You are getting this note from a Samsung SyncMaster 171v LCD monitor on a U2 (2x400), Creator3D (ffb2+) graphics, connected with a converter as freshy98 described. To the extent ViewSonic is the same as 171v, you are fine. (The particular adaptor I am using goes by the description "13W3 Male to HD15 Female Adapters" -- "Primarily used to connect monitors with VGA (HD15) connectors to systems with 13W3 framebuffer." eBay usually does not have such a thing, but you can see one here, for example: One or two other companies sell them, too, and I have no association with UltraSpec.)
