My ViewSonic 2230wm made a loud noise as it flicked once and shut off forever.

Getting the parts needed and repairing this monitor would probably not be cost effective. If nothing happens when you try to turn it on (i.e. no lights or LEDs come on) then it probably is the power suppley circuitry that is failing. If you are technically capable, you could remove the covers and look for a blown capacitor (the loud bang sounds like a capacitor).

ViewSonic N1930w-2M turning on in gray in stead of color and will not link to computer

Sounds like like the viewsonic has seen it's better days or the Video Card in the computer is bad. To isolate the problem try connecting another monitor to the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor displays correctly, then your original ViewSonic is bad. If the Borrowed monitor does the same as your original ViewSonic, then the Video Card in the computer is bad.

I am eperiencing severe ghosting on my Viesonic VG2230wm. What is the cause?

Does it do the same when attached to another PC? Cable is good?
The PC video resolution is set to the native resolution of this monitor for best pictures?
Common failure in this monitor is failed caps as shown in my pictures here:

Learn about bad caps:

Capacitors kit: he can make you a set of caps for you.

Or just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c, high ripple current, long life rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.
Please leave rating if it helps.

Viewsonic Projector PJ557D "Screen Flip"

Check the power settings o nthe laptop, go to control panel, power options. see if its set to turn off the screen if theres no activity. I doubt this is your problem but worth a try. Going back to the viewsonic picture means its not getting a signal. So either the cable may be faulty which is less likely, or it is a software problem. Does the screen flicker on the laptop when doing the same thing (if the projector is not connected)?

Viewsonic VX2265wm 12o Hz monitor

That's a lot of information and possible problems areas. You need the driver for the Viewsonic screen first of all.. Why do you need to drive the screen at that frequency? you won't notice anything above 85Hz anyway.. I am assuming you have the correct drivers for you video card adn that it is correctly configured for the resolution and frequncy. That video card can drive high resolutions adn high freq's. But if you're only getting those two options then it appears to be a driver option. Get/load the Viewsonic screen driver first.

Lenovo system - Viewsonic display CONFLICTt

yup. possibly a SW conflict. what you can do is to uninstall your video card driver and see if it runs properly under vga.sys driver (microsoft default) if it doesn't run, then you have a hardware problem.

you can come back to me anytime if you need more answers.

Out of range external monitor

The max resolution supported by that LCD HDTV is 1366 x 768. If your screen resolution in XP is set higher than that, you'll run into issues. Reduce your screen resolution first, then run the nVidia multiple display setup.
