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.

2001 malibu shifts rough


code p0113 means: IAT sensor high temp

and the solution:
The Intake air temp sensor is located inside the air flow meter and uses yellow and black wire and the black wire. IAT sensor circuit code P0113 indicating excessively high voltage or (Open Circuit) the ECM is either not seeing the correct voltages at terminals 66 and 80 under the dash at the ecm. It could be as simple as a broken wire under the insulation right at the air flow meter, Or a little worse a bad air flow meter. There are cheeper remanufactured Aair flow meters available at Nissan for your car around $150 instead of $400 like they used to be new.

Hooking up computer to philips 60pp935217 AV5 HDTV connector?


Hi Roger,

Initially, pls try lowering the screen resolution of your PC. This can be done at the Display Properties/Settings tab and then move the slider of the Screen resolution towards the left, Apply OK. In some instances, you need to also lower down the Screen refresh rates in the Monitor tab of the Advanced Properties.

If your concern has not been corrected after completion of the above procedures, then other methods can be considered.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Moved my al1716 to my computer in the bedroom. Nothin' !


What this monitor is trying to tell you is that your resolution is set to a higher degree than this monitor can support. Turn your computer off, restart then go to safe mode by tapping the F8 key or by holding down the left shift key while it is booting. Once in safe mode set your display resolution in desktop display properties dialog box to some thing easy like 800x600 16 bit color and reboot your pc. This should get you back to normal operating system where from there you can then try to find the highest support resolution for this monitor.

Scan head/carriage not parking in one spot -- keeps moving.


The scanner is having trouble getting its "white reference" usually due to dusty mirrors, but can also be the bulb losing brightness. These are not a easy machine to pull apart if your not used to it.

Good colour laser MFP, depends on volume of prints and remember colour dont come cheap, but dont use refill cartridges, Kyocera and Oki both have good Models

Reciever display changing by itself


Sounds like a bad microcontroller. First check on the function selector knob if there is one and make sure it is not stuck - move or rotate it back and forth. Also, if the remote is nearby, try removing the batteries from it.
