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.

Have VA520 monitor - no sound from it - can't find a way to turn sound on. the computor volumn is on high.

I would double check to see if the audio cable is firmly connected with the computer and the monitor.

Make sure that the audio cable is coming out from the audio out (should be a green jack) and then going into the correct jack on the monitor. If that doesn't work try another audio cable and test.

Hope this helps

I was given a ViewSonic 520 by my father, but he couldn't find the power cord or USB cable. What do I need, and where in my area can I get them? David Hart Fort Worth, Texas 76119

You don't need a USB cable to plug in the monitor. The VA520 requires a standard power cable, available at any electronics or computer store. Same one used for a computer power supply.

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.

I havE A VEIWSONIC Va520 when I turn it on , it brings up a screen saying out of range H-30-62 KHZ V-50-75 Hz what does this mean?

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.

Possible solutions

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
