Since buying this monitor, alot of my games have not been able to play with the wide screen setting. For instance, Half Life played fine on my old Benq FP767 @1280 x 1020. With this monitor, no such luck at any resolution. Civilization 4 also won't play. They load for abit, then shrink to the task bar where they stay running. If I try to maximize the program, it fills the screen for a moment then shrinks back to the task bar in about half a second. In the viewsonic monitor menu settings, auto image adjust and manual image adjust are greyed out so I can't shrink my screen size which is the cure I believe? Also, in the windows "display properties/settings" box, the "Extend my windows desktop onto this monitor" option is checked and greyed out.

Your screen's ratio is oriented to playing wide screen formatted movies. Set your screen resolution to a ratio that's more or less 2 to 1 and you'll have a more realistic depiction of people on photos.

Assuming your running Windows as the operating system on your computer, go into Display Properties and set the refresh rate to something other than 60 hz or default. On my XP computer this can be done by right clicking on the desktop, clicking Properties -> Settings -> Advanced -> Monitor. Anything in the 70, 72, or 75 hz range should work fine. If this does not fix the problem and the monitor is out of warranty trash it and get another one.
Hm. Well, it might not be the monitor issue. What is your computer model? Are you using a regular PC, laptop (is it wide screen or standard?..in other words is it a square or rectangle..?), MAC, etc?
Secondly, what is the resolution of your monitor?
I believe this must be a card issue in your computer. Have someone check out your graphic card to make sure its compatible with your game. Some times the resolution can cause issues on computers. My husband has ran into that with a few of his games. He could simply go internally on the computer options to change the resolution on the graphic card in order to play the game. It wouldnt look as awesome as it really should, but this should help you out.
Good luck. Let me know if you're still having problems.
