Question about MPC Computers Envision EN 7100s 17 in. Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

I have an Envision EN 7100s monitor. It works just fine when I run the computer in safe mode, but when I try to start the computer normally the screen will go blank after the microsoft logo and say "Input Not Supported." Does anyone know what the problem is?

    I should probably explain my situation a little more completely. I'm not quite sure what happened to my computer, but it won't start up normally (I think there may be some corrupted files). I could start it in safe mode and was just going to move my files to an external harddrive and reformat the computer, giving up on any other fix. Of course now that I have an external harddrive I can't get into safe mode anymore. I get the same "input not supported" message. I read something that suggested it might be a problem with the resolution and to try VGA Mode, but since my computer freezes on start up this doesn't help. Any ideas?

Doesn't really sound like the monitor is the cause. The video driver sounds like it might be failing on load. You can try starting in safe mode, open device manager and remove the video card from the hardware list (You can also do this with add and remove hardware in the control panel of XP). Restart and let windows install fresh drivers on start up. This may help if the driver installation has been corrupted. Note that you will need the original driver disk if you want the extended options of your video card, otherwise windows will install the generic windows driver which in some cases is no different from the factory driver.

Hope this helps,

    I should probably explain my situation a little better. My computer cannot start up normally, most likely because of corrupted files, and freezes on the Microsoft loading screen. I had been able to go into safe mode and was going to move my files on to an external hard drive and try reformating my computer. Of course now that I have an external hard drive I cannot get in safe mode, I just get the same "input not supported" error message. I read something that suggested this might be a problem with the resolution and to try VGA Mode, but that doesn't work since my computer won't start up.

    In short, is there any way for me to just get back into safe mode? I really just want to get to my files if I can.

    Also, I use XP if that maks a difference.

    Okay, the symptoms you describe could be caused by multiple things, but HD corruption or damaged drivers or boot sector are the most likely cause. Inability to boot into safe mode makes HD corruption my bet though. If you have the Windows xp installation disk, you can boot from the disk and select Recovery Console from the options menu. You will be asked to select the installation to boot (yours will usually be install 1) and then asked for the adminstrator password. Once you get to the command prompt type the following:
    chkdsk /p

    Then hit enter.
    This will start the disk checker in full scan mode. After the operation is complete type:

    then reboot the computer and try to go into safemode. If this clears the problem then you may have had corruption on the hard drive (HD) and if the symptom repeats itself in short order, then you may have a failing drive. Hope this helps.

    Best Regard,

    Thank you for your help! I will have to find my XP installation disk and try this.

My laptop LCD screen is FUBAR and in order to use my computer I have hooked it up to an Envision 19" LCD Monitor. If I start Windows Vista in Normal mode , it does not recognize the Monitor. Pressing...

I would go ahead and boot into safe mode where you say it does work and then take a look. See how it detected look in device manager and see if it picked it up by it's true brand/type etc. Check the settings both of the display and on the envision itself. Check the resolution selection. It's probably picking it up as a lower res. but when it boots into reg windows may be trying to run at full res and perhaps that's what it won't do. Check to see what driver it's using. It may need the specific driver from envision and not the generic driver. It could also be a bad pin on the envision itself.

If you have another computer you can hook it up to, do that to make sure the envision is working. That way you can deduce which is the problem, the monitor or the setup in your laptop.

Input not supported

The repair shop set the PC video resolution to higher resolution to use with their monitor and did not put it back to the same resolution for your monitor which cannot handle the higher resolution. You need to lower the PC video resolution to the native reslution of your monitor which is 1280 x 1024 @60 Hz.

"Input Not Supported" message on monitor at boot

Sounds to me like the input has gone out of the boundaries the monitor supports. IE the refresh rate is too high frequency (normally 60 to 72 Hertz for LCD's) or the screen resolution has been set too high.

Go into safe mode and set it back to 1024 X 768 at a frequency of 60 Hz, once back into windows proper you can try higher resolutions and change your refresh, if the screen goes black or displays a message "Out of Bounds" or similar it should revert after 15 seconds if left alone.

Have fun

Screen becomes increasingly white

Your PC is overdriving the monitor and it is protecting itself from harm.
Start in SAFE mode (press F8 wile booting) and SAFE mode to see if it works in Windows DEFAULT setting. Then Reboot and readjust to something sensible (1280*1600, 32bit, 60Hz)

My guess is that MSoft pushed a patch or SP to your box and IT replaced the dll your monitor was using.

Goto mfg and DL and reinstall the correct drivers again

Good Luck!
