Following on from Steve's query about Proview monitors, there are several programs for testing monitors.

One of the best is monitors.exe and can be downloaded from:

http://venus.spaceports.com/~canada/webhq/download/

as monitors.zip
(There are other DOS utility test goodies on this site)


This is an early version 1.0 but works well. It is a DOS utility. (Windows based programs are a waste of time as its much better to test a monitor from a boot floppy, un-encumbered by Windows)

Included in this program are tests for:
color bars;
convergence;
linearity;
phase;
focus;
purity, white, red, green, blue;
high voltage stability; (this is the test bm mentioned in his reply to Steve).

The latest version 3.0 can be obtained (it costs) from Dynamic Learning Systems at:
