Re: Input not supported
Sounds like the drivers might need to be updated for the monitor and the graphics card. Most monitors install with windows drivers, so it could just be the graphics card that needs updating. What is the make and model of your graphics card

There are several inputs that a monitor can handle depending if it's capable of doing so. For example, just like TV, if you want to watch a DVD, you have to change the input to Video and going back to TV, just choose TV input. The same way for computer monitors. If the monitor supports VGA, DVI, HDMI and others, you have to select the right input depending of the type of Video cable connected from your tower to the monitor. If you it is connected via VGA, choose VGA input. If the cable is HDMI, select HDMI. That will let your monitor switch from one input to the other..
Hope that works for you. - I'll appreciate the feedback and the thumbs up. Thanks. -jash
You would have to hook it up on the VGA input so you will need a component to VGA lead. I am not sure that the component input supports HD on that monitor but I think the VGA input does. I hope that helps, Will you let me know how you get on please?
(If the picture does not lock on the monitor then I don't think there is much you can do as it will be that the refresh rate of the ps3 is wrong and as far as I know it depends on games/ regions and cant be changed. You would then need an expensive hdmi to vga converter, not worth it better to get a new monitor)
Chances are you laptop has a vga input (looks like a blue trapazoid with lots of holes). Most monitor come with a vga cable. If this is the case you are good to go. If you dont have a cable for the monitor, you need to look on the back to identify the type of input(s) you have (DVI,VGA, or RCA). Then go to your local electronics store and tell the guy/girl you need a blank (monitor input TO blank (Laptop output) and you should be in business.
Let me know if this helps.
checkl in your menu or settings if you have inout it to VGA signal...have you tried other mintor in your current CPU if it works? you can scan the input of the signal from your menu and it should be VGA input.
That monitor has a native resolution of 1440x900 (I used to have one). If the game is feeding the monitor too high a resolution, the monitor can't display it and.....input not supported. So, if the game has a configuration option (without going into the game itself) set the resolution to 800x600 and try to play. If it works, bump up the resolution until it looks acceptable.
To isolate the problem, you need a friend with another computer since right now, we don't really know if the video section (or card) of the PC is at fault or the monitor.
You need to swap displays with someone so you can be certain what is actually not working.
The monitor is obviously capable of scanning inputs for a signal and not finding one.
