Ok, I'm feeling a little better. I'm not touching any more hardware today.
Tomorrow I will install a CGA card into the machine (5160) and try
again. The industrial CGA is quite the looker .. it has a Plexiglass
shield covering the front, it is rather boxy in shape, and it has air
filters covering the intake vents on the bottom. The monitor also has a
fan .. I was quite surprised when I powered it up and heard the fan noise.
