Question about Acer P205H Widescreen LCD Monitor
I'm using a microHDMI to VGA cable to connect to this monitor and despire the fact that I've tried every possible resolution but I kept getting the message "Input not supported" floating on my screen. I used this cable to connect to another monitor and it worked so the problem doesn't lie in the cable.

SOURCE: monitor goes black
Sorry to have to tell you this, but this is common in LCD monitors. The reason that it is going black when it boots is for one of two reasons. You either have a bad power supply that powers your LCD or your LCD's backlight is blown. These can be repaired or you can purchase a new one. But if it goes black 9 times out of 10 is because the backlight is bad. These can be repaired!

The cable box is probably outputting a resolution the monitor is not compatible with. Computer monitor and television resolutions are usually different, and not cross compatible in some cases.
For example, wide screen monitors are usually 16:10 aspect ratio, while TV is usually 16:9 aspect.
The AL2216wbd is a 1680x1050 display, while HD TV is either 720p (1280x720) or 1080i (1920x1080).
If your cable box is set to 1080i that would be too high for the monitor. You will need to set it to output at 720p, and even then you will probably get a vertically stretched picture since the monitor has a taller aspect.

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.

When your computer is starting up, hit F8 and you'll see the safe mode, safe mode with networking, etc. screen...You should see a choice that says "enable vga mode". Select that and windows will start and the os will select a screen resolution for you. After that, everything will work fine...I hope.
