The screen flickers when I am playing games requiring a high resolution. I sometimes have to turn the monitor on and off a couple of times before I get to see anything on the screen. Most times the images...

If it's a few years old the power inverter could be going, otherwise it likes to run at the "native resolution" all monitiors have a "naitive resolution" i just means the resolution that the manufacturer recomends. It should be in your booklet, also diagnosing games is tough because they are graphic intense. There is a site called "can I run it" that will tell you if your machine can run specific tests. I play Call of duty modern warfare, And with dual SLI video cards I just about run it, with a dual core and 2 gigs of ram. This is subjective at best. also the refresh rate on your monitor plays a big role in these games, anything slower than 5ms is too slow for most new games. Mine are 1 and 2 MS. check the box ou the game it will tell you the minimums

When I start my game, monitor goes black and out of range appears

I suspect the game is trying to run in a resolution that is either not supported by the monitor or your video card. If there is a setup/configuration for the game please run it to choose a different resolution.

You can tell the resolution your are currently running by looking in control panel, display, settings.

Your monitor supports a max resolution of 1280x1024, so if the minimum requirements of the game are higher then the monitor simply will not work with the game. If the monitor meets the requirements then lets look at the max resolution of the video card you are using.

Please let us know if this has solved your problem or if you would like further assistance.

Was having problems with my vx922 lcd display.

Sounds like my problem that I fixed by sending back for repair.
I read that these VX922 monitors are affected by dodgy capacitors on the power board.
I had the monitor for over 2 years. Viewsonic picked it up, yep u guessed it... changed 2 caps on the powerboard sent it back all within 2 days, under warranty. I got my awesome monitor back. Its all good!

The two cards(Gforce Nvidia card) might not be compatible for your motherboard because they're for heavy graphics like playing games, and *********** board is old that you;ve mentioned. including the message memory range unavailable. Try using your old card with the new monitor.

Samsung SyncMaster 17" LCD Blacks out

If you have a second monitor, you could use your computer until the monitor goes black... then plug in a replacement monitor. My guess is that one will display black too...

My gut feeling is that your VGA card is on the fritz... I'm not convinced it's your monitor. Do you have a replacement VGA card you can try? I'll bet that'll take care of the problem.

Resolution notice keeps popping up every thirty seconds or so. very annoying. this happens only when using cd rom game diablo. wants me to change to 1280x1024, which my computer is set at now. otherwise...

When you load the splash screen of Diablo enter into settings. Make sure you have the game set to the screen resolution you want.
For the system. Open display properties. Click Settings, click Advanced, click Monitor. (Most games require 60 hertz) to run correctly. Change your monitor to 60 hertz. Than click the Adapter tab. Click list all modes. Move the slide bar to your normal screen res with 60 hertz. Click ok at every screen as you back out od display properties. That should stop your game from popping up.

Malfunctioning monitor (BenQ)

hi, first run the system in safe mode, if that works than u will have to look in for driver problems/settings, sometimes uninstalling the monitor & display driver then reinstalling it back will change the settings to default, try it, let me know
