In addition to installing the operating system (Windows XP) you will need to install the drivers for the system.  If you system is a Dell Dimension 1100 you can get the drivers from this link:
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=DIM_CEL_1100&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

Driver installation order is:
Desktop system software (R121089.exe) Intel Chipset Utility (R96614.exe) Intel Video Driver (R104515.exe) Audio Driver (R105155.exe) Network Driver (R105786.exe) Modem Driver (R133743.exe or R73044.exe)
Once you have all the drivers installed, then you can install your applications and configure your internet connection.

Install and register with the following details,

Good Luck.

Reinstalled Windows XP on an old computer (DELL Dimension 2400) and the monitor won't display above basic resolution. Downloaded and reinstalled the monitor driver and still no good. Opened up START


According to the Dell Support web site the Dell Dimension 2400 has a built in Intel 3D extreme graphics adapter, assuming you are using this and not a PCI graphics card.

Go to the Intel Download Centre and run their Intel Driver Update Utility which will automatically scan your system for updated drivers for any installed or integrated Intel devices.

If the Intel Utility identifies an updated driver for your graphics adapter then download and install that which should enable you to configure a higher resolution for your display.

I have a Mag Innovision 2200W Monitor. I messed with the settings, and now I get a ''mode not supported'' error. The computer is running in the background, and works with other monitors, but not this one....


Hi


To resolve this issue connect a monitor which is working with the Computer. Now right click on desktop and select properties(if windows XP) or personalize/screen resolution (if windows vista / 7)-> Now click on settings tab (windows XP) or change the resolution of your monitor-> Choose a lower resolution rate maybe 800X600. Now try connecting the other monitor with your Computer and it will work.

If not then check for the refresh rate of your monitor, adjust it to 60 Hz. You can adjust refresh rate from settings tab->advanced button(in XP). Screen resolution/Display settings(under windows 7/vista)->Advanced setting->monitor tab ->refresh rate.

This will surely resolve your issue.

Cant use my rad 5 with a desktop Dell computer with Vista


Temporarily connect another monitor to your computer.

Set the screen-resolution to 800 by 600 at 60 Hertz.

Disconnect the other monitor, and connect your RAD.

It should display.

Try changing the screen-resolution to 1024 by 768, and "test" it.

REINSTALLED WINDOWS XP PROF. WINDOWS COME UP BUT CANT GET ON INTE


Are you sure you are connected to the internet? You can check that by looking at the right hand corner of the monitor. The icon with two small monitors. When you point the mouse pointer to it, you should be able to see the status: connected. If it shows an X, it means that the cable is unplugged. You should make sure it is fitted on the lan card.

Laptop stuck at 800x600


Odd problem. To solve, best bet is too reboot computer, press F2 to enter system settings. Go to visual performance and set a terminal networked computer default. May reset all other setting as well though.

Proview wb926wbi monitor


Try changing the resolution to 1440x900. This is the ideal resolution for this monitor.
To change the resolution:
Right click on an empty space on your Windows desktop.
Choose Properties (XP) or Personalize (Vista)
Choose the Settings tab (XP) or Display Settings (Vista).
Slide the resolution slider to 1440x900, then click apply.
If asked whether you want to keep this setting, choose yes/ok.

Note: Not all video cards support this resolution. Updating your video card's (not monitor's) driver may add it.

Anyone know a way to increase the resolution past 1024 x 768?


First, you might want to check what the maximum supported resolution of your monitor is. You can do this by looking it up on the internet or referring to the owners manual. If you cant find that information, in your graphics properties in Windows XP, click the advanced button beneath the color settings and click the monitor tab. Make sure the model listed under 'Monitor Type' matches the monitor you have. If it does, see if the 'Hide modes that this monitor cant display' box is checked. If so, the maximum resolution is limited by your monitor and you may have to upgrade the monitor to go any higher. If the model does not match, you can try the following: click Properties->Driver Tab-> Update Driver and either load the correct ones from the manufacturers web site or use one of the Standard Monitor types provided by the windows Driver library. Be warned though: If you select a standard type with resolution higher than your monitor supports, it will not display correctly at settings higher than 1024x768, and you may have to wait for windows to change the resolution back. Another thing you can try is unchecking the 'Hide modes that this monitor cant display' box, clicking ok, and setting the resolution to something higher than 1024x768, but the same warning applies! If it does not display correctly than you know for sure that the monitor is the limiting factor.
