A:Viewsonic Monitor Problem

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.

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).

Hello I recently recieved a a90f CRT 19inch viewsonic monitor

http://www.viewsonic.com/support/desktopdisplays/crtmonitors/aseries/a90fplus/index.htm

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 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. All the fonts and windows are very large, and the only resolution available is 680 x 460, with the only colour option at 16 colours.

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.

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!

Regards,

Jeff.
 

A:Viewsonic Monitor E771 Problem.

Might be starting to fail, 3 year warranty on those generally check the date on the back. Absolute easiest think to do would be to try it on another computer. On the other computer see if you square up the image with the screen if you can't then its the monitor, if you can it could be the video card.

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.

During an upgrade from XP to Windows 7 I experienced a problem with my ViewSonic vx2235wm display and NVIDIA GeForce 8400gs video card. The display is powered and the blue light comes on when the computer is starting up. I get a couple of flickers of lighter gray on the display but no picture. I have upgraded the drivers for the NVIDIA card and the display but no help. The diplay is on a DVI-D single link connector with the video card. I can hook up a Sony display to the VGA connector in the NVIDIA card and get a picture fine. Neither NVIDIA or ViewSonic have come up with anything that helps. Any suggestions?

Hi all,
I'm considering getting a new laptop but I'm having trouble finding reliable advice. Most reviews tend to focus on performance and power when you search for 17 inch laptops so can anyone recommend one which has a decent spec and stays quiet when processing?
I'm not after the top spec machines but my spec considerations are:
Must have space for 2 hard drives. Not bothered about what it comes pre-installed with but I like to have an ssd for my operating system with a storage drive of at least 1TB. I'm happy to install my own as long as there is space.
I like to have a decent processor so I7 is my preference as that's what I've had on my last 2 laptops. I'm not bothered by which generation but I've heard those with skylake chips tend to be quieter though I'm not sure how true that is.
Ram - only have 8gb on my current laptop so not bothered if the new one had more or the same.
In terms of graphics, I don't need anything mega powerful. My gaming rarely veers away from Football Manager and Civilization so will need to run these comfortably when the new versions come out.
Other than that the laptop will be mainly used for Web browsing and watching movies, which is why I want a quiet machine. My current laptop has noisy fans (bad design rather than maintenance) and gets annoying having to push the volume up more than I need to drown out the fan noise.
Cheers all.

A:Looking for a quiet 17inch screen laptop

Oh forgot to mention, preferably i'd like to spend under £1,000 but so far the best option i've found is the Asus ROG-GL752VL which is £1,200 or just under but i'm not sure I need anything that powerful

i got a fatal error response to the hardware test i performed last week, fitted a new hard drive and in doing so noticed some orange fire burn marks on the back plate of the mac. one of the small black boxes on the logic board has apparently exploded.

does anyone know if it is possible to just replace one of these "boxes" or do i need to replace the entire board? the seem super expensive if so is it possible to buy refebished ones or should i just send my mac into apple?

ta muchly.
 

A:Logic Board macbook pro 17inch mid 2009

the 'box' is probably a chip? definitely not a good idea to probe deeper into it, it would be best to send it to apple since they say you should have an authorized apple technician to take a look at it. though in most cases, an exploded chip means the board is potentially useless, probably had a cascaded effect on something else...

Hi I have Lenovo IndeaCentre K210 system with 3GB RAM, 500G HD with the video adapter integrated in the Intel Chipset31/33.
I also have a Viewsonic VX2433 Model VS12324 monitor and the problem that I have is when I open some applications (like Taxcut), the lines on the display (screen), do not line up properly.
For example if there is a YES and NO box to be checked off, the YES box would line up next to the NO Box and the NO Box would line up under the NO box (next to nothing), instead of being next to the NO Box.

This is not only annoying but it is causing/creating problems especially when I work with with the Taxcut program becauses (with things not lined up properly), I am not sure where the correct entry should be made?
I updated the Viewsonic VX2433 driver and installed the most current Intel Chipset driver but the problem still continues.
I contacted Viewsonic and they advised me "the lining up of the boxes is coming not from the monitor but the incoming signal (video card issue)" so it appears that I may need to purchase a new video/graphics adapter and would appreciate your help.
My questions are:
- Do I really need a new video adaper?
- If so, WHAT video card would you suggest that I look at for a configuration of a Lenovo IdeaCentre K210 53134BU system with an integrated Intel Chipset31/33 (video adapter) and a Viewsonic display?

Thank you in advance for your help,
Bob

Aye. I'm really confused. Have any of you ever heard of a site called or company called Hit Systems? They are supposedly a company of computer, cellphone and digital camera wholesallers. But once you get to their site, located at http://www.hitssystems.com/ you begin to wonder if it's legit or not. Their site is really shoddy and they're only method of payment is through a wire transfer, cash or money order. But everything else seems ok. Which is what confuses me. I'm I just paranoid, that an offer might just be to good to be true? And they're located in south america. Anyway, I just thought that I'd ask for a little bit of advice before i purchase a brand new 3,000$ laptop for less than 1,500$. I hope one of you has heard of them.
 

