Question about Proview PL926WBi 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Wavy lines, goes black during video games.

The screen has a lot of flickery wavy lines that appear when just running typical applications, internet explorer, etc. When playing a video game, even at the suggested 1440x900 resolution, the video goes black (used to come back and go out again quickly, now doesn't come back at all). It does come back if the video game is minimized or closed using alt-tab or w/e. The odd thing is, even when a video game is ran in windowed mode, when the video comes back it comes back as if it's just switched video modes (it auto adjusts itself to the 'new' mode). Video card temp is normal, the monitor behaves the same way on multiple machines, and a different monitor works properly without flaw on the original machine. Thanks in advance, Mythics

Re: Wavy lines, goes black during video games.

It sounds to me like the monitor's refresh rate is too low to support your current settings, and the demands of the game. Have you tried adjusting the refresh rate? If I'm right, you should be able to fix the wavy lines that way. I'm not sure how much control over the refresh rate the game takes, but if you can fix the wavy lines and the game still doesn't work, I think you're not likely to get the game to work on this monitor.

Connect the monitor to a different computer (laptop or desktop), to see if the problem "follows" the monitor.

Connect a different monitor to your computer, to see if the video-card in your computer is generating the "wavy" display.

Move any "power-bars" and PC Speakers *FAR* away from the monitor, to eliminate electrical interference.

Monitor does not come on right away, it makes a clicking noise then say no signal analog. after i trun off and on several times it comes on but the screen is wavy for a while

when you say the screen comes on wavy for awhile, im supposing you have a CRT monitor, not the flat panel type. That seems to be the degauss feature when you turn on the monitor which is normal. The no video issue may be a bad video cable or connection the the PC.

Wavy screen

Try using a different refresh rate. I've found that when you change it down to 60 hertz that the issue usually goes away.

No clear picture just wavy lines and error message

The spec sheet I found says your monitor should be able to display 1280 x 1024, 720 x 350, 720 x 400 and four other resolutions in the 640 x .... range which are pretty useless. Try setting ti to 1280 x 1024 at 16 million colors @ 60 Hz and let us know what happens.
