Will I burn out my Viewsonic vp150m flatpanel monitor?

Whenever you have a monitor with a high-density male 15-pin connector attached to a video card with a high-density female 15-pin connector, theoretically they can be used together. The availability of specific video modes will depend upon the specifications of the individual components. If your monitor is not designed to handle the high refresh rate your video card is putting out, you must lower the rate to one acceptable for your monitor or risk damaging the monitor. Brute-forcing an incorrect refresh rate into a monitor that is not capable of responding can be costly! So, the real answer to your question is YES, if you don't be careful. Good luck.

Hi with a flat panel display refresh rates as far as flicker is concerned is irrelevant, but the maximum H frequency that the display can handle will have an upper limit even if you go higher than this you will not damage your display you just wont be able to read what is on the display and it will probably tell you that the signal is outside of its parameters.

Hope this helps

Hi ps with CRT based monitors yes there is a chance that you could cause it to fail.