A:holy crap... is this real, a 17inch gaming laptop for under 1,500?

their site also says that they're working on another payment method... which adds to their credibiltiy... but still...

I'll start by saying that I know the problem isn't with the moniter, as I took another moniter
that worked, put it on the problem PC and had the same result. I have a Dell Precision 220
tower unit running XP Home Edition. Can't provide further info due to the moniter problem.
The whole thing began when I noticed one morning that the desktop and web pages I was veiwing seemed dim and slightly out of focus. [ they weren't out of focus realy, but that's the
closest I can discribe what I was seeing ] I hadn't messed with the resolution or any other
settings so I initialy figured the moniter was on it's way out. Well, after a time it did go out,
or so I thought as I no longer had a screensaver, just a black screen. But, when I moved my mouse I got a message that said a cable was disconnected and to check my PC. I checked
cables and what I could see to check with no results. That's when I tried another moniter, the
only difference was I didn't get any message on it. By the way, the PC is running. Any ideas?
Thanks.

You can download these drivers and burn to a CD-R and then install those following instructions to reboot when asked.

Sadly I'm in a rush and I have a time limit so I'll cut to the point

I recently bought a ASUS M2A-VM HDMI 690G Motherboard (My Last got fried in a lightning storm), AMD 64 athlon x2 4200 series, and Kingston DDR2 1gig RAM stick.

(To my understanding they should all work togather) -I hope-

I had to replace my graphics card for the onboard graphics card since it didn't go with this Motherboard, my harddrive is pretty old it was from a old celeron (32gigs)

I got everything hooked up but when I plug it in to my monitor no picture comes up. The monitor reads it's plugged in but stays black.
(My computer also won't turn off, I need to unplug it to shut it down)

If anyone could help (Fast?) I would be greatly pleased
And I thank everyone who even bothered to read this.

Thank You.

If your last motherboard got fried by lightening, then there's a chance that other components got damaged too, mainly the power supply. Was the power supply replaced too? And does the power supply have all the connections the motherboard needs, ie. the 24 pin main connection as well as the additional 4 pin connection?

Also try going thru this guide: http://forums.techguy.org/hardware/580000-troubleshooting-guide-problem-builds.html
Although in your case you wouldn't use a video card but the integrated video on the motherboard.

Good Day,

I have an IOGEAR GCS1764 passing video to a Gateway PFD2485W monitor. It works great at [email protected] providing the KVM is focused on the system at boot time.

If one of the system sleeps and "wakes up", or if a reboot happens while the focus is on another system, both XP SP3 and VISTA SP1 refuse to allow me to set the resolution back to 1900x1200 @ 60Hz, and I have to reboot the system with the focus on it to convince it that the monitor can handle it.

Is there a monitor driver that lets me hard-code the resolutions available as a "generic, non PnP monitor", or is there a way to signal the monitor driver to renegotiate with the monitor, without having to do a full reboot?

Ok, here's my problem. I have a Dell Inspiron 9300 (with ATI mobility Radeon X300). Whenever i turn it on, the screen splits. One side (the right) appears ok, while the left is shifted to the right (so there is a big black space on the far right of the screen) and is all fuzzy.
There is also a barrer between the two sides, so that when i move my mouse from one side to the other, the pointer would disappear for a few moments.
Lastly, after a few minutes on, the left side would "degrade" into muticolored lines and eventually black out. its a little hard to explain.

Now, i know its a hardware problem, but i dont know whether it is the moniter, the video card, or something else in the machine. I also need to know what i should do with it from there. Thank you.

(this is my first post here, so forgive me for anything i left out.)

hello i have a question i'd appreciate it if anyone has an idea what the problem atucally is and possibly how to fix it..... two or three weeks ago the computer was running fine but slow as usual as i'd brought some new memory in the hope of making it faster i decided to have a crack at installing it. So i shut the computer down disconnected all the cables opened up the side, when i tryed to find the slot to but this DDR2 1GB in i founf the slots were far to small for it to fit in so i put the side back on re-connected it. this is were the problem began, i turned the computer on, all the lights came on the hard drive started making all the wizzzing and bleep noises as it does when i turn it on but no picture on the moniter, so i check the connection i tried swaping the cable form computer to moniter, same story, so i think its the moniter, i take it round my sisters use the moniters on her computer it works so its not the moniter, all i can think it is, is the moniter connection port on the back of the computer has malfunctioned, the computer works so does the moniter any thoughts would be greatly appreciated, thankyou.

Hi

Did you replace the RAM in the same slot you removed it from? Did you push it down hard enough so the locking clips clicked into place?

You could try removing the RAM and turning it on without RAM in it, it should beep to signify it's missing. Then repalce the RAM and turn on again to see if it boots. Failing that try the ram in the other sockets.

Well I've had this other moniter for a while and been using it for strictly xbox and tv.. its a 19" LCD PC/TV.. My computer moniter is a 19" LCD. Yesterday i hooked them both up to the computer so the widescreen is an extended desktop to my primary moniter. What i was wondering was how do I get games such as Civ 4 to run on the widescreen without switching the normal 19" from being my primary..? I dont want to run the games in non full screen mode just want them to open on the other moniter because the smaller one i use for msn and other apps..

