Question about ViewSonic VP191b 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor problems I have a viewsonic 19" monitor. I am experiencing a message that pops up on my screen that says, "Change the screen resolution to 1400 x 900". This message does go away after 15 seconds, but will pop up again in a few minutes. The pop up does say to press "2" to disable it, but it does not work and my screen resolution does not go to 1400 x 900. However, I do have it set at the hightest resolution possible. How do I disable this message?

Re: monitor problems

You need to change down the res. to a minor mode. i.e. 800x600 low quality. For Windows enter the protected mode - i.e. after POST (bootup) press F8 then enter with your account, or the administrator. Right-click anywhere on the empty desktop and enter "Properties" menu. Turn the screen resolution down in there (i.e. 800x600); also, check whether your current monitor is recognized by model in there. Re-adjust to a suitable working resolution. If all fails, you can also de-install the video card driver in admin protected mode to go back to basics. Of course You need to re-install it again afterwards when in your original Windows.

If it gives you message about the resolution, set the computer to use native resolution of the monitor. You can change the resolution by right clicking on desktop and choosing "screen resolution".

I have a message on my monitor that says, Out of Range. What can I do about it?

you need to change your screen resolution. the best way would be to hook it up to a bigger monitor or a television- one that can handle the present screen resolution, and then back the resolution down before re-hooking up the 19" monitor.

or you could boot in safe mode, uninstall the video driver, and then reinstall the driver, to reset the screen resolution to a basic resolution.

to change your screen resolution (hooked up to a different monitor) right click on the desktop and select "properties" in xp or "personalization>screen resolution" in vista/7.

Resolution notice keeps coming up it says press 1 to clear message or 2 to disable message i do and it keeps coming up


The message on the screen will be something like

your best resolution is 1240 X680

To clear this error what you will need to do is right click on the desktop and click on properties, you will be presented with a window that says 'dispaly properties' click on the tab that says settings. in this window change the resolution (using the slide bar) to match the numbers shown on your monitor

Please can i ask that you leave feedback and vote if this has been useful

Resolution problem of viewsonic VG2021m as the second monitor of thinkpad t61p

Go into the NVidia control panel, create a custom resolution (for the ViewSonic VG2021m, you want 1400x1050, 60Hz), and test it.  When the test asks you if it looks ok and you click "yes", it *still* is not activated-- it is simply added as one of the resolutions available for the monitor, and goes back to the same setting you had before... so it looks like it didn't work.  But then, if you go under "Change resolution", you'll see your new setting is available there.  Choose it, and you are good.

It's working for me, on my T61.
