This is normally caused when the monitor does not support the screen resolution the computer is set to. Change the screen resolution and see if that helps. Also, consider updating your graphics driver too.
Your monitor is not running in its native resolution, so there is notification to change your display resolution, then you have to check driver for your video card. Upgrade the driver fot your video card. Where will be the setting to change to 1440 x 900.
other solution is to adjust your display to use another higher resolution:
right click on empty space on the screen and select property a window title "display property" should pop out select the tab "setting" on the middle of the left side there is a bar for increasing / decreasing the resolution
You may have set the resolution/refresh higher than is possible for the laptop to produce, Try booting into safe mode (F8 on power up)
if you can, you can now reduce the resolution to the monitors default resolution.
If you have not already, pop over to the dell support site and download the right driver for your display
you probably have to set the correct resolution that fits on your monitor.
The correct resolution is: 1920x1200
You can set it by right-clicking on your desktop and choosing "Screen Resolution" in Windows Vista and Windows 7.
If you use Windows XP, right-click on your desktop and choose "Properties" Then open the rightmost tab to choose the resolution
Right click on your desktop, go to properties, and navigate to the settings tab. There, try to set the monitors resolution to the largest available. That should fix your problem.
If it doesn't just try some other resolutions until ou find one that works.
I hope this helps,
You can adjust your settings to something more to your liking by right clicking on your desktop in an empty area - then choose "properties" from the menu that pops up.
In the new window go to the tab that says "settings" and adjust the screen resolution to something a little larger. If you change your desktop settings in this manner then a window will pop up immediately after the adjustment asking you if you want to keep the new settings or revert back to the old one. If you don't select something within like 15-30 seconds it will change back. It does that just in case you change the settings so bad you can't see anything.
Another place to adjust the size of your fonts is to go to the "appearance" tab of the same menu and look for "font size" and there you can make your fonts bigger and ridiculously big, in case you still need to after changing the resolution.
I hope you find this information helpful, have a blessed day!
You need to change down the res. to a minor mode. i.e. 800x600 low quality. For Windows enter the protected mode - i.e. after POST (bootup) press F8 then enter with your account, or the administrator. Right-click anywhere on the empty desktop and enter "Properties" menu. Turn the screen resolution down in there (i.e. 800x600); also, check whether your current monitor is recognized by model in there. Re-adjust to a suitable working resolution. If all fails, you can also de-install the video card driver in admin protected mode to go back to basics. Of course You need to re-install it again afterwards when in your original Windows.
