Question about Dell E196FP 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

I cannot install Dell E196FP monitor properly - resolution poor

I have tried to install the monitor manually as follows:
Start > Control panel > Display >Settings > Advanced > Monitor
At this point the monitor type is "Default monitor", and the "Properties" button is not available. For this reason I cannot install the drivers from C: or CD ROM.

The "Adapter" tab > Propeties shows the Adapter type as "VgaSave" with Device Type shown as: "Non-Plug and Play Drivers"

While this is the case, I cannot change the screen resolution from "1024x768" and the color quality from "8 bit"

My Dell E196FP monitor flashs colour when computer shuts down and power is still on

my guess would be that the monitor cable is loose in one end or its missing pins have you tried a different cable?

If that doesnt work try to find the correct driver for your monitor that matches your operating system.

I recently bought a used Dell E193FP flat panel LCD monitor that was working properly on the computer it was taken from. I tried plugging it into my Dell Dimension 3000 computer and the colors are all...

1280 x 1024 at 60 Hz (optimal) resolution is the maximum resolution with 16 color if the other computer had it on 32 bit color setting or the resolution of the monitor aspects ratio changed than it will not display anything on your computer
Solution is plug in your old monitor and change the settings to lowest with the aspect ratio as what the screen size is then plug in the new one that should do it

My dell e196fp lcd monitor has white lines

Dell had a problem with horizontal lines in some of their monitors a little while back. I would try contacting Dell Tech Support to see if your monitor is one of the one effected. I think they were replacing the monitors that had the problem, but I'm not completely sure.

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.

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)
