Asus Monitor problem

by Dude37 / June 3, 2011 9:31 AM PDT


This has been happening off and on for about a year... The screen will start to fade, and the window will "blow up"... The red X and the other buttons at the top right are cut in half...

If I leave it alone, it could be fine the next time I use it...

I was thinking it might be a Video driver problem, but Asus isn't exactly user friendly for anything, so I figured I would see if anyone else had similar problems...

It's the same in Firefox and IE

Asus VH226H
Win XP SP3

I looked at this model and at a year ago it could have been in warranty. If no warranty I suggest the shopping begin.

Yes, it could be the CLASSIC issue of BAD CAPS (see google) but I can't tell if you are the type that owns a solder iron.

Well, I have square trade on it, but would rather just find a fix considering I don't have a backup monitor... I thought Asus was a real good brand, I'll have to edit that description

It usually gets worse. You didn't reveal much about your video settings or if they match what the display can do but all makes can have a failure.

What I am seeing however is that many are waiting until the warranty expires to get service. That rarely ends well.

Don't you mean the "video card driver"?
