Input not supported

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!

SOURCE: connecting dvi cable straight to acer monitor

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.

SOURCE: Input not supported icon shows up

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.

SOURCE: Monitor

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.


Good Luck!

Connect my Acer monitor to my digital cable box.


Not sure what your cable box outputs but connect your cable box to a tv and try changing the resolution of your cable box to 1600x900 or less if there is such a setting; the monitor will not display resolutions higher than 1600x900

I have HDMI laptop and Dell 1706FPVT 17" VGA monitor. I have VGA to HDMI cable and I connected the cable between these two machines but it is not working. Solution, please.


First of, a little bit of explanation.
VGA = analogue
HDMI = digital

The answer seems to be in your question.
it reads "VGA to HDMI". These cables or adapters doesn't work the other way around. I am guessing your cable can only support vga output to HDMI input. And your setup is HDMI output from your computer to vga input to your monitor.
Solution:
Try and find HDMI to VGA cable or adapter. This is expensive.
If your computer has a vga output, use this with vga to vga. You won't get a better resolution by using HDMI to vga.
Or are you stuck with only HDMI output?
There are adapters for USB to VGA too. This could be less expensive. I have one for my friends Apple Air. I am not a "i" fan so I do not have much experience on Apple.

Hope this helps.

How to connect normal pc to a1081 lcd monitor


Check first you have a vga input in your LCD monitor, then use a vga to vga cable from pc to LCD monitor. And before connecting all that, set your screen resolution to 800 x 600 just to make sure compatibility at start. That should do it, then later on using the monitor, adjust the resolution to suit yor taste.

I can't connect my xbox360 to my sony pfm-42b2 tv


Keep in mind that your Sony IS NOT A TV, but a monitor instead. There is an actual XBOX360 VGA adapter that's available at most gaming retailers. It was initially designed for those who wanted to use their PC monitors for there console gaming. HDMI is NOT compatible with a VGA input as HDMI is a digital signal type and VGA is an analog type connection. You must also remember to have the XBOX set to a NON-progressive resolution (480i) if trying to hook it up using the standard XBOX video cables.

I have a Samsung Series 6-650 LCD TV (Model # LN46A650A1F). I am trying to connect my Laptop to use the TV as a monitor and have done everything to make it work, using a VGA/HDMI cable, but the TV refuses...


Why do you use VGA-HDMI cable? This TV works fine with VGA cable - it has VGA plug.
Or if your notebook has DVI output, then you can use DVI/HDMI cable and connect it to the TV to plug named DVI/HDMI (only one HDMI input is marked as DVI on TV).
I suppose that over HDMI the TV supports only some standard resolutions, but over VGA it supports almost every resolution laptops use. You can find supported resolutions for each input in the TV manual. Try setting the same resolution on the laptop.

Not The Bulb


The picture of no input goes off because monitors that do not recieve input go to sleep mode in an instant.

There are four possible causes. First, the cable is not firmly connected to either port, or the cable is damaged. Second, your graphics card could be damaged. Third, the resolution currently set for the machine could be set to a resolution that is too big for your monitor to support, or four, you could have switched your video input. You can change the video input from VGA to DVI and vice versa using the monitor's buttons. The input you want to recieve is from the VGA, though you are probably recieving DVI right now. Apart from that, I cannot help you further as you are not too specific with your information.

Dell Desktop DX270 doesn't work with LG w2052TQ monitor...


A Dell Optiplex GX270 can have either on on-board VGA integrated graphics controller or an expansion graphics controller. If an expansion card is installed, the onboard graphics is disabled.

So first, ensure that the VGA cable is connected to the correct graphics connection (If there is an expansion slot with a video connector, ten you must use that connection)

If connected to the correct port on the system, next ensure that the input select for the monitor is either set to autoselect or ANALOG

Last ensure that the display resolution of the graphics adapter will support the new monitor.
