I have long since gone to Dell support, the machine neither recognises the harware nor any attempts to upload the Dell drivers. It says 'unable to open file'. Regarding the monitor and soundcard It is like the machine has become largely blind and dumb.

It sounds as though you need to install drivers for the hardware that is not working properly after your re-formatting and re-installation of windows.I have found that although windows xp will provide almost any drivers needed, many drivers for Dell systems are not. Just to check which hardware is not working properly, go to the start button, go to control panel, then performance and maintainance, then system, next hardware, and finally device manager. Any hardware listed that has a yellow question mark to the left is not working properly, most likely because the drivers are not installed. The easiest solution is if you have the original CD's that came with your computer. If you do, and you have one that is labeled " resource CD ", or if it is labeled that it contains the device drivers for the hardware not working your task should be relatively easy. Just insert the disc, it should auto start, if it does not, start it manually from my computer. It will automatically provide the drivers needed. If you do not have the CD needed, you can write down the specifics of the hardware not working from the device manager by clicking on each item and going to properties. After you have that information, go to the following Dell website and manually look for and download the drivers you need. Good Luck.

Problems with Dell E153FP 15" LCD Monitor goes out to black green light flickers.....If i hit it a few times or more the screen on the pedestral come times that works too. No loss wire connection

Check 4 transistors (c5706/5707) for shorts in the inverter transformer driving circuits, this is a common failure. A lot of solder joints will also need to be resoldered. Check for bad capacitors also.

I'm trying to hook up the e153fp to a dell latitude lap top. What are the settings that I should use for this configuration? the e153fp doesn't like the display settings.

By going to I was able to pull up the user guide for the E153FP and read the specs to determine that the monitor has a screen resolution of 1024x768. The previous monitor had a higher resolution and this is why the E153FP would not display correctly.
Thanks for your response to my posting.

Monitor nor driver acknowledged

If you just want to adjust the display settings so that they are more to your liking go to Control Panel and open Display. When the Display Properties box opens click on the settings tab. Use the slider bar in Screen Resolution to adjust to 1024x768 or whatever resolution your monitor displays best at. To the right use the pull down arrow to select the highest color quality you can select. Then click on the Advanced button on the bottom left and you should see a Monitor tab. Click on that and ensure your refresh rate is 60 Hertz. Save your settings, accept the change confirmation when it appears and your monitor should be good to go. I have about 90 Dell LCDs and the default Windows drivers for the LCDs usually work great.
