    I have a ViewSonic 15" VA520 LCD Monitor. It works great except sometimes, mostly when we play games a Resolution Notice comes on the screen and says"For better picture quality change to 1024 x 768. This notice stays on for a minute or two and goes off. It does this alot. I have it set at this resolution and I tried setting the properties of the games to 256 color and that didn't work either. It's very annoying. Can someone please help me?

    Some games, even though you may have the main resolution set to 1024x768, will change that for menus and such. Normally you can tell if the screen goes blank and flickers or such when you start the game that it's changing resolutions. Can you get a capture of what the screen looks like with this message on it?

    Thank you for replying. I discovered that I could set the monitor resolution on my actual monitor so it does not display that message anymore. This took me a long time to discover something so simple. Thank you anyway.

    On my Viewsonic VA-912, it has a setting that can disable the resolution notice.
