Question about ViewSonic 17" CRT Monitor
SOURCE: MEMORY RECALL OK?
From the Users Manual for this monitor:
"Memory Recall returns the adjustments back to factory settings if the display is operating in a factory Preset Timing Mode listed in the Specifications of this manual. - Exception: This control does not affect changes made with the User Color control, Language Select or Power Lock setting."
When the monitor is asking "Memory Recall OK?" it either wants to initiate a settings Recall, or it's asking if the Recall was successful. In either case, the "Memory Recall OK?" message is supposed to go away when you push either button 1 or button 2.
If it does this when you are adjusting settings then it's likely just doing what you told it to, even if you don't realize you told it to do that.
It's also possible for one of the settings buttons to be stuck down and this is causing it to try and change the Recall settings. Push each of the buttons on the monitor and pay attention to what each one feels like as you push on it. If one of them feels different from the others, it's likely stuck.
Tapping lightly on the settings buttons or on the panel beside them will usually free up a stuck button. If a button is stuck and won't loosen up by tapping beside it, you might need to pry up on the edges of the button VERY gently with the sharp tip of a pointy kitchen knife.
If it's doing this when you did not touch any of the settings buttons at all, then this is likely being caused by a dendrite whisker or faulty circuit trace inside the monitor and you'll need to take the monitor to a service technician for repair. But remember to contact Viewsonic first and go to whatever Service Center that they advise, since a repair of this type may be covered under warranty.
One other thing you could try before spending money on it is simply to change the Timing mode in the Windows display settings. Go to "Control Panel > Display", then select the "Settings" tab and click the "Advanced" button. Select the "Monitor" tab and change the screen timing to a different Hertz value in the "Screen refresh rate" menu box. Don't forget to save these settings by clicking "Apply" and "OK" to close all of the Windows settings windows.
Hope that helps solve your problem...

Set the "Resolution Notice" to "OFF" in the Setup Menu of your Monitor or alternatively try installing your Monitor Drivers again using the CD which came with your monitor.

It sounds like the computer is trying to use a resolution that the monitor cannot handle. Boot into safe mode by pressing the f8 key during boot up and select safe mode. Once booted, right click on the desktop and select properties. In settings lower the resolution by moving the bar to the left and reboot.
I would move it all the way down, you can then move it up a step at a time once you are in normal mode again.
Hope this helps

The setting is programmed into the memory of the monitor. It has been set that way, sort of like a memory button for your car's driver seat. The car remembers your favorite seat position, and the monitor is remembering your favorite brightness settings.
It's been a while since I played with any settings on a CRT monitor, but I'm sure if you give it a few minutes, you will find in the menu how to set up the memory recall feature on your monitor.

SOURCE: Memory Recall OK
it may be due to stuck setting button on lcd monitor or due to faulty circuit ... try to see if buttons are stuck ..nudge them a little to see if that makes a difference otherwise call the company technician.

The message on the screen will be something like
your best resolution is 1240 X680
To clear this error what you will need to do is right click on the desktop and click on properties, you will be presented with a window that says 'dispaly properties' click on the tab that says settings. in this window change the resolution (using the slide bar) to match the numbers shown on your monitor
Please can i ask that you leave feedback and vote if this has been useful
