Either the video card is bad, or the memory is bad. Replace the memory first to see if that fixes the problem. Also, if capable, reseat the CPU, which is located beneath the Keyboard.

Our acer 19in LCD monitor goes blank after initial startup and msg "Input not Supported" appears. Startup msgs are shown but once Windows XP starts, this error appears

Your resolution is set above what the monitor supports.

when computer is first starting up hit f8 to get to boot modes.

choose Enable VGA Mode: This option starts Windows in 640 x 480 mode by using the current video driver (not Vga.sys). This mode is useful if the display is configured for a setting that the monitor cannot display.

When you are booted into windows you can then set your resolution to the highest that the monitor supports which is 1440x900

Let me know if this helps.

Hello, I have a Dell D600. and the screen froze the other day. I did a hard restart and now the screen is pitch black at startup (but the systems seems to be running). Please help

The first thing to do is determine if the system actually is running or is it in a no POST configuration.
  1. If you are getting any video at all (Dell Splash Screen at boot) then try booting into the Safe Mode (F8 at boot) If you can get into the safe mode, then try a system restore to the day before the issue
  2. If you are not getting any video, then try using an external monitor and toggling it on with FN + F8 If you get video on an external display, then there is an issue with the LCD most likely and I'd try reseating the video cable under the keyboard as a place to start.
If you are not getting any video, then try this:

Sony Vaio PCG-K23 LCD Monitor will work with Ubuntu or at c:prompt but the instant Windows loads it goes black. I've uninstalled, fdisked, reinstalled and so on what seems to be 100 times to no avail. I...

hook the laptop back up to the external monitor, once it boots and has settled, I would like you to hold down the Fn key which should be at the lower left of the keyboard and tap the F7 key. This will toggle the video output from external to internal or both at the same time. I have never heard of an issue where Ubuntu will allow a video signal, but now windows. I hope this works for you.

Screen is white

You could have a video controller problem or a LCD screen problem, what you are seeing is the backlighting but no video information.
To check if you have a video problem, connect an external monitor to your laptop and bootup your laptop, if you see Windows booting up the external monitor then the video controller is OK, and your problem is the LCD screen or the video cable connection on the motherboard (may need reseating).
If you cannot fix the LCD screen then use your laptop with an external monitor.

No Display - Screen says "NOT SUPPORTED"

Turn your computer on.
When the boot screen cahnges to black start pressing F8
You should get a Windows startup screen
If you see the Windows Logo loading page, then hit the reset button and tray again.
On the Windows Start page, select Safe mode.
Press enter twice and Windows will load
Go into display properties (right click on the desktop and you will see it on the menu)
A box will pop up, select the last tab (Display Properties) there will be a slider on the left side. Move it left to around 800x600.
Select apply and then close the window.
Restart Windows normally and it should be fine.

If not, post back and we will try something else.
Hope it helps =)

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.
