    I just wanted to tell you I learned something today and it made me feel so dumb. I took out the video card and plugged it to the on board, then booted it up and WOW it worked.Then all I had to do was go to dell and download, and BAM it cleared up the picture. Many thanks to you for your great knowledge and wisdom..Royboy/// Your the best..

When you boot the unit go into bios setup, write down the displayed service tag number in the BIOS, this will ID the motherboard on the dell support site, then enter the tag number onto the dell download site and choose your OS and from the drop down menue select Video.

the onboard video for the 240 is an ATI eithe VE, 16mb,32mb.
the onboard video for260 is 3 different ATI's or 2 different Intel.

I install Windows 7 on my computer and I get 8 bits of video that I have had xp and when that had 96Mb


Hi, what has happened is when you installed the Win 7, it hasn't recognized your Video card, what you need to do, is obtain a driver that is suitable for Win 7. You need to go to the manufacturers website of you Video card,or PC, and find the driver and download and install. If it is an ATI card go to the ATI website and download the latest driver for your video card, if NVIDIA then the same applies here, BOTH of those sites would have a suitable driver, IF the card is supported under Win 7.
Many Video cards are NOT suitable NOR supported, in this case you either have to use the "Generic" drivers Win 7 supplies, or change you Video card if possible.
I have a feeling that your PC will NOT be suitable for Win 7. However I include the link for your drivers. Please go to this website below and download your Video Drivers and see how you go.

Display problem


Hi,

The problem might be with your monitor, please check it properly if it is okay and also try to check your system on another Monitor.

If your monitor is okay, then there are two possible causes:

1) There might be a problem with your slot on motherboard try to connect card with another one if your board have.

2) There must be a problem with your graphics card. If it has a warranty, do replace it ASAP.

If you have anything else to clear, please do share with me.

Kind Regards,

Khawar Khalid

Need driver for xp


There are no drivers needed for Windows XP, the default monitor driver will work fine.You may need to update your video card drivers if you are unable to use the recommended resolution.

Computer wont detect monitors


hi kathy, please
give some more details:
does the monitor switch on without the computer? (press the menu button to access the menu for contrast, colour etc... to find out)
if yes, good.else get another one with vga plug( 9 pins), not the new HDMI...
the machine is like 10 yrs old,
now replug, turn on machine and wait if it does give you a boot screen

if not the graphics card might be broke and must be replaced.

- try to get an older graphics card (AGP)
plus drivers suiting the operation system
(like win2000/ win xp home)
u want to install (you'll need an original installation cd of that windows version,
as well) at ebay or in computer store or ask some tech freaks u know
if they do have left over one.

then you'll have to remove the old one...

if you got it:

switch off the machine, unplug all cables,
unscrew the chassis, remove old card carefully from slot, put in the 'new' one
reassamble everything, replug and turn it on.

it could work now...
when facing the windows installation, even if ti is win 98, please post another request on fixya.
hope i was of a help

Computer monitor becomes distorted after boot up.


Hi,

Download and install the correct driver for the monito as well as the deiver for your video card, if the video is onboard, you may need the motherboard and AGP driver as well.
You will probably need to boot in Safemode to do this.
Good Luck.

Video driver loading problem after clean XP home install


Are you sure that you are installing the proper driver, I mean are u installing the driver for windows xp? If you are not able to install in the proper manner. Do like this Right Click on My Computer>Manage>Device Manager>Display Adapters. If an yellow exclamation mark is shown then it means that you have not installed the driver and if its not showing any confilct (yellow exclamation mark)then you have already intalled the driver and your video card is also working perfectly. And the problem could be something else. If confilct(yellow exclamation mark) exits.. Do like this. Right Click on the exclamation mark>Update driver>Not at this time> Install from a specified location>make sure u have checked "search removable media..." and make sure that u have put the driver cd in the cdrom and click next. If you have put the correct CD then windows will automatically install the driver for your laptop. During the installation if system shows a message "This driver is not digitally signed..." Click continue anyway. If none of the above things work. Download the latest drivers from the net. -ShaC
