Question about Dell E770 Monitor

Open Question

Graphic distortion Hi, I recently reinstalled windows 98 (original with this computer, which is an older Dell dimension) after getting frustrated with an XP upgrade that was too hefty for this older machine. The monitor (original with this computer too) displayed perfectly in XP, but now, on programs designed for 98, there is 'graphic distortion'. I receive a warning when i open software that this will occur as 'I am running at higher than 256 colors'. In the CONTROL PANEL, DISPLAY options, I have the choice of 16 colours or 2 colours (B and W). No other choices. I have tried reinstalling the driver (dellmon.exe), but the distortion continues. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

SOURCE: My monitor is stuck in the lowest resolution

Distorted video after increasing the resolution in Windows. The resolution has been set higher than what is supported by the monitor, ... we recommend 640 x 480 with 256 colors or the lowest available setting.
Computer always boots into Windows safe mode. When booting into safe mode, the lowest settings are used, including your video card. This means that the resolution is 640x480, 16 colors when in safe mode.

SOURCE: Can't change monitor display settings

no drivers are needed for monitor. Its the video card drivers that you should look for at the dell drivers and downloads website. make sure that you have the right driver installed so that you may be increase your screen resolution.You may also use your Dell Resource CD Drivers and utilities. Install the Resource cd, On the TOPICS dropdown box, select drivers,You'll know which drivers needs to be installed because they will have a check mark infront of the correct device driver. Clicke extract button after you have chosen the video driver. You may need to scroll down.Restart the computer.

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.

Dell Dimension 4700 - Driver Reset


1st you need to download or install all the drivers for your Dell computer. Try to use the drivers/utilities disks first. Once you can get online, go to Dell.com and look up your model 4700 and download all the missing drivers. Your Linksys Router is not a modem. The Linksys has the modem connected to it for wireless connections.

Missing Windows XP Product Key-Need to Reinstall/Repair XP


I'm assuming you have quite a lot of computer savvy??? You'll need to access that drive and get the original key off it. Try connecting the drive to another pc and see if you can get to the Windows folder. Once there, use Jellybean Keyfinder to navigate to the Windows folder in that drive and take note of the OS key. From there you can reformat and use the existing key.

Sound distorted at start-up and when program starts


Try going to dell and down loading an upto date sound driver and see if that clears up your problem. If not, you have an internal problem with your sound device.


Good Luck

Computer screen graphics are distorted


It may be a corrupt driver, if you are running xp then go to my computer, right click>properties>hardware>device manager and look down list for graphics adapter. Click on the '+' sign select your graphics adapter and right click and delete. Restart your pc and and xp will find your graphics again and automatically install the drivers. Also check you have no spyware if it is sluggish and clear all your temp files and internet cookies.
