Question about Dell Computers & Internet

Open Question

I have a Dell S2009W monitor. I tried to change the resolution settings in an online game that I play to a finer resolution. It didn't work...lol. I get a an error message that the "timing" is incorrect. The error message is being sent from the monitor and reads: "Your current input timing is not supported by the monitor display. Please change your input timing to 1600x900@60mhz or any other monitor listed timing per the monitor specifications". The problem is that every time I try to launch this game i get the error, and I don't see how I can change my settings since the monitor is now set for something it can't support. I have tried to change the display options in properties for that particular app bot it is still trying to load with the improper "resolution/timing" i had selected. My regular window's display is fine. Any suggestions?

If the monitor came with a drivers or profile disk, make sure to use that. Also, make sure the video card can run at that resolution. Check with the system or video card manufacturer.

You may want to post what kind of (a) system (for instance, "HP Pavilion D1321" (to make one up) ) and/or video card (from display properties - "Plug and play monitor on nVidia MX400") as well.

You don't specify your machine type, or the operating system, but let's assume a desktop computer and Windows XP...

Was the monitor recognized properly by the video driver?

Go to Display Properties, settings, advanced, monitor and see if Plug and Play monitor is installed. All modern graphics cards talk to the monitor to discover it's capabilities and should adjust the available resolutions so that the monitor's native resolution is available for choosing.
If some other monitor is listed there, change it to Plug and Play monitor. If still having troubles, you can do two things:
- update the video driver for your graphics card
- find the monitor's .inf file (it should be on a CD that comes with the monitor, or can be downloaded from DELL site), and install this instead of the Plug and Play monitor or whatever you have in your monitor setup (as above, go to monitor - properties - update driver).

SOURCE: my computer display screen starts with the message

You need to set your PC video resolution to this monitor resolution, which is 1920x1080@60hz. You can do it by bootup in safe mode (hit f8 key while booting up), then select boot with VGA, once bootup, set the new resolution 1920x1080@60hz or something lower such as 1280x768 for now, reboot in regular mode, and reset resolution to 1920x1080@60hz. You may have to install driver if the 1920x1080@60hz does not show up in the list.

Hi, I have this problem with my dell inspiron N 4010 laptop. Whenever i want to play games on my laptop it either crashes down or after the game is over i get a "Optimum resolution error...


The LCD monitors and laptop monitors nowadays have a 'optimum resolution'. The monitor likes to work at a pre-defined resolution.
Games play at a resolution previously set. Usually this differs from the optimum resolution of a LCD/LED screen. Then this error message will appear.
However, crashing of the computer might happen due to other reasons.
*Defective RAM *Not-so-good VGA *Viruses

You have to make sure the above problems are not the reason for crashes.
Also try playing somewhat older games. If the problem occurs due to your VGA not supporting the new games, older games will work fine.
Try these suggestions and let us know.
Good luck, and thanks for using FixYa!

Trying to download/play games but get this message: Input not supported - then my computer FREEZES and I have to reboot. This a brand new Dell Computer (but not monitor - monitor is 6 years old).


This is cause the game you are trying to play is configured to play in a high resolution but your Monitor not supporting this resolution. If you havent try to play older games, try to play an older game and see if this is happening again. Thanks. Please Rate my Solution.

Lost the screen resolution 1600X900. How do I get it back? Its a Dell S2009W. Worked fine until I had computer problems. Now all my photo people are fat.


You can set the resolution on the computer. Right click an empty space on the desktop and then click Properties. In the properties dialog box click Settings. Now use the slider to change the resolution. Click apply.

Upgrading graphics card


according to the manufacture your card has the resolution up to 2048 X 1536 that is higher than what the monitor is telling you to set your resolution to. try going into your display options and ajust the resolution down to 1600 X 900. Also since your monitor is a dell an new it should come with an set-up disk for that monitor that should once intalled set the monitor to the correct graphics setting for you so you do not have to go through and do it manually. did your come with a disk? If not here is the link to download the drivers for your monitor.

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.
