Philips 190B8 LCD monitor running under Win 2000 Prof OS

My new Philips 190B8 LCD monitor appears to run OK under Win 2000 Prof at the recommneded resolution of 1280 x 1024 but when I go to check DISPLAY settings the monitor type is shown as CRT. The LCD tabs are ruled out with a big X.
Do I need to get updated Win 2000 Prof drivers to make it recognise that my monitor type is in fact LCD?

Thanks,

Computer not recognizing new Philips monitor. It tries to run set up and the Windows Logo Screen shows up but it just goes back to the set up screen. I've tried each mode available.


It would seem something is stopping your computer booting and you suspect it is the monitor. It could be or it might be coincidence and the new monitor has highlighted software problems that have accumulated over time or perhaps your graphics card cannot deliver the performance your new monitor needs.

I suggest you test the monitor on a different computer to ensure it works ok and then try it on your own machine after fitting a different hard drive and reloading the operating system so you know it is clean and bug-free.
If that fails I suggest you try with a different graphics card.

We want to purchase a T-17sxl but I'm a dubt about win 7 compability. This table works fine with win xp, but, whats up with win 7? thanks for forrn reply.


Thay just want you to purchase new products, they could have easily make new drivers for WIN7. They will give an excuse that the products are too old to support the new OS. It is the Micorsoft and the hardware manufacturers that want you to buy new stuff.
I am still running XP since a lot of my hardware are still working just fine but they are not compatible with WIN 7.

Monitor picture comes on for only 1 second and then it is blank (black) Color bars appear to be OK (for that second) when running the Self-diagnosis function.


timothy henr, Do you understand how the new screw-in, curlie-Q, energy efficient, CFL light bulbs generate white light?? You will when you find out just what makes the WHITE fixya background on this web page you are looking at!!! Black screen of death can strike at any time!! Do a reply when finished with your research of repair video clips at YOUTUBE. Your search terms are: "lcd monitor disassembly" and "lcd monitor repair." That should get you started. Your unit could have a "switch-mode-power-supply" that detects a problem with itself or another circuit and goes into "full" or "partial" shutdown mode. You should be able to tell the difference if you shine a bright flashlight 1 inch from screen when it goes black!! Partial=still see win-desktop. Full shutdown=no see desktop!!! What wil you do??? Fix or just trade up for new display?? 12fixlouie

"monitor controls locked" message appear and buttons doesn't work


If you haven't already figured it out, you need to press and hold the "OK" button for about 20 seconds-until the usual menu appears. This is how you unlock the controls.

I just installed hasbro classic game collection on pc i have a 19" widescreen aoc monitor and when i try to play monopoly i can not see the whole picture it is like it is long and narrow and the game will...


before you start your game, you can try to modify your screen resolution and then start the game it will fit to the new screen size.

depending on your OS (winodws)

WIN XP close all windows and place your mouse over your desktop right click and select properties. a windows will pop out with the following tabs THEMES, DESKTOP, SCREEN SAVER SETTINGS.
click on settings and you will see a computer screen(s) and it will be a place to change the SCREEN RESOLUTION (800x600) (1024x768) etc try a diffrent one from the one you are using and click apply and then OK. run the game, if it persist just try a different size.

WIN VISTA click on desktop area and sellect PERSONALIZATION, click on Display settings and change the RESOLUTION.aplly and ok.

if my advice was of any help please rate me :)
thank you

Plugged in a new 23 inch LG LCD Monitor and cannot get picture


In additio to the fine help given by Mister.

If you have a DVI output on your computer get the cable for that and this will greatly increase the quality of your display.

Your graphics card should be able to autodetect a DVI monitor and suggest the best display type.
