HP 27xi, AOC i2757fh, or ViewSonic Monitor

Q: HP 27xi, AOC i2757fh, or ViewSonic Monitor

I'm stuck between these 3 monitors. The HP 27xi AOC i2757fh or the Viewsonic VX2770SMH-LED 27

They all look similar, but I'm just not sure which one to get. I'm leaning toward the HP 27xi though, but this site rated the AOC i2757fh a little higher over the HP 27xi. I'd like to hear some feedback from you guys.

My main usage is playing games like BF3/BF4, SWTOR and Titanfall when it comes out. I also do a lot of web surfing and occasional movie watcher on this monitor. My current monitor is a 24 inch Asus VW246H and I like it, but I don't love it. So my main concern is how well it displays games. I don't want any ghosting and the least amount of input lag I can find. Now, I know the AOC boasts a slightly quicker response time of 5ms vs the HP's 7 seconds, but the reviews I've read thus far state there is no visual lag from the HP. What do you guys suggest? Thanks in advance!

Hello everyone. First post on here.

So I got an AOC i2757fh monitor with 2 hdmi ports. So I have my computer on one and my xbox one on the other. Then I got a pair of Logitech z506 speakers since the speakers on the monitor aren't that good.

So I have the green audio cable plugged in the back of the monitor to the box. And the speakers at times have static coming out of them while playing something. Or when I watched a movie on my xbox one, you could hear the static in their voices.

I read to connect it to a ipod or something like that to see if it would play fine and that it wasn't a cord issue. So I gave that a shot and it worked fine. So is there something like an equalizer or something I can get to without plugging them into my computer? Or another way to stop it from having static coming out while it is playing something? I already check the monitor's menu to see if there was something in there and there wasn't.

If you need any more info, just comment and I will give you an answer. Any help is greatly appreciated!

A:Logitech z506 speakers into an AOC i2757fh monitor

Do you get the noise with the built in speakers? As the monitor is apparently converting the audio, the built in speakers are OK then the problem is internal in the monitor, not the PC.

BTW, when you use HDMI, the HDMI audio is generated in the Video card, not the PC's sound chip.

Hi, How does one go about getting schematics for the HP 27xi monitor? Need to repair three control boards that have issues with the LED backlight driver circuitry. Please direct me to the correct board if this isn't it. Thanks!

A:Schematics for HP 27xi monitor

eldata Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!I seriously doubt you will be able to get the information you want.  HP is not going to release schematics of their proprietary hardware to the general public; to get that information, you would have to be an HP Service Center, which (since you are asking US for that information), you apparently are not. You could try contacting HP Customer Support directly to see if they will help -- but I doubt they will:  If you live in the US or Canada, contact information is on this page: you live elsewhere, contact information is on this page: After you get through, stay on the line until you are finally able to talk to some one -- it can take a while!If you have trouble finding a phone number, then try: 1 (800) 474-6836

My Win7 64-bit Lenovo Laptop has 2 Paviion 27xi montors connected via DVI.  The primary monitor will go to sleep after my defined 15 minutes BUT it will wakeup every 30 seconds and flash the monitor's "Going to sleep" message.  The 2nd monitor stays a asleep until keyboard or mouse activity really wakes the system up.  I have applied the latest driver version 2.0 released in 02/2014 and the monitor's perpetual "going to sleep" message continues to flash on screen every 30 seconds.  Please advise if you have a solution.  I want and need the monitors to go to sleep automatically after 15 minutes and stay asleep.  So suggesting that I disable the monitor sleep function is not a viable solution.  I feel it is a bug in HP's driver, but who knows, there may be a setting that can solve this too.  (My previous dual DVI Dell monitors behaved nicely and did not perptually wake up the primary monitor like the HP's are exhibiting.)

A:Pavilion 27xi Dual Monitor Sleep Issue

Hello szynda, Welcome to the HP Forums, I hope you enjoy your experience! To help you get the most out of the HP Forums I would like to direct your attention to the HP Forums Guide First Time Here? Learn How to Post and More.I understand that you have 2 HP Pavilion 27xi Monitors and one of them (the primary) is waking up every 30 seconds and you believe it is a driver issue. This is easily verified simply switch your inputs make the secondary the primary and vise versa, if the issue persists over to the secondary monitor it is a driver if it does not then it is hardware. If it is the driver I would suggest you try reinstalling the driver from the HP My Display driver page for the HP Pavilion 27xi 27-inch Diagonal IPS LED Backlit Monitor. If is not the driver, but the monitor itself I think it would be best if you contacted HP technical support for repair options.US support link to contact options for HP products purchased in the US.Outside of US support link to contact options for HP products purchased outside the US.I would like to thank you for posting on the HP Forums.

