Need Help Setting Up Monitor

I was given this monitor from a friend and I cannot seem to set up it to my computer. Once I have plugged everything in from monitor to tower and I turn on the monitor I get a message in a box in the middle of the screen that says " Warning PC Video Resolution Change Setting to Recommended Resolution 1024X768@60HZ. I cannot get rid of this message and then the monitor turns off by itself. Can you help me since I am clueless on what to do?
Thank you.

Basically the monitor wants your video card to feed it the display at a resolution of 1024 by 768 pixels. The 60Hz is the frequency and is standard for lcd monitors. Since the monitor is designed for 1024X768, it is shutting itself off in order to prevent damage.

To change your resolution (I'm assuming you have Windows), right click on a blank area on your desktop and select Properties from the list that pops up. The Display Properties windows will open, click on settings and change it to 1024X768. Next click on the Advanced button and then the Monitor tab and make sure the refresh rate is set to 60 Hertz

How do i reset my monitor to factory settings? my monitor screen keeps changing colors from blue, yellow, purple, turkish, white, black, red, green. any way to stop it from blinking?

That is very likely not the computer doing that, it is more likely the monitor is failing. Borrow a monitor from a friend and test the system, if the other monitor doesn't act up then the computer is not the problem. As far as resetting the computer that is a process that can take hours and it will wipe everything on the computer clean when it is finished.

I have a LG 22inch LCD monitor it goes on but only stays on for about 5 min then turns off. If I press the power button it goes on but now only stays on for about 15 seconds please help

First of all, you need to detached the monitor power connection and re-attached it after 5 minutes and check if the monitor works fine.
If issue persists, you need to make sure if any custom settings are made for monitor display power saving mode. To help you find these, please follow the steps mentioned below:
- Click the Start button. Select 'Control Panel' from the Start menu pane.
- Type 'power options' into the search box. Click 'Power Options'.
- Click 'Show Additional Plans' in the 'Select a Power Plan' section.
- Click and enable the 'High Performance' radio button.
- Select the blue 'Change Plan Settings' link next to the High Performance setting to open the plan settings editor window.
- Change the setting beside 'Turn Off Display' to 'Never' under both the 'On Battery' and 'Plugged In' headings. Change the setting beside 'Put the Computer to Sleep' to 'Never' under both headings.
- Click 'Save Changes' to implement the setting.
If issue persists, it is recommended to contact LG Support Center for further assistance from the link given below:

How do i find a manual or the secret menu?

I don't think a monitor setting is causing Windows to not appear.
Here's some tricks I would try...
1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor.
2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor.
3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on.
4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works).
5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord.
6. If the power light is on and yellow or orange or flashing, but nothing displays, or the display is incorrect, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor probably needs replaced.
7. Also, you could try your display on a friend's computer. If it doesn't work, your monitor probably needs replaced. If it works properly on your friends computer, the problem may be with your computers video output port, motherboard video chip (or video card, if you have one), or drivers.
Good luck.

Monitor is not showing the display after booting.


Yes you have change the settings of your display to a higher resolution and your monitor is not compatible with that setting, to fix this you can bring your system unit to a friend or neighbor who has a computer and try changing it if your friends monitor is capable or compatible with your display settings. Or if you have other monitor you can swap it.

Hope I was able to help.

I cannot get any sound from my ViewSonic VA1912wb Monitor. I have everything plugged in the mute turned off showing 100% volume the green jack in back of monitor and green match on computer. No sound from...

You may need to load the monitor drivers.

I assume your PC sound is OK.

When you are plugging the green lead in the Moniotr / PC do you hear any noise from the monitor?? if not may be faulty.

Try plugging a friends set of speakers into the back of your PC.

Monitor goes to sleep and wont wake up

That would be an issue with the VGA (if you used a VGA connection) connector issue. Or an issue with the graphics card. Try connecting another monitor, to isolate the issue.

possible hardware issue.

Weird colors!

Normally this happens if the plug at the back of of the monitor or the computer loose. Try to secure that cable. If they are secure, check the pins on the ports at back of the monitor / desktop or the cable. I also suggest that you try a different monitor cable.

Bright screen with very low contrast

I fixed it myself, it seems that the monitor have some problems remembering it's settings and sometimes it automatically set its settings to crazy values that are out of the range that we are allowed to input. For my case, the setting that was crazy was the gamma setting since it was set so high. I wasn't able to bring it back to a normal setting so I found a way to do it by resetting the monitor. So to reset these display settings such as colour, contrast, brightness and gama, you need to turn on the monitor and unplug the monitor without turning it off and plug it back in again. It will automatically power on and the correct default settings will be present.

This forum isn't very helpful is it?
