Hi there:

My 2 sons are budding geeks and got a Copam+ (NOT Compac - but Copam) computer at a garage sale for free. We see no place we can plug in our IBM monitor. I believe the computer might have been manufactured in Taiwan. Is it possible to need a different cable for our monitor.

Sorry, but I'm not too geekish (yet!)

Thanks a lot

If its a standard computer with standard connectors and a standard monitor with standard cables, any monitor made in the last 15 years should work on any computer made in the last 15 years.

Without knowing model numbers of the computer and the model number of the monitor, not a lot one can do to advise.

Copam computer's were used along with Plotters for doing design work in large scales(think Large business Street signs, t-shirt printing, Etc). I'm not certain but i think you will need a RS-232 Serial port type monitor with this computer. They really were not setup to be normal computers at all.
