SOURCE: monitor not working properly after a windowxp re-instalation

It sounds as though you need to install drivers for the hardware that is not working properly after your re-formatting and re-installation of windows.I have found that although windows xp will provide almost any drivers needed, many drivers for Dell systems are not. Just to check which hardware is not working properly, go to the start button, go to control panel, then performance and maintainance, then system, next hardware, and finally device manager. Any hardware listed that has a yellow question mark to the left is not working properly, most likely because the drivers are not installed. The easiest solution is if you have the original CD's that came with your computer. If you do, and you have one that is labeled " resource CD ", or if it is labeled that it contains the device drivers for the hardware not working your task should be relatively easy. Just insert the disc, it should auto start, if it does not, start it manually from my computer. It will automatically provide the drivers needed. If you do not have the CD needed, you can write down the specifics of the hardware not working from the device manager by clicking on each item and going to properties. After you have that information, go to the following Dell website and manually look for and download the drivers you need. Good Luck.

SOURCE: Dell E196FP resolution 1600 x 1200

LCDS only have a fixed resolution (optimal) so you either need a new lcd that supports the 1600X1200 resolution or use a crt (bulky monitors)

SOURCE: My Dell E207WFP LCD monitor has a blank screen


For this issue you might reconsider focusing on your CPU Tower, the way you're describing the issue, the monitor losses it connection from the computer, therefore showing the "analog input..." This is a power saving feature of your monitor. This means that the monitor is no longer a signal from your computer. Possible points of failure for this one could be, PSU, memory, motherboard or add on video card if you have one installed, best approach i could suggest is to run diagnostics- if your still able to boot the computer - Try powering up the computer, when you see the Dell logo tap F12 several times until you see some options then look for diagnostics, then run it..(this is for a DELL pc) if it fails then a possible hardware issue, if your pc still have warranty, call in for help.

Good luck!

Hope it helps!

It wants you to set the PC video card video output to its native resolution (1280*1024 60hz). Are you running the PC resolution on this mode? otherwise you can turn off the resolution warning by going into the monitor on-screen setup menu to turn off the resolution warning.

The native resolution of this monitor is 1280x1,024 2 60Hz, your PC video card resolution is set too high for it to display. Bootup in safe mode (hit F8 while booting up), then select VGA support, set the resolution to 1280x1,024 2 60Hz, then reboot.

Need to get screen size to show all . cant see

Things to check: Are your display settings set to "native resolution" of your screen. The native resolution is the actual dimensions (in pixels) of your flat-panel screen.
Looks like the Dell E153FP 15" has a native resolution of 1024x768. In windows, go to your control panel, in display settings, and ensure the resolution is set to 1024x768.
If that does not work, you can try the "auto adjust" feature on the monitor. On many Dell monitors, you can get this by pressing and holding the + button (on the monitor). You'll see the words "auto-adjust" appear on the screen if this works. If that doesn't work, you may be able to find auto adjust by navigating the menues in your monitor's menu, which you can get to by pressing the "menu" button on your monitor (sometimes this looks like a little rectangle icon). If it's an alignment problem, this should fix it right away.
If neither of the above work, it's probably your video card. Make sure your video card drivers are the correct ones for your card and OS, and up to date. You can also mess with display options under Control Panel > Display, under the "settings" tab, and at the bottom click the "Advanced" button, and it will bring up the advanced settings for your videocard.
Good luck!

DELL E153FPf doesn't show the image

OSD Warning Messages A warning message may appear on the screen indicating that the monitor is out of sync range.
Cannot Display This Video Mode
This means that the monitor cannot synchronize with the signal that it is receiving from the computer. Either the signal is too high or too low for the monitor to use. See Specifications for the Horizontal and Vertical frequency ranges addressable by this monitor. Recommended mode is 1024x768 @ 60Hz.
Occasionally, no warning message appears, but the screen is blank. This could also indicate that the monitor is not synchronizing with the computer or the monitor is in a power save mode.

16:9 resolution problem

You don't specify your machine type, or the operating system, but let's assume a desktop computer and Windows XP...

Was the monitor recognized properly by the video driver?

Go to Display Properties, settings, advanced, monitor and see if Plug and Play monitor is installed. All modern graphics cards talk to the monitor to discover it's capabilities and should adjust the available resolutions so that the monitor's native resolution is available for choosing.
If some other monitor is listed there, change it to Plug and Play monitor. If still having troubles, you can do two things:
- update the video driver for your graphics card
- find the monitor's .inf file (it should be on a CD that comes with the monitor, or can be downloaded from DELL site), and install this instead of the Plug and Play monitor or whatever you have in your monitor setup (as above, go to monitor - properties - update driver).

The resolution notifier keeps popping up (NEC multisync 1740 CX) and I am unable to turn it off.

It probably is warning you that your video graphics adapator is puting out a non-native resolution to the monitor.

LCD monitors are designed for a specific resolution. If you don't use that resolution, the LCD has to try to mimick the resolution you've asked for.

Check your display settings and also consider updating your graphic driver if a new version is available.