Greetings all,

My ViewSonic VX2450wm-LED monitor is recognized as Generic Non-PnP Monitor. I even downloaded and attempted to install Viewsonic's "Standard_Monitor_Driver_Signed_Win7_x64". It times out at the end of installation and requests I download "Standard_Monitor_Driver_Signed" from Viewsonic website.

My display view is set at max res of 1600x1200. I am running Win7-Ultimate 64bit.

Is there any other way to get Win 7-Ultimate 64bit to recognize the monitor as VX? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am using an NVIDIA GeForce 9300M GS 256MB card.

Thank you

A:ViewSonic VX2450wm-LED monitor is a Generic Non-PnP Monitor

If you need to know, here is how I fixed it.
First install ViewSonic's "Standard_Monitor_Driver_Signed_Win7_x64"
Go to Device Manager
Select Monitor drop down tab
Select Generic PnP Monitor
Right-Click on Generic PnP Monitor
Select option "Update Driver Software"
Select "Browse my computer for driver software"
Select "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer"
Select from the models listed: Generic PnP Monitor
Select option "Have Disk..."
Select "Browse..."
Navigate to where the ViewSonic monitor drivers are stored
Example: C:\ViewSonic
Select monitor driver
Example: VX2450_SERIES
Click "Open"
Click "OK"
Select from the pop up window:
ViewSonic on the left and ViewSonic VX2450 Series on the right
Click "Finish"

Finally, you will receive the message: Windows has successfully updated your driver software.

I run XP on a new box and a fairly new 19" (year old) View Sonic LCD monitor. The monitor worked as advertised on my old PC but when attached to my new one I frequently get a flashing green power indicator light and will get no picture.

This happens 100% of the time if I cold start the PC and I have to screw around with the restart button and on/off power button to get it to come back to life and in truth I do not know which combination of button pushing gets it to come back. I now use the power saver mode because that seems to be the most consistent way of bringing the monitor back to life but even that didn't work this am.

ViewSonic's web site wasn't much help.

I'm trying to decide between the G90FB 19" or the P95F+B...
Here are the links:

The only real difference between the 2 is the fact the Professional one (P95F+B) has an aperture grille while the Gaming (G90FB) has a shadow mask

I know the shadow mask uses dots (dot pitch) while the aperture grille uses lines instead of dots...

Which monitor will give me the best picture for gaming and crisp clear text.

A:Which is the better Viewsonic monitor?

If you can afford it I'd get the Professional version. I had Philips 107P (Professional) monitor with a .25 Aperture grille and it was the best monitor as far as picture quality/clairity I've ever seen (I'm sure there are better, but not without paying major money).

I have a Viewsonic VA721 monitor that I was using up until earlier today when the monitor started acting like a scrambled cable tv channel when turned on.

I was wondering if anyone might happen to know as to what might cause that, what the technical term for it might be and as to whether or not it can be fixed.

Up until today I have never had any problems with the monitor. Every time I would walk away from the computer for a while I would shut the monitor off so that I could avoid any burn in problems with it thereby preserving the life of the monitor. Because of that I have never had any problems with it until today and at the moment I do not know what could be causing the problem.

I tried the monitor on two different computers with two different cables and got the same result. I bought the monitor in 2006 brand new and up until today it has served me faithfully without any problems.

I don't know if it can be fixed or even if it is worth it nor do I know if it is something that I can fix myself or if I would have to have someone else fix it.

What I do know is if there is anything that I can do to fix the problem myself and restore it to active service then I might choose to give it a try.

Until I have more answers though I cannot make an informed decision about any of it and that is why I am asking.

I am hoping that there will be someone here that will know about such things and can give me some straight advice and information about the monitor and the pro... Read more

A web page with lots of pictures or the desktop and screen saver are the worst.

Hi and welcome to TSG.

Do you happen to know if you are operating the monitor at or beyond its normal operating range for resolution and refresh rates?

Do you get a stable image if you start Windows with a lower resolution in Safe mode?

In the future, it would help us to help you if you give more details like the model number of the monitor and how it is connected to the computer. The TSG reporting utility program does not produce an exhaustive and detailed report about all of the hardware related to your computer.

It sounds like the vertical deflection is gone. Try the monitor on a different computer or a different monitor on yours to see where the problem is. If the monitor is bad its better to bury a new one than to pay to have it repaired. New monitors are pretty cheap now.

I have a ViewSonic 19" CRT monitor (bought new in '99) connected to a PC that runs Win XP SP2, 512 MB RAM, Matrox Millenium AGP card.

