Question about ViewSonic Computers & Internet

1 Answer

The image on the monitor is corrupted; it flockers, ghosts (3 images on the screen), and you can see the image 'rolling' around, icons jumping around - you don't know which image is 'the real one' and if you have pages open with more colour content - the image is broken up much more, so much so that all you see are the horizontal lines of independent colour across the screen; no words are discernable. Only started recently and I need help as I have a big project I'm working on? Can you help? Thanks

Monitor buying tips you should know.


Over the years monitors have transformed from those bulky CRT monitors to square LCD screens to stylish flat wide screen LCD's and now to new stylish extremely thin LED screens. On average every PC user spends at least 5 hours a day looking at the monitor. If the picture is fuzzy and not clear enough then there is a very high possibility that the eyes get damaged.

Monitor Sizes
There are many different sizes of CRT, square LCD, wide LCD and wide LED monitors available on the market at the moment.

If you want an older CRT screen then sizes can range between 14" to about 20", they use the 4:3 aspect ratio.
If you want an older LCD screen then sizes can range from 15" to 19", they also use the 4:3 aspect ratio.
If you want a newer wide screen LCD then sizes can range from 18.5" to about 27" and even larger. They use the 16:9 if they are full HD or 19:10 if they are not ratio.
If you want a newer wide screen LED then sizes can range from 18.5" to about 27" and even larger. They also use the 16:9 if they are full HD or 19:10 if they are not ratio.

Image quality
The sharpness of the image in a monitor greatly depends on your Graphics card as well as whatever resolution you are running at. Nevertheless the quality of the monitor plays an important role.

Here are some of the tips that you should know before buying a monitor.

1. There are three types of monitors namely CRT, LCD and LED. The monitor that looks like a TV is a CRT monitor. In CRT monitors there is a Cathode Ray Tube that shoots electrons into the screen to create the image. An LCD monitor is smaller in width and consumes less power and is healthier if you are going to be spending large amounts of time at your PC. The LED screen looks the same as an LED monitor and the difference between it and the LCD is that it has a much higher contrast ratio resulting in darker blacks and much lighter whites.

3. A CRT monitor is much heavier than LCD monitor as you can imagine by it's bulky appearance. A LCD monitor is very lightweight and so is a LED monitor.

4. The distance between two adjacent pixels in a monitor is called 'dot pitch'. This is measured in millimeters (mm). Smaller the dot pitch the clearer the picture quality. Usually there are monitors with dot pitch varying between 0.20 mm to 0.27mm. Some manufacturers use diagonal dot pitch while most of them use horizontal dotpitch. The diagonal dot pitch is always longer than the horizontal dot pitch

5. Resolution of a monitor has to be considered with care. Most of the CRT monitors have resolutions of 800×600, 1024×768 and 1280x1024. The square LCD monitors have 1280×1024 and 1600×1200 resolutions. Newer wide screen LCD monitors have resolutions of 1600x1900, 1680x1050 and the Full HD 1920x1090. When the resolution is higher the images and text will appear smaller. But you can see more text and bigger pictures in the monitor with high resolution.

6. Another thing to note is the 'Refresh rate'. This rate is usually 60Hz, 73Hz, 75Hz, 85Hz. Refresh rate of 85Hz means the picture on the monitor is refreshed 85 times within a second.

7. The brightness and contrast can range between a low 5 000:1 to a high 80 000:1 in a LCD monitor and an average of 5 000 000:1 in a LED, yes that's 5 million to 1 with a LED. This just shows how much better a LED monitor is to a LCD.

8. If you are a gamer then the thing you have to look at with LCD monitors and LED monitors is the response time. If it is 16ms then this is a very bad monitor for gaming and you will experience a ghosting effect in most games and if it is 5ms then you will have an average gaming experience. What you want to get is a 2ms response time monitor, with it you will have the best gaming experience with no ghosting what-so-ever.

