'input not supported'

I bought an acer 1916wab 19" widescreen, not sure this question belongs here, but all I get after windows starts is a message saying 'input not supported'. I also noticed a sticker on the base of the monitor saying 'for Windows vista'. I am running Windows XP professional version 2002. Will this monitor work with my system (446MHz, 320 ram)? How do I get it to work? I can't play counter-strike 1.6 when i click at the game Saay INPUT NOT SUPPROTED

    I'm getting an "input not supported" box on my Acer monitor and I'm not able to do anything. I have to shut the computer down incorrectly because there's nothing to click on. How do I get around this? It's an older computer (HP) with windows 97--not our main computer. Hope you can give me some advice.

    Thanks!! kr

Restart the computer

While the computer is loading, press "F8" key on the keyboard right before the computer reads the hard drive or press the "F8" key multiple times in 1 second interval until the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" appears on the screen

Under "Windows Advanced Options Menu", using the arrow key on the keyboard, select "Enable VGA Mode" then press Enter.

Select "Windows 2000 or Windows XP" for your operating system.

Wait while the computer is loading and once the computer finishes loading,

Right Click anywhere on the blank area on the desktop

then click "Properties"

Click on "Settings"

and adjust the screen resolution

You need to reset your graphics card settings as you may be using an invalid monitor mode.....
boot into safe mode, and reset your screen resolution to 640x480, reboot into normal mode and then you should then be able to select the correct mode for this monitor, if you are just having problems with a particular game, you just have selected an invalid monitor mode for that game, go into game options and select a different monitor mode/resolution, this should fix..

the monitor is vista compatible, not exclusivly for vista...so you shouldn't have a problem there

"Input Not Supported" after adjusting screen resolution


What resolution are you trying to run? The native resolution for your monitor is 1440 x 900, setting to that should fix your issue

I have 3 acer al1603w widescreen monitor.. it was working ok before, then i let my brothers used them. afterwhich it is displaying "input not supported". WHOAAA!?!!? what do i do? its bugging me for 3 days...


Sounds like somebody messed with the monitor setup on the monitor controls. Check the manual to set it up correctly. If they changed the monitor's Frequency settings, the problems you are having will occur. Gotta set them back to 70Hz and check the other settings. If you need a manual, get back to me with the exact model number of the monitor.

How to change resulution when you get input not


Try starting Windows in Safe Mode. During boot, before windows starts loading, just keep tapping F8, until a menu appears in which you can select Safe Mode. In Safe Mode, set the resolution to a safe, low value in the control panel. Then reboot normally, and everything should work fine.

'input not supported'


First install another monitor so Windows will load.
Then right click on "My Computer" and select "Properties", then click on the "Hardware" tab and click on "Device Manager" button. In the list and click on the "+" sign next to "Monitors" then right click on the monitor in question and select "Uninstall", then click "OK" and close all windows and "Shut Down" your PC. Install the monitor in question again and start your PC and wait 10 minutes or so and XP will set up the monitor like it's the first time you installed it.
I hope I understood your issue and Good Luck.

Input not supported


In display properties under advanced, lower your refresh rate to 60 hertz. Then go up until it no longer supports it then back off a notch.

Input not supported


You may have a video resolution selected on your computer that the screen doesn't support.

The reason you see the the initial startup message is because that is loaded from the bios, prior to the settings for the graphic card output being loaded.

Try booting the computer in safe mode and adjusting the display resolution.

"input not supported"


what you may need to do is find an accepted screen resolution, as your screen is 19" widescreen and your notebook will be set for a normal monitor display, so either try the auto button on the screen or look at the properties of your graphics card om the notebook to find supported screen resolutions for extended displays.

Input not supported when trying to play a game


the game will need to be set to the same screen resolution as your monitor or the best that suits, beccause of it being widescreen, so look in the graphic or video settings in the game, or change the resolution of your monitor to suit the games highest setting. This is done by right clicking on your desktop, down to properties and then the settings tab in the next window and then move the slider at the screen resolution box.
