Change the Display Settings
The display settings on your computer may not be compatible with the monitor. To fix this, you need to change the display settings on your computer.
First, you need to check your monitor's resolution and refresh rate. The resolution is the number of pixels that your monitor can display. The refresh rate is the number of times your monitor can refresh the image on the screen. If either of these numbers is too high (e.g., a much higher resolution), it can cause the "Input Not Supported" error. The monitor hardware could not support various resolution settings.
To Change the Resolution
- Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Display.
- In the "Display" dialogue box, click on the "Settings" tab.
- In the "Settings" tab, find the "Resolution" drop-down menu and select a resolution that is compatible with your monitor.
To Change the Refresh Rate
- Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Display.
- In the "Display" dialogue box, click on the "Advanced" button.
- In the "Advanced" dialogue box, find the "Refresh Rate" drop-down menu and select a refresh rate compatible with your monitor.
