    Have you installed the drivers for your ethernet card and video card? If not, unless there is a driver native to Windows you probably will not be able to connect to the net or get anything more than 16 bit display. You may have luck going to the dell site on a working computer, putting in your service tag, and then downloading the drivers onto a media that your non-working PC can read and installing them from there.

    Good luck

    Yes, hope this helps:

    1. Hold down Alt + Spacebar
    2. Press the M key
    3. Use the arrow keys to relocate the window
    4. Press the Enter key when you have the Window in the desired location.

    Once you press the "M" key, you can also use your mouse to move the window, just look for the 4 arrows an the top of the window.

My monitor gives 16-bit color at 640x480, but will only offer 256 colors at 1024x768 -- and only displays 16 colors when I select that... In order to access resolution options, I have to go into Advanced...

The monitor has no influence here - something is wrong with your video card: either its driver is missing (or corrupted) or the video chip has failed.
Uninstall all the drivers for the video(except the generic VGA one), from Programs and Device Manager
and reboot several times then go to Dell
select your pc and get the correct driver.
If that doesn't fixes it then the video chip has failed, you will need to buy a new video card.

I need to change the screen resolution and the slider bar under display will not move from 640 x 480 or 16 bit. I just had to reinstall Windows XP pro after it crashed and I didn't have the problem...

Hi Friend, As you have told me that you have reinstalled Windows on the system and after that you are not able to select the screen resolution. So, I believe that you might try updating the video drivers for the system that can fix the issue.
Here is the link of latest video drivers for Dell:
Please yry and let me know if it was of help.

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.
