Compudyne fccid# gkrp766da, manufactured by compal electronics inc. in
taiwan.I have tried every driver sight known to god and man to try and find
a driver for this monitor. Have also e-mailed the company in taiwan and the
usa to try and get a driver. No luck. 6.1 will load in text mode with no

with 2 celeron processors overclocked to 523mhz,and 192meg ram. The
