Hi;

I have a Acer AL1706 LCD monitor attached to a DELL XP computer, the XP is sp3.  I have installed the right video driver from DELL website, for somehow; when I select 1280x1024 resolution on XP, the monitor shown a input does not support message, why?

This monitor should support up to 1280x1024.

you may have a damaged driver. Try to download another copy and  reinstall the driver, or look for another driver to try.
The monitor may support 1280 x 1024 but maybe the controller does not?

From the Acer manual, "Max. Resolution 1024 x 768 @75Hz".  http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/manuals/acer/0000/servicemanuals/AL1706_SG.pdf  FAQ is http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/monitor/0000/Acer/AL1706/AL1706fql.shtml

I have one of these monitors and it's practically unusable if you can't connect to it at 1024 x 768 @75Hz.
