Thanks for the report. In fact, it's rather strange that your old 
monitor worked with this CD (but see below).

Once we figure out all details, I am going to add this to the README 
file on the CD.

That's much more precise, thanks.

Does your video card have DVI output? If so, is your new monitor 
connected to DVI or VGA output? What about the old one?
