When you turn on your computer, press the F8 key to bring up the safe mode menu. Select enable VGA mode, which will put your computer into 40 x 480 mode. Once you're in windows, you can select a video resolution that your monitor will support.

Continue to get message saying "Windows can't find hard disk space, hard drive error." tried to run scan check but computer will not allow it, also says I should not use computer until this...


Try this
- reboot the computer into SAFE MODE by pressing the F8 key right after the POST messages and before the Windows loading mode. If you have never done this it may get tricky on the timing and you may have to reboot several times before you get it. If this is the case I suggest to start tapping on the F8 key after the computer gives you the POST screen.
- Once you are successful on this step, you will have a black screen showing you a choice of modes to boot on. With the up-down arrow keys select SAFE MODE (plain vanilla, no network support etc..) and click on enter.
- Your computer will boot in SAFE MODE after going thru a series of messages in the screeen. This is normal, it is just displaying the boot process. If you hava a login and password it will ask for them, if not it wll take you into a screen that will look larger than normal due to its low resolution.
- Once there click on the My COMPUTER icon to get to the windows explorer and then highlight RECYLCE BIN, right click, select empty recylce bin and click on it. This process will empty the recyle bin and potentially give your system some much needed room.
- If successful, you may want to open your Internet browser(Explorer) and delete the temp files. and also defrag your HD.

Once completed, reboot your computer normally, then run a scan check.
Also see how much space you have left on your HD, you may have to get a larger HD.

Hope this helps.

Installed Dell 1905fp monitor -- message showing "analog input - cannot display this video mode"


The native resolution of this monitor is 1280x1,024 2 60Hz, your PC video card resolution is set too high for it to display. Bootup in safe mode (hit F8 while booting up), then select VGA support, set the resolution to 1280x1,024 2 60Hz, then reboot.

My monitor says input not supported


Hi there,

Monitor says 'input not supported', means the computer is sending an incompatible display mode to your monitor. Please check the user’s manual for supported display mode or input and configure your computer to those settings. The recommended setting for LCD panel is 1024x768 resolution and you may need to change the refresh rate of the monitor to 60Hz.
In Safe Mode, fire uop regedit and ry going to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\Class\Display and delete that whole key (yes, this bascially will remove your video drivers) then reboot, when you reboot windows should start up in standard VGA mode and prompt you for the video card drivers.

The screen says imput not supported but I can hear the startup sc


You need to set your PC video resolutiotn to the native resolution of this monitor, 1440 x 900 @60Hz. You get the message because the old setting for your old monitor (crt?) is too high for your Acer. You may have to hook up your monitor and set up the new resolution. Or you boot up in safe mode, set the resolution to 640 x 480, reboot into regular mode, reset the resolution again to be 1440 x 900 @60Hz

Error: Cannot Display This Video Mode


You may have to boot into safe mode and reset the video settings to a safe setting like 1024x768.

  1. To get into safe mode, continuously press F8 while the computer is booting up.
  2. Eventually you will get a Windows XP Boot Menu.
  3. Choose the option for Safe Mode.
  4. Go to Start, Control Panel and double-click Display.
  5. On the Settings tab, drag the slider bar to 1024x768.
  6. Click OK
  7. Shut down and reboot.
If the problem goes away, then you are good. Otherwise, you'll have to boot menu again (F8) and choose Enable VGA Mode.

RectangulaR box on my screen says: input not supported


If your monitor is displaying a message, that's good news: Your monitor is not shut. What the message is saying is that either the refresh rate frequency, or the resolution you have set your video card to on your pc/laptop, is too high for your LCD (I assume) monitor, and it cannot handle these settings.
It would appear that the default refresh rate for LCDs is only 60Hhz.
Reboot your machine in SAFE MODE, pressing the F8 key repeatedly as soon as the initial POST messages disappear from the screen. Next, select Safe Mode from the different options shown.
Once the PC starts and you're running Windows, go to Control Panel->Appearance and Personalization->Adjust Screen Resolution->Advanced Settings->Adapter->List All Modes and verify that the resolution that's been set is within the range allowed by your monitor.
Your user's manual should have this information. In case you don't have this information, change it to something safe, like 800 x 600 pixels, at 60Hz refresh rate.
Close all windows, reboot, and Voila! Your monitor is back to life!
Should you wish to continue to improve your monitor resolution, then right click anywhere on an empty spot on your desktop, and choose Personalize->Adjust Display Settings, and try a higher resolution, remembering to leave the refresh rate at 60Hz.
Good luck!

Screen says mode not supported h:53.4khz v;84.ghz


You should reboot your computer. Immediately after you see the BIOS splash screen (Dell, Acer, HP, etc...) start pressing the F8 key 2 times every second. If you're quick enough, you'll get the Windows boot menu. When you see the menu, select "VGA Mode". This will boot Windows with minimal video settings which are compatible with all modern monitors.

Once Windows loads, right click on the desktop, select Properties, go to the Settings tab, and begin sliding the resolution bar up from 800x600 and clicking Apply. After each change, it'll ask you if you want to keep the settings. If you can still see the screen, click Yes. If you get to a setting where your monitor goes black and says "mode not supported", then wait 15 seconds and it'll revert to the last mode that worked. Leave it there.

Here are some typical resolutions for monitors:

17" = 1280x1024
19" = 1280x1024
19" widescreen = 1440x900
21" = 1600x1200
24" = 1920x1200

Hope this helps!