The system ran fine until I moved it (carefully) to another room. The CPU boots but the monitor does not give any video. I get a black screen with a repetetive blue area that indicates no signal. The specific line entry is "No Synch". I think I may have seen this in the past, when the monitor was powered on but the CPU was shut off. I can't be certain it's the exact same condition.

I switched cables and tried a different video card but no luck. I don't have another monitor other than my laptop. I think I can hook it up to act as a monitor but not certain. Can't afford to crash the laptop.

I just replaced a 1280x1024 Viewsonic monitor, that had gone bad, with another one (Viewsonic VA708).

Though I've never really been one to pay "hard hard" attention to how things look on a monitor - never felt a problem with anything - something just looks/feels "off" with this one.

This is most noticeable to me on the titles appearing on the browser tabs in Firefox. They just look "wrong" - watery maybe to my eye.

BUT... I have attached a screenshot comparing a blowup of a browser tab from my work computer Dell 1280x1024 monitor (top) and my new Viewsonic monitor (bottom), blown up to 1000 px wide (I cropped), and in the blowup, I can't tell the difference.

So why might I be perceiving things differently with this new monitor?

FWIW, I did update the driver from the Viewsonic site, and I also played with both the monitor's and the control panel's display adjustments.

My 2nd attempt to get some help off the forums

A few days ago, I tried loading up Warcraft 3, a game, and the screen went black, with the light flashing on and off. If I alt tabbed out of WC3 the screen turned back on. The problem persisted after a restarted, so I left it for a while. A few hours later I tried and W3 worked fine, no problems.

However today I turn on my PC and after a few seconds during the boot up, the screen goes blank with the flashing on and off light again. I restart it and it goes blank even faster.
After a while on the forums (on my GFs laptop) I try pressing F8 before the screen goes blank, and then press ESC for the 'default' Boot option. It goes on to boot up normally, with screen errors. I test out warcraft 3, (since when I first saw this it was whilst starting up this program) and it works fine, and goes on to do so for a few hours, till I turn the screen off and on to see if the problem is permanently fixed. It hasn't, the screen goes black.
Upon restarting my PC I get the same error as before, Pressing F8 and Esc doesn't fix it anymore. However now after pressing Esc I get to the screen where they ask me if I would like to Boot up in Safe mode. I do so and it loads up in safe mode fine.
Later on I try again to get it to load in normal mode, it does first time. Then upon loading Warcraft 3 again, the screen goes black again, with the flashing light. Again rebooting results in the same black screen a few seconds into loading... Read more

Hello guys,

So one night when I left my computer on, i wake up at 3AM on a rainy night and i notice my entire room flashing (like from a tv in dark room). I thought I was having a rolling blackout, but as I got to my senses I noticed that my monitor was the only thing turning off and on. I turned it off, and went to sleep. The next morning I went to go turn on my computer and the monitor does the same thing. It turns (about a one to two second delay between each) until I turn the monitor off. The LED light is green. It goes from green, to off, to green, etc. I've had no prior problems with this monitor.

I tried switching out the power cord and plugging it into my wall (not connected to my video card, or anything) luck. It's definately the monitor. I don't know if it's dead or repairable or what. I often leave the computer on over night but i have a 10 minute screensaver and my monitor goes on standby after 20 minutes. When i fell asleep, my monitor was on standby (yellow LED). When I woke up it was the green turning on and off. Doesn't make much sense.

Just upgraded to Win7 64bit. My trusty old monitor has no sound (the picture is fine) I found a driver for a generic Viewsonic x64 driver, but that didn't solve the problem. I read a suggestion somewhere to uninstall the driver and let Windows find it. That didn't solve the problem either. I tested the monitor with my old (XP) system, in case the monitor developed a sudden fault, but there is still sound when I plug it back in there.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. I really don't fancy having to buy a new monitor too, after having had to replace my printer and scanner

What does the monitor require? Older monitors, that use VGA or DVI usually have a Jack to connect from the PC's Speaker out (GREEN) to the monitor for sound. No driver is required for that. There is no audio in a VGA or DVI connection, just video.

Hi Guys, I have no idea whats going on over at Viewsonic, however their support service is lacking some serious SUPPORT!!! Just the other day, I re-installed Vista 64 and had been happily using a x64 monitor driver for my VX2025WM, just before the re-install I decided to trall the net for latest drivers and deleted any old ones I had (stupid I know). Anyway on re-install with the latest unsigned driver - Standard_Monitor_Driver_Unsigned_Windows_x64 - Dated 04/10/2007, it is now telling me it cannot find my monitor. I've also tried the latest signed driver and this is not working either. I have tried a manual install from C:\Viewsonic and funny enough the monitor isn't even listed. I've asked Viewsonic for help with them replying asking me to download the latest unsigned driver (what the???) All I need is a copy of the previous unsigned driver to this one listed and I know 101% it will find my monitor and work, does anyone have it or know where I can find archived drivers, as Viewsonic have not responded to this request.

