Hi, I have a LG flat screen monitor, it has a disc with it but I cannot find out where the reference number is to try to loasd a new driver as the PC i am connecting it to is quite an old build but it is XP. Please could you help in advising where I can find the ref number or what driver I need to configure to my PC? We have noticed a definate slowness of this PC since we connected this new monitor. Kind Regards
Most likely you do not have enough video memory - that will definitely slow everything down when you switch to an LCD monitor. If you have a video card, your best bet would be to get a better one. If the video chip is on the motherboard (the connector will be vertical instead of horizontal on a tower), it might be possible to increase the memory because it uses some of the system RAM.

hi do you mean you are asking for the blinking codes on your viewsonic pc monitor?. usually lcd monitor for pc has no blinking codes, if your monitor just only a blinking indicator and won't turn on, you must check first the source from your pc if their is a signal to turn on the monitor. if just blinking only then won't turn on you must check the power supply of the monitor usually the main cause is bulging capacitor. just replace it with the same value and rating thanks for consulting the fixya good luck.
Going by the fact you have posted this problem under the desktop section the yes of course you can replace the monitor with just about any make you wish.
There are plenty of choices of monitors to choose from out on the market these days and just because you may feel like you want a branded monitor like Dell for example, it doesn't mean that the cheaper brands are worse. In actual fact you will find that lesser known brands are made by companys like LG/Philips.
I also recommend that you get yourself a flat screen LCD monitor as the larger CRT monitors can fail after a while.
It sounds as if you are missing the power cord for the monitor. If the cord did not come with your monitor/PC, you can pick one up at any Radio Shack or electronics store. If you could forward me your eMachine model number as well as the monitor model number, I will see if I can better solve this for you without you having to spend anymore money.
Check that your monitor is connected properly and tightly to the computer. If it is, then the monitor may be bad. Borrow a friend's monitor and try to see if it works, if someone else's monitor works, then replace your monitor.
How do you have the monitor conneted to your System Unit?, some PC's require a special port for flat screen monitors. Please post what PC you have and what type of monitor also, then i can give you more information.
Can you be more specific ? The first step is to isolate the system at fault: 1) Monitor hardware ? Test it on another PC or Try a different monitor on the same PC Check monitor adjustments. Check the video cable, try another one.
2) What kind of a monitor is it? CRT (like and old TV) or an LCD flat screen
3) Video card problem, possible but not as likely
4) Video driver or operating software settings issue wrong video mode, video settings the monitor can't handle, incorrect device driver
with out seeing the monitor i can just suggest pull out the cord which is in the old monitor and plug it into the new one, if it has the same audio plug slot, im not sure if the dell monitor has a special cord or not , so its hard for me to say sorry
