VA520 Resolution Message

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?

Have you tried via the Control Panel/Display function?  The driver provides the means but Windows provides access to those settings.

Upgraded OS to Windows 7. Now can only get resolution of 800/600. Viewsonic does not know what a VA520 is. Any help?


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.

Thanks and regards

Upon powering up, a banner flashes OUT OF RANGE. What is the fix?


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.

Acer al1716 monitor input not supported


You get the message because the game try to run at the PC video resolution that you monitor cannot display/support. You need to run your game at native resolution of the monitor.

Out of range message seen after installed new software and reboot


The monitor will display out of range message because the PC video resolution is too high for the monitor to display, the new software may have changed or corrupt the video seting, try booting up in safe mode (hit f8 while computer booting up) and set the video resolution to 640 x 480, then reboot in regular mode, then reset the resolution to the native resolution of this monitor which is 1280x1024@60Hz.

Resolution notice keeps coming up it says press 1 to clear message or 2 to disable message i do and it keeps coming up


Hi

The message on the screen will be something like

your best resolution is 1240 X680

To clear this error what you will need to do is right click on the desktop and click on properties, you will be presented with a window that says 'dispaly properties' click on the tab that says settings. in this window change the resolution (using the slide bar) to match the numbers shown on your monitor


Please can i ask that you leave feedback and vote if this has been useful

My ViewSonic computer monitor keeps displaying a Vga Not Support Message upon booting then the message Out Of Range comes up on a completely dark screen. Need Help


It sounds like the computer is trying to use a resolution that the monitor cannot handle. Boot into safe mode by pressing the f8 key during boot up and select safe mode. Once booted, right click on the desktop and select properties. In settings lower the resolution by moving the bar to the left and reboot.

I would move it all the way down, you can then move it up a step at a time once you are in normal mode again.

Hope this helps

Monitor problems


You need to change down the res. to a minor mode. i.e. 800x600 low quality. For Windows enter the protected mode - i.e. after POST (bootup) press F8 then enter with your account, or the administrator. Right-click anywhere on the empty desktop and enter "Properties" menu. Turn the screen resolution down in there (i.e. 800x600); also, check whether your current monitor is recognized by model in there. Re-adjust to a suitable working resolution. If all fails, you can also de-install the video card driver in admin protected mode to go back to basics. Of course You need to re-install it again afterwards when in your original Windows.
