Question about ViewSonic Computers & Internet
I don't have much experience with desktop monitors (since I was younger), and I recently plugged in a ViewSonic G90f CRT into a computer I recently built. Whenever I turn on the computer and then press the power button on the monitor, it turns on, says OFF MODE IN 5 SECONDS, and turns off. I don't really know what to do to make the monitor do its job. It's probably obvious, but as I said before, I don't have much experience with these. Thanks in advance to whoever finds a solution!
Crt monitor uses.vga port do you any laptops you can plug in and see if monitor actually works ... recently built pc so does that mean you shoved in another graphics card if so does your graphics card also have vga port, if it does try that

Sounds like your video adapter settings have been wedged. If you are running Windows XP Service Pack 2, you can use the following steps. 1) Boot the laptop into safe mode. Boot into safe mode with networking support if possible. This can be done by tapping the F8 key as the computer first turns on. 2) Once you are at the Desktop, right click on My Computer and select Manage. 3) In the window that appears, select Device Manager from the menu on the left. 4) Find Display Adapters on the right and click the plus sign. This will list the video adapter that you have. NOTE: WRITE this down EXACTLY. You may need to go and get drivers for this. Seeing this is an older model, I doubt you'll need it, but better to be safe then sorry. 5) Go to your manufacturers support web site and download these drivers. You may not need them, but better to be safe then sorry. NOTE: Skip step 5 if you did not boot with network support or cannot get to the Internet. This can be done from normal mode. 6) Right click on the display adpater and choose un-install. Hit OK on the window that appears and reboot the machine when the process is done. 7) The machine will take longer than usual to boot, as Windows XP is re-discovering the video adapter and resetting everything to the defaults. When it is done booting, the screen may look weird since the settings are now the defaults. You can the set them to what you want by right clicking on the desktop and selecting properties. Then go to the settings tab. 8) IF it did not re-discover the video adapter (this can be confirmed through the device manager), then go ahead and install the drivers. Windows Update will most likely also have the drivers.

Ok sounds to me like a power supply problem.. this a a fairly common symptom. I suggest that as a temporary fix you set the monitor to NOT turn the power off to the monitor in sleep mode if possible, in your power settings for the monitor.

Firstly check the connecting cable from the screen to the computer at both ends. Ensure that the thumbscrews that keep the connector in place are tight. Has the PC been moved recently? Any chance the cable could have been put in the wrong place? You can get the installation manual on the following link to see where that cables should go: http://us.lge.com/filedown.do?filepath=1000000757&fileName=L1750B-BF.pdf Try resetting the monitor by pressing the "Auto/SET" button on the front panel for a few seconds with the PC on. If that fails you can do a full factory reset on the monitor by using the on screen menu and navigation to the "reset" function on the setings (gearwheel) page. This is described in the manual page A12. If all this fails then disconnect the cable to the monitor, the monitor should display "no input signal" if it does suspect the PC graphics card is faulty.

if the monitor showing powersaving mode, monitor is ok. It must be your CPU complaint.
