Question about ViewSonic VA712 17" LCD Monitor
Hi! Just bought myself a new Viewsonic VA712 monitor yesterday. It worked fine last night, however this morning when i switched it on, the screen started to shake, and then everything turned blue! icons, pictures, everything! no colour except a deep shade of blue! The only change I had made was in the screen resolution, (i made it smaller)-- Someone told me I should reinstall my VGA card. I have an nvidia geforce 5200 (? I think!) card. Help, please!
Either the VGA card or the monitor can not display the resolution correctly, so you need to get it back to where it was, this solution is for Windows users (not sure about other OSs), reboot your system and and get in the options start-up screen by pressing F8 at boot, choose safe-mode with VGA, if you see your desktop normally here then it's definately the screen resolution, set it back to a lower resolution (try 1024X768 and go downwards until it works fine), restart your system normally and you should be able to test new resolutions again, if it won't work using VGA mode then you might need to uninstall your VGA card but make sure that you have the correct driver for it before uninstalling, also please disable any onboard graphics card if you have one. I hope this would solve your problem, please feel free to ask if you any further questions regarding this matter. Thanks

I got a KDS Visual Sensations 190is monitor hooked up to my computer with win 98 and Nvidia with latest driver...got the blue screen too. Reinstalling video made it clearer, but still no red or green color just all blue, so what did you do..........

Other than hardware problems, the shake u mentioned might be due to magnetic interference. make sure any adapters for speakers or modem are kept in a place not nearer to the monitor

You will need to adjust your monitor settings in the NVidia control panel. You can get to this by right clicking somewhere in a blank spot on your desktop and then selecting it from the menu. You will want to go into the Display section. If you aren't able to see that section, change from "Standard" to "Advanced" settings at the top of the screen.

This also happens to my vga connection to my TV.
I used my tv remote "auto" button to re-size it to fit correctly.
If your monitor/TV does not have the adjustment, you may need to
supply your vga compatible device with your monitor's driver software.
This tells your computer what monitor specifications you have.
