Question about ViewSonic VP201s 20.1" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

My Viewsonic VP201s monitor is hooked up as a second monitor off my laptop. I can no longer view anything on it. It appears to be flickering at a high speed. However the laptop screen is fine. It seemed to happen when my screen saver didn't kick in and i came back in the room to discover this a couple hours later.

Open the monitor, examine the circuit boards. Look for small components that look like small cans, these are capacitors. If you see any that look bulged on top, then your problem can probably be solved by replacing these. Check out the following sites;

If you have not updated the graph drivers, and it has been working, then you should contact View-sonic, go to their website, check warranty, but if you didn't change anything, it should be the monitor having problems. Did you check the plugs on the PC and monitor, the power plug on the monitor, make sure they are connected right and didn't come lose.

VG150B says out of range when I hook up to my laptop and will not display anything


You laptop screen can handle higher resolution than this VIEWSONIC, which can only handle 1024 x 768 @60Hz, you need to lower your PC resolution.

We have the monitor hooked to a docking station for a laptop. I can not view the screen on the Viewsonic, but does display on laptop. I have been able to do an extende monitor view, but not the main view....


when you connect external monitor to a laptop u get two options in the monitor section of graphic properties tab

1.) extended
2.) clone

it is clear from ur post that u are using extended view

try using clone mode then both laptop screen and external monitor will show the main screen


other method is to disable the laptop screen and just allow external monitor to work, in this case laptop screen shows nothing but external monitor shows main screen

Screen went black


Swap monitor connections to determine if one of the monitors is not working.
If one is not working you probably have an internal problem. If power led responds to the off-on button but no picture is seen, the inverter has likely blown a fuse. Replace the fuse and resolder the leads on all 6 inverter transformers or the fuse might blow again.

Monitor flickering and rolling


Thanks for the git back: #1 I hooked up a second monitor (depressed fn+f5) and was able to view everything fine. No problem in any area. Ran Some security checks (malwarebytes,checked windows updates,Secunia PSI,and a virus scan. #2 I opened up the monitor and checked for possible loose connections. #3 brought up the graphics display and checked that 60 hrz was set and correct. #4 ran a backup of all my data from my other monitor,and I made the assumption that it was a bad monitor and I might save some money if I just bought a new laptop.Would like to here your comments.
