When windows loads right-click on the desktop and select properties. From properties select settings and there is a slide to adjust the resolution near the bottom of the screen.
Alternatively you could try tapping F8 as the system opens and use 'last known good configuration' from the menu

I have problem in my lg lcd monitor when start computer windows loading then il say out of range 53.5Hz/85Hz. i don't know how to solve that problem.


Sounds like the resolution is set to high which is why that message would come up. When you turn on your computer, keep pressing the F8 button. It will bring you to a menu. Choose "Safe Mode" and press enter. When you get into windows go into the display settings in the control panel. Then go ahead and set the resolution to 640X480. After you do that go ahead and restart the computer and let it boot up normally. That message should go away and once you get back into windows you'll have icons that look bigger then normal. At that point change the resolution to 800X600, if it takes that then try 1024X768 if you want to.

If after you are in safe mode and change the resolution and that error message comes up then you'll need to download the video drivers for your computer and reinstall them.

Cannot Display This Video Mode... Optimum resolution 1680X1050 60Hz. This is all I can see, How can change the resolution back to resolution that I can display?


Reboot your PC and press F8 just before Windows loads to get it to load using safe mode, which you select from a list (You may have to continuously press F8). Once you have loaded in safe mode, select the correct resolution for your monitor then reboot the PC normally. You should now be able to see the screen correctly.

QUESTION: Monitor says:


Reboot your computer and press the F8 key right before you see the XP loading splash screen. You should get a menu that lists things like safe mode and vga mode. Select the vga mode option and hit enter twice. This will boot windows into 640x480 resolution and will allow you to change the resolution back to 1024x768 at 60hz

It says "input not supported" whenever i change the resolution higher than 1280 1080..i changed my vga card to my onboard one...cause at least here i can see everything clear with the resolution of 1280...


hi there,
looks like windows does not know how to handle the monitor.
You may try to disable the onboard graphic card in the BIOS before
hooking up the monitor to the nvidia card. then try to run windows in safe mode(by pressing F8 when booting up), it'll run windows with the lowest available resolution, which will be supported by the monitor.
Now download appropriate driver for monitor, install and reboot.

That should do the trick

good luck

My w17e monitor says "input not supported"


Not quite sure what the question is that you have not already answered for yourself.
That monitor's maximum resolution is given as 1440 X 900 at 60Hz and installing a more powerful video card won't change that.

I have connected my old dell laptop to this TV with VGA cable and audio cable and it worked with no problem. Have new Acer Aspire one netbook- connected to computer with same cables - can see windows...


First, you want to make sure the laptop's internal/external display mode is set properly. On Acer netbooks, this is usually changed by holding the "Fn" key, and pressing "F5". Either the TV or the computer display should flicker when you do this. There are 3 modes:

1 Computer only
2 TV Only
3 Computer and TV

If changing between thos emodes doens't work, continue on.


I am going to assume you are running Windows XP. Please correct me if I am wrong.

To display your desktop on an external monitor, you'll need to change/check some settings. Your netbook is most likely attempting to set it's display settings automatically, but it is expecting a computer display, not a television, so the resolutions and refresh rates are conflicting. That's why it will only display on one and not the other. Before Windows loads, the netbook is using a very low resolution,so it displays on the TV. Once Windows loads, it switches to some non-standard resolution that your TV cannot display and defaults back to your netbook screen.

The solution is to find a resolution that your television will display:

1.Right-click the desktop, and then click Properties.

2.In the DisplayProperties dialog box, click the Settings tab.

3.Click the Display list and select your external monitor (..the TV. It will most likely be display #2).

4.Select the Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor option.

5.Select 640x480 in the "Screen Reolution" section for Display #2.

6.Click Apply or OK.

Note: If you see the background change on your television, mmove your mous there to make sure it's working. If it DOES work, go back to the "Screen resolution" section for Display #2 and find the highest resolution your television will display

Why can't my computer change screen resolution


The resolution is dependant on the VGA card
(speed and on board ram) if u are using one.If u are using a video card have u loaded the drivers.
If u are using the mother board video check the specs you may need to allocate more ram to the video via the cmos.
Check the manufactures specs on the motherboard and or video card u may need to upgrade to a newer agp or pci video card.

Black screen on my LG Flatron lcd 563le


I solved the problem myself by disconnecting the monitor from the computer and then I unplugged the computer. I restarted the computer in position fail safe (F8) and tried to change the monitors resolution back to origin, failed to do so and rebooted instead. When Windows loaded up the problem was gone! Yipeyiiiii!
