Usually this pertains to the maxium resolution of your monitor-make sure the resolution on your graphic card is set to the same 1440 x 900, or else the monitor will ask you to change it to back to the 1440 x 900.This also includes games, make sure you set your game resolution in 1440 x 900, if its not possible then check the manual of your monitor and then see if there is a auto resolution option.

As you computer boots up, press the F8 function key several times. Then select boot up in Safe Mode - go to Control Panel - Display - Settings and change the screen resolution lower such as 1024 X 768 - Apply and Shut down computer.

First try shutting system down, unplug tower for 1 minute and restart. Give it time to come up and if that doesn't work, shut it down again and try to start in "safe mode" do you get any screen at all? If you can start in safe mode try going to "control panel'", "device manager" then "personaliztion", and adjust your resolution. If you can't adjust your resolution in safe mode do a "system restore" back to when monitor worked.

Input not supported - floating gray message Win 7


Hi,
You haven't specified what monitor you use but the gray message is most likely due to your screen not being able to handle the high resolution. Try setting it to a resolution below 1600 x 1200.
Best wishes,

GX520 screen display message: cannot display this video mode


This means that the windows setting you have set can not display on your current monitor. There are two ways to fix this, one is to boot the computer in safe mode by pressing f8 after the POST screen and change the resolution and the other is to plug the computer into a different monitor to see if supports that resolution and then change the resolution in windows to a lower setting.

In case you don't know how to change the resolution in windows, follow below.

Right click on the desktop
Properties
Settings at the top
Move the slider to 1024x768
Click ok

Try rebooting. If that still doesn't work, try another resolution.

This can sometimes mean the screen resolution is set to high for what the monitor can handle. Change the resolutions to a lower setting and see if that takes away the error message.

Using HpDeskjet f2280 All-In-One Printer, Scanner, Copier. When scanning have error message "Internal DRS Error 1500:c0:3001


You need to change the resolution on the scan to 200 dpi. I submitted this to HP and that is what they told me to do. It works. The steps to do it vary according to your HP Solution Center software version. Just find the "Scan to PDF" settings. In my case, I had to create a new "default" profile because it wouldn't let me modify the installed setup without saving it under a new name.

I have an error message on my screen which ios moving around. It says - 'not optimum mode. Recommended mode : 1280 x1024 60Hz'.


Sounds like you have an LCD monitor. LCD monitors look best in their native resolution. Yours must be 1280x1024. You need to (assuming this is a Windows PC) right click on the desktop and choose Personalize, Display Settings (Vista) or Properties, Settings (XP or older). Set the slider to 1280x1024. It'll confirm the change and then the message should never reappear.
