Question about Acer AL1916W 19" LCD Monitor

'input not supported'

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.

Re: 'input not supported'

I think you have problem with video card or cable, not with two almost similar moitros.
You should check:
Another monitor connected to your pc (test videocard)
the VGA cable's pins

more than that info required

I believe the max resolution this LCD can support is 1440 x 900 / 75 Hz. If you set your display resolution higher then that, you will receive the input signal out of range error. Your LDC turns off to protect it self from the invalid settings. If you can not change it back once your PC boots to windows, you may have to do it in save mode by pressing F8 once you power on your PC and before the windows loading screen starts.

What resolution are you trying to run? The native resolution for your monitor is 1440 x 900, setting to that should fix your issue

I have 3 acer al1603w widescreen monitor.. it was working ok before, then i let my brothers used them. afterwhich it is displaying "input not supported". WHOAAA!?!!? what do i do? its bugging me for 3 days...

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.

How to change resulution when you get input not

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.

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.

"input not supported"

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.

Input not supported when trying to play a game

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.
