Question about Philips Brilliance 109MP (White) 19" CRT Monitor

1 Answer

Wondering? My monitor colors seem to only fade after a bit on a certain pc. I don't have the problem with an older pc with windows 95 on it.I would like to use this monitor with my pc with windows 98 on it but the colors go pinkish and the icons blurr and the screen looks like it's in safe mode,so I'm wondering if it could be within the pc rather than the monitor? Video card maybe?Any input would be helpful.

Re: Wondering?

If it works with one puter then that answers your question.The monitor is good and theres a video card or PC /driver problem. Try to uninstall and reinstall before replacing the card. Good Luck

My monitor displays large icons, how will i reset it?

Hello Sir,

Right click on a blank spot on your desktop and select properties. You are looking for the tab that allows you to reset your resolution (I no longer have XP so I cannot double check which for you right now) and reset it to a HIGHER number by sliding the slide to the right and click apply. The higher the resolution, the smaller the icons will be. It may take a little bit of experimenting to find what you like or what you had. It sounds like the program you used is an older one that was intended to run on windows 95 since 95 had a default resolution that was very low (800x600 I think). If you intend to use this program again, try running it in Windows 95 compatibility mode and it may eliminate the problem when you shut it down. To do this, open My Computer and the drive that has your programs on it (probably 'C' by default) and Program Files and look for the program's main executable (".exe), right click on it, click on the compatibility tab and select 'run as windows 95' and OK.

Shaded areas on my X2gen 19 inch monitor do not Show up.

It sounds like the PC video color setting is at 16 instead of 24 or 32 bit color setup. You need to check the display properties setting on the PC (Right click on the desk top). Also try it on other PC and also check the VGA cable.

Brightness of monitor changes itself to quite dim

YOu can go to the monitor settings to make sure nothing's been changed. It could be an energy saver issue where the display dims after a certain period of time, and you can reset it to longer period of time so it would stay bright for you

Screen keeps fading

I don't know for sure if this will help but it's worth a try. Go to Start, control pannel, system, advanced, performance, settings, and click adjust for best performance. This is a Windows XP fix but the same thing may apply to older OS's (95, 98, 2000, ME, NT (although you may have to set it a diferent way). Many other things could be your problem but this is an easy thing to try.
