Question about ViewSonic VP191b 19" LCD Monitor
It?s possible the shop may have been right. From your description it sounds similar to problems I?ve had on a few computers in the past; in fact I have one I need to test on Monday morning as well. For me this has usually been a video card/driver problem, I suggest you connect this monitor to another PC. Some LCD monitors have a video cable that is removable. If yours does make sure you use another cable you know works and not the one from your PC. If the problem follows the monitor then I would take it back ask for the manager and try to nicely convince him/her that this repair should be under the warranty since you had brought this to their attention while it was in effect. If the problem doesn?t follow the monitor then the next thing to try is connecting another monitor to your PC to see if the problem reappears. If you can?t do this then the only other option is to assume the problem is your computer hardware or software. - Remove the video cable where it plugs into the PC and check it for bent pins, corrosion; replace and firmly reconnect using the thumbscrews on the connector. - Some LCD monitors have removable cables some don?t; if yours does follow the same procedure outlined above. - If your monitor has a removable video cable try switching it with another one you know works. - Find, download and install the latest driver for your video card, restart and test. - If your video card is not built into your motherboard then remove and reseat the card in its slot and test. - Try another video card in your PC. Tell us the results and please let us know if you have any other questions; thanks in advance for rating this posting.
