Re: input not supported

Do you get anything on the screen when you first turn on your computer?

If you do the windows resolution somehow got set to high for the screen to handle. To fix this press the F8 key a couple times after the BIOS splash screen goes away ( The screen that has HP or DELL, etc on it). If done at the right time it will bring you to a menu that has several options including safe mode. You'll want to pick " Enable VGA mode." From there it will start to load Windows, but everything on the screen will be large. Once windows is fully loaded find a empty spot on your desktop and right click. From the menu that pops up please select Properties. It will open up a box that says "Display Properties." Click the tab that says Settings. On this tab move the resolution slider to right right a click or two to make the monitor normal size and click apply.

Norcent Technologies LM173SB 17 in. Flat Panel LCD Monitor Won't work with Windows 7

I ran into this very problem myself, the issue is that the monitor only supports 1280x1024 resolution MAX. Windows 7 cannot detect this monitor and so it does not know it is limited to this resolution, so Windows 7 is putting out a higher resolution at startup, thus the monitor tries to autodect for a second but then just goes blank because it doesn't understand (and can't display) the signal. The only solution is to use another monitor and adjust the resolution to 1280x1024 or lower, but I run into a problem where as soon as you remove the other monitor and restart, WIndows tries to "plug & play" the monitor all over again at startup. So you're best bet really is a newer monitor unfortunately, I only use my old Norcent monitor with my XP computer.

I have recently added a new Dell E171FPb to my computer .. I am running windows 7 connected to an onboard videocard (motherboard model : Gigabyte GA-8SIMLH) .. this monitor is only allowing me to view...

That is one of the reason I did not upgrade my PC for testing monitor to WINDOWS 7. This monitor is old and Dell will not make new driver for Windows 7, but Microsoft may be releasing the drivers later on since a lot of people is having problem with their perfectly working monitors but will not work properly with WIndows 7 because they cannot adjust the resolution to be at the native resolution of the monitor.
Microsoft WINDOWS 7:

Not much you can do at this point unless you can try hacking the old Dell driver to make it works with Windows 7.

I have A VNV Aquaview 17xp monitor,when I turned it on the power button lit up orange,the screen is black,is the transformer bad,can I buy parts to fix this,or do I need to throw it in the trash. and now...

Take a look inside and also read about bad caps.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for:
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Windows XP Pro. driver for the acer LCD Monitor X193W


To my knowledge, it is compatible and certainly would work with XP. Since this monitor has both DVI and VGA inputs make is compatible for most video cards or even a built-in video of the PC. If for some reason the Acer X193W would not work with your Windows XP PC, possible reasons are:
  • Screen Resolution and/or Screen refresh Rate of the PC's Display Properties too high, try lowering them down;
  • hardware fault either on the monitor or video card;
  • incorrect/missing drivers of the video card;
  • it is being hooked as a secondary monitor and the dual/twin view is not activated.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
