I have a Viewsonic VA520 Monitor. Anytime I play games I get a message to change the resolution and the buttons on the message do not work. It hovers there for sevetal seconds, disappears only to reappear a couple minutes later. Have changed resolution to match suggestion, uploaded drivers from viewsonic. Nothing works. I have a friend who has the same monitor with the same problem. Any suggestions?

The problem is not at your monitor, it's on the VGA card; there are no drivers installed. Clarify me the brand / model of your VGA (or in case of embeded at the motherboard post the motherboard's brand / model) in order to try to locate and post you back the drivers for Windows 7.
Waiting clarification, don't hesitate to post.

The maximum/native resolution for this display is 1024 x 768 @ 60Hz, you need to adjust your PC video resolution, it is too high right now for the Viewsonic to work. Hook up your old monitor and set the new resolution, otherwise bootup in safe mode (hit f8 key while booting up) and choose VGA support, set the new resolution, reboot.
1. maybe the problem is with windows, because the refresh rate is set to an acceptable value
2. your lcd screen runs at higher hz than 60
3. you are running a resolution higher than 1024x768 15" LCD's generally can only support 1024x768 whereas larger panels support higher resolutions.
1. The LCD you buy is shipped with a plastic cover over the screen which shows maximum resolution and recommended refresh rate. When you first turn on your computer press F8 to access safe mode, after you enter safe mode, configured the required setting on your lcd monitor. when you are done, reboot or restart your computer, hopefully your computer should be fine.
2. attempt to access the bios setup utility by pressing del or f2 of your keyboard after you see the initial display of your pc, if you can see it, the problem is with windows because the refresh rate is set to an acceptable value. Set it to its required settings by entering safe mode as posted on no.1
