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"

The problem is you don't have the display adapter driver installed (Video Card)

You can net that driver at support.dell.com

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.

How to open up / disassemble Dell E196FP Monitor


On my Dell 19 inch LCD Monitor, E196FPf, there are 4 screws on the back, and you need to pry off the plastic bezel from the front. At the bottom of the bezel are 4 small slots where you can start prying carefully with a screwdriver.

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. http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=PLX_PNT_P4_GX260&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

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)

Dell E196FP lcd screen broke


Hi,
Generally the LCD screens are covered under 3 yr warranty. If you have purchased it as a seprate product from Dell. Otherwise it would have same warrnaty as your computer system.
You would end up sepnding more money in repairing the LCD , getting a new one would be a better proposition

Thanks
