Question about Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop

1 Answer

AMW 19" LCD Monitor

I have to reset the resolution every time I sit down to my desktop. I have reset both the display (monitor) and the nVdia graphics setting at the same time...at different times...and each on their own. But the resolution always goes back to 8 bit.The monitor is only a year old. This (and many other) problem started after I installed Norton. Can you help oh Mighty Guru?

Go to NVDIA web site download the latest driver.
you need at least 32bit color to setup the monitor.
the 8-bit color is a default, that is why the monitor alway return to default size which is 800x600.
19" monitor should have minimum of 1280x1024 with 32 color.
don't up the color 256bit. the color will be off on the monitor.

I have a message on my monitor that says, Out of Range. What can I do about it?


you need to change your screen resolution. the best way would be to hook it up to a bigger monitor or a television- one that can handle the present screen resolution, and then back the resolution down before re-hooking up the 19" monitor.

or you could boot in safe mode, uninstall the video driver, and then reinstall the driver, to reset the screen resolution to a basic resolution.

to change your screen resolution (hooked up to a different monitor) right click on the desktop and select "properties" in xp or "personalization>screen resolution" in vista/7.

Trying to run monitor from my lap top and goes in to autoconfig and I see my desktop, when autoconfig is complete, I get blank screen.


In general more info is required, but most likely this is an issue with your display settings. Try the following:

1) Try pressing the Fn and Display buttons (at the same time) on your laptop. Try it once, twice, and then a 3rd time.

Chances are that your laptop is displaying in a resolution that is not completely compatible with your monitor, so when the display settings are switched from laptop LCD and montor, to monitor only, the resolution should adjust automatically.

2) If that doesn't help you, try lowering or adjusting the resolution on your laptop. If in XP, right-click on the desktop and go to Properties, and select the tab for display settings and adjust it. If in Vista/7, right-click the desktop and select Screen Resolution/Display Settings and adjust it there.

Good luck. Let us know what happens!

Only getting extra large picture


Please right click on your monitor desktop

Click on "Properties"

Click on "Settings"

Look for "Screen Resolution" down at the bottom.

see if the resolution is "1024 by 768"

if not then make it "1024 by 768"

Also check "Color Quality" is set to "Highest (32 bit)"

If not then make it "Highest (32 bit)"

Click apply and screen resolution will be changed.

If it does not change then please check your graphic card drivers.

Cheers

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.

Plugged in a new 23 inch LG LCD Monitor and cannot get picture


In additio to the fine help given by Mister.

If you have a DVI output on your computer get the cable for that and this will greatly increase the quality of your display.

Your graphics card should be able to autodetect a DVI monitor and suggest the best display type.

No Signal


Not all monitors can display the same resolutions. You may have has the Dell monitor set at something the Acer can not handle. Try rebooting and if you can see the Dell startup screen press F8 as soon as it disappears. This will give you the Windows Startup Options menu, which is text and should display on any monitor. Then select VGA MODE, which is the lowest common denominator for graphics. You should be able to see the Windows display at a much lower resolution (ie, larger fonts and icons) than usual until you can reset your graphics properties to work with the new monitor.
