Question about Acer AL1916W 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

"Input Not Supported" after adjusting screen resolution

Monitor: Acer AL1916W
OS: Windows XP Home Edition
Processor: Intel Pentium 4, 1.82Ghz
Computer: HP Pavilion 751n
Problem: When I try to increase the screen resolution from 800x600, the screen goes dark and all I get is a message box saying "Input Not Supported".

No monitor listed in the Device Manager window. Downloaded the monitor driver from Acer's Support Website, but it did not have a setup file. So I put it at C:\acer\AL1916W and right clicked on the ICM file and selected "Install Profile". Restarted the computer with no effect.

Not sure if I need to install VGA driver or chipset from Intel. If so, I don't know which one.

What resolution are you trying to run? The native resolution for your monitor is 1440 x 900, setting to that should fix your issue

I recently purchased and installed the P191W monitor, and now my pictures are stretched. I was told I new to get a new graphics card. What card should I get? Or can I just update the driver? I am running...


Find your monitor's native resolution, in your case it's 1440x900. Go to display settings (usually right-click on desktop and choose properties), go to settings tab and move the resolution slider until it shows 1440x900. Confirm, the screen should flicker for a moment and adjust - and you should be fine.
If there is no 1440x900 resolution available, then installing a monitor .inf file that came on a disk accompanying the monitor might help.

It is display screen resolution issue.

Input not supported is floating round my monitor screen how do i get rid of it


You probably need to change the resolution setting in your computer display settings to a setting that is supported by the monitor.
Your resolution setting right now is probably too high to be recognized by the monitor.
1440x900 should be the resolution setting for an AL1916w if your video card will allow that setting

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.
