The screen on my Ultra 1 (tgx-graphics) sorta died yesterday. It worked

I've yet to try another monitor on the computer or another machine on the
monitor. I'm looking for some clues to what might have happened.
Ultra 1 170, standard everyting
20" original Sun monitor.
Solaris 8 - standard everything.
