Interex serial adapter- dip switch settings for Apple G3
I have a GEM 17" monitor hooked up to an Apple Blue and White G3 using and Interex Serial adapter with 10 dip switches on it.
In a recent move to another dwelling, the dip switch settings were moved and the monitor will not work now. I need to know the switch settings for this adapter.
The 800 number on the switch no longer works. It is 800-513-9744.
One one side of the switch that plugs into the Mac is 1a 5 pin female in two rows. The other end of the adapter has 15 pin male in three rows (smaller end that the monitor cable connects to).Is there a way I can find out these settings?

It may sound strange but be absolutely sure the cable is plugged into the monitor. Adapter on the computer.
The serial adapter on the back looks just like video.
Video actually has a faintly noticeable monitor icon rigtht next to it.
Plugging into a serial can eventually blow out your monitor.
Also, a.badcable can do the same thing.
And if you have messed up the monitor's settings you will see the same
There should be two cables coming from your monitor -- one that hooks up to the computer and one that goes to the outlet, for power. The outlet cable looks almost like a normal power cable, with three prongs on one end and three holes on the other end.
The cable that hooks to your computer is likely a serial cable, with a blue connector that hooks up to the blue port on the back of your PC. Instead of the serial connector, you might have a DVI connector, which is skinnier and should have a removable white cap on it. If your computer has a DVI port, than you can use the DVI cable, otherwise you'll have to use the serial cable (with the blue connector).
hook up the ibook to a external monitor, via the monitor cable, if it comes up, you know its not your motherboard. There should be a monitor icon on your keyboard to switch from laptop monitor to external monitor, it could have been pressed by accident.
