"input not supported" in boot acer 22" ws monitor

Q: "input not supported" in boot acer 22" ws monitor


I am using an Acer 22" widescreen monitor, (x223w) and since I have it I have been getting the "input not supported" error message while booting.
I never took the time to look it up, but today I did. I found lots and lots of solutions, but none fixed it.

What I did learn, is that many people have trouble with this monitor, and get the same error. And in a lot of the cases, it had something to do with the maximum resolution supported by the video card, and the resolution set on the monitor.

I have looked up the maximum res. of my VC, (Nvidia Geforce 8500GT) and it was 2048x1536. So why would the resolution of 1680x1050 bother it?

My OS is Windows XP

Does anyone have a solution for this?

Preferred Solution: "input not supported" in boot acer 22" ws monitor

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: "input not supported" in boot acer 22" ws monitor


its not what the video card can output, its what the monitor can handle

If you try to get the monitor to run at a higher rate than it can handle, it wont work and goes blank. this is why XP gives you the 15 seconds to agree to the change....

I have a new Acer AL1714 flat monitor. It works fine most of the time, but occasionally when switching from one user desktop to another in WindowsXP I get a bouncing grey box that says "Input Not Supported". At that point it seems there is nothing to do but reboot. It is frustrating!

Any suggestions are appreciated.

A:Acer Monitor "Input Not Supported" after changing desktops in WinXP

This morning I was playing a game called League of Legend. I had to reinstall the game due to some weird update that kept crashing the game. After installing the game, I changed the resolution of the game to 1600x640 since it was set back to default (not 100% on the resolution numbers, but it was 1600x640 and above). Once I clicked ok, my monitor displayed "Input not supported". So I decided to reinstall the game since there was no other way to fix it. Upon uninstalling the game, my desktop itself displayed "Input not supported". I thought the video card crashed or something, so I restarted my computer hoping to fix it. As soon as the Window loading screen finished, my monitor displayed "Input not supported" again but I heard the sound when it loads the User Select screen. I don't know how to go about fixing this problem. Any suggestion?

Both monitors work fine in 'Extended'

Hey folks, I was recently playing some Team Fortress 2 on PC. During a session, the visuals on my monitor were scrambled and it had the message "Input Not Supported" on the screen. Now about 15 seconds after it started, the monitor went to a full black screen. I restarted the computer, and the screen is still black. I can't boot in safe mode since I can't see any options to do so. I tried another monitor and the same results.

It is an AOC monitor, but I am sure it is not the issue, but within the tower itself, probably the video card or power supply. The computer itself is about 3-1/2-4 years old.

thanks all in advance!

A:Monitor displays "Input Not Supported"

It certainly sounds like a graphics hardware problem.

Try taking the graphics card out and if you`ve got one, use the mobo`s onboard socket although you might have to go into BIOS when you first switch it on to change the 1st display option.

The resolution may not be what you want but it`ll confirm that the add-on card is giving you the problem.

If that works, shut down and put the card back in and see what happens.

I installed Windows 10 and found some apps did not fit the monitor screen (too big). I went in and changed the monitor resolution to a larger size (windows recommended 1920 x 1080) but I tried something larger, and now the monitor has a black screen with a little box moving around which says "input not supported". Not being able to use that monitor to go in and change it back, I hooked up a flat screen t.v. which worked but Windows only showed the current monitor size (which was smaller than the original monitor. I tried the monitor on another computer I have also running Windows 10 and it worked fine. It shows the resolution as 1920 x 1080. When I plugged it back into the original computer I get the same plack screen with "input not supported" so I can't change it there. I suspect the issue is with the registry somewhere in Windows 10 on the first computer, but I have no idea really what the problem is. I've been working on this for a whole day now. You can probably tell I'm not well versed in computer technology. I just want my old monitor back (Acer K272HL) and I promise I won't mess around with it again. Does anyone know how to help me?

The easiest way out of this is to start in safe mode and remove the video driver in device manager, then reboot and let windows reinstall the driver, by default it will set it to 800x 600.

Randomly, I received a blue screen stating something like "Client side encryption is not supported by the remote server even though it claims to"

After restarting, my computer failed to start normally.(I think it failed to load the operating system?) It went to some kind of auto repairing thing to fix itself in order to startup properly. But it failed.

