View Full Version : [ubuntu] Input Not Supported

December 23rd, 2009, 10:44 PM
I have tried to find what "Input not Supported" means. I am doing a new install on an older PC and using a new Acer Monitor. When I run the install process the English choice appears and then the Ubuntu install options appear. So it seems that the display is working and then I choose install and the install process proceeds. Yet, after time the "Input not Supported" appears and moves around the screen like a screen saver.

Is this message related to the newer Acer monitor or is it some other issue. I also started the install process again and picked safe graphics mode... Same message appeared.

Does anyone know what the solution is... Do I have to use another monitor?

Any clue

Thank you

That sounds like an error your monitor is giving you (not your actual computer). What I'm betting it's doing, is complaining while ubuntu configures XOrg. However, it sounds like there are drivers out there for your monitor, it's just that ubuntu has failed to configure them properly. You could try a different version of ubuntu, or a different version of linux, and see if that helps.
