Analog Input Cannot Display This Video Mode

by crip321 / November 23, 2008 6:18 PM PST

Hello, I have an HP laptop which I have had hooked up to a dell flat panel as an external monitor. It has been working just fine for a couple of years. Then one day, I start getting the following message on the dell monitor: "1. Analog Input Cannot Display This Video Mode." I have tried a million different things after searching for things on Google. Does anyone have some ideas? Thanks.

So try the usual and set it to 800x600 60Hz for a test. Be sure to try other displays. Who's to say this display or your VGA port has packed it in or not?

monitor cannot display this video mode

I just had this problem on a new install. Turns out the LCD monitor I'm using only supports 60 Hz., and the GeForce2 mx 400 (in this case) set itself to 85 Hz. When I connected it to a CRT, it worked. I changed the refresh rate to 60 HZ and reconnected the LCD. No problems. (Right-click the desktop, Properties/Settings/Advanced/Monitor/Screen Refresh Rate) Hope it helps sombody. I searched every engine and found nothing I didn't have to pay for first.
I've posted this reply to other locations I searched.
