I just purchased this monitor and I cannot get it into VGA mode using the monitors menu. I'm stuck in DOS (type or graphic). The little VGA icon doesn't lite up and the cursor just skips over it. My pic's suck, theres no 3D and I don't want to send it back but if this is a defect I will. Does anybody know anything about this problem?

your monitors pwr supply has been worn down, you need a new one (most just get a new monitor) in order to avoid this problem in the future, make sure the screen is placed in a vell ventilated area, and that you turn the power off every once in a while.
Monitors rarely have drivers, aside from color profiles. It is the computer itself which is responsible for feeding standard data to the monitor and as a result any monitor which accepts the correct input (VGA, DVI etc) should work fine.
Due to the monitor only being 19 inches, you will not have any complications regarding different specification DVI, so I need not go into it.
Control Panel->System->Hardware->Device Manager. Select Display Adapters and uninstall it. Then Ask Windows to scan for new HW. Let it detect and install the display adapter.
If this does not work then select Monitor and uninstall it. Make Windows detect the monitor and install it.

The clipping sound is the internal safety switch that keep shutting down the monitor. It means there is an internal problem on the main board (overvoltage, bad component , short). Try unplugging power cord and leaving it unplugged two or three hours, this will reset ICs by draining power completely from circuits, it is called hard reset, it rarely works. CRT monitors waste up to 15 times more energy than TFT screen, if your CRT starts giving troubles, then it is a good time for upgrading it to a new TFT. 17'' start at $120
Make sure your VGA cable is seated properly. If it is seated OK, it could be the start of a problem with a backlight. When a backlight goes bad, it typically shows up as pink/red color where white should be displayed.
