Linuxhelp _ Hardware Support _ Newbie needs HELP! Acer X193HQ LCD Monitor-input not supported

Posted by: Smithjc Feb 2 2009, 04:41 PM

Hello All,
I just purchased an LCD monitor and I have a problem I can not seem to find an answer too. I plug in the monitor and configured it exactly as in the manual and it boots. It shows the boot pae and OpenSUSE signon and then as the desktop comes up it goes to a black screen and says "input not supported". Is there anyway I can configure this monitor or do I just need to take it back..LOL I WANT AN LCD

Thanks for your help.
P.S Please keep it simple I am not a programmer. Soemtimes I think SUSE is too much for me, ...LOL I refuse to go back to windoze!
Blessings,
Jeanne

Hmmm, am I to assume that there is no help for this issue?

How did you configure the monitor? You can manually modify Xorg.conf or run SaX2 in text mode. I would say the second method would be your choice.
Need to boot the computer without running the desktop.
