"input not supported"?

Hi, just recently i've been having a problem for a few games where when i go to start them up my screen goes black and a small box saying INPUT NOT SUPPORTED floats around the screen tauntingly. To make things worse i can hear the game running in the background eg. the intro music.

So far i have been able to bring it down to something to do with my computer not recognising the type of moniter i have plugged in (acer flatscreen AL1714). I figured this because when i right click on my NVIDIA display panel thing at the bottom right of the screen it goes black for about a second and then it comes up, then when i hover over NVIDIA display it says my screen is a "Analog Display" whereas it USED to say AL1714 or something along those lines.

also it alows me to select massively high resulutions and refresh rates but when i do choose them i get the message.

so basicly my problem is games not working because i cant see anything

ANY help would be greatly appreciated, i'm going to bed now though because its 20 to 2 in the morning, thanks in advance

Thanks mate, i downloaded the file but i don't actually know what to do with the files since most moniters are plug and play.

if you could tell me what to do with the three files that would be helpful, i'll put some screenies of them and no i havn't reinstalled windows recently

Replace the monitor PnP drivers with this. (Device Manager > Monitor > Update Drivers...).

that wont work mate because when i go there it says my drivers are up to date because it thinks im using a "analog display" moniter, but i'm not.

so i'm not sure if it is a driver problem. it seems more probable that the compuiter just doesnt recognise that im using this type of screen, but if thats the case then why is it showing my destop and everything?

im very confused and any more help will be held in HIGH regard

Things are beggining to get frustrating now. i was able to get my device manager to recognise that i have a AL1714 but my NVIDIA drivers still say that i'm using a analog display, i've tried making it scan for new moniter devices and the like but the drivers just can't seem to find it, also ever since i installed the drivers from device manager and it recognised them and what-not i've allready experienced three lock-ups of my whole computer which i had to hold the power in to turn the computer off.

Also when i turned my computer on this morning i got a message with the title of moniter and it said "Invalid license ID" with only an OK button.

so now i have absolutely no clue what to do and things seem to be getting worse, any help would be greatly appreciated.

inpput not supported = refresh rate is to high, if its an lcd monitor, use refresh rate overrides to force any resolution you use to 60hz (some of the new lcd's use 75 and 85) but refresh rate doesn't matter on lcd anywya,.. its all about the response time...
