Re: says digital imput power safe mode. will not change

What you need to try doing is.. finding another cord that attaches from the computer to the monitor. Thats how I fixed mine.

I was told if the plug in is slightly bent which you probably wont be able to see, cause I couldn't that the monitor will automaticly go in power safe mode. Try that hopefully it works..

After I plugged in a new cord it turned right on.

Good Luck!!

Sounds like you need to boot up in VGA mode instead of Safe Mode

Step 1. Power Down your computer.

Step 2. Powwer on your computer and press F8 to enter Safe Mode

Step 3. Instead of selecting Safe Mode, Select VGA mode.

Step 4. Once in Windows, uninstall your graphics card for your Monitor.

Step 5. Restart your machine, when you log back in Windows will reinstall the drivers for your monitor.

The screen says imput not supported but I can hear the startup sc

You need to set your PC video resolutiotn to the native resolution of this monitor, 1440 x 900 @60Hz. You get the message because the old setting for your old monitor (crt?) is too high for your Acer. You may have to hook up your monitor and set up the new resolution. Or you boot up in safe mode, set the resolution to 640 x 480, reboot into regular mode, reset the resolution again to be 1440 x 900 @60Hz

My laptop moniter turns on as usual with the proper reading. I start in safe mode as normal..wait about 10 min and screen goes white


"I start in safe mode as normal."

safe mode is not a normal thing during your windows boot sequence :)
if your display works ok until those 10 minutes of safe mode are over i would say that reinstalling your windows operating system will most likely solve your monitor issues :)

Monitor displays "warning pc entering power saving mode

Sounds like to power settings were set too low. Restart the PC, before it gets to Windows press F8. This will send the PC into SAFE mode. You'll get a menu of which SAFE mode to select, just select SAFE mode with networking. Once in SAFE mode, go to START, Control Panel, Power Options. From there select new settings. Since this is a desktop, I would make the settings very long. Good luck

No input signal at the monitor when I plug it to a laptop, only when in safe mode I can see the desktop of laptop

When you power up the computer press F8 key then you can see safe mode and other menu enter in "enable VGA mode"
Then go to start ->control panel ->display- settings.
Change screen resolution to 1024*768
Then apply and ok.
then restart then check.
If you still get blank screen then enter in safe mode and uninstall graphic driver from control panel -> add remove program wizard or device manager.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

Computer screen says imput not supported what do i do?

i believe at boot you should hold f8 for advanced booting options, and then select safe mode, which will start the computer in a lower resolution graphix. from there, set the resolution down on the display. right click on the desktop and select properties or personalize, then look for the display setings for screen resolution. its prolly set to 1680 x 1050, and needs to be set to something around 1280x768 or something: maybe its set to a different aspect ration or just plain different size.
