Monitor Out of Range
« on: March 07, 2016, 12:42:55 PM »
my >5 year old Viewsonic monitor has been getting a lot of those as of late, especially after alt tabbing a full screen game or changing resolutions. one time, the screen shifted to the right.


what's causing the problems? is my monitor failing? thanks!

^ it might be failing but you should check your refresh rates, your pc/vidcard might be sending refresh rates that the monitor can't handle also check vga/dvi/hdmi whichever cable type you are using.

Jiggle the cable! If that helps you might need to tighten or outright change the cable.

regarding refresh rates: i haven't changed anything. it's currently at 75 Hz. should i lower it?

why 75Hz?  isnt the default value at 60?
