Question about ASTVision 5B 15 in.CRT Conventional Monitor

1 Answer

I see two screens on my desktop.

I am seeing two screens side by side on my AST 15" CRT monitor.I am running win98 and when the computer boots up I see just the one Win98 start up screen. When I shut the computer down, I only see the one Windows 98 is shutting down screen.
How do I get just one screen on my desktop? I can not see the print on the two screens well enough to read it.
Thank you !

You are using a screen resolution that is not supported by your monitor. Start the computer in safe mode and open display properties. What ever resolution and color depth is (usually 640x480 and 16 colors), click OK button. Restart the computer. Go to display properties and increase the color depth to the maximum value. Set the resolution to 800x600. Restart the machine. Do you see double screens? No? Great! Now try increasing the resolution to the next level. (1024x768). When you click 'apply' you will be give 15 seconds to say it is OK. So if you see double screens, do not click anything. Display will revert to 800x600 resolution (and you will see only a single screen!)

Desktop starts normally. 152s too dark to see. only viible with desklight shone on angle. menu adjustment doesnt solve problem. any fix or is monitor buggered?


Yes, there is one solution.
Open the monitor case, then see for Flyback transformer ( with cable attached to the CRT Tube with rubber cap).Then using screw driver (+ or - ), adjust the screen positions until you get the best brightness.Usually it's on the lower part of Flyback transformer, on the upper side, it's used to adjust the focus.

I have lg studioworks 552v monitor connected to a windows 98 computer . the screen had some problem before now rectified but i had 256 colour running now after repair there is only 16 colour . how to get...


In Win98, you will get only 16 colors if you don't install the VGA driver. It is not a problem with your Monitor. Install the VGA driver. If you can't find the driver (we may be able to help to find it), try replacing the VGA.

LCD monitor goes blank


It appears that the display resolution set in your display properties is out of the range that the LCD can display.

Try this.

Boot to the ENABLE VGA MODE by pressing F8 to get the Windows Boot Menu. If you can get to the desktop, then go to display properties, and see if you can change the resolution to higher settings and maintain video. (If the video blanks out, then it should revert to the previous setting in 15 seconds)

Split screen in two halves


wierd problem.

Smack the monitor around a little to see if there are any bad connections.

Tap it on the sides and the top. If the picture changes, you will have to either check and repair the board or take the unit in for service.

If it doesn't, then it sounds like there may be a problem in the horizontal sync circuit of the monitor. Since it is intermittent, it may be tough to solve.

Be sure to try it on another computer to make sure the fault is the monitor.

I would try booting the computer in safe mode (if it's windows) and adjust your display settings. It sounds as though it is trying to display from your computer something that it cannot properly.
