The battery is a known achillies heel for these boxes as well (a $20

I have a Multia, and I think that it works with most PC standard monitors. I
have found a sequence of events that leads to no video, though:

System flashed with the OpenVMS capable SRM
Battery dies ->

no video.

I haven't exhaustively tested fixes, but what I wound up having to do is:

Flash the standard Multia SRM
Put in a new battery (this can be done as step 1)
Re-flash the OpenVMS SRM.

Replacing the battery alone didn't seem to cut it.
