General :: Input Not Supported Message When Monitor Is Powered Off Then Back On?

Mar 27, 2010

I've been getting a message on my monitor where "Input not supported" is floating around. This only happens when I manually turn the monitor off and then later turn it back on. Leaving the monitor on and allowing it to go to the screen saver doesn't seem to cause the issue (but I prefer to turn the monitor off if I'm going to be away from the computer for any length of time).

Acer X203w monitor
Radeon 9600 Pro Video card
Linux Mint 8 (Helena)
Resolution 1680 x 1050 (16:10 - Preferred native resolution for the monitor)
Refresh Rate 60hz


I just had it happen again. I tried unplugging the DVI cable from the back of the computer and then plugging it back in. The monitor then displayed the desktop properly. I'm not sure if that makes a difference or not in what I may need to change settings-wise.

Debian :: Input Not Supported Floating On Screen On Boot Up

Oct 14, 2010

Brand new to Linux. Just installed Debian 5.0.6 (64-bit). Upon booting up, the screen is all black with a gray floating screen that says "Input Not Supported". My guess is that the video card is not supported by Debian, but maybe somebody knows a way around this problem... (I know for a fact that both video card and LCD work fine in Windows XP.)

My hardware:
* Video card: ATI Radeo HD 4850
* LCD: Acer V193W

Ubuntu :: Gateway FPD 1500 Monitor Not Supported

Apr 22, 2010

I was running Ubuntu 8.10 on what used to be a server & is now serving as a stand-alone Ubuntu machine. It's got an MSI motherboard with a Pentium 4 3.2 Ghz processor & 2 Gig RAM. The video card has DVI & VGA outputs & this is where the problem begins. The monitor is a Gateway FPD 1500 1024x768 flat panel & originally appeared not to be supported by Ubuntu but I discovered if I simultainously connected both the flat panel via DVI and my shared VGA monitor (the VGA monitor serves another Linux box and an old WIN 98 machine via a switching box) I could get the display to first show on the VGA and after login it would appear properly on both. But as support for 8.10 is ending I upgraded to 9.10 via the update manager.

Now if I try to boot up using either the DVI Gateway flan panel alone or with it and the VGA connected, the machines hangs after login. However, if I disconnect the the DVI Gatteway monitor, the machine boots normally. Obviously, the necessary driver was removed during the upgrade but I can't find a Ubuntu driver for this monitor & connection type, does this mean I am stuck with it like this? I would prefer to use the flat panel as the picture is easier on the eyes and the VGA monitor is needed for other machines. I also tried a DVI to VGA adaptor and it wouldn't work meaning the monitor is DVI only.

General :: Experimental Linux Install Using An Old Celeron Powered PC?

Mar 20, 2010

Yes, I was all excited when I plugged in an old dusty PC and found it still alive with a 32 gig hard drive & 260 Megs of RAM with an open slot for more memory, fit for my first Linux system. Then I navigated to device manager and found it was powered by a celeron, which was kind of a bummer.Anyway, can I get by with this setup? I'd like to use the slackware distribution, and my main purpose is to learn to administer a LAN, starting w/ 2 local clients, & a server that also runs Apache.

Hardware :: Dell Monitor 1909W Is Not Supported During CentOS5 Install

Feb 24, 2010

I am now installing the CentOS5.4 with a DVD on a Windows machine. The video card is ATI Radeon HD 3450, and monitor is Dell 1909W. During the install, after recognizing the ATI card, and starting the xserver, the screen came up with a message saying " The current input timing is not supported by the monitor display.
Please change your input timing to 1440X900@60Hz or any other monitor listed timing as per the monitor specification. "

However, in Windows XP the monitor is configured as 1440X900@60Hz, which works well. Due to this problem, the GUI installation cannot proceed. And how can I fix this problem if I manage to install in the text mode.

Ubuntu :: Monitor Input Signal Out Of Range / Fix It?

Nov 28, 2010

I basically destroyed my laptop a couple of years ago. Windows XP wouldn't even start but it didn't come with an installation disk. I tried recovering it but it just died. So a few months ago I put a box of thing on top of it which broke the screen! I was going to chuck it out until I stumbled upon a page which told you you could use it as a web server.

I decided to use it to host my website. I installed ubuntu without a problem however it wasn't until I was about to start it up I found out it was against BT's terms and conditions!! So since I installed ubuntu I thought I might as well make use of it and use it to render my files. When I went to turn it on for the second time and plugged it into the monitor it said input signal out of range!

I can see the login screen but I can't move the mouse or anything. I can't access the terminal, how can fix this?