My monitor seems to be experiencing some kind of problem.

The best way I can describe it is as a 'widescreen' mode. There is a black bar on the top and bottom of the desktop about 1 inch wide and extending across the entire length of the screen. I cannot move the mouse into this portion of the screen.

When adjusting the horizontal and vertical settings, 100% stops with the 1 inch black bars still in place. I cannot seem to make the desktop fit the screen. It seems to have shifted into some other mode of viewing.

I called Viewsonic tech support, but they didn't really know much else to do besides checking my settings. I am at 1024 x 768 resoloution, Radeon 8500 64MB graphics card, Windows XP and have installed the most recent drivers. Even when booting - the black bars are present, as if the monitor has somehow decided that is the mode it wants to be in.

If anyone has come across something like this before or knows how I might be able to fix it, I'd be MUCH obliged!

I have recently changed my hard drive and had to reinstall all the programs on my computer. Since doing so, the Viewsonic monitor has been stuck in troubleshooting mode.

What do I do to get a better resolution with this monitor. It worked fine until the hard drive was changed.

I have downloaded the driver for the monitor from the net which was unsuccessful.

I tried changing the adapter from standard to SVGA as recommended by windows, which was rejected by the computer and I had to change it back.

Windows is not accepting the driver that I downloaded.

I just bought a new 19" A90F+ ViewSonic Monitor (not flat panel LCD) and everything went great for my 1st week. After this when I would move my mouse to take it off standby my perportions were off and the I could only see half the taskbar...I guess it change the display areas automatically. Also I have noticed some of the edges kinda slant in or curve at the edges some. It's so frustration because the bottom seems to be fine and the top corners can be half there. What's a joe to do?

PS: I Havne't even touched the OSD settings on the monitor itself...

I need help in making my mind up between the gorgeous Lg 1981Q and the attractive Viewsonic Vx924.

I have recently upgraded my desktop and am thinking about shifting to dual screen, mainly for video and web editing (with a little bit of gaming on the side) and need help in picking out new monitor.

one of my problems is that the looks of the tft is very important to me, cos i cant look at something ugly all the time, i would like a tft which is slim and very sexy (just how i like my women )

If anybody owns either of these screens i would really appreciate their feedback, on how good the monitor is and if they would recommend it.



P.s is there really that much noticable difference between 4 and 8 ms, and if so is it going to be noticable when video editing and gaming.

Never mind, as quick as the problem began, it's resolved itself for some reason. Post can be deleted.

I'm having a bit of a strange issue with my ViewSonic VX2258 monitor.
Out of nowhere, the screen started to flicker (not the sort of flickering you might expect from a loose cable, but literally going completely off and back on) every few seconds. Eventually the screen did not come back on at all.
Thinking there was a loose cable, I tried tightening them but to no avail. The light on the monitor is still blue showing that it is detecting an input and Windows still detects that the monitor is plugged in.
When I turn the monitor off and on, I can see the ViewSonic logo, but oddly enough after that it is a black screen and I am unable to get any system menus to appear (the ones that are generated by the monitor itself, not the PC) or change the source. I would have thought that because of this, there is something wrong with the display but that doesn't seem to be the case considering I can see the logo upon starting the monitor. (Perhaps something to do with firmware?)
I don't think that it is a problem with my GPU as my secondary monitor (a Samsung SyncMaster) still seems to be functioning perfectly but just in case, it is a Powercolor Radeon R9 290X and my drivers are all up to date.
Thanks for the help!

Title says it all really, just put a scratch in my 3 week old monitor , mildly annoyed about it and wondering whether theres any way to make it go away. When I run my finger over it it dusn't feel like a scratch, but with the monitor off, or showing a bright white screen its quite evident, and running fingernail over it i can tell its an indentation. Against bright white it looks almost like the effect seen if theres water on your monitor (rainbowy), if that helps at all. Basically i'd just like to be not able to see it, and was wondering if you had any suggestions?

hi all - ive got a problem with my new viewsonic vx2753mh-led monitor. its got 2x hdmi inputs and one vga.

the vga works straight off the bat, but whenever I try and plug the hdmi in it just says no input signal detected and goes black

I noticed in device manager that this was installed as 'generic non-pnp monitor' so after jumping through some hoops i managed to install the driver as 'viewsonic vx2753 SERIES'
Anyway this doesnt seem to have made a difference. still no input through the hdmi.

