It's not obvious to me why that shouldn't be possible. Is there something special about an "Analog Goldstar monitor"?
Can your monitor be connected to your video card?

You can try looking for an adapter so that it can connect to your video card. If you can get the POST screen (Bios) to come up, then you get WinXP to work.

The other day I saw a refurbished 17" VGA CRT for only 30$.

Unless it is an especially bad monitor, you shouldn't have a problem. People were running 1024x768 at 16bits 10 years ago and that's what you need for XP.

yup, that what I thought initially, why XP wont run on Analog Monitor contrary to what my vendor told me, I think he wanted to screw me.

I changed to VGA mode in BIOS and its running perfectly with 32bit resolution(800X600). I think my monitor is quite old by age but quite young in the nature of output work :smile::smile:

Though most new monitors are digital, there are lots and lots of analog monitors out there and most video cards today still come with dvi to vga adapters.
