Screen flickering and streaking
Is it a new computer you have? or a new installation of windows? you may need to install the current VGA driver for you pc.... but try this first
THE FOLLOWING IS STEPS ON XP. OTHER VERSIONS OF WINDOWS MAY VARY
right click on your desktop - go to properties
click on the "settings" tab and then go to Advanced
Click the "monitor" tab and you can change the refresh rate in there - up the refresh rate if it will alow you, failing that, rather than the "monitor" tab , have a look if there is a tab that relates to your VGA driver (usally on the back row, its a long tab called Intel graphics, or ATA graphics or something like that)
that usually has an option for refresh rate. if there is no option to change refresh, i.e. the only rate you can choose if 60 Hrz for example, then your best bet is to download the graphics driver from the vendors website
Resolution problem of viewsonic VG2021m as the second monitor of thinkpad t61p
Go into the NVidia control panel, create a custom resolution (for the ViewSonic VG2021m, you want 1400x1050, 60Hz), and test it. When the test asks you if it looks ok and you click "yes", it *still* is not activated-- it is simply added as one of the resolutions available for the monitor, and goes back to the same setting you had before... so it looks like it didn't work. But then, if you go under "Change resolution", you'll see your new setting is available there. Choose it, and you are good.
It's working for me, on my T61.
reset your monitor settings with deafaults with menu.u see some buton on lcd or monitor.
ViewSonic VG900 and Raritan Paragon KVM won't play.

Stuck screen resolution on monitor
it could have something to do witht he power setting's , go to properties / then screensaver , then click power options , u can turn sleep mode off there, and also change a few other things that may be causing this, your laptop may also have its own power setting , which is normaly in the task bar near the clock , high proformance , office, games, e.c.t , i assume when u plug the lcd in you have the power cord in the laptop connected, so i would just suggest my first option , and change the settings there , hope this helps
Viewsonic VX2835wm monitor that powers up with a good screen for a couple of seconds and then goes blank. I replaced the power board and it still does the same thing. Could it be the on/off switch?
FIRST WE DO NORMAL AND LATER TRUE CAUSE.
gee that is normal on all monitors and by Energy Star laws too.
the monitor if the PC is dead or in speed mode, shuts of in 15 to 90 seconds, all do, every one. the monitor has self sleep, all do. everyone ever made did. even back to CRT days.
and the OSD button goes dead after. that. too. fooling the untrained.
here is the first tests, NO PC connected at all
power on see power light glow correct color
then see Viewsonic splash screen push the menu button now. quickly, if button dead hold it for 10 to 15 second to reverse the button lock now, see OSD works.
if you test the monitor on a good PC not in sleep mode the but working PC, your monitor is ok.
this monitor is very very old, 2004?
it has CCFL back lamps not LED<
and all fully used CCFL lamps are now no good, used 8yrs a day at 5years are no good. that is why we use LED back lamps now.
this is what they do: all do , used fully.
1: goEs dead forever, (vast did)
2: INTERMITTANT . (BINGO YOU ) OR INVERTER DEAD.
3: DIM BULBS (like me. lol)
4 TURN YELLOW FOR WHITE screens.
5: STROBEs. (FLASHes)
AND A VERY EXPENSIVE SURE, THAT. AND LABOR.

Viewsonic VX2880ML 4K monitor, front vontrols won't work, help.
power on and power on led glows normal , not yellow or flash.

(PC is dead or missing)
- NO connections on 1 or more inputs.
- NO sync
- no signal
- OUT OF RANGE
and goes black screen NEXT,. if all that fails power supply is bad.
if all that works the menu button works for 15 seconds turned on with no PC, and also works on all PCs if connected to one that are all good and not sleeping. test the monitor on 2 PCs if confused.

I have a Viewsonic VE710b monitor. When I connect it to my computer and turn both on, the monitor shows a "No Signal" message. I've checked the connections and all are good. Is my monitor damaged?
First, I'm not a Viewsonic representative.
* Check your warranty. call for support.
*** Following for information only.***
* No signal means no usable signal for a specific input on the TV or monitor.
* If it's just a monitor and not a multi-function TV that also has a Computer to video input then you need to check the device that's hooked up to the monitor as single function monitor's usually only have one input.
* If this is a TV then you need to go to the TV menu and check the "Input Source" to make sure it's on the input plug your using. (I'm using HDMi-2 on my laptop to TV)
* If it's not on the correct input then there will be a different signal (DVD, VCR, etc.) or none at all (No Signal) if those units are turned off.
* Unplug all devices (to reset) and count to 10. Power up and perform set up to your existing configuration.
* Note; as of Jan 2018 most cable TV are not broadcasting in analog (chan 3) and must use a digital tuner to get signal. Some cable Co. provide converters (for a fee?)
* Check with your service provider for more information.
PS, If you do have a damaged input (or feed) then check your video device for alternative outputs; IE: RCA Vid-Right-Left audio, HDMI, Split video (Y-G-B), VGA, S-plug, etc.

My Viewsonic T-46 is stuck in scanning and repairing C drive on start. Can I stop or work around this?
no PC stated. no OS stated, so... weak answers... next.actually only old windows did that! once it needs to do that, that means the HDD shows errors. they are not ever supposed to show errorsand in fact self repair them selves (2001 to now HDD)what I do is shut the PC off.them test the hDD as remote disk and run smart testsor boot the same PC with say linux demo disk (or usb stick)and RUN SMART test.if the fail the HDD is no good. hopeless cases.the next actions is backup data.the PC you have running silly old chkdskwill actually damage more data doing that,that is why w10 does not do that, it just tells you smart fails on HDD0 or the like.Just 2 steps of you have the linux media pre made.as all techs do.no PC stated and viewsonic is not a PC.boot to linux, click try me, then run disktestif it fails smart tests the hdd is bad.http://pcdied.com/linux.html
