Having problems with your ViewSonic VX710 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor ?

Replace monitor or video card?

\015 Since I bought my HP media system with the Viewsonic vx710 a couple of years ago at an auction, the moniter has flickered to from a greenish tint to a bluich tint, off and on, from bootup for about 3 minutes before stopping at a very nice color balance. Now it is staying at a very whitish screen. I can see the desktop icons but they are very faded. Not good for my work in Photography.\015\012\015\012World of Warcraft displays very nicely but SPORE shows triangulated black areas. Have to keep my WOW display settings very basic. Perhaps an upgraded video card would be the solution. \015\012\015\012I don't know if I need to replace or repair moniter or just get a new video card. The video card installed is ATI Radeon Xpress 200 Series.\015\012\015\012I have a 19" Sony CRT on my other system that I built in 2002 with a NVidia GeForce FX 5900XT. No problems but not enough space on hardrive and motherboard processor is not fast enough for today's net speed and hungry applications like Adobe Master Suite that I use for my photography.\015

Answers :

Replacing the monitor is the only savior from this problem.
The answer is both. If you are a photographer and use adobe creative suite, an onboard video card is not going to do the trick. You need to get a video card with atleast 256 MB of dedicated memory. Also, the monitor you have only supports resolution of 1280x1024 which is NO where near adaquate. You can get a great updated flat panel that supports a res of 1920 x 1600 for about 150 bucks. (also a17inch is too small) Video card wise, get an Nvidea gforce series between 50 - 100 bucks. Your photography will be much more enjoyable. At 1280x1024 you are looking at a 10 megapixil at about 8%. With a new card and monitor, you will be gettting about 50% more viewable area and photoshop will run alot better.