Today I purchased a new monitor and computer:

Monitor

Initially, I hooked the monitor up to my HP mini, then to my new desktop. When I hooked it up to the desktop, it says "DSUB Power Saving Mode" and then goes to sleep. I have checked the connections and they are secured in tightly.

Prior to this I have never used either the monitor or the desktop. The monitor worked on my netbook. I think I accidently set the settings of my monitor to that of the netbook and I have no idea how to set them back. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I d/l the latest driver for win98 from Viewsonic, load them and it really goes berzerk, delete them, screen is still unstable.

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.

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.

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.
Dwarf

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 was looking to go from my 22 inch NEC FE2111(too big) to an LCD monitor; However, I can't seem to make up my mind. I've narrowed it down to the Viewsonic VP191B ($449.00 at newegg) or the BenQ FP91G+ ($329.00 at newegg). 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.

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

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

When I ran a hard disc error check that is listed under tools under properties of my computer it erased my 22" and it's capabilities to operate @ native resolution. Another difference is that before I manually installed the VX2235, it was listed as a 'non plug and play monitor' under device manager. I have never seen that before. Does anyone know how to fix this? I am this close to going out and buying a new XP Pro disc.

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.

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.

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'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?

Thanks,

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.

hi

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.

thanks.

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

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.

Any suggestions?

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: http://www.viewsonic.com/support/desktopdisplays/lcdtv/n3250w/ )) 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 fine...no 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....

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.

The ViewSonic VA1912W is a monitor, it doesn't have audio drivers. You need drivers for your motherboard's sound chip or sound card. Try the computer manufacturer's website or the motherboard manufacturer's website.

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 have a viewsonic UltraBright A90f+ monitor and an ATI radeon 9600XT bravo video card. While playing some games my computer will hang and I believe use VPU recovery program supplied with the VC and then return to the game. After about 3 times the monitor goes black and "Viewmonitor" pops on the screen with 2 values 18.9 & 23.6 (normal values a lot higher)and the status is OVER at the bottom.It also says User Mode 14? I then have to restart the machine. Also I have noticed that sometimes when I exit a game my screen resolution has changed to that of the game I was playing. I have all the latest driver for Monitor and Video card. I have and ABIT MB using RAID set up and it also has its BIO's and drivers updated. I run windows XP also with 512M corsair ram.

Any help is appreciated

Thx E West

Doesn't sound like the monitor is involved in the problem. A quick swap to another monitor to just be sure.

Does it only occur on one particular game? Anything running hot? How tight is the power supply sized?

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!

I am running Vista Ultimate on a homebuilt computer that has a Athlon 64 2400 processor and 2 gigs of RAM.

The other day I put the computer into sleep mode and it froze.

I forced a shut off and restarted. Now I hear the computer starting but my digital monitor just stays in the amber mode with a "No Signal Found" message showing.

What can I do to correct this problem.

Thanks for any and all suggestions.

A:Digital ViewSonic won't turn on at StartUP

I'm having some oddball problems with mine
I haven't investigated yet, but this is what I do for now
Turn off the monitor
Remove power from the computer totally, by the switch on the power supply or the plug on the wall
Give it a minute or so and power up the computer
After the post beep, turn on the monitor
Maybe it will work for you

Also don't forget to try replacing your video driver

I need some help with a LCD monitor that I bought from a friend. When I hook it up, the screen will be scrambled or very fuzzy. Sometimes I it will work, then sometimes it won't. When I hook my 17" crt up it works fine. Could there be a problem with my video card that doesn't support the LCD? If so, why does it work at times and other times not? The monitor is a ViewSonic VG 175. I appreciate everyones help.

I'm having trouble getting my WMG120 gateway to be seen by the adapter. I can connect through the gateway to hit the internet and the gateway pushes out an IP for the Adapter, but the adapter only picks up my laptop and my server. I tired Viewsonic tech support and the 3 people that I talked to had less knowledge about these devices then I did. I was just hoping maybe someone has one or knows a bit about them and can help me. I have reset the gateway back to factory default and reconnected 5 times now.

Desperately seeking help.

Have a new SonyZ laptop with Vista Business installed. It is clashing with almost everything I've tried to load.

Main problem is trying to connect to an external monitor: Viewsonic VA1912w.

I cannot find any drivers which will let this happen. Earlier posts (some time ago) suggest that the connection was not possible but was expected to be feasible in the near future ie it should be available now.

Can anyone suggest a solution??

Thanks

Vista 32 or 64? I had a problem with my video driver and it turned out to be my monitor driver.

I am on Vista Ultima x64 so YMMV... I had to find a x64 Vista driver from a different model model (newer model). Fortunately for me, it worked well and I no longer have the conflict.

I have never heard of this issue with Vista 32 so I have to assume that you also have 64. if not the case... I am stumped!

Hello,

Few days ago I found something called "EventService" installed on my old XP laptop as an "driver".

I've made another post asking whether the program is malicious or not, but no conclusion is made. Here's all the detail I know:

I don't know if there are still suspicious or even malicious files on my laptop after I uninstalled it, so I come here to for your help, thanks!
