I bought an acer 1916wab 19" widescreen, not sure this question belongs here, but all I get after windows starts is a message saying 'input not supported'. I also noticed a sticker on the base of the monitor saying 'for Windows vista'. I am running Windows XP professional version 2002. Will this monitor work with my system (446MHz, 320 ram)? How do I get it to work?
I also have an Acer AL1916WAB and have a "floation" error message that says "Input not supported". The problem is that I cannot view anything on the screen to be able to get into the control panel. The screen just remains black.

Sounds like somebody messed with the monitor setup on the monitor controls. Check the manual to set it up correctly. If they changed the monitor's Frequency settings, the problems you are having will occur. Gotta set them back to 70Hz and check the other settings. If you need a manual, get back to me with the exact model number of the monitor.
Try starting Windows in Safe Mode.
During boot, before windows starts loading, just keep tapping F8, until a menu appears in which you can select Safe Mode.
In Safe Mode, set the resolution to a safe, low value in the control panel.
Then reboot normally, and everything should work fine.
First install another monitor so Windows will load. Then right click on "My Computer" and select "Properties", then click on the "Hardware" tab and click on "Device Manager" button. In the list and click on the "+" sign next to "Monitors" then right click on the monitor in question and select "Uninstall", then click "OK" and close all windows and "Shut Down" your PC. Install the monitor in question again and start your PC and wait 10 minutes or so and XP will set up the monitor like it's the first time you installed it. I hope I understood your issue and Good Luck.
what you may need to do is find an accepted screen resolution, as your screen is 19" widescreen and your notebook will be set for a normal monitor display, so either try the auto button on the screen or look at the properties of your graphics card om the notebook to find supported screen resolutions for extended displays.
the game will need to be set to the same screen resolution as your monitor or the best that suits, beccause of it being widescreen, so look in the graphic or video settings in the game, or change the resolution of your monitor to suit the games highest setting.
This is done by right clicking on your desktop, down to properties and then the settings tab in the next window and then move the slider at the screen resolution box.