Hi all,

So I'm kind of stuck.. I currently have the problem where I am in an endless cycle of "loading files" -> "Windows Boot Manager" (see: How To Boot Into Safe Mode On Windows 8 (The Easy Way)).
I have tried to load all of the options -- and none successfully load.
I also end up at a OneKey Recovery as well.. unfortunately, the laptop does not have initial backup or user backup images.
I have a Windows 8 CD for repairing purposes.. however, I cannot load the BIOS/UEFI to change the boot order to load the optical drives first. I have also tried to remove the CMOS battery to fix it.. did not work. .
Also - Windows Boot Manager:
Windows Setup [EMS Enabled] -- does not load properly (leads to OneKey Recovery) Safe Mode (does not load properly) Safe Mode with Networking (does not load properly) Safe Mode with Command Prompt (doesn't load - tries to boot and load all files onto partition that is too small.. can't change partition?)

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

The games start up fine and let me go through the whole, get the game set up, thing. But when I go to play it dies.

I know it's not a hardware issuse because delta force used to work just fine. (Just got the star wars one). Also, when I go to start D.F. it pops up a little window that says I don't have the recomended 140 mb of virtual memory. I went and check and I have like 1.5 gigs of virtual memory.

Hi all,

My problem is after that I changed from an old CRT display to Packard Bell Viseo 193ws, i can't access BIOS anymore. When i turn my computer on, all i see is "input not supported".

After my Windows XP has started up, then I see the picture, and it works normally.

Now my hard disk is failing, (i have another) but i can't install windows because i cant see what im doing.

My video card is radeon 9600 PRO, mother board is ASUS A7V400-MX.

I have tried many different display drivers, Omega and ATI, but the problem stays.

The settings are ok, 1440 x 900 / 60 Hz (I can't even change the refresh rate, changing resolution does not help either).

I have googled for hours, but i just can't find any solution. If someone has any ideas they are very appreciated.

cliffs: no signal in BIOS, after OS loads, everything works fine.

Thanks in advance!

I have a really simple problem. I wanted to set a higher resolution on my monitor and hten it showed the message "Input not supported". I coudn't see anything so i turned off my computer and put in my old graphics card. I want to know how can i change back resolution on the graphics card i used when i did this.

A:"Input not supported"

Turn on the computer and start tapping the F8 function key on the keyboard. Eventually the monitor should show a stable display with a Windows start selection menu. Choose start in Safe Mode and the Windows will start with a standard 640x480 VGA mode resolution. You can then change the display resolution to what you want.

FWiW, The "Input not supported" message was most likely produced by the monitor because it could not support the resolution and/or refresh rate you had chosen. You should have waited about half a minute without touching the keyboard instead of shutting off the computer. Windows XP has a default failsafe mode when changing display settings. It will change the display properties to the new settings and then shows a dialog box with a countdown timer. The dialog box asks if you wish to accept the new settings as a permanent change. If you do not accept the changes before the end of the countdown, the settings will revert to the previous values.

Ii's probably this. Boot into safe mode (tap F8 on boot up), and set the resolution to 60-65Hz. Then reboot as usual. The new monitor probably cant handle the res it is set at now.

If that doesn't work, come back.

I am running Windows XP SP3, fully updated, on an Acer lap top PC.

I have several folders full of .mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. To do this I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

The two new columns appear, but the format of the "Duration" column appears to be "hours:minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03" for most .mp3's, when what I want to see is 'hours:minutes:seconds", e.g. "00:03:45".

This also happens for video files (.avi files), e.g. all my episodes of "Heroes" (sad, I know) have a duration of "00:42" instead of "00:42:xx".

Here are two pictures showing the problem with the .mp3's. The first is of Explorer showing the Duration as "Hours:Minutes":

My AOC E1621SWB monitor always say "Input not Support" after the Windows 7 logo... I tried running it in Safe mode and every other option i have but still it says the same thing...
Before I had that message I am installing Windows 7 64bit because what i had was just 34 bit (i just bought a kingston DDR3 4GB RAM and i have 2GB RAM also, i wanted to maximize my RAMs and everybody on the internet tells me to go 64... so that's why i did.)

I Installed the 64 bit with the Custom option because i like to build it from the ground up.. after some percent of Installation, of course my PC restarted and boom that's where the dreadful "Input not Support" message came... I tried Plugging in and out the VGA cable, the power plug and turning on and off the monitor but nothing works...
I don't know if it has any connection with the Win7 installation but as far as i can remember this was the first time it happened.

Hello all. I'll explain in as much detail as possible and I thank everyone for their help. I know my way around a computer in terms of basics, but nothing intricate. I got this PC (custom built but nothing serious: my dad put it together 3 years ago and it worked great for him. Before giving it to me he completely cleared the harddrive and bought me an OEM version of Win 7 to install. I've had it for months and had updated everything (drivers, etc).) I'm trying to get him on the phone to fill me in on the part details because they escape my memory for the time being. Onward to the problem.

