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

Dell 2407 Can't get rid of "No S-video input signal" message on screen. How do I get rid of this?


Your S-Video connection is referring to a round plug for a TV input signal. Most computers will not have this connection unless you have a TV based video card. If your using a TV 'monitor' as your computer's video device, their will either be a button on the monitor or your remote to allow you to choose the input signal. If you are using a VGA or HDMI or DVI cable as the connector between the two devices, most likely, the light is referring to one of these, as its video source. You will need to match the cable & monitor source detected to get a usable picture output.

Good luck.

When i put pc on this message comes up on screen saying input not supported and it floats round in a little box.


Hello,
This generally means you have the display resolution set higher then the monitor can support. To fix this press F8 after you turn the computer on. You may have to press it a couple times before the windows loading screen. A black menu will come up. Select safe mode. Your PC will load into safe mode with minimal drivers and settings. Go to the control panel and select display. Change your screen resolution to something lower then the setting is is at right now. If your screen is 19" or smaller try a setting of 1024x768 for starters. If its 20" or higher try 1280x1024 for starters.

MY MONITOR IS SHOWING AN INPUT NOT SUPPORTED FLOATING MESSAGE. I JUST HOOKED IT UP TO AN EMACHINES COMPUTER. WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?


Does the monitor work on another computer? does the computer work with another monitor? I the answer is yes to both then here is the most likely solution
you may have the screen resolution and/or the refresh rate set too high on the emachines computer. For Windows XP: Boot the computer and use F8 to get the Safe Mode boot menu. Choose the first Safe Mode and log in,... if you see windows come up then go to display settings and and change the settings to something low like 800x600 and refresh rate of 60hz. Restart the system and you will the display and can make adjustments from there.
If either the monitor does not work on another computer or the computer does not work with another monitor,.. or if you are not able to see windows from in safe mode,.. you may have a more serious problem with the monitor or vid card.

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,
