  • AAAARGH!!! Datalux=death for my video card!

    I'm a tad bit frustrated... My Datalux monitor was working fine. All of the sudden, it dies on me. The controller card decided to take a dump. Ok, I ordered a new one from Jusatry... Installed it... No video. I plugged in my monitor. Uh oh, no video! So i thought it may be my video card. I plug in my 256 meg Radeon. Still nothing! Now neither of my video cards will work in a different system! Somehow the datalux killed a 64 meg and 256 meg radeon card. Needless to say, I'm a BIT disgruntled. Over $300 worth of dead equippment now-- including my 10.4 touchscreen. So what could have caused this? Do you think the datalux is salvagable? I've already hacked my dash for it... Any help would be much appreciated.
    Car: 1991 Camaro Z-28 5.0

    datalux needs a 5.5 instead of a 3.3V output from the video card to operate. perhaps that could be it?
