    Thank you Tlik,Sorgie, and Compmania for your input.
     I have tried all of your responses
and have not located the right driver
for this monitor. My monitor does work,but I'd really like the exact one for it as I think it would preform better.
      There is a web site that has the
driver for it but the site won't be up and running till July this year.
      Again thank you and we all may still come up for the right driver before July.
          Thanks,

Driver for monitor = inf file
-> this file contain only technicals information.

Connector = 5 BNC : Your monitor isn't "plug and play".

2 ways :
Many IBM monitor ~ Sony monitor

In my opinion your IBM monitor is a GDM20SE SONY.
-> Same size,pitch,maximal resolution and refresh rate.
Try this setting !

Build your own inf file ...
Look monitor.inf in c:\windows\inf\

  I will look for now and try to find the Sony monitor GDM 20 SE.
  I was also told that it's a IBM 6555
driver that I need for it but I can't find that driver at any place.
  Thank you very very much for you time and effort you have put into this. I still would appreciate any more assistance you can offer on this matter.

A)
Sony monitor GDM 20 SE => included in Windows 9X.

B) 6555 = P200
P200 = Trinitron technology => Sony Monitor.
You can find information about this model here :
http://www.buymebuyme.com/product/ibmp200.shtml#ProductInfoSection
->
Vertical scan range : 50-120Hz.
Your monitor : 50-150 ( better).

C) Please confirm this point :Your monitor has 5 BNC -> Your monitor isn't "plug and play".
In this case, i forget something :
-> No dpms.
In this case, your inf file must contain a complete description like IBM 9514 monitor.
In this case, your monitor isn't a SONY 20SE. Same cathode ray tube, but different electronic.  

In my opinion, you have a monitor from RS6000 world.

D ) If you can, give me your IBM part number ...( or fru?)

   Horizontal: max 1600 pixels
   Vertical:   Max 1280 pixels
   Date of mfg. 04-1944
   ID# 26-L9764
   P/N 09G3821
   I think it's a model 7012
   Again thanks so much for your effort

  I'm pretty sure a 6094 at least thats the way I read it at a site I just left.
  Color? I'd say an off white but more like beige.
  The p200 driver doesn't work well. Most all of the drivers I've tried when I restart my computer I hear a snap sound at the back of the monitor shutting down or starting up, unless this is common for theses monitors. And I have the refresh rate and resolution
set at the proper setting and it still makes that snapping noise.
  I know you are close to the solution. I myself spend hours a day searching.
  Thank you FGrache. I'll watch my e-mail for your next reply if you do.

A) 6094 : please give me your link.

B) Snap sound at the back of the monitor = electronic relay -> security (horizontal or vertical frequency to h.

C) Please confirm connector : 5 bnc -> yes or no ?.

D) Your country ? ( IBM products )

E) only one color > it's not a 6091 ( 2 colors : body = beige/bezel=brown or gray).

F)a link to identify your monitor :

I think you have a "old" 6091 19". This monitor was sell with RS6000 Unix workstations. It must be  a fixed frequency monitor.
------
Your monitor is too old to identify it with a part number ( no information on IBM web site).  
-----
Many experiences with IBM6091 monitor and Matrox Mystique and ATI Xpert99 )-> bad results.
Impossible to display something in DOS mode. It's possible to display something at 1024*768 or 1284*1024 under Win 9X but when you change something ( size,number of colors) no display.
Moreover you need to adjust internal trim to obtain a picture.
Why ?: minimal horizontal frequency : 60 khz ...

---------

With a fixed freq monitor you need special video card.
look this :

 It was made in 1994. The manual I got with it and on the bezel says it's a 20 inch monitor. I'm kinda like you in that I think it's more of a 6094 rather than a 6091.
   I'll go look at thoes video cards after while.
   I have three other place to check out for the correct monitor driver and I'll get back with you.

In my opinion there is no driver because it's not a PC monitor. It's a workstation monitor. In this case you need special video card. Try to call store who sells gemini card to have more information.

Just out of curiosity, tell me where do you live in US ? ( only state )

Interresting informations !!! :

6094: it's an accessoirie ( trackball).


Look this link :
http://www.compsyscon.com/7011250.html
Is it your monitor ?
Only 5 bnc connectors ?
6091 have 2 * 5 bnc (-> The POWERdisplay 17 and 20 do not offer video redrive or auxiliary power as did the 6091 displays)





The POWERdisplay 20 is a high-resolution graphics raster scan color display. The IBM POWERdisplay 20-inch monitor has an actual viewable screen size of 19.1 inches when measured diagonally. It is intended for high-resolution graphics applications and supports an Analog RGB and separate horizontal and vertical sync.

The POWERdisplay 20 provides sharp, bright, realistic colors with minimum distortion. It offers a premium high-contrast anti-reflective multi-layer bonded panel that results in strikingly clear images. It virtually eliminates static discharge from the front of the screen. The POWERdisplay 20 adheres to the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) display power management signaling (DPMS) process. This function allows the display to reduce power consumption to 10 watts when the workstation power is off, allowing it to meet requirements for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) "Energy Star" program. The POWERdisplay 20 meets ISO 9241 Part 3 recommendations for VDT ergonomics and also meets Very Low Frequency Magnetic Field (VLMF), Extremely Low Frequency Magnetic Field (ELMF), Very Low Electrical Field (VLEF), and Extremely Low Electrical Field (ELEF) emission standards. Operator controls for power, brightness, contrast, image tilt, horizontal and vertical static convergence, geometry, vertical and horizontal centering, and indicators are included in a front accessible panel. A tilt swivel base is standard. The display automatically synchronizes with various screen formats.

