Great links, especially the first one, thanks Dan.

The machine is apart now.  No way to free the cables that I need to get
at without disassembling the whole thing.

Was wondering.  Will the machine boot with the monitor cables removed
from their jacks?  Could I possibly use an external monitor?

I'm aiming to solder the one (two?) broken wires back together, but am
not sure its all going to go back together, and or work when its done,
so was wondering if Plan 2 or 3 would be possible.

Plan 2, no monitor. Machine acts as server.

Plan 3, external monitor.

Thanks in advance,
