I try to change my computer monitor settings but they won't change. why?


You should be able to click Start/Control Panel and then look for Display or Display and Personalization.When it opens up select the Settings tab and click on 1 to select your lcd display. There should be two numbers 1 for lcd and 2 for external monitor.

You might be able to do it by keystrokes on your keyboard. Normally you can Press and Hold the FN function key at the lower left portion of the keyboard, then hit the key that toggles the display. The key that toggles the display will normally have LCD/CRT on it or it might have the icon of a display. It toggles between 3 modes (LCD Only, CRT Only or Both LCD and external CRT).

You could try reinstalling your Video Drivers but you would need to be in Safe Mode With Networking to give you internet connectivity. When it boots up open your internet browser and download and install the Video Drivers.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Dell Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Download and install the Video drivers.



If all fails you could do a System Restore to a Restore Point (date and time) before you started having the problem. Don't worry, System Restore does not delete any of your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs (unless the program was installed after the Restore Point you selected).



Click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore then select a date and time (Restore Point) that was before you started having problems.

I am unable to access the internet from sleep mode Can only get on internet from shut down mode


Three possible causes of sleep mode. first, an extensive screensaver with password lock prevents display. A condition that is observable as a blankscreen also known as sleep mode. Second, a computer power saver settings that shutsdown during idleness. Third, An improper shut down of the computer would have caused a sleep mode to save the system data files.



Restoring the computer to regular functionalioty

First solving predictable sleep mode settings
1. A movement of mouse pointer across the screen should reestablish unprotected password modes
a. password protected sleep mode would display an promp message requiring key code soon after the mouse pointer has changed direction

sloving unpredictable sleep mode settings
1.A computer power saver, screen saver, or splash screen displays prevnting programs acess would require manually powering off the computer system.
a. A manual power back on of the system should restore to program functionality mode

important notes
1. contact expert technical assistance

Restore factory settings


Here are the instructions from the user manual (be warned that doing this you will lose all your photos, Word docs, etc.):
1 Turn off the PC. If necessary, press and hold the On button until the PC
turns off.
2 Disconnect all peripheral devices from the PC except the monitor, the
keyboard, and the mouse.
3 Press the On button to turn the PC on.
4 During the startup, do the following to enter the System Recovery program:
When the blue screen with the HP Invent logo appears, press the F10 key on
the keyboard. (You have only a few seconds to press the F10 key before the
normal startup process continues.)
5 The PC starts the recovery; wait for the onscreen instructions to display, and
then follow those instructions.
6 Complete the PC startup, and finish the registration process. Then reconnect
all peripheral devices.

CPU running slow - I think the pentium went into a slow mode when the CPU fan failed. Dell BIOS does not have an option to restore to normal speed as Phoenix BIOS does.


Do you ever get a warning of low virtual memory? If so, go to microsoft.com. Then type in yyour operating system. It will then give you the appropriate propram to clean it up.

PC LOCKED AFTER SHUT DOWN , I THINK WRONG


Restart in safe mode (press f8 when it starts up and choose safe mode with networking)

Then go into command prompt
Then type in "net user ACCOUNTNAME NEWPASSWORD"
it should look like this:
net user Bob's PC Pa$$w0rd123

That will reset the password to a default setting, and you should be able to gain access again.

I restored my Dell and when I did I lost the ablity to put it in sleep mode of have it power down without shutting it off. What do I need to do to get this feature back? P.S. I lost the restore factory...


For that you need to set some settings in control panel.
Go to start menu->control panel->power options .
Then in "Power schemes" set turn off monitor time as you like.
Also click on 3 rd tab "Hibernate" and enable it.
So when it hibernate it comes on previous state from where it shut down.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

try starting the computer in safe mode. As the computer boots keep pressing F8 until you hear a beep. The computer will or should start in safe mode, once it has everything will look big, don't worry about that for now, click on start>programs>accessories>system tools>system restore and choose a date for when you know the computer was working without any problems. Once the computer has restored it will shut down and reboot. When/if asked what mode you want to boot/start your computer choose start windows normally. I hope this helps.
