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

My monitor keeps say out of range, at first I thought it was a problem with driver but I did everything Viewsonic said to do, I think it is my monitor, is there anything I can do?


that is either resolution problem or animation picture problem your motherboard is with in built dispay card which do not support to high resolution .for that you have to install AGP card into AGP slot then you can see better video .if you want to see low resolution normal computer then restart the computer and press F8 and keep pressed untill options will come then select last good known configuration then enter problem will be solved

I just bought a 28 inch viewsonic screen and the only resolution it lets me see my entire desktop is 1088x612. Otherwise it cuts off all four sides and I can't see the start menu... please help!


You didn't list the graphics card you are using, but from your description of the problem, the monitor has a higher resolution than the graphics card can support (usually 1440 x 900, some are higher resolution)

Generally, the solution if to upgrade the graphics card, if the graphics in your system isn't easily upgradable, then you may need to upgrade to a system with adequate graphics

New wide screen monitor incompatibility issues with older comp


The two cards(Gforce Nvidia card) might not be compatible for your motherboard because they're for heavy graphics like playing games, and *********** board is old that you;ve mentioned. including the message memory range unavailable. Try using your old card with the new monitor.

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..
