I've just bought a new tower, hitched it up to the monitor - when I turn it on, it comes up, Windows begins, and then the monitor says the input signal is wrong, asks to have the resolution chnaged (I've...

The best way to solve this problem is to Boot windows with a reduced resolution of 800x600.
To do this, If you turn the PC off without properly shutting it down the option should be available if you press F8 when windows states "Your computer was not shut down properly"
Otherwise keep tapping F8 from the time you press the power on button and the boot options should appear.
Then select the option "Boot windows with reduced resolution quality "800x600"
Once windows boots up go to the Display properties by right clicking on the desktop and selecting display.
You should be presented with a window which customizes your desktop and allows you to change display resolutions. Open the window which allows you to change resolution and select the advanced option. Then you should be presented with another window which is the display driver properties. In this window select the monitor tab and make sure the box which say's "hide modes which this monitor can not display" is Ticked and this should solve your problem no matter which resolution you chose.

Bought new aoc monitor and plugged in and all I get a floating screen safer saying "input not support".

Your display resolution is set to something outside the range your AOC supports.

Start Windows in VGA mode (pick that option from the startup menu you get when you press F8 after the manufacturer's logo comes when you turn the computer on). Then set the display mode to 16-bit color and 800X600 resolution. This will allow Windows to start up next time with settings just about every monitor can handle.

Once WIndows is up and running, make sure you change your display settings to something the monitor can handle. Specs are in the manual or on the manufacturer's website, but resolution of 1024X768 should be another safe choice. You should also think about installing any driver software supplied with the monitor.

Monitor color display problem

Go to the control panel. Click on display. The display applet is your next stop. The display applet is your central location for all of your display settings, including resolution, refresh rate, driver info., and color depth. The display applet has 5 tabs: Thmes, Desktop, Screen Saver, Appearance, and Settings. The 5th tab is where you make adjustments that relate directly to your monitor and video card. Look at the Settings tab. At the bottom of the dialog box, you'll see 2 options. Screen Resolution and Color Quality. By moving the Screen Resolution slider, you can change the resolution. The most common resolutions are 640x480, 800x600, 1,024x768, and 1,280x1,024.Your system may have more or fewer resolution options.

The color quality is the number of colors displayed on the screen .You can change the screen resolution with a simple slider and adjust the color depth from 4-bit all the way up to 32-bit color.

Running a 32-bit color gives a nice, realistic tone to images, and many games insist on it.

Clicking the Advance button opens another dialog box with 4 or more tabs.

The monitor tab gives you details about the currently installed monitor and enables you to make changes to the driver and the refresh rate.

After you make your changes to your monitor and it still is not working properly, it must be your video card which is not seated.
In layman term, your video card is not plugged in firmly in the slot!!
