Question about ViewSonic VP171s 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Can VP171s work with Windows 95?

I have an old HP Win 95 PC; want to replace an old CRT monitor with a 4-5 yr old ViewSonic VP171s LCD monitor.

When I hook it up, it boots normally into the OS then I get black and white static-like lines and then this message:

OUT OF RANGE
H Frequency 35 kHz
V Frequency 86.2 Hz

I am using it with the analog input on the monitor of course;tried both analog inputs on this monitor and two different monitor cables and still same problem.

**Didn't happen the first time I did it--used for 10 min on the 1 program I keep the PC for and it ran fine (a DOS program).

Ideas or solutions would be welcomed. Thanks

Your monitor probably runs at 60-65khz only(if not adjust the monitor to its highest khz), so make sure the res your trying to accomplish has a matching output.

Viewsonic vp171s lcd flickers on start up then goes black.


This is typical of a back-light problem, especially when you view the LCD screen at a sharp angle and you see a dim Windows image. This fault is caused by either a faulty inverter board or a faulty CCFL lamp.
The inverter supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp. the CCFL lamp is a mini fluro lamp which fails with age and use.
This LCD screen can be repaired, the cost of an inverter board and CCFL lamp is a lot cheaper than a new LCD screen, but this is an opportunity/excuse to buy a larger size LCD screen as these monitors have dropped in price.

Toshiba 19lv505 pc monitor display issue


Since Toshiba 19LV505 is a 720i monitor. Mak sure the resoltion in your PC is as one of the following:

Monitor Display modes
MODE Resolution Refresh rate
VGA 640x480 60Hz
VGA 720x400 70Hz
SVGA 800x600 60Hz
XGA 1024x768 60Hz
WXGA 1280x768 60Hz
WXGA 1280x720 60Hz


Make sure the 2nd one is no bigger than 720, (remember, it is 720i TV) Otherwise 19LV505 will not be able to handle it, all you see is black.

Try it and see if it works.
