Problem with my Viewsonic vp930b monitor.

by captainMarkis / February 27, 2007 8:54 AM PST

My monitor is looking really bad it looks matrixy(?). I don't know what is up with it, I bought it a year ago. Could it be the monitor or something else?

Easy Way To Test It
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / February 27, 2007 9:21 AM PST

Borrow a known "good" monitor from a friend or family member and swap it in.. If the borrowed monitor works correctly, then you'll know the culprit.

Still, it might help us more if we knew more about your computer.. Operating system?, monitor type?, and whether you have tried installing video drivers on your machine, just to make sure it's not a video card issue.

Hope this helps.

But did you do as Grif suggested

try the other monitor on your PC?

Also, is this an LCD type monitor. By any chance did the resolution get drastically changed?

If The Same Monitor On Another PC Did BAD...Then...
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / February 28, 2007 1:47 AM PST should now know the problem... (Is that what you've said?) The monitor is bad and needs to be replaced..

It would be nice to know what a known "good" monitor does on your PC but basically, if the problem monitor doesn't work on any PC, then the culprit is clear.

Hope this helps.
