Question about Proview PX-986 19" CRT Monitor

Open Question

How do I fix a monitor

My parents' monitor for their computer has been acting up. The three lights on the bottom of the monitor that control the stretch, color etc flash rapidly and when you try to adjust the visual settings it takes several seconds for it to work or does something completly different. Is there a way to fix that or do they just need a new monitor? It's a Proview 19" Thank you!

The problem is not your monitor, but the video card on your computer that it doesn't work on. If the video output on your computer is built in, residing near your keyboard / mouse ports, you can purchase another video card to put into your computer and connect your monitor up to that instead. If it attaches to a separate card inside your computer, just replace it. There are three kinds you can get, AGP, PCI, or PCIe. Make sure you get one that will fit inside your computer.

Hey Bob,
I just did this and the following worked for me.
1. Orient the monitor so the base is facing towards you and the top is facing away from your. Make sure the monitor is LCD up.

2. Grip the gray plastics just above the buttons and flex it up and towards you. You should be able to see the button control panel.
It should flex enough for you to rest the bezel and screw holes on top of the underside bezel. When doing this you have to wedge your finger tips between the LCD panel and the gray plastics to separate it. The trick is not to apply too much pressure to the LCD panel itself so you don't damage it. Almost all your pressure should be applied to the gray plastics as you lift "upwards" away from the LCD.

3. Once you have done this, you need to slide the bezel away from you towards the top of the monitor in order to release the side tabs and the top tabs. I found the best way to do this is to push upwards or away from you along the bottom left and right corners of the monitor and move upwards along the side of the monitor.

4. Once you have release the side latches the whole bezel should just slide upwards or away from you.

Note: When replacing the bezel you need to start from the top and insert the top tabs first. Then align the side tabs and last align the bottom button portion of the bezel.

Any monitor will work with any computer provided the correct graphics card driver is installed. When you install Vista and you do not install the graphics driver, Windows will default to Generic VGA driver and you will not get the best resolution that the monitor can display.

Where do I get monitoring software for my computer? I want to keep tabs of my 16 year old daughter online (My space). I know I am an over concerned parent, but she worries me a lot.

at 16 years old if you have not instilled values in her character by now it is too late
probably not your daughter but your over possessive attitude that is causing the problem and lack of demonstrated trust in your child

How to solve Acer monitor black screen and orange light problem?

This doesn't really sound like a monitor issue, although it has been known to happen that some monitors develop a fault that causes the inputs to stop working.

IT sounds like an issue with the computer or the cable.

Hi AnnG,

You need to check 3 things to fix this problem.

1. Check the VGA/DVI/HDMI Video cable that is connected from your monitor to your computer or video card.

2. Try to check the RAM or Memory Module. Check if properly connected.

3. Check the Video Card if properly connected to the port.

4. If still nothing happens you might have a bad monitor

Test all those three peripherals and it would fix your issue. Thanks for using Fixya.

Hope this fixes it for you. It worked for me.

Turn the monitor upside down and turn on the lights in the room.
Then you will see a location for a power cord, remember three wires/prongs. Good luck.

17 inch flat screen monitor has trouble turning on

Make sure that the PC video output is set at 60 Hz. The LCD often will accept up to 75Hz but will not work correctly.
