We have a PowerMac 8600 here at work, and it's some type of VERY LARGE monitor connector that I have not seen before. It also has 2 video cards in it that have regular Mac style monitor connectors. I hooked a monitor up to one of the video cards, but I cannot get a signal. The machine sounds like it's booting just fine. Any way I can get this thing to boot and display off of any of the other video cards in the machine? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

First connect the monitor to the build-in connector.
Then try to reset the Parameter-Ram.
If there is no picture on the monitor, try to remove the two other video-cards.

In the moment i donīt know what type of VERY LARGE monitor connector you have in this machine .... maybe it is a pc-adapter card or something like that
