Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
I swapped my hard drive over from a dell inspirion 5100 to a dell inspirion 1100 which is what I am on now, everything is perfect except the visual screen is smaller on this one and I cannot get it to go bigger so i have a small box in the middle of the screen is there anyway I can solve this. The reason I swapped the drives is because the lid to my other one is totally broken and my sister gave me this one.
please help if you can
Try right clicking on the desktop then selecting "properties". A window should appear. Click the "settings" tab at the top of this window. In the settings screen is a slider bar for screen resolution try sliding this to different places and clicking the apply button at the bottom of the screen until it is right. If this does not work go to start then control panel. If control panel is not in classic view switch it to classic view by clicking "Switch to classic" in the left hand column. Next click the icon that says "system" below it. In the window that opens click the tab that says "Hardware" in the hardware window click the "Device Manager" Button. A new window will open that has a list of things. There should be an entry in the list called "display adapters". Click the plus sign beside this. It should then expand and have a subentry for your display adapter. Right click on this sub entry. A popup menu will appear in the menu click "uninstall". A warning message will appear saying you are about to uninstall it. Click "OK". Now close all your open programs and restart your computer. When your computer restarts it should detect your screen as new hardware and configure it properly.
P.S. all directions are for Windows XP. Please rate me! Thanks.

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
dont forget to vote
hope this helps
