MY COMPUTER SCREEN HAS GONE SMALL

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.

    That worked great!! Thanks. Now I'm trying to get my internet connected after reloading xp on an inspiron 1100, but I cant find a driver that will work, even though I loaded the original driver disk for the computer -- I have gone to lots of sites, including dell, but cant get one to work.

How to reseat hard drive from dell inspirion laptop?


Ambiguous question but I will attempt to help.

If you are wanting to restore the computer to factory build, then the OS disc will be required, or you can roll back with 'System Restore' How to restore Windows XP to previous state

If the hard drive is not showing in the BIOS then a replacement hard drive can be purchased for a few pounds.
Amazon co uk IDE Hard Drives Computers Accessories

Hope this helps you out?

Erased hard drive, how can install os without the disk?


You would require an installation media to re-install OS, So you can't do it without CD or USB thumb drive with installation file.You can call dell @ 8006249896 and ask them for OS disk, If you wouldn't have received with the computer, they will be sending it to you free of cost and it will only take 2 to 3 business days for you to receive those than you can re-install OS.

I have a Dell Inspirion 8600. XP SP3 w/all of the latest MS updates. Got keyboard error message, rebooted and got blue screen related to keyboard error. rebooted, reset Boot menu to Dell factory default....


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

Have Dell Inspirion 1100 laptop that doesn't find the hard drive. Have looked in the bios and it won't let me do anything with it. What do I need to do?


Try this... reboot your computer and hit f2 at the dell splash screen. This will take you in to the setup... arrow over to load setup defaults then hit f10 save changes and exit. Start here.. let me know if this works, if not we'll go to step 2

Help! My Dell Inspirion 1525 laptop crashed, black screen, nothing..I ran the diagnostic test for the os and there were several errors. I have the reinstallation discs but do not know to do that.


0F00 errors are hard disk drive errors. You will need to replace the hard drive. If under warranty, call Dell Tech support. If not, then you can buy a new drive from places like Newegg.com
