View Full Version : [ubuntu] "The current input timing is not supported by the monitor display"

I have a Dell S2009W LCD monitor, and I just installed ubuntu 11.10 on my emachine. But when I start it up, I just get an error message on the monitor saying

"The current input timing is not supported by the monitor display.

Please change your input timing to 1600x900@60Hz or any other

monitor listed timing as per the monitor specifications."

Naturally I can't see what I'm doing in order to change the input timing, how should I go about fixing this?

the instruction book for your LCD monitor should give clues as to how to change the different settings of your LCD. There may be a choice as to how to choose the input frequency / signal / format, etc. It may also be that the appropriate hardware drivers are not available in your installed version of ubuntu to be able to drive the display. If that is the case, then it is not a hardware issue, but a software issue that might be corrected in future versions of ubuntu or the drivers it uses for monitors like your. sorry.
