Question about ViewSonic VG900b 19" LCD Monitor
I have a Viewsonic VG900b monitor that recently just started to show some very strange problems. First the colors have all gone dark, as if someone had turned down the Brightness all the way. I can still see everything, it's just very dark.
More annoying though is that the screen refresh is painfully slow on all operations. Moving the mouse is a chore, with the screen being refreshed about one time per two seconds (fading from one refresh to the next). Even pressing the 1 and 2 keys on the monitor have a very slow (and fading) refresh, and "Auto Adjust Image" and "Screen Resize" have no effect. Also, I have switched this monitor to other Windows AND Macintosh computers with the same result, so I'm pretty sure it's not a software driver problem.
Can this monitor be saved, or is it toast?
Thanks in advance.
It sounds to me like the picture tube in the monitor is going out. I began to wonder if it was your video card until you mentioned that you used it with various computers. This tells me it's the monitor itself. Unfortunetly, I think your monitor may be due for retirement.