I have tested to cord on my samsung tv and it worked fine so it can't be a problem with the cord or the graphics card....

just some general info that might be of use:
windows 7 x64
dual monitor setup

the graphics is integrated on the intel i5 chip
my display adapters in device manager says Intel(R) HD Graphics Family.
it has a dvi out, hdmi out, and vga out.

thanks for any help you can give!

A:Viewsonic LCD monitor not recognizing HDMI input signal.

I have a Viewsonic which I'm also trying to run a media PC to connected via an HDMI cable, and I have noticed the exact same thing.

It was working fine for awhile, but recently I have been receiving an error on screen saying the "HDMI to DVI cable as experienced an error" or something to that effect. Note: I am using strictly an HDMI cable, not an HDMI to DVI as the message states (can't explain why I'm getting that message). I did the same thing you did, tested the machine using the same cable on another tv, and it worked fine on the other tv. What's strange is I can connect the cable box to the tv using the identical HDMI cable and it worked fine. Tried again using the same cable from the PC to the tv, and either 1) blank screen, or 2) shrunken screen with the aforementioned error which will go blank once I open Media Center.

Sorry, I don't have an answer, but it seems to me Viewsonic hasn't made a good product in terms of connecting media PC's, for some reason. Of course, my tv is out of warranty at this point. If you find an answer, keep me posted, I'll do the same.

KChristians, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Sounds like you have WU set to automatically download and install updates, and it updated either the video or monitor driver. If that is what happened check your update history and you can uninstall it from there and should get you back to the previous drive.

Also if that s what it was you might want to set WU to not download and install drivers automatically, step #4 here,

Dear All Experts,

Hello! How are you all doing? Well today, I came across this Viewsonic LCD Monitor which looks quiet appealing and of course, being manufactured by the leading display technology company of the world  Viewsonic! Heres the link to the product:

Viewsonic VX2433wm (24inch HD LCD Monitor)

Now here's what I need to know:

My main use of an LCD Monitor will be to:

* Watch Movies (Which should include a DVD & High Definition (HD) Quality Videos).
* Play 3D and Normal Games.
* Movies like Jurassic Park, Speed, Titanic, Action Movies, etc...
* Web browsing, doing back work on PC, Listening to music.

So, this in short will be the purpose of using a new LCD Monitor. So far, I am using CRT Monitor.

Once you have gone through the above link, could you kindly let me know how well would this Viewsonic LCD Monitor fair in terms of my above mentioned usage.

BUT NOW HERE's A TwIsT >>> While looking forward to buy an LCD Monitor, one question that kills my decision of buying it is that What if a Touch Screen LCD Monitor will be made available once Windows 7 releases to users.

Hi there, I recently received this monitor as a replacement for a DOA monitor that I purchased a few weeks back. All was great for the first few days until the monitor unexpected went black while I was using it. The power button still glowed white, but the screen was showing nothing (no backlight either) and the power button become unresponsive. The only solution has been to unplug the power supply and replug it back it. The problem with this is two fold:1) it happened in the first place2) it continues to occur. However, whereas it seemed to only do it ever day, it now will shut off and become unresponsive after only 5 minutes of use and will continue to shut off within those 5 or fewer minutes even after the power supply has been unplugged and replugged. I don't think it is an issue with the computer or drivers because it happens to both my PC, and two of my Macbook Pros (late 2010 and late 2013). Nor do I believe it an issue with the cords, as it happens to both the VGA and HDMI port.  - It is a HP Pavilion 27xi 27 inch- IPS LED backlit MonitorProduct number: C4D27AAManufactured: December 2012 (which is a little frustrating seeing as in how the one I sent back to be replaced with this one was made in May 2015)

Hi there @rcollins218?Welcome to the HP Support Forums! It is a great place to find the help you need, both from other users, HP experts and other support personnel. I understand that you purchased a new monitor and it was DOA, and that your replacement is becoming unresponsive after about 5 minutes or so of use. I am happy to help you with this. I thank you for the detail you have included in your post about the testing you have tried with multiple interfaces and computers, To me the fact that there is no change at all, between any of them suggests a hardware fault, and that is equally frustrating as you had a DOA monitor in the first place.  If you haven't already, I would suggest you try looking at this document, and try the factory reset.HP and Compaq Flat Panel Displays - Display Quality Issues Press the Auto or Autoselect button on the monitor.Press Menu, and select Factory Reset.If the monitor has more than one type of connection available such as VGA, DVI, or HDMI, try a different type of connection.If the problem remains, then it is most likely a hardware issue. In that case I would recommend contacting phone support, and let the person know the details of your situation, including your original purchase date.  Please use the following and create a case for your issue and contact HP.

