    I was not able to change the resolution while I was in SAFE MODE so when I restarted from safe mode, the monitor went right back to the setting that got me stuck in "input not supported" in the first place. I also have an Acer.

Is there a reset, restore button on the monitor? If so, press it.
If this doesn't solve the problem, start Windows in Safe Mode by pressing on the F8 key as it is booting. When you get the black & white menu, choose safe mode. You should be able to change the resolution to a really generic one (like 600 x 800) here to allow you to start over.
You may have set the refresh rate incorrectly in the display screen, too.

Sul monitor Acer AL1515 compare Input Not Supported


When a monitor displays "Input not supported", the display resolution is set too high. To resolve this, change the resolution to a supported resolution of the monitor. What you can do is restart your computer to safe mode first. These are the steps going into safe mode:

1. Make sure your computer is off.

2. Turn on computer then tap F8 repeatedly once per second. Similarly, Windows advanced options menu should be up on you screen.

3. use arrow keys to highlight "safe mode".

4. press enter twice.

5. log on to your user profile

6. you will get a window asking you to press "yes" or "no". CLICK the YES button.

7. perform the next steps below according to your windows version (operating system)

In Windows XP

  1. Click Start, click Control Panel, click Appearance and Themes, and then click Display.
  2. On the Settings tab, under Screen resolution, drag the slider to the desired resolution and click Apply.
  3. When prompted to apply the settings, click OK. The screen will turn black for a moment.
  4. Once the screen resolution changes, confirm the change by selecting Yes. A timer will count down for 15 seconds to ensure the change is desired.
    Click Yes to confirm the change; click No or do nothing to revert to the previous setting.

In Windows Vista
  1. Press the Start button , select Control Panel, select Appearance and Personalization, select Personalization, and then Display Settings.
  2. Under Resolution, move the slider to the desired resolution and click Apply.
NOTE: For Windows 7, it should be similar to the steps for Windows Vista.

Input Not Support


This means, that your operating system is not set to the recommended resolution of your monitor. Your monitor has a "fixed" resolution where the image will look best. You can change the solution in Windows XP if you right-click on a free space of your desktop, then choose "Properties". In the new window, that comes up, select the rightmost tab. There you can use the slider to adjust your resolution. Just try some different resolutions until the message disappears. If you use Windows Vista oder Windows 7 you can access the resolution windows by right-cliking on your desktop and selecting "Screen resolution".

My w17e monitor says "input not supported"


Not quite sure what the question is that you have not already answered for yourself.
That monitor's maximum resolution is given as 1440 X 900 at 60Hz and installing a more powerful video card won't change that.

During setup, got a "INput not supported" message


Reboot the computer and enter into Safe Mode through pressing F8 repeatedly on the keyboard.

If Windows will not come up, then you have to access the system through system restore.

In windows xp, it's c:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

In windows vista, it's c:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

This is done through Safe Mode with command prompt or command prompt; depending on the operating system.

"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

LCD monitor wont work "input not supported " comes up


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".

Input not supported


You may have a video resolution selected on your computer that the screen doesn't support.

The reason you see the the initial startup message is because that is loaded from the bios, prior to the settings for the graphic card output being loaded.

Try booting the computer in safe mode and adjusting the display resolution.
