Question about ViewSonic VA1930WM LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Resolution I have a Power Mac G4 with a Rage 128 AGP graphics card. I bought this monitor because it said it was Mac compatible. I called ViewSonic support and was told the CD that came with it wouldn't help and I would probably need a new graphics card. I have searched for a new graphics card but not sure what is compatible with my G4 and/or monitor. I have tried many of the available resolutions in system preferences with none being acceptable. Is it time to return the monitor?

    Thank you but I went to the site and could not find my card listed in the driver section for OS 10.4 (or any of the mac operating systems). Maybe it is just too old.

Have you tried updating your graphics card? Go to ATI's website and try updating your video card and hopefully that solves your problem. Go to amd.com and go to ATI tab to update your driver. I forgot ATI is under AMD's umbrella

Um a ati rage 128 pro is not a very powerful card, and after win 98 there isn't any support for direct3d or opengl. So you will need to upgrade to a better card if you expect to play games.

ATI Rage 128 Pro ADC 16MB AGP Video Card


Hello Burnolid,
Well, yes, if you have an AGP PowerMac G4 then any AGP video card will FIT into that AGP port.... The question is to know if that card is Mac Compatible ?
Where did you get the card ? Did you get it our of another mac ? or from someone who got it out of a Mac, then yes, it should be compatible with any Mac with a AGP port.

Compatible Cards


Mac G4 supports only AGP cards today almost all the cards come in PCiE format. Your best bet is a 4x AGP card any brand will do as long as it is AGP 4x.

New monitor but unable to use its maximum resolution settings


no, there's nothing wrong with either your graphics card & monitor.. it just that your graphics card does not support a 1680x1050 resolution. if you want to fully enjoy the resolution of your monitor, you should upgrade your graphics card. purchase at least 256mb graphics card and you will see the difference..
