My monitor works fine with Windows XP. I can set the refresh rate to 120Hz and I run my screen resolution at 1024x768. When I go into Windows Vista, the most I can refresh at is 100 Hz and thet leaves me with black edges on the side of the screen and I can't stretch it out any further.
I've scoured the 'Net and can't seem to find any driver files for Windows Vista. I've even called NEC-Mitsubishi support and they told me they weren't going to make a Vista driver for my monitor. So now to compromise, I run Windows Vista with 85Hz, at least I get a full screen.
Please help me with my problem and thank you in advance.

Hi, Have you ensured that your display card driver AND correct monitor driver is installed. This is to make sure that your display card only generates signals that your Acer monitor is capable of handling. If you do not have the driver CD for your monitor you can download the software from www.acer.com. The problem is most likely that your display card is generating a refresh rate which your monitor cant handle. Go to your display properties and lower the refresh rate of your display card and see if this solves the problem. Best wishes, Graemevm
Remove the screws as you have done. Looking at the monitor front on you'll see 3 bits sticking down from the top (in the deatil gap) which are clips unclip them by pushing through the corresponding holes along the top. Also there's a clip at each side on the underside of the monitor which are very obvious. With the monitor facing down and everything unclipped just pull the cover upwards. It's not easy but work your way round the front edge and it will come.
try booting in safemode .. to do that.. reboot computer, as soon as it starts coming up, hit f8, then with the menu that comes up hit, start in safe mode, when windows starts up, just change refresh rate back, and then reboot normal...
The refresh rate can be configured in Windows in the display properties. It does require that your monitor has been identified or configured, otherwise it can limit the refresh rate. You can overrule the setting to not limit the refresh rate to compatible devices only, but be careful to not configure it too high as it can break your monitor!
Since this was a new out of the box computer, Safe Mode was not allowed. In order to change monitor settings (resolution), I had to use another monitor, in this case a newer CRT. With the CRT, the computer booted up, no problem. Once booted, I turned down the monitor resolution and saved. Now when the Princeton LCD was plugged in and the computer restarted, everything works fine. Now the resolution could be set to limits of the monitor.
I assume you're using windows XP or Vista ? The OS uses data from the monitor to tell it resolutions and refresh rates supported. If you get flicker and cannot alter the refresh rate, it is because the monitor will not supprt a fatsre refresh rate. Your only option, unfortunately, is to get a new monitor, or the cheaper option, use a different resolution.
I have had the same problem with my 991sb and most recently my 930sb. The first was replaced at NEC's expense however on this second one i'm out of luck. I think its a problem with its power inverter. It may be repairable by a tv repair place. I'll be looking into it and let you guys know.
It sounds like the problem is with the computer's video adapter settings. It is very likely that the monitor cannot handle the settings.
If you boot into safe mode, can you see everything? If so, then the normal mode settings are too high. Safe mode defaults to the lowest possible settings (thats why everything will look really big)
Try turning down the resolution (Right click on the desktop, select properties, go to settings tab) to the lowest possible setting, and then slowly try turn them back up again until you can find the maximum setting the monitor can handle.
