Question about ViewSonic VA1916w LCD Monitor
Upon startup, the normal procedure is black screen with techical info, then blue screen (windows xp) that says "windows is starting up" then when that goes away the desktop starts loading.
All is normal untill the desktop trys to load. instead of the desktop loading the screen goes black and "No Signal" pops up on the screen, then a few seconds later, my monitor goes on standby.
I pulled the monitor off my other computer (old P.O.S. Proview monitor) to see if it was my computer or the monitor. and its the monitor because this one works just fine.
This is exactly what is happening to my monitor but happens a bit faster. Once the drive starts then the monitor turns on and turns straight back off again. The monitor works on other people's computers (including the tech guy at the shop I bought it from, making me look like a fool). However, once it has run on someone else's computer, it works fine on this one until it has had a long shut down (overnight). I updated drivers yesterday. It can't be too high a resolution since this is the highest one I have used before and the monitor I have plugged into it now has a resolution of 1366 x 768 and it is handling it.

It does not hate that monitor. I believe the problem is in the settings on your video. Your monitor cannot display them. You will most likely need to start your computer in safe mode and change the display settings on your video card or, alternatively, download updated video drivers. Also, if you can't get Windows to start in normal or safe mode, one of the options you get when you press F8 on startup is to start in VGA mode. That will get you in so you can tweak your settings, which are probably set to a resolution too high for your monitor.
