Contura 3/20 broken display adjustment

Post by jbir » Wed, 22 Sep 2004 16:37:02

I have a Compaq Contura 3/20 laptop that has a broken display
adjustment. I can no longer adjust it's brightness. The display is
always light. I wish to use the laptop without hooking it to an
external monitor. How can I fix it?

1. [patch 20/20] 1394: fix for recently added firewire patch that breaks things on ppc

2. Samsung 20" LCD vs Apple Cinema 20" LCD display?

I'm planning to get an LCD to use with my G4 dual 1 GHz Mac.
I've priced two models:

Apple Cinema 20" display ($1299)
Samsung SyncMaster 213T Silver 21" display ($1199)

What are the pros and cons of each of these models? Are
there any compelling problems with using the Samsung? It
appears to have better brightness (250 cd/m^2 vs 230 cd/m^2)
and contrast ratio (500:1 vs 350:1), but lacks USB ports for
mouse, keyboard etc.

I'm not sure about frame rate or its LCD equivalent. Also
the connector for digital video. What should I learn about

Also, the Samsung display can be rotated from a landscape to
a portrait orientation. Does anyone know if or how this is
supported on a Macintosh? Is a driver for Mac OS X furnished
with this display?
