Question about Computer Monitors
The monitor comes on and all the computer details come up and after about 5 seconds it goes off and " input not supported" comes on. Please can anyone help. Gillian
Assuming you are running Windows 95, 98, 2000, ME, or XP...
During boot, after "all the computer details come up", press F8 repeatedly until a menu appears. One of the options will be "Enable VGA Mode". Choose that option. Once into Windows, right-click the desktop and hit "Properties". Go to the "Settings" tab, and change the "Screen Resolution" to the lowest possible setting (800x600 is safe). Click OK, and reboot.
Your problem should now be gone. You will want to go back into that screen after you have rebooted and set the resolution higher. At some certain resolution, you'll have the problem again. Don't go that high.
If you are using Windows Vista, then right-click the desktop, hit "Customize", and choose "Display Settings".
