Hi,

Your posted problem could indicate:

  • a faulty video card (or memory) in your PC (most likely);
  • a defective cable (least likely); and/or
  • a defective monitor.
Course of diagnosis which is at fault would involve:
  • trying the ViewSonic monitor on another PC;
  • trying another monitor in your PC;
  • checking/cleaning/replacing video card, memory or cable.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barelysee the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can beany kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vgacable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves yourvideo card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you rebootwithout you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN(Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correctkey for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key willnormally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works,then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash lightand nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card isbad.

Viewsonic VX2265wm 12o Hz monitor


That's a lot of information and possible problems areas. You need the driver for the Viewsonic screen first of all.. Why do you need to drive the screen at that frequency? you won't notice anything above 85Hz anyway.. I am assuming you have the correct drivers for you video card adn that it is correctly configured for the resolution and frequncy. That video card can drive high resolutions adn high freq's. But if you're only getting those two options then it appears to be a driver option. Get/load the Viewsonic screen driver first.

connect the monitor with another desktop. If if works then problem is with your ram/graphics card or motherboard with inbuilt graphics. If the monitor functions the same way as before have a look at the pins on the connector. Bend/dirty pins can play havoc. If they are ok take the monitor to service centre.
