Try running the game on another monitor and changing the resolution and refresh rates in the settings as low as possible. –  Hello71 Jun 5 '11 at 14:32
    
this is what i did (see above comment). i run warcraft on a rather old CRT monitor and it went well. If I put it back on the acer lcd, its still input not supported. Do I need to set the resolution / refresh rates of the game itself while on the CRT monitor so that it will be used once I switch to the Acer lcd monitor? –  r2b2 Jun 5 '11 at 14:35
    
@Hello71 - You should make that an answer. :) –  techie007 Jun 5 '11 at 14:36

Set the game to run at the native resolution of the LCD. The Acer h163hql has a resolution of 1366x768.

According to some random page from the intertubes:

  • Go to run
  • Type in "regedit"
  • expand"HKEY_CURRENT_USER"
  • expand"Software"
  • expand"Blizzard Entertainment"
  • expand"Warcraft III"
  • click "Video"
  • double click "resheight"
  • change the bullet option to decimal
  • Set to desired screen height
  • double click "reswidth"
  • change the bullet option to decimal
  • Set to desired screen width
