Re: Digital Repop

Hi, Even if it is refreshing, shouldn't be that noticeable. One possible reason is not enough memory in your video card for which you can try compensate by increasing the Graphics Aperture Size in your CMOS/BIOS setup. Normally it should be twice of your on-board/add-on video card memory. Another possibility is your LCD monitor is showing signs of pending problem which could either be the CCFLamp, the inverter that powers it or the video interface. Some models of Viewsonic are known to have inverter failures. Specifically, the capacitors are overheating and would need replacement. In some instances, it is the lamp that goes or still others are simply cold solder joints. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

The screen has go black. Every once in a while the screen goes from black to saying Acer. Everything seems to plugged in just fine. The problem even starts right as you turn the computer on. Does this mean...

It could also be your computer.

Connect the monitor to another computer and see if the problem disappears. If there is not a problem, then probably the VGA card of the computer is defect.

Another thing to try before sending anything for repair, is changing the resolution and/or refresh rate of the computer. Could be lower or higher.

"Input Not Supported" message on monitor at boot

Sounds to me like the input has gone out of the boundaries the monitor supports. IE the refresh rate is too high frequency (normally 60 to 72 Hertz for LCD's) or the screen resolution has been set too high.

Go into safe mode and set it back to 1024 X 768 at a frequency of 60 Hz, once back into windows proper you can try higher resolutions and change your refresh, if the screen goes black or displays a message "Out of Bounds" or similar it should revert after 15 seconds if left alone.

Have fun

Screen goes blank when I move the mouse

Did it work properly using a VGA (analog) cable? If so, check your DVI (digital) cable against the pictures at the bottom of
You probably have one of the two at the left. Each has a different bandwidth, translating to a maximum resolution. The native resolution for your monitor might be marginal if you have a single-link DVI-D cable.
My 204B seems very picky about signal-level. It blinks when connected by DVI, even though it should be fine with a single-link cable, and complains about the settings even though the settings are optimal. Maybe yours is similar. I have ordered a dual-link cable and will try that myself.

Screen goes black and power light goes out after a few minutes

it would seem that one of the internal components has failed / overheated Dont open the rear of the monitor !

if pos drop it into your nearest pc repair shop and have is serviced it may just need cleaned to free it from dust build up
on the inner parts this may be causing the unit to over heat

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.
