1. A lot of Laptops will be able to detect your monitor as a plug and play device.

Try hooking up the monitor to the laptop's VGA (Blue port with 15 pins in three rows of 5). You will need a vga cable to do this.

Once the monitor is connected and both devices are powered on check your laptop keyboard for a key or button with a picture of a monitor or CRT/LCD written on it.

Often this will be a secondary function key. (On my laptop you switch displays by hitting the Fn key and F8)

-

2. If this doesn't work you may have a problem with the video card and might consider sending it to the manufacturer for repair or getting a replacement (not a novice task)

If its still under warranty you can probably send it in and get the LCD or Video card replaced.

I see that this post is quite old, and you have probably found an alternate solution by now, but I hope that you or someone else finds this information useful.

Please help me my optiquest q19wb model #vs11443 is shuting off aftre 1 second i opened it and no capacier were damadged what is wrong... the unit is not old 2 years i am not rich and want to save...


The usual problem with this symptom is an CCFL power supply failure. The inverter is the board that powers the backlights so you can see what is on the screen. If you look really close and with a flashlight, you may be able to see the dark shadow of the image on the screen. Without the backlight, the LCD is useless.

You can get parts from places like http://www.lcdalternatives.com/ or eBay. Search for the model number and "repair" (e.g. "Optiquest Q19wb repair") on eBay.

Viewsonic Optiquest Q19wb lcd Monitor goes blank after 2 secs. A couple of posts say replace the 1000uf 16v Cap My problem is i can't find them on the pcb (where are they?)


Look at the board where the AC power connector comes in that is the power supply board, there are more than one versions so it nay not have the same caps value.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed Viewsonic/Optiquest monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

My Monitor just stopped working. No pop, no fade, just dead. Oh, sorry it is an optiquest Q19wb says manufactured in 10/2006. bought 1.5 years ago at best buy. Worth trying to fix or dump it??


Optiquest is the Viewsonic low end products. You can take it apart and look inside.

Optiquest Q19wb - I accidentally hit the "auto" button and the display is completely off center to one side. If I turn it off/on, it goes the other way. The OSD controls do not allow me to completely...


1 use the install disk that came with the monitor.
If this does not work then you may have an issue with the electronics.
2. take unit to a certified technician to check the circuitry.
3. this could be a inverter gone bad.

Q19wb Monitor Replacement Part Numbers Needed


Look on eBay for "Optiquest Q19wb repair" or "Optiquest Q19wb power"

This is a common failure mode. You can either buy a set of capacitors and solder them in, or buy a replacement power supply board if you cannot solder.

One eBay seller notes the power board as an ILPI-025, which is common among the following models:

Power Board ILPI-025 For LG W1934S & Viewsonic VG1930WM & Optiquest Q19WB & Acer AL1916W Ab etc
Model:ILPI-025 REV:E 79069140

Just let Windows install IE 8 and now the desktop picture is over


Change the resolution. Right click in the middle of the screen over nothing, and select properties then select the settings tab and move the slider left for larger resolution.
