Question about Acer 22" X223w LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Closing notebook - "Input not supported"`

I'm running the monitor as an external monitor for my Dell XPS Notebook running Vista Ultimate. I had issues running a game off Steam on the monitor (when I ran it, it said "Input not supported") so I tried updating some drivers to accomodate it but to no avail.
The real problem now is that whenever I close the lid of my notebook, the monitor displays "Input not supported." It's odd because I can use the monitor as the "main monitor" and without the notebook's lcd on.
Video card: Nvidia 8600M GT  (driver fully updated) Connection: SVGA cable (purchased separately because I had some flicker issues; which it cleared up)

    I tried endless combinations of resolutions/refresh rates and it doesn't affect it. Thanks for trying, though.

    When I travel between my user account (administrator and personnel accounts) sometimes the screen display disappears to show the message ''INPUT NOT SUPPORTED''.

    I have to close the monitor and when I open it again it returns back to where I was!

    I was told that this error concerns the time delay configuration, but I can't find how to correct the problem?

The Input not supported on your monitor normally means that the
refresh rate, or the resolution is set to high, CHK laptop settings

Hope this helps

My Dell Inspiron notebook keep turning display off and then go to sleep later.


Go into the Windows Control panel, then to power settings. There you can adjust the settings for the monitor sleep behavior, as well as computer sleep and hibernation.

There are seperate settings for while plugged into power and while on battery.

If you have trouble, just let me know which operating system (XP, Vista, Win7, etc) you are running and I will give you step by step instructions.

Hope this helps you,

Need driver for my dell inspiron 1545 web cam in windows7


There is no Windows 7 driver available yet for your webcam from Dell but the Vista driver might work. Try downloading the driver from here http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&releaseid=R198114&SystemID=INSPIRON1545&servicetag=&os=WLH&osl=en&deviceid=19297&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=1&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=1&libid=17&typeid=-1&dateid=-1&formatid=-1&fileid=273878

And then install the software. Before running it you can right-click on the icon and run the software in"Vista compatibility mode" under the properties tab. The driver should work on Windows 7. If not you will need to wait for an updated driver from Dell.

Monitor problem


You didn't specify the card you are running but here is how I would approach the issue.

#1 refurburished Monitors have at a minimum a 90 day warranty, so be prepared to call Dell Tech Support and troubleshoot if my information doesn't help, if the monitor is defective, then they will have to exchange it.

#2 The optimal Resolution is 1680 x 1050 60 hz, you need to ensure that setting (You didn't specify, so I mentioned it)

#3 Sometimes color issues are caused by cabling issues. Try both DVI and VGA connections, see if there is any difference between them (digital or analog, the picture should look the same) If one looks ok, the other doesn't. then it may be a bad cable.

#4 Does the issue occur on more than one system. If it does, then the monitor is bad. If you have individual pixels stuck on (Red, Green or Blue) and you have more than 6, that in itself is justification for replacement.

#5 If all the above doesn't work, contact Dell Tech support for an EXG
