The max resolution supported by that LCD HDTV is 1366 x 768. If your screen resolution in XP is set higher than that, you'll run into issues. Reduce your screen resolution first, then run the nVidia multiple display setup.

ViewSonic N1930w-2M turning on in gray in stead of color and will not link to computer


Sounds like like the viewsonic has seen it's better days or the Video Card in the computer is bad. To isolate the problem try connecting another monitor to the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor displays correctly, then your original ViewSonic is bad. If the Borrowed monitor does the same as your original ViewSonic, then the Video Card in the computer is bad.

Since your laptop's display has a problem, that could indicate trouble elsewhere in the computer that is preventing you from adjusting your resolution properly. In fact, a shrunken display points more to a problem in the video processing, not in the display itself.

The viewsonic monitor I have is not showing anything on the screen . It is only two years old. The "on" light is flashing. Please advise


Hi,

Your posted problem could indicate:
  • a faulty video card (or memory) in your PC (most likely);
  • a defective cable (least likely); and/or
  • a defective monitor.
Course of diagnosis which is at fault would involve:
  • trying the ViewSonic monitor on another PC;
  • trying another monitor in your PC;
  • checking/cleaning/replacing video card, memory or cable.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I had the same problem same model. The image was off center to the right and it couldn't be fixed by the auto-image adjust or the manual adjust.

My solution was really simple, I moved a video player (RealPlayer) onto the monitor and maximized the screen, then pressed auto-adjust once. It worked.

Viewsonic Monitor sound problem


Hi check the sound cable hasn't fallen out or come loose from the back of the monitor. After this reinstall the drivers for the monitor you will be able to download them from viewsonic if still not working then the speaker jack or speakers are faulty.

Hope this helps
Thanks J