Ubuntu Installation :: Can Not Run Live Cd Monitor Input Out Of Range?

Nov 7, 2010

this has happened with a few different attempts of ubuntu based distros lately ... i try to boot a live cd it gets to where it starts loading and the monitor pops off and says input out of range ... im aware that this is a known bug with xorg choosing either the wrong resolution or refresh rate ... but what the heck are we supposed to do , i can't get far enough into the boot process that i can open a terminal and try to bypass xorg ... so will all future distributions of ubuntu just be out of the question for me ? if you ask me what needs to be done is make the installer ASK what resolution you want to attempt to boot at .... similar to what puppy does

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Microphone Works Only After Switching To Another Input Setting And Back

Ubuntu :: Gnumeric Wont Save - Message "operation Not Supported"

Oct 27, 2010

Gnumeric 1.10.1. I tried editing a .xls spreadsheet with gnumeric and I came across the message "operation not supported".

I tried running Gnumeric from terminal to see if there was any more info regarding the save, but it just outputted that one message "Operation not supported" and that was it.

The .xls file is on another partition so I figured maybe Ubuntu mounted the partition in read-only, but no - I can edit other documents on the partition.

I right clicked on the .xls file to see the permissions and it says Owner Group and Others are all read+write.

I uninstalled and reinstalled gnumeric, but no change.

Hardware :: Converting HDMI Computer Output To VGA Monitor Input?

I have a small 'nettop' computer that only has a HDMI output. The only monitors I have only have VGA input. Is there a way to use a HDMI-to-VGA or HDMI-to-DVI + DVI-to-VGA connection setup to hookup this computer to my monitor?Let me make it clear that I am not looking for a high-quality, high-definition display. This is going to be hooked up to a monitor only until I have the system up and running and then it'll be a ssh-only headless server

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Error Message "The Stream Is Encrypted And Decryption Is Not Supported"

Nov 6, 2010

1. Can I download/use 'Spotify' on Ubuntu as i had an account on my old XP PC? If so how.

2. Some songs that I was able to play on XP don't seem to work on Ubutnu. My downloaded songs do work, however, songs that were burnt via Windows Media player from CD don't. The error message is "The stream is encrypted and decryption is not supported".

3. I have all my songs on an external hard drive connected to my Ubuntu PC. I've heard about Ubuntu one. Does this mean I could move all my songs onto this Ubuntu one account and then be able to access/play these songs from a XP PC upstairs?

Fedora :: No Monitor Input During Boot, Unable To Enter Text Mode From X Window

Nov 24, 2009

I installed Fedora 11 on my system (see below) using the i686 DVD. The graphical install worked just fine, and after the system booted back up, the X server was working very well.

There is no boot text. On the other system with Fedora 11, I can see the boot text scroll by in the window and/or a progress bar at the bottom of the monitor during the boot sequence. On this system, the monitor says "No Input", and nothing appears until the login prompt for the X window. I am able to enter the BIOS configuration page and navigate through it without any issues. I can also edit the grub commands before Fedora loads without a problem.

If I boot in text mode, no login prompt appears. If I wait long enough, the monitor enters the power save mode since it is not receiving a signal. I am able to log in to the system with my user name and password, and then start the X server. Once the server starts, the monitor turns back ON and all is well.

From the X window, I use the CTL+ALT+F2 key to enter text mode. The monitor stops responding. If I press the ENTER key a couple of times, then press ALT+F7, I can briefly see the text window with a couple of login prompts before the X window starts responding again.

How can I get the text mode to work? Why is there no input to the monitor when booting?

Ubuntu :: DVI: Cannot Display This Mode Message On Monitor

May 4, 2010

I have a Dell monitor attached to a Dell laptop. I am using Ubuntu 10.04 x64.

Latitude E6500 : Intel Core 2 Duo P8800(2.66GHz,1066MHz,3MB)
Base Options : 256MB Nvidia Quadro NVS 160M Graphic Card 1 S
Display : 15.4in Widescreen WUXGA (1920X1200) 2CCFL
Dell 2001FP (attached using DVI)

When I try to boot into Ubuntu with the monitor attached I get a DVI: Cannot Display this Mode message on my monitor. I can boot into Ubuntu just fine if I detach the monitor. Have tried with VGA, but to no avail. I have the latest and greatest Nvidia drivers downloaded from the Nvidia web site. Googling indicates that this is a Dell problem, however, I am not sure about this. It worked just fine on my previous laptop (IBM T61) and Ubuntu 9.10, so I guess it has to do with the laptop and not Ubuntu 10.04.
