Well that normally means that the refresh rate is too high for the
monitor and the monitor is trying to sync to it, the clicking is the
sync relays flicking throu.

One thing you can do is to use a normal pc monitor and set it to
640x480 _at_ 60 hz and see if that works. If it does, slowly lift it up,
keeping the refresh rate _at_ 60 hz until you find ont that don?t work.

<Dave> Thanks, and here is the result. I did plug it in and it doesn't
work. Drats. Its makes a clicking noise, like when you are degausing a
monitor. Not a comforting sound. I guess I am going to have to find an
to test it to be sure if the monitor is bad or good. At least my
computer is
still ok. The screen I get is black, w/ no message at all. There is no
Siognal" message" that some monitors give, but the light is green on the
monitors button, like it is trying to work. Do you have any ideas?
