Will work as plug and play if i wait for computer to completly load. but i have to unplug it each time. It just started this about one month ago. I tried the disc but it wont install and gives me manual instructions to install on a xp computer. This is a Vista. I had an Xp computer before using this monitor. So therefore i cannot run the installation disc. in this vista. however it is one year ago that i got the vista computer and the monitor did not give my any problems until a month ago. So I am assuming it is some upgrade that I am missing. Or maybe it is just not compatible with a vista computer.. Just need to know if there is something i need to dowload to get it to run properly on my Vista or should i just get a new one and use this monitor on my olf xp which is still around and workable but slow.
Re: was having problems with my vx922 lcd display.
Sounds like my problem that I fixed by sending back for repair.
I read that these VX922 monitors are affected by dodgy capacitors on the power board.
I had the monitor for over 2 years. Viewsonic picked it up, yep u guessed it... changed 2 caps on the powerboard sent it back all within 2 days, under warranty. I got my awesome monitor back. Its all good!

First, be sure your video is OK by trying another monitor. If you still get no display, then your computer is having a problem with video. If the second monitor works, your first one has gone bad on you. You can fix it, have it fixed, or get a new one. The fix it part is beyond the scope of this answer.
It sounds like you have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors
will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called
capacitors overheating in the confined space of the monitor. If you are
good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix the problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts,replace any that look like the pictures and your monitor should work
fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and -
connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one the
same way. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 plus shipping.
I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

you guys......you don't have a software (driver, refresh rate, etc.) problem. When you first power up the monitor, do you get any display at all (ex, "analog input" or "No input signal")? Of course not - that's because you have a hardware problem with the monitor. Go here and watch the youtube video on how to take apart your monitor and find and replace the "domed" capacitors that have blown:
Fortunately I only had 1 ($1.76 at Radio Shack). I replaced it in less than 30 minutes and my monitor showed "no input signal" upon powerup as expected because I wasn't connected to my pc which is full of all kinds of drivers and refresh settings, etc.
The flashing green power button is a well known electronic problem with
this (and other) Viewsonic LCD monitors. There
is a YouTube video (do a search) showing how to disassemble the VX924 and find out whether the problem is related
to blown capacitors. When I took my VX922 apart I discovered 6 bad
capacitors out of a total of 7 on the power supply circuit board.Only recommended for those handy with a soldering iron.
