Re: "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.

If all of the pins on your VGA cord are OK then it is quite possible that your graphics card is the real issue. If you don't have an aftermarket graphics card then its your on-board one, which is built onto your motherboard, if that is the case you have get a new motherboard. Be sure to back up all of your info because if you upgrade to a better MB then you have to do a clean install. On the other hand if you buy the same one, you should still do a backup just to cover your assets, your able to keep your OS, files and programs intact. Hope this helps!

suzie_q971, You may need to find AL707 driver and download /install it to see if that fixes problem. Software may have been corrupted when new drive was installed on your laptop. Could also be "screen resolution" settings were altered by the technician when doing the laptop repair. If all else fails to work, return unit with monitor and have the tech have a look at it and tell him it worked with the al707 external monitor before. 12fixlouie

You have to sometimes tell the laptop what to display, either externally, internally or both. On my laptop is is done by holding down the function key, and hitting F8 key, but your model might be slightly different.

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!
