Having problems with your ViewSonic VA721 17" LCD Monitor ?

I cant figure out how to fix the resolution on my monitor. a message keeps popping up telling me to switch resolution but there is no resolutin option in the menu. any ideas?


Answers :

If you have windows xp or xppro and you right click on the desk top go to properties then to settings and then choose your Screen resolution and your color quality. If it does not show up or is grayed out you will have to go to the view sonic web page and download the drivers for it. here is their web site for driver downloads and manuals. hope this helps.

Welcome to FixYa!

From the OSD (On Screen Display) usually there is no option of setting the resolution.

But from your OS (Operating System) you can set it.
Follow the steps;

Right Click on your Desktop >> Click Properties >> Click Settings Tab >> On the lower Left End of the Dialog you will see a slide bar, to set the resolution.

Note: This was for the Windows XP Os, if you got some other OS, do tell me I'll guide you accordingly.

And IF you see that the Slide bar is disabled (you can't move it) this means that the Drivers of your Monitor or/and Display Adapter are not up-to-date.

So check out, what I told you and update me about the status.

I hope this will clear the picture a bit.
