Question about Acer AL1916W 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Input Not Supported?

Hi i have recently bought a ACER 19" LCD screen. I have installed all the latest drivers and updates for both the monitor and my Video Card but when i try and play a particular game i get a floating window box saying "Input Not Supported". This is a mystery because the game loads and plays/works fine but the little message box will not go away. This is a very recent problem, the last time i played was two days ago and the box did not show on that occasion or any before that. Any help would be muchly appreciated. Cheers

    yeah thanks for that mate, i tried that but its not a resolution problem, i have the resolution maxed out for everything that i play and have no other problems or warnings when i`m ingame or online.

    it seems that its only these two particular games which is weird because as i said it is a recent thing and it doesnt happen for any other games.

    i`ve posted at the game forum so i`m hoping i might find my solution there.

    That said i appreciate any help people might have to give.

    Cheers

Try changing the resolution in the game. If that doesn't work change the resolution in 'Control Panel' under 'Display'

Hi,

Did you install the latest drivers from the AMD (they bought ATI) website?

You can find the latest drivers for Windows XP Home here. After you install the drivers there should be no problem changing your resolution. Regarding the other socket, you must've made it so you extend your desktop onto your "second screen" (ie. the one that connects to the second socket) so you don't see your desktop on that screen but just the extension of your desktop. If you move your mouse all the way to the right you should see it pop up there. You can change it in Display Properties -> Settings -> select screen #2 and deselect the extend desktop onto monitor option.

you need to set the resolution to 1400x900, if this is not an option in the Display settings you should download the apropriate driver for you graphics card.  once you have ascertained  what make (nvidia or ATi), and model, go to one of the following for the latest drivers.
  • nvidia; http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us
  • ATi; http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx
After installation and reboot, you can then select 1400x900 screen size i the display settings.

Resolution problem on LCD


Are you saying that when you try to change the resolution it does not display 1440x900?

I would suggest downloading the drivers for the monitor as well as the latest drivers for your graphics card.

I'm guessing you used a different graphics card before now - use ATI's driver uninstaller to remove the current driver and any other drivers before installing the latest driver from ATI. They have a program made to remove their drivers that you're supposed to use every time you change cards or update a driver. Shouldn't be hard to find.

If that doesn't work, come back and we'll try the next thing.
