Question about ViewSonic VA1912wb 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Can't see full desktop

Got a ViewSonic 1912wb hooked up to an old iMac. At startup everything looks ok, but then the display suddenly zooms in and I can't see the entire desktop. Using the mouse I can scroll to other portions of the desktop but this is quite a pain. Can you help? Thanks!

Change your screen resolution in System Preferences >> Displays. Experiment until you find what is the correct setting.

How to enlarge pribnt on screen

There are a couple of ways you could do this.

Depends on what program you are using, often just pressing the "command" key then the "+" key will 'zoom' the view, then use "command" + "-" to zoom out... this just zooms in on the file you have open at the time.

You can use the 'Zoom' function in System Preferences -> Accessibility, Zoom. This will 'zoom' on where the cursor is currently located to enlarge just an area on the screen.

If you want to change the whole screen, you could change the display resolution. Go to System Preferences -> Displays. Depending on your monitor, you can change the resolution to a lower number which will make everything 'bigger' on the screen.

Caan not get my viewing screen back to original size. It is so large I have to move it around to read everything on it and some of the page is cut off. I went to display and resized it but it did not...

It sounds like you either have the resolution set to something huge or you have Screen Zoom turned on.

To change the resolution:
Go to Apple Menu > System Preferences > Displays > Display and set the resolution to the numbers at the bottom of the list.

If that does not resolve the issue, go into System Preferences > Universal Access and under 'Seeing' turn Screen Zoom off.

I have a ViewSonic19" VG930


Probably you have the incorrect settings. Go to your desktop and right click your mouse, display properties will show up, click on the settings tab and choose 1024x768, click apply and restart your computer. That will fix it.

Imac screen moves around with cursor

Is your screen image also magnified?
It sounds like you accidentally zoomed the screen, which you can do by holding down the control key at the same time you are rolling the wheel on the mouse. When you do that, the screen will follow your mouse so that you can access portions of the screen that have "zoomed off."
Hold down the control key and roll the mouse wheel until you have zoomed all the way back in. Alternatively, visit System Preferences / Universal Access and modify the Zoom options to suit yourself.

Imac g4 lcd black screen replaced pram battery

If you can find an older SVGA monitor, try hooking it up to the port on the back of your mac. If you get video then chances are the LCD display is shot.

White bar on right side of screen

Try a reboot. If it remains, shut down and leave off for about an hour. If it comes back you probably have a problem with your video card. You can have it replaced (it will be pricey though), or consider getting a new computer. I had a similar issue with an Intel iMac 24-inch out of warranty and had the card replaced but your machine is much older.

Zoomed moving display while mouse is moving

You have screen zoom turned on. If you have a mouse with a scroll wheel please hold down CTRL and move your mouse wheel down to return to original screen size.

If you need more help go into System Preferences> Keyboard and mouse> Mouse Tab and at the bottom it will tell you the settings for Zooming, if you don't need it I suggest you turn it off.

Hope that helps!
