Input not Supported - Win 98 / IBM PC 300GL
Posted on 2006-05-10
i have acquired an IBM PC 300GL (6564 scu)
it has an old AGP graphics card with DVI output, and a VGA adapter. i'm sure it worked for the last person who used it. i think my issue is that i'm trying to use it with an ACER AL1716 LCD.
the computer boots, has the IBM logo, splashes the Win 98 screen, and then goes back to a black screen that says DOSKey and says to press cntrl-s to access Startup Options. this cntrl-s menu is basically a boot menu. it then goes to "input not supported"
i went into BIOS... there aren't a whole lot of options for Video. i also checked the LCD itself and there doesnt seem to be a way to turn down the resolution or MHz.
am i out of luck on trying to use the old IBM with an LCD? suggestions on other things to try?
i have an extra video card... happens to be a dual monitor PCI, but i am going to try installing that to see if there is a difference.
