Foarte util, mersi!
Eu am un monitor Acer V193W si in meniul de grub de unde aleg daca vreau sa intru in windows sau in linux, imi aparea “input not supported”. Si eram pe linux in momentul in care am gasit postul asta, si mi-am dat seama ca aceasta solutie o sa mearga ( am mai incercat si altele ). Dadusem bookmark (vroiam sa iti multumesc) dar am intrat in windows. In fine, pai, multumesc, m-ai salvat :P
