Can i manually place the files where they go? I did this, actually have one in system and other in system32. Should have my cable in a day or 2.

You can do whatever is in a batch (.bat) file manually at the command prompt.
Make sure when you move the files, that you do the regserv32 command to register it with windows.

Glad you guys are out there!
Thanks so much for your info regarding overly bright Sony Trinitron P1110 monitors. I replaced the resistor. The good news is the monitor is not nearly as bright. The bad news, maybe its not bright enough now. I am hoping I simply put in the wrong resistor. I didn't know what wattage so I went with a 1 Watt 5.1Mohm resistor. The resistor I pulled out of the monitor was much smaller is physical size. Does the wattage matter? How would you suggest getting some of my briteness back. My contrast is 100 and brightness is 100 --its not bad, but definitely could use a little brightening. Thanks for any suggestions.
Also, this is now the correct link to fantastic images and infor regarding replacing the resistor for us technically challenged folks:http://www.hutzelman.com/web/pages/hardware/Mods/SonyCRT/
My Sony GDM-F500R looks a lot better after reprogramming the brightness with WinDAS, but I think I could use a little more Contrast. How do I increase the contrast with WinDAS??
I have the same question about contrast
As far as the bus-line goes, make sure the cable is connected properly, and make sure your comm ports are configured (enabled) through the BIOS.
When the software crashes, re-launch and immediately go to the next step, in other words, don’t start from the beginning again.
Example: you launch program, select monitor, configure comm port, then go to save data, system crashes! Re-launch program and go directly to save data! It should work, provided the cable is communicating with the monitor. This is a known problem and fix
Don’t know what your cable configuration is: mine is:
TXD (Blk Wire)
RXD (GRN Wire)
VDC (+5) (Red Wire)
GND (Ylw Wire)
You also need to check the pin configuration on the monitor. Mine is:
Dell P991: From Back (cover) going to front (CRT):
TXD (Blk Wire) towards back cover
RXD (GRN Wire)
VDC (+5) (Red Wire)
GND (Ylw Wire) towards monitor screen
If the cable and connection is configured properly, check the bios again; if the comm ports are set to auto, switch to enabled or vice versa. I’m guessing you have two comm. Ports on that board so try both. If this doesn’t work, check the cable.
Cable is connected and com ports are active. Do i need to edit the com port configuration in windows at all or are the default settings ok?
I have tried both altering the monitor/com port settings(crash) and saving immeadiately (no connection)
The pin out i am using is what someone with an FW900 had mentioned earlier in the thread.
In the bios i have tried both fixed IRQ/address and auto settings for the com ports.
At this point i have tried only one com port; the other is on a bracket i have to fish out, but i will try that tonight. I will also take a look at the pin out on the monitor to see if it is incorrect, but no one stated it was wrong earlier.
I dont know what i did but its working now. Thanks for the suggestions guys i appreciate it.
Glad you got it working. Do let us know what you did, or think you did???
I am new to the forum after finding some interesting information to the same problem that I have.. a P1110 21" monitor that is too bright (brightness set at 0 and still too bright), and I also see diagonal grey lines on the screen all the time during activity.
