Greetings !

i have been using a Viewsonic E-641 14" for about 4 years now no problem , lately I have upgraded to a 17 " Lg and the user controls are very good.

I shifted the viewsonic to the office :

There is one intermittant problem with this monitor(Viewsonic) :- the entire image is slightly tilted upwards from the right side ( Image area where the clock shows) , this has happened before when I have shifted the monitor from place to place . but I didn't pay attention >now I have seen that the new LG monitor has an adjustment to undo such a tilt ( under shapes)
I was wondering is there any way to do some adjustment in the Viewsonic as well.

About the new monitor(Lg) should I just let Win xp detect it or should I use the driver that came with the monitor

any help would be appreciated.

If degaussing the monitor doesn't work, and there's no tilt adjustment, the yoke probably shifted on the neck of the tube during transport. If so, the only fix is to open it up, which I suggest you get someone that knows what they're doing in there for. :D

- very rarely are monitor "drivers" are needed... I've never loaded them up... not even with Windows95. And these have been from 14" ~ 19" tubes and 15" ~ 24" LCDs in Windows98 ~ WindowsXP.

- refer to the menu or manual for the TILT function of the monitor, most good monitors have this function, but not all of them.

Johnwill and Compilerxp ,Thanks for replying so soon !

You are so very right Johnwill , now that you mentioned I distinctly remembered once when I called the technician for some other repair work and mentioned about the tilt > he too manually gently jerked the yoke which is at the end of the tube and the problem got solved ( but this keeps happening and it would get expensive to keep calling him).

Compilerxp, No! i do not have any degaussing feature and nor the tilt operation .
any other suggestions ??

Live with it or give it away for a tax right off or give it to someone you don't like at work.


17" monitors are $100~130, look at Samsung... if you go to sams, they sell a Samsung for $100 (but its labeled some othre brand).

Actually, if you check www.morestuff4less.com, you can pick up 17" monitors for well under $100, I have three 17" monitors here, and I paid $45 to $65 for them on rebate deals. :)