Couple of days ago when I came home after letting my computer "sleep" it would refuse to come out of its sleep status. I'd force a power down, boot it back up, and at times a bit of text would show, but then the monitor would blink off and say "no input detected." Kept trying to get it back up and every now and then it would work for random amounts of time (no specific games or programs running aside from Firefox.) Sometimes I would get it to boot and then it would blue screen. However the blue screen was so quick I couldnt copy the code: it would just immediately tell me "no input detected."

I found an old monitor (one of those fat E-Machines monitors) and swapped it out. Booted the computer up and it went immediately to a blue screen and held. I will type the code below. By the way, I am typing this from my laptop as I still cannot get back onto the desktop... Read more

I had my old computer hooked up to a 22" LCD but when I got a new computer I hooked it (the old computer) up to a 17" LCD. On startup, I get the windows splash screen, then everything goes blank and I get the Input Signal Out of Range message.

I was able to get into safe mode where I set the screen resolution back to the lowest setting. I rebooted and had the same message. Now I have tried a number of times and can't even get back into safe mode. I start tapping F8 when the splash screen shows up - is that too soon?

Please advise on how to get back into safe mode and then what do I do differently once I get there. Thanks!

This has happened to be before, when I started the computer, it would show "NO INPUT", but the computer would be working, and the video card seemed to be working (looking through the case, the light were on, fan was spinning).
This is not an always bugs, happens sometimes, I usually just turned off the PC for 2 minutes and after booting it would be fine. I also thought it might be overheating or something, but after monitoring the temperature, it sticks around 30C celsius (self-modded fan works )

I have tested 3 monitors on it, and it's doing the same bug, so here is my plan of action, if you guys have any idea what I might be ignoring, please do tell me.

Change the converter
Change PS plugs that goes onto the Videocard
Unplug, clean PCI-E slot, clean videocard, replug
Change VIdeo card

Personally, before changing anything, I would spray switch cleaner in the PCI Express or AGP slot then reinsert it carefully. Dont spray too much.

If you have no switch cleaner then blow it and brush with a pain-brush.

I recently bought an AOC monitor secondhand to use as a second display on my laptop for video production on Windows 10. The monitor only has a VGA input, so I am using an HDMI output from my laptop through a VGA converter. I set it up a few days ago, and it had been working fine, but the edges of my programs were being cut off whenever I entered full screen mode. To fix this, I checked the resolution and realized that the resolution it had been set to (marked as 'Recommended' by Windows) was too small and has an incorrect aspect ratio for the widescreen monitor: 1600 x 900.

I increased the resolution up to 1920 x 1080, which has the correct aspect ratio, and now everything fits on the screen perfectly, and the image is crisper. The problem is that now there is a floating error message that reads "Input Not Support" (great English on their part) in front of what I'm trying to work on.

I've tried adjusting the refresh rate (it was at 59 Hz by default, my only other option was 60). This did nothing.

I've tried rebooting in VGA mode (or 'low resolution video enabled') and setting the resolution there, then switching back. The error message persisted in both VGA mode and regular launch.

I tried reducing the resolution all the way to the minimum and slowly increasing it. Even at the lowest resolution, there is an error message.

I tried, out of frustration, simply reverting the monitor to the lower resolution and dealing with... Read more

Hello, i have a problem and i would be very thankful for an asap responce. Here is the story: my previous monitor was a small size 4:3, 60hz. So like 2 months ago, i bought a new one. "Aoc G2460VQ6" is the name of the new one.
I have problems since it first arrived. I tried to plug it in, but it said no signal.
The wire i used isa a DVI cabel, but i had to put some thing on the tip of the DVI cabel, i dont know what its called(i dont think it really matters). It started working, but I noticed the screen was flickering. On the box of the monitor it says flicker free, and that it was a 75 hz monitor. So, i tried to put it from 60hz to 75 in display settings or something. It wasnt showing up, only 60 and below. So yesterday i tried to put it to 75hz with a program called "CRU". I tried it, and did all the things, and then i needed to restart the computer. I restarted it, but it said "input not support". Any help? I tried to restart the computer and tap F8, but it didnt to anything.
EDIT: should i connect my old monitor and see if it works and delete the program?

So I would be really happy to get some help!

Yesterday I accidentally put my computer into Sleep Mode,
Even though I meant to turn it off entirely.

Now 2 days have passed and I've still NOT been able to get it working again.

When I press the power button, some lights turn on and things start spinning.

The monitor switches on, then says "No Video Input", "Returning to Sleep Mode".

