Acer Monitor "Input Not Supported" Error
Posted on 2015-02-24
I'm using an Acer monitor (V196WL) with a Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga (Win 8.1 Pro). The monitor is connected to the laptop with a mini-hdmi to VGA cable. This set-up has suddenly stopped working. Was working fine until today. I'm unaware of any Windows Updates. I'm now getting an "input not supported" error when connecting the two. The monitor was set to be the main display. But, I have switched back to the laptop being the main display since the monitor is no longer working.
In Device Manager / Monitors, "Generic PnP Monitor" is listed twice (one is the Lenovo display, and the other is the Acer). I selected "update device drivers" for both, but both indicated that drivers are up-to-date.