A:HP Pavilion 27xi keeps turning black

Of course, I too am having problems with my "HP Pavilion 27xi IPS LED Backlit Monitor". The screen going black for about two minutes and comes back for about 15 minutes. I used a different monitor and it worked fine. A new power brick didn't stop the "cut to black" problem either. All the power/hibernate/sleep functions are set to never. The power light goes out and won't come back on until the screen comes back. This leads me to believe the problem is in the monitor. I also believe it is related to the power section but not the power brick. When it is up, there is nothing to idicate that there is a problem.

I just got the HP Pavilion 27xi IPS LED Backlit Monitor at work, working on a computer running Windows 10. I'm pretty tech-saavy, but I cannot figure out how to adjust the brightness! I've tried the F9/F10 function; doesn't work. I then thought it might be an issue with the driver, so I went to Settings -> Displays -> Advanced Display Settings -> Display Adaptor Properties -> Monitor (tab) -> Properties -> Driver (tab) -> Update Driver but got the "The best driver software for your device is already installed" message. Under the Settings -> Displays screen, there's no option for adapting the brightness and I've scoured the forums, but none of the solutions presented are working. Should I manually install an older version of the driver software? Any other potential solutions?

I've had this monitor for about a year.  It is currently connected to a Lenovo laptop through a docking station.  It was previously connected to a Dell laptop through a different docking station, and this problem has occurred with both computers / docking station combinations. At random, the screen will go black.  When this happens, the on / off button stays illimuninated with the same color as it is when the screen is on.  This could happen multiple times in as few as 10 minutes, or not at all throughout an entire day.  When it is occurring frequently, I have opened the laptop to see if its screen is doing the same thing, but it is not.   Another thing that happens less frequently, but may or may not be related is the display will skew slightly.  This also occurs randomly. Other than this problem, it is a great monitor.  Does anyone know why this may be happening and how I can correct / get it corrected?

I've downloaded and gone through the Device Manager install of the Vista signed and unsigned drivers from Viewsonic. Choose the vx2835wm as the monitor and... "file not found". Viewsonic support sends me to a link that says "no drivers available" and then says to download their Vista 64 package I've been doing since day 1. (been doing this and all suggestions since Nov 2007)

Vista Ult. 64 uses its default non-pnp drivers where I have my 1920x1200 native res. with everything but gaming (the reason for purchasing this monitor). I can't get anything higher than 1600x1200 (in gaming) and well, its fuzzy. Can't use windowed mode, OS drivers stop functioning and reload frequently. I've set the res. in the nVidia panel to 1920x1200, set the game ini file to 1900x1200 but it still will only work at 1600x1200 although the games support the higher resolutions.

Is there anyone here that uses this monitor that has found Vista 64 drivers that work? If not, is there a 28", or even 30, that has Vista 64 drivers that will work at native resolution with any program or game?

I am ready to sail this monitor out the third floor window and buy another if I can't get a solution for fixing this one so need recommendations on other monitors as well.

A:Viewsonic vx2835wm

Dwarf I don't see your reply here although I did get an email that you posted.

The following link is to the signed standard Viewsonic monitor driver for Vista 64-bit. This driver should be installed with administrative privileges. For games, you might need to adjust your settings such as anti-aliasing in order to be able to use this resolution. The higher certain settings are, the lower the maximum resolution that is available. This is just a matter of trial and error, bearing in mind that higher resolutions require more working RAM on the graphics card and also a card of sufficient power to yield a decent frame rate at these settings.

I did download those many times each time it was updated by Viewsonic. It goes through the device manager wizard fine and then 'file not found'. However, someone did message and email me their driver folder from the monitor cd and it worked. Apparently my cd was a bad one. So all is well and working. Games are working great with the right resolution now.

I've heard nothing but good things about BenQ, and I already know the excellent reputation of Viewsonic. I do alot of gaming so that's an important factor. I know CRT has better visual quality than LCD, but I need to conserve space, so any input on these 2 monitors would be appreciated.

A:viewsonic LCD is not working with window 7

Hi FairCold and welcome to Windows 7 Forums

Since your LCD monitor is working when you boot into safe mode, that eliminates hardware. It is probably a driver issue or, more likely since your CRT works, a settings issue. What refresh rate have you got it set at? There is generally no need to drive an LCD monitor at a higher rate than 60Hz. A CRT, on the other hand, can work upto 150Hz (depending on model and resolution). If your refresh rate is other than 60Hz, try setting it to that frequency and see what happens.