I've opened the side of my case, so I can verify that things do indeed turned on;
at least to some extent. The screen however, remains blank.

There are also no beeps of any kind either. The fans are all spinning properly.
The yellow light on the motherboard is lighted.

However, the blue light on the power button isn't blinking as it usually does.
The lights on the keyboard, (I.e. Numlock) isn't lighted up as well.

My computer specs are stated in the image attached.

My monitor is a Philips, and I know it's working properly because I hooked it up with my laptop to check.

I've tried :
- Restarting, many, many times.
- Unplugging, and then holding the power button for 30 secs - 1 minute as some forums suggested.
- Unplugging the power cords and plugging it back again.
- Turning off all the switches, and leaving it for one night to cool.
- Cleaning the entire inner case.

I started witha a barebones system and built it up from there. I worked perfectly for 3 weeks. I was playing WoW and I kept getting so memory errors and had to restart the game. Other than that the system worked perfectly untill a few days later, it simply wont boot. All of the fans are working except the one on the video card. The optical drive is lite up but it will not open. I dont not get any beeps. Here is what I tried thus far.

First I reset the CMOS by jumpers and battery removal.
2. I replaced the motherboard (still did not work)
3. Replaced the old 600w psu with the one mentioned above (still did not work
4. Replaced the video card (still did not work)
5. Replaced the memory (still did not work)

I have re- set the cpu with some OCZ thermal paste (still did not work)

I have tried to work forwards and backwards from barebones to complete and still nothing.

I do not have an onboard video option.

I had spent a decent amount of money on this system and just to have it diagnosed will cost $100 so I hope someone can help me out.

I had something like "no input" , the last time i short-circuited my Mobo. Are you sure your mobo supports the rams ( You should check for the compatibility of your board on the net, because as far as i know not all rams are supported by a particular board. if you can get us what kind of mobo you are operating maybe we could be of help.

My office just upgraded, and I can no longer use Windows XP. On this system, I was able to add a separate taskbar to facilitate quick access to commonly-browsed folder locations on our vast network, and another one expedited the launching of useful programs and lists. Each task on each taskbar was represented with a big custom icon to save eye strain. I had them installed in opposite vertical margins, and they were set on auto-hide to keep them out of the way when not being used. Just move your mouse pointer to the left or right margin, and BAM! Sorry for the cliche, but I really got used to the convenience of what I had set up, and I just don't think I can be as efficient without anything comparable.

Now there appears to be nothing comparable in the Windows 7 GUI, and it's making me sick with rage! I see only the option to put a "toolbar" on an existing "taskbar", and no option to create any additional taskbars! This cramps up your one-and-only taskbar, plus the tiny toolbar access buttons require way too much precision for anything that's supposed to be quick. When you've figured out how to bring up that ridiculous button, the list that it yields is small enough to cause painful eyestrain - nothing efficient, much less cool about this at all! I have seen customization options in other OS GUIs that may have resolved some of these issues, but I see none such in W7.

I have tried every google search string that I can think of, and found... Read more

I'm trying to do a fresh install of Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit but i can't get the installer to load.
I have access to a Xubuntu install and a OS X install.
The original hard drive Windows 7 was installed on stopped working completely. So, I've bought a brand new one.
I followed the steps I did the first time I installed Windows 7 - converting the iso to and img with OS X's hdiutil and the dd command to burn it to a USB.
This time I would just get a "please insert proper boot media" error.
I went to my Xubuntu computer (it's used like a chromebook - i'm not a big linux guy) and tried WinUSB.
These USB keys lead to a screen that had a flashing underscore a few spaces from the top of the screen.
It dawned on me that the first thing I did when I installed windows the first time was update the bios. So I tried flashing a few different BIOS versions, but none of them made a difference>
I really need help - I can't think of anything else to try
Thank you very much!

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the
html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed. 

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

A:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?

I need to always display the default audio input and audio output device currently on win7.
Would like to launch a small program on change as well or instead.
I tried to use task scheduler but was not able.

A:need "always on top icon & msg for "default audio input/output device"

Do a search on this forum. I think someone found a program to basically do what you want.

However, I just created a shortcut on my desktop to the Sound Panel/Playback section where you can change default playback devices. Go to the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound. RIGHT Click on "Sound" and then click to create a shortcut.

The audio input is another issue. If you set the default Recording device to the Stereo Mix then whatever input is used will be heard. In recording programs, select the Stereo Mix as the input and then whatever input device/port is used will be recorded. e.g. Mic, Line In, etc. Also, the Stereo Mix is needed if you want to record audio from the Internet or sites such as youtube.

