Norcent Technologies LM173SB 17 in. Flat Panel LCD Monitor Won't work with Windows 7


I ran into this very problem myself, the issue is that the monitor only supports 1280x1024 resolution MAX. Windows 7 cannot detect this monitor and so it does not know it is limited to this resolution, so Windows 7 is putting out a higher resolution at startup, thus the monitor tries to autodect for a second but then just goes blank because it doesn't understand (and can't display) the signal. The only solution is to use another monitor and adjust the resolution to 1280x1024 or lower, but I run into a problem where as soon as you remove the other monitor and restart, WIndows tries to "plug & play" the monitor all over again at startup. So you're best bet really is a newer monitor unfortunately, I only use my old Norcent monitor with my XP computer.

I change to windows 7 and battery start showing need to be replace


Hi, this is a known issue in many Laptops which have upgraded to Windows 7 Operating System. I suggest that you check for the Drivers compatible with Windows 7 Operating System by visiting Laptop Manufacturer's Website. By installing all the updated Drivers of Windows 7 the Laptop functions as expected. If the laptop manufacturer doesn't provide Windows 7 Compatible Drivers then you have to downgrade to Windows XP. Please install WIndows XP to get rid of the replace battery message. The issue is not related to Battery.

I have an old Dell c600 and have just installed Windows 2000. My display is only taking up half the size of the total area - how can i expand it to fill the whole screen please?


Hi collywebs,

Go to this support site for the Dell C600 running Windows 2000. Not only can you download your video driver, but all drivers for your laptop, including all components. The video driver will be at the bottom of the page.
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=04&l=en&s=bsd&os=WW1&osl=en&SystemID=LAT_PNT_P3C_C600&catid=-1&impid=-1

If you have moved your operating system to XP/XP Pro, this same driver should work also. This driver should allow your display to fill the screen in the proper aspect ratio.

I hope this helps your situation. Thanks.

Regards, Bill

Xp installation problem


“No Hard Disk” error displayed on XP install (SATA drive versus ATA/IDE drive) The two most most popular types of hard drives in personal computers are ATA (also known as IDE hard drive) and SATA hard drives. Many newer computers have SATA hard drives installed, but your computer may have either an (older design) ATA/IDE hard drive or a (newer design) SATA hard drive installed.
After removing Vista, when you reboot your computer, a “No Hard Disk” error may be displayed if your computer has a SATA drive installed. To fix the “No Hard Disk” error, you may need configure your computer’s BIOS settings so that it can recognize the SATA drive installed in you computer. Reconfiguring your BIOS is typically not required if your computer has an ATA/IDE hard drives installed.

Step 1: Activate your computer’s BIOS menu. The first or second screen your computer displays on status may display which key (or keys) you must press to activate your computer’s BIOS menu. You can also look in the index of your computer’s manual for “BIOS” or you can try passing the [Del] or [F1] key when text is first displayed after powering on your computer.

Step 2: BIOS menus vary by computer, but there are seldom more than a few menu categories. Review the “Main” and “Advanced” menu categories to locate your hard drive setting. When you locate the hard drive setting, be sure to note the original drive setting in the bios so that you can restore the original drive setting if your new configuration doesn’t work.

Step 3: Change the drive setting to “IDE,” then save the BIOS settings (usually by pressing the [F10] function key then restart your computer.
If changing your BIOS hard drive setting to IDE doesn’t work, return to step one and restore the original hard drive setting

Dual boot


There's probably a problem with your display drivers in XP.
Try booting in Safe Mode (F8 on startup). Now your display should work.
If you boot in safe mode with networking, you can visit the graphics-card manufacturer's website and download the latest drivers. After installing these, try rebooting normally...

Windows XP drivers for Sony VAIO Laptop


There is no easy answer for this type of question, unfortunately. The best I can do is offer some advice. While installing XP is always possible, and most of the time preferred by the user, not all of the hardware will work every time with every computer. That's just a disclaimer. I think this thread may be useful to you: http://forum.notebookreview.com/showthread.php?t=128804

My AL1716 doesn not work in DOS


Hi

The screen probably does work in DOS but the laptop doesn't bother sending it any signal in DOS, it's only when windows starts that windows takes control of the displays and shoots out a signal to the external monitor

I don't know how you would get round this because you can't see your BIOS which you need to go in to and set the primary monitor to external.
