My monitor has gone a bright blue

Check the pins in the end of the monitor cable, look for bent ones. If it's okay re connect to the monitor and try again. Unplug the monitor and wait for a few seconds, plug power back in. Cycle power on the monitor. Then restart your computer. Wiggle the monitor cable on either end and see if the color changes.Good luck

I can't connect an external HF199H monitor, on a 2007 MacBook 3,1 running Windows 7. Help??

ok so for clarification, you are using a MacBook w/ a dual boot to windows 7 Ultimate? and after the update from Vista it now is not detecting your external display.

If I am correct, your graphics card is most likely an NVidia chip set. Do some research and find your specific graphics card, go to the NVidia website and download the most up to date drivers for it and try again. If you have done this already, try emailing them and find out if your graphics card is compatible w/ windows 7 or if the driver was specifically designed for vista. That's where I would start.

When set on 1280 x 1024 pixels everything looks great but too small for me to read. When I change the setting to 1280 x 800 or lower, words are blurry and taskbar disappears. Can you help?

Which version of Windows are you running? Slightly different between versions, but basically *somewhere* in Control Panel there will be something shown along the lines of Display Options, and somewhere in there will be an option to change Font DPI. (I think XP has a selection of either 80DPI or 120DPI, default is at 80 - Text is much larger and easier to read at 120)
In Windows 7 (and probably Vista) the path is- Start - Control Panel - Appearance and Personalization - Display - "Make text and other items larger or smaller"

Cant use my rad 5 with a desktop Dell computer with Vista

Temporarily connect another monitor to your computer.

Set the screen-resolution to 800 by 600 at 60 Hertz.

Disconnect the other monitor, and connect your RAD.

It should display.

Try changing the screen-resolution to 1024 by 768, and "test" it.

I am looking for a monitor driver for Windows Vista for LT1919

Windows XP and Vista should "auto-detect" the capabilities of this LCD screen.

If not, access
and scan for updates.
When the scan is done, look for "optional hardware" updates.
If Microsoft has a driver, it will be offered for download.

How can I make fonts look good in an LCD monitor ?

The VGA connection should be fine; I have DVI and when I switched from analog, the difference was pretty minimal, to my eyes.

Is it just the fonts that are blurry, or everything? If fonts only, then this almost certainly suggests that running the ClearType tuner again would solve the problem. But this applies to all displays, so if one is good and the other is not, then this isn't it.

If everything is a little blurry, then this suggests one of two problems -- the first, you report trying, which is that the display adapter is set to a different resolution than the native resolution of the LCD monitor itself. Your display adapter should probably be able to drive 2 monitors (the built-in laptop monitor and the external monitor) at once. You should be able to set their resolutions separately.

Assuming Windows XP: Start > Control Panel > Display > Settings > at which point, you should see two monitors listed in a dropdown. Set them to their native resolutions there (using the slider bar, usually all the way to the right), and save.

If you do have the display resolutions set to their native resolutions for both monitors, then it's possible that your external monitor is messed up. A quick test would be to run the on-screen settings, usually from a button on the monitor itself. If what is displayed there is sharp and what is displayed from Windows is not, then this points to a problem with the display driver. If everything, even the on-screen display is blurry, then perhaps the monitor settings are messed up -- usually there's an option to restore to factory settings -- try that.

If that doesn't work, I'm probably out of ideas, unless you have further information.

My monitor crt a90f+ viewsonic blurry

Ensure that the monitor's UltraBrite mode is off, via the "UltraBrite Mode" button on the front panel. UltraBrite is great for games and movies, but it tends to fuzz plain text ever so slightly.