Hi all,
I just resurrected my old PC from where it had been gathering dust. Upon booting, I was informed that the graphics card wasn't drawing enough power, and that it's operations had been scaled down to prevent errors.
So I carried on, planning to look into this later. After about 3 hours of use that included watching videos, my PC blanked out, and the monitor read "input signal out of range"
Attempting to restart will result in the Windows loading screen, then a flash of the BSOD, and the same error message, followed by an immediate restart.
The same thing happens when trying to load safe mode.

Can someone please help?


A:PC will not boot "input signal out of range"

Your graphics card has failed.Or an additional power plug is not being used on the Graphics card.If the card has a place to plug in a power plug from your PSU then use that, If you have an Onboard VGA port on the Motherboard (an additional Blue VGA port on the back of the computer) then remove the old GPU and use the onboard until you can replace the card.

I've found out some more since last time. I brought the monitor back to where I bought it, and it worked completely fine, so I came up with a conclusion.

It has to be something with my graphics card or something. But that is also actually a bit weird, 'cause I get the frame even while booting! Why!?

Hi TimFF,
This might be related with the UAC settings, check this thread:
give full permission for the users in program

The steps in the above thread is not recommended.
For the short name usage, we may consider to create a directory-junction from
PROGRA~1 to C:\Program Files:
With the following commands:
mklink /J "C:\PROGRA~1" "C:\Program Files"

Hey folks,

My first post on here but I'm in serious trouble. I got a "new" (to me anyway) desktop running XP today and found the audio hardware wasn't working. So I pillaged an old machine for its sound card, and inserted that onto the motherboard. Also connected the Aux and CD lines to the top of the daughterboard.

Since then, to my horror, the machine has failed to boot. All plugged in, keyboard working, screen on and being used on another box for this very post. All I get now is the usual chirps from the internal soundcard followed by a few very low notes, definitely depressing so I guess they're suggesting something's failed. There's no further action from the CPU, the fan still works, but there is no screen output whatever.

Have I fried the motherboard without realising?!

Also, ironically, the last failure tone was delivered by my speakers through the originally non-responsive audio hardware!

I'd love a bit of help on this one, because my knowledge of computers' insidey bits is pretty poor.

Many thanks,

Hi all,

This issue really bugs me, every few months it'll happen, one of my three screens (9/10 times it's the Acer), will display as a "Generic Non-PnP Monitor", with this it'll only display in 640*480 (usually 1920*1080, same as the other 2 screens).

This set up works perfectly most of the time, and has done for the last few years, but as I said it comes and goes. I've done a lot of research online and the best advice I can find is that when it happens if I unplug it all, and let the capacitors drain in the monitor and GPU then when reconnecting everything it'll work fine. I've done this before and it's not worked, I've also done it and it's worked. I've also had it in the past where it's just reverted back to how it's supposed to be mid use.

My set up:
OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1
CPU: Intel Core i7 3770 @ 3.40GHz
Motherboard: ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. CM6330_CM6630_CM6730_CM6830
Display 1: SONY TV ([email protected])
Display 2: Samsung S24B300 (1920x[email protected])
Display 3: Acer S240HL ([email protected]) <--- Displaying as "Generic Non-PnP Monitor ([email protected])"
GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7800 Series

I've got the latest drivers for all the hardware, I've got the latest windows updates for everything. I've tried older versions of the drivers for the GPU, no difference with the issue.
I've been to the Acer website to download a driver specifically for the monitor, but they haven't got one on there for this montior on this OS, j... Read more

You can try forcing the install of the vista 64 bit driver, you pick update driver then follow the yellow steps and if you get the bottom picture if its unsigned just pick install anyway.

This Monitor worked just fine in Vista. When I upgraded to W-7,
the built in driver VIA - Display - VIA Chrome9 HC IGP Family WDDM
is useless! It restricted max resolution to 800 X 600 !! Disgustingly crude
resolution. Googled for ever but found nothing workable. Lot's of sites
want to sell me Driver update service for a fee.

So, in desperation, I downloaded driver from Acer written for Vista.
Removed Windows 7 driver, and installed the Vista driver. It works fine!
I can now go upto 1366 X 768 pixels resolution.

Now every time I get Windows Update, it tries to install the unwanted
built in driver. I right clicked it and selected "hide update" option. From
now on, Windows Update should not be nagging me about the Monitor Driver.

Hello and welcome Bobby mate some system specs would be very helpful as we need to know what the system has in in components wise.

Having said that the resolution seems pretty limited and again it would be good to see the specs so that we can see why.

Have you tried changing the boot sequence inside the BIOS?

Normally pressing F2 or F12 on the computer will solve this.
