Question about Acer AL1916W 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Input Not Supported?

Hi i have recently bought a ACER 19" LCD screen. I have installed all the latest drivers and updates for both the monitor and my Video Card but when i try and play a particular game i get a floating window box saying "Input Not Supported". This is a mystery because the game loads and plays/works fine but the little message box will not go away. This is a very recent problem, the last time i played was two days ago and the box did not show on that occasion or any before that. Any help would be muchly appreciated. Cheers

Re: Input Not Supported?

Try changing the resolution in the game. If that doesn't work change the resolution in 'Control Panel' under 'Display'

W17e says "input not supported"

Hi - here's what I found about your wide screen monitor:

The HP Pavilion w17e LCD wide-screen monitor has the following features:
  • 1440 x 900 factory-set resolution
  • Supports VGA analog signal video input
  • Plug and play capability, if supported by your computer system
  • On-screen display (OSD) adjustments for ease of setup and screen optimization
  • Energy Star compliant
Download & install the drivers for the monitor based on the version of Windows you are running from the HP site below:

Once the drivers are installed, your issues should be resolved - the driver will allow only the modes that can be displayed on the monitor - probably giving you options for resolutions you hadn't seen before.

"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

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

Input not supported

This is a communication issue starting with your docking station. Sometimes updated drivers are neede to insure that a device works with all devices between your pc and your laptop. Check on Dells website to see if there is an updated driver. In additon you may want to run the cd that came with your monitor, they are always shipped with a cd with drivers on them!

"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.
