Sony Trinitron Multiscan Monitor

This is the monitor I bought when I left eSouk and which I use at home. Having finally got Windows Me installed on my PC (thanks Pete!) I faced the unexpected additional task of finding a driver for it so that the PC recognises it. Without that the monitor is of only minimal use. It “works” all right, in the sense that it displays information, but it is ony working at something like 16 colour lelvel (I’m stretching the current limits of my techieness here), which means that I can’t use the canon zoombrowser software to download digital photos from my Ixus. Very annoying, very frustrating.

Anyway, googling on “sony trinitron multiscan 200ES driver” brought me no joy, so I sought PeteSupport…..
