This error message occurs if you plug a monitor into the integrated video connector but your computer also has an add-in graphics card - the computer won't allow you to use the integrated video if you have an add-in card.
See How to fix: Unsupported Video Configuration Detected for more details and solutions.

Do you have an add-on video card installed in your computer?
It's possible your video connection is plugged into the built in video adapter in your computer. Try having it plugged to your video card instead.

How can I add a second monitor to the "system"?


Depending on your hardware and operating system, most of the time you just connect the second display to another output on the video card, the OS detects it automatically and then you use system properties to configure it as you want it: mirror, primary, secondary, extended window, etc.

Alert! unsupported memory configuration. Please populate DIMM1


There should be 4 DIMM slots - two with white tabs and two with black tabs. DIMM 1 should be the white tabbed slot closest to the processor. Slots 1 and 3 (both white tabbed slots) should have RAM installed first, then slots 3 and 4 for additional RAM. If Slot 1 already has RAM in it, pull it out and push it back in to reseat it. If that doesn't work, replace the RAM in Slot 1.

Dell backlight indicators


A computer monitor has a front-mounted LED that displays its current status and flashes in the event of an error. When an error occurs, the flashing may be accompanied by an error message on the screen. If the screen does not display an error message, the problem most likely falls into one of four common categories.

Unsupported Display Mode A video card has the ability to send output to the monitor at many display resolutions and refresh rates. However, no single monitor is capable of supporting every possible display mode. When the video card sends an unsupported display mode to the monitor, the monitor shuts off to prevent damage and blinks, or displays an error message. Standby Mode b> When a monitor detects no video signal from the computer, it assumes that you have turned the computer off and enters standby mode to reduce power consumption. Dell and HP monitors display an amber light when in standby mode. The status light on an Apple monitor blinks slowly. Incorrect Power Supply Some monitors such as certain Apple Cinema and Studio displays use external power adapters. Because different power adapters may have similar connectors, these monitors are designed to detect when an incorrect power supply is connected and blink the status LED rather than attempting to turn on. In the case of an Apple display, the LED blinks in an alternating short and long pattern. b> Backlight Failure b> A flat panel LCD display has an LED or fluorescent backlight that illuminates the pixels and makes it possible to see the contents of the screen. If the backlight fails and requires replacement, the monitor is unable to display any information. In some cases, you may be able to resolve this issue by turning the monitor and computer off, disconnecting and reseating all cables. If the monitor still has a backlight issue, it requires professional service.

Unsupported Video Configuration Detected


Apparently you set a video resolution which your monitor isn't able to handle. Try booting in safe mode by holding the F8 key at boot, then change resolution to something safe such as 1024x768. Reboot in normal mode and set the resolution you're most comfortable with.

Video unsupported



1. Check if the graphics card and the game requirements match.
2. Check in your game configuration what frequency (Hz) you put. Most monitors can accept 60 through 75 Hz. If it's more than 75 or less than 60, change that.
3. Check if your screen resolution matches the game resolution. To check your current resolution, right click on Desktop, then Properties, then Settings and see the "### by #### pixels"
4. If it's not any of those, change your graphics card.

Dell PE 1600SC invalid memory configuration detected


You may need to install memory in matching pairs. If the new memory is a single 1Gb module and you didn't already have a similar one they may not work together. Try removing the original module(s) and see if it makes a difference.
