I have a Viewsonic VE175b. It's out of warranty. The problem I have with it is that after it has been on for a while, the image starts to break up with horizontal "static" lines. Then the image flickers on and off, eventually spending more time off than on. If I turn the thing off complete for a couple of hours, it will then operate fine for a couple of hours. But then the cycle begins again. Any ideas?

This monitor should be compatible with Windows 7. Just plug the monitor to your computer and let Windows automaticaly install the driver for it. No need to install the driver from the cd that came with the monitor.
That issue sounds familiar. Some DELL displays have exactly the same problem, and, for some reason, the model of your display reminders me the 172Fbp model that I'm talking about.
I believe the problem that you are having with your display is caused by a short circuit inside the display, as the power supply detects the short circuit, it stops working. You may need to get a technician to have your display repaired.
Hi; I had the same problem. I know that sometimes devices require you to perform some type of '10-30 second' "hold" of one or some of its buttons in order to 'reset' the device, so to speak. So, having said that, try this:
1) Turn your monitor off (no green light) but leave it plugged in. 2) Leave it off for about 10 seconds. 3) Hold the  button on your monitor (the one to the immediate LEFT of your monitor's POWER button). 4) While holding the  button, now press and HOLD your POWER button. 5) Wait for your image to appear and STAY onscreen for about 5 seconds, then release both buttons. 6) Your monitor should retain its onscreen image.
Do you live on the second storey or higher? Couldn't resist. =)
It will probably be the capacitors on the main powerboard inside the monitor. Its a common fault with these and is easy to get repaired.
Unless you have fairly good electronics knowledge though you are best to take it to your local TV repair shop. The voltage inside reaches points far higher then even what you have in the wall sockets of your home.
The repair should not be expensive in any case. Call around and get a few quotes, also check who will service an LCD in your area, some will some wont.
