Question about Acer AL1716 17" LCD Monitor
Hi when I plugged in my new display theres a sign moving back and forth that says : input not supported? I dont understand what the problem is pleeeease help me im going crazy
I reinstalled XP (had to nuke the old one with Linux as the original XP CD won't overwrite a later version) so I knew the system worked, cable was good. I got a default video setup and the "input not supported" message if I tried to change to a higher resolution. Got the motherboard software (Asus P4S533-MX) and ran it. There is no separate video card and the video comes from the motherboard. Seems to work.

Chances are your Winders resolution is not supported. Start Winders in "Safe Mode" and reduce the resolution on the monitor.
You can do this by right clicking the desktop, selecting properties, Settings tab. Adjust the slider to a lower resolution. Also, be aware that flat panel LCD monitors to not use refresh rates the same way the old CRT monitors did. Look in the manual that came with your monitor and find the "Native Resolution" for it. This will tell you the optimal settings for resolution and refresh rate. If the rate is set improperly, you'll get a very fuzzy output. If it is too far out of whack, you'll get nothing but an error message like you are getting now.