Just purchased a new Viewsonic VA720 17" flat screen & had problems installing same. Took it to technician, paid $60, got it home and plugged it in. Nothing - no screen image and a complete lockup; had to unplug unit from wall to shut down.

Started it with WIN98 emergency disc and it went directly to the BIOS setup with following statement (in red). During the last boot up your system hung up for an improper CPU external speed setting. Your system is now working in safe mode. (Bus: 100MHz, DAM: 100 , PCI: 33 MHz). To optimize the system performance & reliability make sure the CPU speed conforms to the specification of your CPU.

Had previously copied all BIOS data (thank g-d) so went over it & found the tech had turned off the Plug & Play O/S. I turned it back on and the screen showed up immediately with no further problems to date. Called the tech and he claims they always turn off the plug & play as they found it interferes with system operation. Is this true?

Also I still wonder how to optimize the system by making sure the CPU conforms to the specification of the CPU. Any help and/or information on this matter would be greatly appreciated

I think you will get arguements either way on using plug and play os or not.
I have always used it without a problem and so my feeling is if your going to run a plug and play operating system why disable it.

I have a custom build system that has performed flawlessly since I built it about 15 months ago. I just purchased from Costco, a ViewSonic VA2012wb LCD and it is able to do everything (MSOffice, Internet, etc.) except run my games (Call of Duty, Medal of Honor, etc). Call of Duty upon launch, causes a black screen with 'out of range' complete with system hang - requiring reboot. MOHAA attempts to launch, but fails with the message 'GLW_StartOpenGL() - could not load OpenGL subsystem'. All ran fine with my old 17" CRT.
My config is:
Custom Build - P4 3.00GHz PC3200 DDR-1.0GB RAM XP Pro SP2
128MB ATI All-in-Wonder 9600
ViewSonic VA2012wb LCD (used in analog mode) 1680x1050 60Hz(defaults)
HP CD-Writer+ 9100 / SONY DRU 720A DVD RW
DirectX 9.0
I have looked for updates and patches to address the errors at the sites of ATI, ViewSonic, and Windows Updates, with no relief.
I hope someone is familiar with this and can offer a hand.
Thanks - LB

Hello I recently recieved a a90f CRT 19inch viewsonic monitor

When I plug it in and connect to pc, the yellow power light turns on. When I turn on the pc the yellow light turns to green as normal, but the screen stays black.

I have tried it on as low as 800x600 resolution and on 2 different PC's. Video card ATI radeon 128mb 9800 pro.

Is this a defective monitor? and is it able to be fixed? Or is is most likely a tube problem, or am I missing something in my ignorance. Any help would be appreciated.

A:Viewsonic a90f problem ?

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

The fact that you`ve tried the monitor on two different pc`s, would suggest to me that the monitor is faulty.

I've got a Viewsonic P95f+ monitor.

19" CRT

I keep the brightness at medium level, but it regularly goes darker (Grey/washed out) and it gets harder to read the print (Seems blurry). I haven't nailed down a pattern, but I'd say every 15-20 minutes or so. It lasts 1-10 minutes, then goes back to my regular brightness.

The monitor is probably 5-7 years old, but I've had no problems until now. I recently put in a new power supply and graphics card in my PC, but I can't say if this started before or after those changes.

Could this be a problem with a driver/the graphics card/power supply, or is it just time to get a new monitor? Any tips on how to diagnose?

Sounds like you will need a new monitor. Since it is happening fairly often hook it up to another computer and see if the same thing happens.

This monitor came with a DMI cable and the usual VGA cable. I ordered and installed an nvision 6200 card and I installed the latest drivers for the card and disabled the onboard video on the motherboard. Question: I attached the DMI and VGA cables onto the Video card but I not sure that this hookup is correct. Should the VGA cable be attached direct;y to the tower or is my present hookup just as good. Picture quality is good but it 'may be' better if the VGA is hooked to the tower. As usual, TIA.

EDIT: Just thought my question and I believed my present hookup is the only way for me to go. Why? Because I disabled the onboard video, hooking the VGA cable to the tower would not do anything for me.

I have a 15" Viewsonic VA520 LCD monitor that is having some problems.

The monitor has a a built in "auto adjust" and at the moment all of a sudden it keep auto adjusting over and over again. I cant shut my monitor off unless i turn the power cord off and when i do the same problem occurs over again.

Ive unplugged the monitor, then plugged it back in, unplugged all the computer wires and then replugged, done a virus check but it is still like this.

