Question about Acer AL1716 17" LCD Monitor
I bought a new monitor for the computer in the livingroom (which is on cox cable and on xp). I moved my al1716 to the computer in the bedroom which in not on-line and in running on windows 98. All I get is a scrren that has the big ACER sign... then a moving panel saying " input not support" . I've never had a computer not recognize new hardware. Is it because that computer's not on-line? can I just plug it in to the cox modem for a few minutes and that will do it? Is there a place where I can go to and get the drivers with my livingroom computer, put them on floopy and load them to the bedroom computer? or a place I can contact with the serial number or something? I must've gotten drivers when I got the darn thing 1 year and a half ago, but they are buried somewhere in the piles of ... well... it could take forever. Is it a compatability issue? Ahook-up issue? A "I'm missing something obvious" issue? Any help would be appreciated.
What this monitor is trying to tell you is that your resolution is set to a higher degree than this monitor can support. Turn your computer off, restart then go to safe mode by tapping the F8 key or by holding down the left shift key while it is booting. Once in safe mode set your display resolution in desktop display properties dialog box to some thing easy like 800x600 16 bit color and reboot your pc. This should get you back to normal operating system where from there you can then try to find the highest support resolution for this monitor.
