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

  1. Hi,

    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?

    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....

    Would that mean the amount of Hz? because it's currently set at 1680x1050 @ 60 Hz. The thing is this: The resolution is set at the standard 22" res, which I know the monitor supports.
    Would it not support the 60Hz?
