Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop

1 Answer

I may have changed the video card settings without meaning to!

I was playing a PC game with my daughter and I had a slight temper tantrum and hit a bunch of keys at the same time. My settings are all messed up with everything being really large and pages don't fit on the screen. I have to space way over to read even e-mail. An IT guy at work told me that I needed to re-establish my video card settings???What??? I do have some cd's that came with my computer. I have tried restoring back to a date before I had my tantrum, but with no luck...this is very frustrating...help?? It is a Dell Dimension 3000

On the desktop you can right mouse click on an empty area & if you are using Windows Vista click personalize, on XP it would be properties. Find the adapter tab and use it to reset your graphics to the way you want them. You can also access these features thru the control panel area on your start menu. Hope this helps.

Hello darling, Please put the Disgo 6000 update on at www.mydisgo.info/archives/1655 Try using the wifi to get apps and wigets straight to the machine, use the advance button next to the on button on the back of the device while in wifi settings to set any ip or dns settings. It works chucky egg as my self and son have cracked it, slightly fiddly though. My rough **** daughter who brakes everything can even use it without loosing her temper. Its ok by cherub dave

Game runs Horrible


you cannot play a game with good performance if your video card does not atleast meet the minimum requirements.

the reason minimum requirements exist is so you know what is required to run the game at its lowest settings.

Unfortunately you have a notebook not a gaming PC so there isn't much you can do. Go into bios and if it will let you increase the shared video memory. When loading the game go into it's settings and turn all the extra video features off. Intel tend not to make the best gaming video chips and I don't know of any laptops that are upgradeable.
Your laptop should be fine for all applications and multimedia except games. I prefer to game on a ATX size PC so i can upgrade and change things, but would recommend you get PS3 or xbox if the notebook doesn't kick it for you.

I've never played the game, but try restarting the program, and when the menu starts hit anything that says or looks like wahlen. Try to find the language select out of the options.

I'm sorry if this didn't work.

Wii is playing all games on auto


For Shrek I don't know, but for Wii tenis, I know that you can set the players to be cpu or player conrolled. I guess your daughter has set all of them to be controlled by the cpu. I think when you're setting up a game in wii tennis and you see all the players standing on the court (still in the menu screen) check to see if it says player or CPU.

Good luck.

Playing cards


go to youtube and find a video on how to open a disc drive.
Remove the foreign objects and it should work.
Unfortunately, opening the console will void the warranty.

Nintendo DS Lite


I'm not to familiar with the DS's but i beleive that is how they are supposed to boot if a cartridge is already in the unit. If not then there may be an option when booting without a cartridge where you can change the settings so that it will boot to the main DS screen before booting the game. I would check this first then seek further help from a more adequate expert on here.
