All I can say is WOW! I have been using my pc with my monitor for months and I was installing a new printer and must have wiggled something loose, and all I was getting out of my monitor was "INPUT NOT SUPPORTED." So I came to this forum, and low and behold, if you DO NOT have another monitor to hook up to your PC, please do this in the sequence I have listed as this was my fix

1. Power down PC (you will have to do a cold/hard shut down by pressing the power button as you cannot see your desktop due to this message).
2. Unplug monitor from the power strip *and* from the back of the monitor itself, freeing the cord completely
3. Plug power cord into monitor *FIRST*
4. Plug power cord into the power strip
5. Turn on monitor power *FIRST*
6. Turn on power to PC

This *hopefully* will get you up and going. If not, then you will need to try to get another monitor to adjust the display settings (60 hz and 1440 x 900 @ 32 bit). You can get to this by (I have Vista):

1. Left click mouse anywhere on desktop
2. Go to properties
3. Go to display settings

Once you have completed this (again, hopefully with an extra monitor you have somewhere so you are able to see what you are doing) then do the entire sequence up above again by shutting down, unplugging power cord completely to monitor, then powering monitor on first before PC, this is a hugely important step. I really hope this helps someone. I have spent the past 3 hours wanting to yank my hair out!

You can try updating your drivers. Go to your control panel and search for "device manager". Then find the audio devices section and click on each of them one at a time and select "search for driver updates". This should help with your problem.

If it's Acer Technical Support you're looking for, better stop looking. Acer Inc. barely tries to do any after-sales service effort. Unlike most other decent PC manufacturers, they don't have an online "live/real time" support--notwithstanding replying to your email.

I've actually tried sending email to Acer Global Support, Acer Pan-Am Regional Support and Acer Malaysia, all for nothing.

I agree. Re imaging or reinstalling the windows operating system seems like the only fix at this point since it seems like the anti virus isn't picking up the virus. Back up the files on an external hard drive and just reinstall windows.

Check to make sure that power is reaching the power supply of your unit. If it is and still does not work, then the issue is with the supply that needs replacement. Common malady.
