Just got a proview monitor 780 with an advent tower ,we turned it on was working fine. We tried to adjust the screen resolution by desktop and it says mode not supported and we do not know how to fix it,...


You'll need to start Windows in VGA mode and adjust the display settings to a resolution supported by your monitor (preferrably it's native resolution, which can be found in the manual).

To start in VGA mode press the F8 key repeatedly, say every second, when the computer starts - eventually a boot menu will appear with an option to start in VGA mode. If VGA mode is not available, your second choice is Safe Mode.

Please come back and rate the solution if helped or post a comment for further assistance.
Thank you for using FixYa, the community-based help site :)

It says no signal in vga mode


This means that there's no VGA source connected (i.e . a computer, a hard disk player, etc), if you want to use this input, you have to get a VGA cable (male to male DE-15 connectors at both ends) to connect both devices.

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.

Trouble connecting Insignia HDTV 19" to my macbook pro


One of the first things you may notice about your new big-screen HDTV is that it has more connections for video than your old TV ever dreamed about. It probably has two or three HDMI connections, maybe a DVI connector, a VGA connector, and at least one component video connection. And those are just the connections most commonly used for high definition.
It’s shame to let all those connections go to waste. Your Mac just happens to be sitting nearby; why not hook it up to your new HDTV? It's actually a pretty easy task. A few lucky souls won't even need an adapter; for the rest of us, at least one adapter will be necessary.
Pick the Right HDTV PortFor best quality, your HDTV's HDMI or DVI ports are the preferred connection method. Both are capable of the same digital quality. The only practical differences are the style of the connector and the fact that HDMI supports video and audio in a single connection.If it has one, another option is to use your HDTV’s VGA port. The VGA connection isn't as good as the HDMI or DVI method, but as long as your TV supports full resolution via the VGA port, you'll be hard pressed to notice the difference.Mac Pro, MacBook Pro, Mac MiniMac Pros, MacBook Pros, and Mac Minis have standard DVI connectors. Mac Minis and MacBook Pros have a single DVI port; Mac Pros have at least two DVI ports.If your HDTV has a free DVI port, then all you need is a standard DVD cable; no adapter is necessary. But in all likelihood, you'll need to connect your Mac to your HDTV using either an HDMI or VGA connection; both options require an adapter. If you choose VGA, you can use the adapter that came with your Mac.If you choose HDMI, you'll need a simple adapter, which is available from multiple sources. The adapter may be a cable with a DVI connector on one end and an HDMI connector on the other, or it may be a small adapter that has both types of connectors, but no cable. Either type will work fine.iMac, MacBookiMacs and MacBooks have a mini DVI connector for hooking up external monitors or TVs. You'll need at least one adapter, maybe even two. At a minimum, you'll need a mini DVI-to-DVI adapter. You may also need a DVI-to-HDMI or DVI-to-VGA adapter, depending on which port on the HDTV you choose for the connection.Make the ConnectionOnce you determine which, if any, adapters you need, and have the necessary cable to reach from your Mac to the HDTV, turn off both the HDTV and the Mac. Connect the cable between the Mac and the HDTV.Turn the HDTV back on first. It doesn't need to be set to the connection the Mac is on, but it must be powered up first, so that when it boots, your Mac can recognize the TV and the resolution it needs. Once the HDTV is powered up, turn on the Mac.Your Mac should recognize the format and resolution of the TV, and automatically select the native resolution of the TV for running the video. In a few seconds, you should see the Mac desktop on the HDTV.Over or UnderscanYou may notice that the Mac's desktop appears to be slightly larger than the HDTV's screen (its edges are cut off); this is called overscan. Or, you may notice that the desktop doesn't occupy all of the HDTV's screen real estate (there are dark areas around the edges); this is called underscan.You can usually correct either issue by making adjustments on the HDTV. Check the HDTV's manual for information on making scan-related adjustments. They may be called overscan, underscan, dot-by-dot, or pixel-by-pixel. If your HDTV has a dot-by-dot or pixel-by-pixel capability, give this a try; it should eliminate any over or underscan issues. Some HDTVs only offer these special scan controls on specific inputs, so be sure to connect to the corresponding input on your HDTV.Time to Watch a MovieOnce you have your Mac and HDTV working together, it's time to kick back and watch a video from your Mac. Be sure to check out the QuickTime HD trailers for a sense of what HD and your Mac is capable of. Enjoy!

I am trying to hook up my computer to the insignia 42" tv but i can't get it to come up -- i it on VGA and it is saying mode not supported.


I know when you plug a computer into a projector, you have to not only set it up on the projector, but on the computer as well. Make sure the computer is set up for one of your multi-screen modes as well as the tv.

Monitor says mode not supported


Yes the resolution your trying to display on your TV is not supported by your TV so you computer is warning you before doing damage to your TV. there are certain modes you can use and calling the manufacture or reading the manul will tell you what modes you can place this monitor in and then change it in the display menu of you operating system. the monitor is not the problem its the mode you in is not supported by your monitor so to not risk it your computer is telling oyu that is not supported so please look at the manual and go with the support it tells you.
