LCD monitor on old PS1 computer

Post by mikeu » Wed Nov 11, 2009 5:12 am

Hi,

I have a friend who has an old IBM PS1 computer he uses for high speed morse code. He wondered if it's possible to replace the existing video monitor with an lcd monitor to save space. He doesn't want to change the computer.
I don't think this is possible but I thought I would throw it to the forum.
Is there an adapter or replacement video card, external circuit, etc. that would make this work?

Thanks,

Mike

If the old monitor is VGA, it should work with no modification however if the old monitor is CGA or EGA then he will need a new video card.
