Question about Computer Monitors

Can't reset computer for HP 24" W LCD

Connected new monitor to Dell XP machine...
the monitor setting changed to 640x480 , and would allow no access to make any change to what it now shows as 'default monitor'(not plug and play),...
the adapter is shown as unavailable...
Somewhere I found a place to check to disregard the current adapter (which appeared to be nothing)...so I did thinking it would find something
BUT now when the computer is started, the windows logo appears, but the screen just goes 'blank' ---not a blue screen or black... just a nothing screen-
I can't access the computer to undo the checkbox...
What can I do... and why did connecting the monitor cause the computer to do what it did ?

My monitor will not allow me to even get a menu screen with the computer off. How can I get it reset back to factory settings without accessing the monitors menu? Should I just get a new monitor?


What is wrong with your hp w1907 lcd monitor? It won't allow you to get to the menu screen with the computer off?

The computer must control the monitor and should have a graphics card that supports the different resolutions of the monitor which will be connected to the computer via DVI or VGA.

I think your monitor is fine, unless you cannot get it to work with your computer.

Good luck on getting your monitor to work on your computer.

Optiquest vs11201 monitor not above 640x480 resolution


You need to download the driver from DELL for your video card, my 3000 use video driver R79733.EXE.
You may have virus in your computer if you cannot update the drivers, sometime it is better to start from clean drive to help get rid of stuff that get installed into the computer.

Unclear Display


Goto cotrol panel/display/settings and set the resolution to 640x480. Make your you are using the video driver from the manufactorer for your video card. Windows generic drivers do not work well for all monitors. When you get the proper video driver you can reset your resolution back to a higher setting.

My monitor is stuck in the lowest resolution


Distorted video after increasing the resolution in Windows. The resolution has been set higher than what is supported by the monitor, ... we recommend 640 x 480 with 256 colors or the lowest available setting.
Computer always boots into Windows safe mode. When booting into safe mode, the lowest settings are used, including your video card. This means that the resolution is 640x480, 16 colors when in safe mode.

your pc may be set to a resolution that is out of range for the monitor. Boot into "Safe mode" reset the Display settings to 640 x 480. reboot into normal mode then change the screen settings to your desired resolution.