There are 4 buttons on the bottom of the monitor

if i click the 3rd button (the up selection button) and hold it the "adjusting" goes away but the minute i let go it reappears. I hold that button and then hit power the monitor shuts off but not normally.

So i guess my question is how to i make this auto adjust go away other than to take it to a dealer and get it fixed. Im wondering if there are other options.

My monitor is 1.5 years old and has been working perfectly. (I take very good care of my monitor!) Yesterday, with no warning, the screen slightly dimmed and then went black. The "on-off" switch flickered. I tried disconnecting it from my CPU and unplugging it from the electrical source and I tried re-booting my computer. None of this made any difference. I have a new video card but connected the monitor to another computer just in case the new card was bad. Again, no results. I hate to think that a 1.5 year old monitor needs to be replaced. Any suggestions? Thanks!

A:Viewsonic VX910 problem...

Does it even go to standby mode ? If you simply connect the monitor to a power socket & not to a computer, when you turn it on it should go into standby mode. If it doesn't even do that then it is your monitor that's at fault (& probably needs to be sent in for repair).

Hi Everyone,

This is my first post here so I hope someone here can help me. I'll lay down my situation, and then I pray someone has an answer for me. Ok, here goes:

I have a ViewSonic 32" LCD T.V./Monitor ((Link: )) Just in case you want to see it.

But anyway, the problem with this monitor is this. Over the past month or two, my monitor began flickering. Over time its gotten worse and worse, and now the screen becomes garbled on the right half of the screen and sometimes it completely blanks out...almost as if the screen is melting. I've tried everything...the first of which was buying new cables. I bought a new monitor cable from my work...but yet the problem persisted. I bought a new graphics card ((ATI Radeon x1650 Pro 512MB card)), installed it...but it was still garbled. Recently I tried hooking a new desktop up to it...and still the monitor was garbled. So I narrowed it down... it has to be something with the monitor. But before any other conclusions are thought up, I also have a Xbox 360 plugged into the monitor that runs screen flickering or garbling present at all. So, the problem must be in the monitor cable adapter/hook-up thing located on the back of the T.V. Before I fight over the manufacturers about fixing my monitor...does anyone know anything else I can attempt to try and fix this thing?

Thanks for any reply....this thing has been a pain....
P.S. I'm go... Read more

Check the refresh rate of your monitor and be sure you are not driving it faster than it was designed to be driven. Also, be sure you are not attempting to use resolutions higher than the monitor was designed for.

I have used it for two years and it worked really fine. However, in the recent 1 month, it started to automatically activate the "Auto Image Adjust" function (this function should have activated by pressing the button on the monitor or by sudden change in the monitor's resolution). It happen randomly so that it's hard for me to identify the causes.

I have tried to reinstalled the Graphic Driver, set the Hz to 60Hz, resolution exactly to 1280*1024. It's no luck ! I also checked the case with other LCD computer, it work fine so the problem is not from the case (I mean the output).

If any one has solved this problem before, please try to help me. I hope that nothing wrong with the hardware of the monitor.

A:Viewsonic VG191 Startup Problems

If you test it on another computer and find that it is in fact the monitor, very likely it is and not the PC, then you can take the monitor in for repair. Some places offer free quotes, others don't. If its really cheap to fix then do it, if not then you'll need to live with it or buy a new one.

You can have new 19" LCD's with full warranties for $299.99 and sometimes even less.

Hey guys,
I brought my desktop back from school, but I didn't want to worry about transporting the monitor, so I'm borrowing my dad's Viewsonic VX2433wm. At school, I use a Samsung 2343BWX along with a Dell 20" 1680x1050 monitor (unfortunately, I don't know the model). However, my computer seems to act up with it connected.

The most obvious thing is that the text is kind of blurry. I tried adjusting ClearType, but that didn't seem to help. Pictures/color seem to look okay though, and most games look/perform the way they should. I made sure the video card is outputting 1080p, and I also switched to my integrated graphics chipset (Intel HD 3000), but it looks the same. I tried opening AMD Catalyst Control Center, but it tells me that the "Host application has stopped working". Doom 3 BFG edition also crashes once I get in-game.

Here's the weird part: When I connect via HDMI my AOC L32W761, all of these problems go away. AMD CCC works fine, the text looks okay, and everything seems as it should. When I connect only my TV, everything is okay too. Why would this happen? I've switched cables, switched ports, uninstalled/reinstalled the drivers with driver cleaners, and I can sometimes sort these issues out, but I'm pretty stumped right now. I don't think the monitor had issues before.

My setup is this custom build I put together last year:
