    Repurposing an Old Mac Monitor


    I recently received an old Mac monitor for free (photos included). I was wondering how I can connect it to my LG gram 15 laptop to use it as a second monitor. I tried plugging in the USB to my laptop but it didn't work. If anyone has any experience with these kinds of monitors or any leads let me know .

  2. Windows 10 refuses to boot without the old monitor.

    Hi,

    To address your issue with connecting a new monitor, please perform these steps:

    • Plug in the old monitor.
    • Uninstall the video driver, go to Device Manager > right-click on the video driver >
      Uninstall.
    • Unplug the old monitor, then connect the new one.
    • Turn on the computer, and Windows will attempt to reinstall the driver.
    Update us on the result.

    ok , right click on Windows start button and click " Device manage "

    Expand "monitor" and right-click on the monitor driver that doesn't work and do 'update driver'

    Click on " browse for drivers on your computer " and " Let met pick from a list of avaible drivers on my computer "

    Now select " Generic monitor " and NEXT.... Follow the steps.

    Overclocking / Undervolting guide for Vega 56 or 64?

    Here's a quick laundry list:

    List of software to use for overclocking and testing
    Examples:
    Wattman (and how to find and use it, like an overview, including profiles)
    Unigine Valley or Heaven (use this for quick testing while changing settings in Wattman and checking for stability / artifacts) ...just suggesting this
    How to monitor cores / mem speeds and temps during testing (I've seen screen overlays, and others using GPUz)

    Step-by step overclocking in Wattman
    Fan speeds
    Power limit
    Temp limit
    Voltages
    Core speeds
    Memory speeds