Wide screen monitor distortion
Depending upon the screen resolution that has been set in Display, the image will be distorted on these large wide screen monitors.
To correct this distortion.
1. Create a large circle image using a draw program such as Paint (hold down the Shift key as you create the circle as it will draw a perfect circle).
2. Open Control Panel - Display - Settings tab and adjust the Screen resolution slider, increase or decrease the screen resolution then bring the circle image to the front and check the image, if the circle is still distorted then change the screen resolution and check the circle again until you are satisfied with the image of the circle.
3. When you are satisfied then click apply.

*.GHO files are Norton Ghost images that are used by some OEM's to create a factory defuault image. When you restore this it should set the pc back to the same condition it was in when u purchased it however this will erase all your personal data on the drive.

If you are getting this error it means that the ghost image you are using to restore the PC is corrupted and cannot be used. eaither the CD is trying to read this data from a corrupted restore partition or the restore disk you have is bad (sometimes the disk may look fine- no scratches or anything and still be bad)

Try checking the disk for scratches or smudges but if you dont find any you can clean off the disk you will have to contact e-machines for a replacement disk.

Dell Precision 490 constant reboot after ghost image completed


Hello-

I figured out how to ghost a Dell Precision 490 with a 32 bit Windows XP Image! Like you I had the same problem where it would constantly reboot after I imaged it with an existing 490 image. The answer is actually very simple. Boot up your Precision 490 and hit F2 to enter the bios. Select Drives and then SATA Operation, change it to "Raid Autodetect / ATA". Reboot the 490 and re image the machine, it will now work!

How to change the desktop background image.


There are two ways in which to set your desired image to your desktop background.

Option 1
1) Fistly locate the picture you want as your desktop background.

2) Then double click the image to take you into Windows Picture and Fax Viewer as the default picture viewer. Once there right click anywhere on the picture and click Set as Desktop Background from the pop up menu.

And there you have it. The image is now your new desktop background.

Option 2
1) Fistly locate the picture you want as your desktop background.slasher_x.gif
Then right click on the image and select Set as Desktop Background
slasher_x_39.jpg
And there you have it. The image is now your new desktop background.
slasher_x_38.jpg
Option 2 is a slightly quicker way of doing it as you don't really need to view the entire image in Windows Picture and Fax Viewer as long as you can see the thumbnail of it or you are in Filmstrip view.

To enable the thumbnail or filmstrip file view
In the picture folder click on the menu view and then click on the option Thumbnails or Filmstrip from the drop down menu. Or you can find the view icon on your tab menu.

NOTE: Just remember that if your image is in a 4:3 aspect ratio, such as 800x600, 1024x768, 1280x1024, it will be distorted and stretched if you are using as a background on a widescreen monitor.

Older 4:3 monitors (square monitors) use sqarish image resolutions such as 800x600, 1024x768 and 1280x1024.
Newer widescreen monitors use widescreen image resolutions such as 1152x864, 1600x900, 1680x1050 and 1920x1080.

How to resize your desktop background.


If your desktop is smaller than the dimensions of your monitor then follow the following steps to get a full screen:

Setting the resolution:

1) Right click on an open spot on your desktop and select Properties at the bottom of the popup menu.
slasher_x_35.jpg

2) This will then open up the Display Properties window as shown below.
slasher_x_36.jpg

3) Click on the Settings tab (it's to the top right of the Display Properties window as shown in the image below.
slasher_x_37.jpg

4) At the bottom left of the settings tab there is a Screen resolution heading with a slider bar beneath it.
5) Slide this bar to the left or right until you find the resolution you like.
6) The click Apply when you have found the right resolution.

Sliding the bar to the left = lower resolution, larger desktop icons and less quality.
Sliding the bar to the right = higher resolution, smaller desktop icons and better quality.
NB: If you are using a CRT (older screen) the max resolution will be around 1280x1024. Newer LCD screen (flat and thin monitors) can go way up to 1920x1080 and beyond if HD is supported.

NOTE: If when doing the screen resolution changes your screen goes blank after you click Apply then immediately hold down the Enter key to restore it back to your previous settings

If this doesn't work then it just maybe the case that you need to set the auto screen fit function on the monitor itself using the buttons provided on the monitor.

This tip is useful when you plug in a monitor and the screen displays the No Signal or Signal out of Range massages. Simply change the resolution to something the monitor can handle and there you go.
