I don't think you can really do an HDMI to VGA or HDMI to DVI to VGA. If the monitor doesn't support DHCP, it probably won't work with the HDMI output


Please specify which cable are you using for video signal.

    In case you are getting video on safe mode than try to remove the driver in safemode and when you will go back to the normal mode try to install the latest video driver and set your display to lower the resolution down to
    1152x864 or 1024x768 and tell me the status.

Right click on the desktop screen then go to properties, or you may go to control panel and you will be able to see the display settings there

The problem is that your hertz rate is set to 75 and your acer monitor doesn't support that. Go into the display settings and change the hertz rate to 60.

I've seen this error when replacing a CRT monitor with a Flat screen.
If you have a CRT monitor around, plug it back in, and change your video settings.
Lower the resolution numbers (800x600 should be fine) and lower, or match your refresh rate. (it should have the ratings on the back of the monitor)
Find what your Acer is rated for (probably 60 to 72 Hz).
You may have to swap them back and forth a few times to get it right, but once you do get it to display, you can get it to "talk" to each other, and fine tune the display rates.

Let us know how this works.

You may want to check the output settings of your computer:
This can be done by right clicking on the desktop, going to 'properties' in xp, or 'personalize' if you are on vista
Then go to the settings tab, and set your setting to 1024 X 768
See if the message is removed. Also check your cabling! Make sure all plugs are inserted properly!

    to change the hertz setting, under the settings tab, click 'advanced' and then 'monitor'


    there change the hertz setting to 60HZ

  • Suvvy Roy Aug 07, 2008

    and yes it does seem like a hertz setting problem, so no need to change resolution! just follow the instructions and change the Hertz setting to 60 HZ

The problem is that your hertz rate is set to 75 and your acer monitor doesn't support that. Go into the dispaly settings and change the hertz rate to 60. Fixed my a couple of minutes ago.

your resulition is set too high. to fix this you need to either change it on another screen if you have one or restart your computer into safe mode. usually in safe mode it will be on the lowest setting and you will have full access to change it from there.

Input not support, Acer V193w


if the monitor is DVI conencted to PCI card, the computer will not see the monitor, on boot up, only in the Windows mode.
replace the DVI connecting with a VGA connection on the monitor, if there is no VGA connection on the monitor then you need to get a VGA monitor and connect that to theVGA port on the motherboard connector at the rear of the computer.

When your computer is starting up, hit F8 and you'll see the safe mode, safe mode with networking, etc. screen...You should see a choice that says "enable vga mode". Select that and windows will start and the os will select a screen resolution for you. After that, everything will work fine...I hope.


Good Luck!

Input not supported


You may have a video resolution selected on your computer that the screen doesn't support.

The reason you see the the initial startup message is because that is loaded from the bios, prior to the settings for the graphic card output being loaded.

Try booting the computer in safe mode and adjusting the display resolution.

'Input Format Not Supported' (please help me!)


OK try booting up in "Safe Mode" Press F8 just after Turn on, when and if ya boot into safe mode then adjust your Video settings to say 1024x768x32bit and then reboot, if all good then when you are at the desktop, then adjust the settings to whatever you require... maybe 1280x1024x32bit.. Ya all good. If this doesn't work.. try the Monitor on another PC.. see if it works... if it does.. then maybe ya Video card is going/gone "Toes up" if not, then ya got a fault in your monitor, usually some sort of Power Supply problem or the like.
