Question about LG Studioworks 700S 17" CRT Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor won't stay asleep

I have recently bought a Compac Presario that uses an ATI Radeon Xpress 200 Series display adapter and my monitor is a LG Studioworks 700s. In the power scheme I have set my monitor to go off after a period of time. This generally work but in no time at all the monitor is on again. What is causing the monitor to virtually always be on? I have updated the video card and monitor drivers and it still occurs. Any advice?

Re: Monitor won't stay asleep

I am not familure with that type of monitor however I found through being a IT tech that some monitors have a setting that allows windows to control sleep and wake commands. You might want to take a look at your monitor controls usually located in front of the monitor. This may solve your problem.

Hello, My winXP cannot recognize monitor Asus VH232T - windows suggests 4:3 resolutions only. Can you please advise where can I download the monitor driver? Video card is ATI RADEON XPRESS 200 Thank...


Monitors do not generally require drivers. The .inf drivers to run almost all monitors are already in Windows.

The problem here is in the settings of the graphics card.

Many users aim for Maximum resolution, when what they should aim for is Optimum resolution, balancing the RAM, CPU, GPU, GRAM and Monitor''s resources in the most efficient and effective way.

Keeping the relevant software updated also has an impact on graphics performance (grpahics Card Drivers, Java, Flash, DirectX, Video Codecs, etc.)

If the video resolution is set too high (or too low), beyond the graphics capabilities of the monitor, on reboot, the monitor will be unable to resolve the image.

The simplest solution would be to use a different monitor to adjust the video resolution, shut down then test the preferred monitor again.

Right Click on desktop>Properties>Settings then use the slider scale to adjust resolution, then Apply, Yes on the optimum setting, them OK.

Find the optimum setting in XP with your graphics card for this monitor and you should be fine.

Hope this helps.

I have sapphire ati radeon 5570 graphics card. i have aoc 912sw+ 19 inch lcd monitor. how to connect hdmi port of graphics card with monitor?

the HDMI port is for connecting video and sound to a home theatre / surround sound system. I understand that this monitor only has a VGA connector.

The sapphire ati radeon 5570 graphics card has the following ports on the back to connect to a display: DVI (white), VGA (blue) and DisplayPort (the thin slot in the middle). You can use an ordinary VGA cable to connect the card to your monitor.

Unfortunately you cannot connect this card directly to your monitor using the DisplayPort.

Hope this helps

Screen flashes only for a split-second (as a second display for an iMac)

The inverter is faulty.If your Monitor is powered by a mains'kettle' type lead,then it MAY be repairable,provided you can find someone to do it.If you have an external power supply,then the chances are you have a separate inverter,and it is doubtful whetther you can find the fault or a replacement circuit board....which is why we have become a throw away nation !!

Viewsonic vp912b lcd display will not DVI

Yes you can but there should be an option in the monitor settings for DVI... Maybe if you go into safe mode and attempt adjusting settings for the ati for the dvi output, from what I hear that monitor is nice with the DVI option would be aa shame to lose that.

Monitor works during boot-up but not in Windows

Did you install the ATI catalyst software?  You will have to check a box that says active monitor on your graphics console for the appropriate monitors.

DVI connection

Did you try your monitor with another output (VGA)? If not, try it.
So, you have to check and make sure where the problem is (display card, monitor, or cable). Try with another cable or monitor. This way you will know where the problem is. If you don't have another monitor, try the monitor you have with build in VGA output on motherboard by taking the display card out.
Thank you,

Input Not Supported?

Try changing the resolution in the game. If that doesn't work change the resolution in 'Control Panel' under 'Display'
