This means that your computer is putting out video that your monitor can't display. This is normally a resolution and/or frequency problem. You should turn off your computer any way you can, then turn it back on. As soon as you see the computer start up, start pressing the F8 key about 2 times per second. You should get a black and white menu. Select "VGA Mode" and press Enter. This will take you into Windows with the lowest display settings. You can adjust them from there by going into the Control Panel and selecting Display Properties.

I tried Sphynkter's solution and it worked! But once i went into Control Panel to change the setting, it just went back to ''Input not supported'' Why is that so? Is it because i've got no graphic card in my cpu? Please help :)

Your monitor has several different video inputs.
Go to the configuration settings on your monitor and select the video input that matches the video cable from your computer.

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!

Input not supported - floating gray message Win 7


Hi,
You haven't specified what monitor you use but the gray message is most likely due to your screen not being able to handle the high resolution. Try setting it to a resolution below 1600 x 1200.
Best wishes,

INPUT NOT SUPPORTED


Start your Windows in Safe Mode (pressing F8) during boot process and adjust your Display Settings to a lower resolution.... say 1024 x 768. Once fixed, you can play around again increasing the resolution a notch at a time. Fix ya!

Hi receiving input not supported


This message shows that you are not setting the resolution correctly.

When you are in Windows, click on - Control panel - Display - Setting - Screen Resolution (set yo 1280 x 1024). then click ok.

Your floating box will gone.

I got the same problem and got the solution from rma@rosewill.com.

Hope this will help you.
