformatting my hard disk and putting a new system on ?
Thanks
