Go into your display properties and you may have to look around for a sec, but there is a setting in there that will say enable boarder uncheck this and you will no longer have the boarder around the screen

Cant connect to wireless on dell laptop xps M170


First of all make sure that there is a wireles adapter on your laptop.
There are some XPS M170 Models without one.
If you have one, we can try to solve the problem?
1. Make sure that the driver of the Wifi adapter and the Chipset are propertly installed. Try to download the newest driver from the dell web site accordng your os
2. If there is a third party conection software like Conection manager or else, deinstall it an let windows manage your networks
Hope this helps you. I will need a screenshot and some further descriptions in order to solve the problem if the 2 solutions above dont help.

I just bought a used Dell XPS M170 laptop yesterday and am afraid I got cheated. This morning the monitor went white several times and I had to force shutdowns and then reboot only for the screen to go...


Try connecting an external monitor to the 15 pin VGA (Video Graphics Adapter)and see if you still get a white display. You may have to hold down the function key next to the space bar and depress the key with a picture of a monitor on it to send the video signal to the monitor.
If you still get a white display on external monitor then you have a problem with the laptop's video card.
If the display on the external monitor is fine then you have a problem with the laptop's LCD display panel or I/O cable and they need to be replaced.

No color Red, Dell XPS 400, NVIDIA GeForce 7300 LE video card


Mike,

I would recommend for you to try different monitor, so that you can isolate the problem.

If same problem occur, try to plug in your video card into another PCI slot in your computer. Cleaning the gold fingers of the video card with a clean cotton cloth might help.

Use a blower to remove some dust on the PCI slot.

Or try inserting the video card in another computer. If you get the same problem on another computer, you need to replace the card.

Good luck!

Vertical dashes and dots on dell logo screen


I had a similar problem 3 weeks ago.
Unfortunately i bought a new video card for that computer.
Also verify if memory modules are ok, i mean 1 memory module could be damaged.
If not, with all respect, your video card could be damaged. Verify if video card cooler is ok.

Have a new 23 inch samsung monitor that requires res 1920x1080


The problem is the cable connection to the video card.
When using the DVI output of the FX 5500, the maximum screen resolution that you can select is 1280 x 1024.

But, if you use the Analog (VGA) output, the card will support resolutions up to 2048 x 1536, which should be ok.

Same problem with a different card - probably something else.

Games require lots of RAM. I would add as much as possible. I recommend crucial.com. They can automatically examine your PC online, and make suggestions. Cheap, fast, top quality. Been using them for years.
