Question about X2Gen Computers & Internet
I have a Compaq Presario SR5030NX Desktop computer hooked up to a X2GEN 19'' Widescreen Monitor (MW19U).
After rebooting (and sometimes coming off sleep mode), my monitor has reverted back to a strange resolution (1072x768). This is accompanied by the monitor itself (constantly) disconnecting & reconnecting itself in the background. I know this because the Windows hardware Insert/Remove noises constantly play in the background (which I disabled), and I see the monitor dissappearing/reappearing in the Device Manager in Vista simultainiously. I have tried updating the drivers, but it doesn't stop the disconnecting and reconnecting.
When I start up, it always comes up in the wrong resolution. So I power cycle the monitor (once), which sometimes makes it revert back to the correct screen size (1440x900) automatically. If not, I keep power cycling, and try to very quickly ''catch'' it before it ''disconnects'' back, go into Display settings, and the manually change it back to 1440x900.
Reinstalling/updating drivers, as well as reloading the OS has not helped. I am guessing I have some hardware or possibly power issues (with the monitor). I was just wondering if anybody knows what this is and can help. TIA!

If you are running DVI-D(the white connector) then it isn't getting a digital handshake. If you have inspected the connection between the 2 and make sure there is no bent pins inside the connector that it mates with. If you have another computer, try to connect to that one.
Open windows start menu, right click on my computer, then choose properties. Next choose Hardware, then Device manager. Once there, double click on display adapters to see if installed correctly. If good, click Monitors. If good, then your video card driver must need reinstall or update as usual. Also do you have the correct driver for you monitor? How does it react when you uninstall the monitor driver(can you select 32bit and higher resolution in default drivers?
If none of this works, I would suspect that the replaced component failed due to static or faulty components within the electronics.
Is there any other changes to the PC (new video card, updated Directx9.0?)
Hope this helps and let me know if I can be of anymore assistance?

The monitor is on protection.
If it is monitor fault , then the monitor is on protection.
When on protection you keep having a flashing led on front of the monitor , and monitor turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.
The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the Monitor goes on protection there are only two possible causes.
1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.
2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or a broken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , starting the flashing light.
If you are in situation one, then the monitor will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.
If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.
Common faults that can occur are a blown capacitor on power board, faulty inverter board, faulty input board, or a fault on LCD Digital Controller board.
Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.
Try moving the video cable, and if the cable is not built in, then also try a replacement cable.
If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual
If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

The native resolution of you monitor is 1440x900. If you previously had it set at a lower resolution (say 1280 x 720) the text would appear larger than it does now. You can change the appearance of internet explorer by using the Zoom function (Ctrl +).

This problem should not be only with your monitor, but also with your video card. You might have left one image sitting for long hours. There is no specific solution, but for Lcd users, you can try this. Leave the monitor off for few hours without any connection, maybe power chord or vga/dvi/hdmi cable. If this doesn't fix then the problem must be from your video card. You can try the monitor on another system to make sure, which one is the culprit. Your last choice is to reset the bios, to do this, remove the bios battery and leave it for few minutes outside (2 mins will do) and put it back. Reboot your system, this will fix your problem. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.