Voltage/Power Cord: No specify code is required to order the default 6-ft power cord option. High voltage (200-240V 50 Hz) and the appropriate power cord will automatically be supplied based on the 3-digit country code.

Note: The POWERdisplay 17 and 20 do not offer video redrive or auxiliary power as did the 6091 displays. The IBM POWERdisplay 17-inch monitor has an actual viewable screen size of 16.1 inches when measured diagonally. The IBM POWERdisplay 20-inch monitor has an actual viewable screen size of 19.1 inches when measured diagonally. There are several options with which to supply power to the 6093/6094 peripherals:

If a Micro Channel expansion slot is available in the RS/6000, please order the Graphics Input Device Adapter (FC 2810) and appropriate signal cables (FC 2811). The Dials and LPFK each need a signal cable. The 6094-030 is not supported on the Graphics Input Device Adapter.
Since the Graphics Input Device Adapter supplies power, no additional power supplies or auxiliary power cables are needed.

If a Micro Channel expansion slot is not available in the RS/6000, separate power supplies are needed. For the 6094-010 Dials and the 6094-020 LPFKs please order from the following feature codes (order one per peripheral):  # 4063 100 Volt Power Supply
 # 4064 120 Volt Power Supply
 # 4065 220/240 Volt Power Supply

For the 6094-030 Spaceball 3-D Input Device order the following specify codes:  # 9526 100 Volt Power Supply
 # 9527 120 Volt Power Supply
 # 9529 220/240 Volt Power Supply

If a Micro Channel expansion slot is not available, separate power supplies are not acceptable by the customer, and video redrive is needed, order the 6091-19i display (with a Trinitron CRT that has a fixed image size of 439mm (17.3 inches) measured diagonally).

Frache:
  I've been to the links above several times in the past week.
  The 6091 has a 14" 16" 17" 19" and 23" but not a 20" Your last comment down at the bottom where it says NOTE about the 6093/6094 thats where I think mine is the 6094.
  I live in Oregon.
  I'll accept your comments as the answer to my queston.
  I really appreciate the effort you've put into this matter. The monitor works really great.  have no problem with it. I was just really concerned about the pop or snap it would make when I would re-start my system whether it would hurt it or not.
  Not sure about 5 bnc. Out of the back of the monitor there is a red, blue,green,
black, and white connectors connected  to one connector that connects to my video port on my cpu.
  I'm am still confused what model. Not
6091 as 6091 did not make a 20" monitor.
  Keep in touch. I won't click the accept as answer till you also agree tha this mystry is solved. Do you agree?? More later.

-Agree with you : it's not a 6091. When i wrote in my last comment  "Power display 20' is a name like '6091',you must understand : 6091 is a model, Power display 20' is an another model.

-It's a POWER DYSPLAY 20", 1994 model, from RS6000 Unix workstation.
-> no "driver" for Win 9X or NT. Impossible to find. With all technicals informations ( graphics mode supported) , you can write a inf who describe your monitor
(like 9514 monitor).
example :
IBM_9514.AddReg]
HKR,"MODES\640,480",Mode1,,"31.0-38.0,60.0-75.0,+,+"
HKR,"MODES\800,600",Mode1,,"34.0-50.0,55.0-75.0,+,+"
HKR,"MODES\1024,768",Mode1,,"48.0-65.0,60.0-75.0,+,+"
HKR,,ICMProfile,0,"IBM_9514.icm"

Details : (for 9514)
640*480 :
horizontal sync : 31khz to 38khz
vertical sync   : 60 to 75 hz
+,+ : horizontal and vertical sync signals  positive.

800*600 :
horizontal sync : 34khz to 50khz
vertical sync   : 55 to 75 hz
+,+ : horizontal and vertical sync signals  positive.

etc...

ibm 9514.icm -> color profil ( for XX phosphor).



- You have 5 bnc :
-> red,green, blue : RGB video signals
-> black and white : horizontal and vertical sync signals.
Your monitor isn't plug and play : No wires for plug and signal. Win 9X can't identify monitor.



-"pop or snap" : electronic relay for high voltage, or winding noise. When you push the power button you monitor need an important current (20-30 Amp). After 1 second , only 2 Amps...
or another explain :
Automatic degauss when you turn "on" monitor.
-> Monitor control panel : button degauss. Push ... Same noise ?

 
-Good luck ...

   The snap I hear is when I shut down in Windows to restart the computer. I think you've covered the snap topic also. Degauss happens only when I turn monitor off and back on.
   I appreciate all the assistance you've given me on this matter.
   Best wishes to you.

Thanks AMD.

I like to help people and improve my English ... It's a good way ...

About this snap :
"The snap I hear is when I shut down in Windows to restart the computer"
-> When you shutdown Windows , screen resolution changes ( high resolution (1024*768 -> 640*480 low resolution ). You have a fixed frequency monitor. You heard this change (mecanical noise of relay).
