Question about Dell E173FP 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

I can't see all of the screen at one time

The screen requires that I scroll to the right and left to see all of the information - changing the screen resolution on the control panel doesn't seem to help. I've been working on this for hours. Please help! I'm sure it's a simple fix - I just can't get it!

The Dell E173FP is one of the cheapest in their line, and is fairly good value for money, the panel only has a Vga input so the image
quality isn't quite as good as it could be with DVI input.
unistall any video card that you have installed. use the VGA output on the back panel.
The monitor maximum resolution in 1280x1024 although it can be run at down to 640x480. When it is at anything but its native resolution the image looks a little distorted and washed out as it is stretched to fit the screen. When at native resolution it has a good picture though, clear and fairly bright, although maybe a little darker than other screens with a brightness rating of only 250cd/m^2, compared to an average brightness of 4-500cd/m^2 on recent panels.
so with say, there is not much you can do to adjust the screen to the best you can and make sure the frequecy is set at 60Hz.

Why does everything on my screen look so small?


Hi:
One thing you can try is to right click your mouse, and go to properties, and lower your screen resolution settings. The higher the settings, the better quality picture, but icons and writing will get smaller and smaller. You just need to set it to something that is good for you! After you change it, you have about 30 seconds to accept your change, or it will go back the way it was.

How do I get the websites to fit screen instead of having to scroll back and forth


Change your resolution until you get the one that works for you. You probably need to go to a lower resolution. Right click on an empty space on the desktop and then left click on properties in XP. On Vista right click and choose personalize, then Display Settings. In XP click on the Settings tab and change the resolution with the slider. Click Apply when you have what you want. In Vista match your monitor with the one displayed and then change the settings.

if your lucky it's just your H-center is off tilt. to check this Press the menu button on your monitor. scroll through the options till you see Horizontal-center option. select this setting and move the screen to the left. The entire screen should start shifting to the left and fill in the screen. now if you do this and you get a black bar on the right. Center the screen where you have the same amount of black on both sides of the screen. scroll through your menu till you see the H-size. increasing this will fill in the black area. Hope this helps.

Screen display


You have control buttons for the OSD either on the bottom or the side of your monitor.

Push and enter the set up and push buttons until you see the arrows that move the screen up or down, right or left.

Your model may have one of the buttons marked automatic. If so, pressing that one will center the display on your monitor.

Let us know if you still have a problem!

When I turn on my computer the monitor takes a long time to warm up and colors change and vertical lines flash across the screen from right to left before the screen becomes normal again. Now the power light even goes out upon turning on my computer and I have to unplug the video cord and plug it back in to start the screen back up which even takes longer.

Cant see right side of screen


If your kiddo "tinkered" on the keyboard, then it would look like the screen resolution or refresh rate was changed. The refresh rate is found under the display Advanced ---> Adapter ----> List all modes. Common refresh rates are 60, 72, 75, 85 and so forth, measured in hertz. These values are paired with the screen rssolutions, 800 x 600, 1024 x 768 and so forth. Selecting one of these modes will hopefully get you back to seeing the full display. Some video card driver/utility software has the capability of actually adjusting horizontal position left or right. This adjustment should also be accessed in the display properties. If the kiddo tinkered with the monitor buttons, then you must access the particular adjustment having to do with display horizontal width and horizontal position. One of the buttons gets you into the menu mode, another to the proper adjustment selection, from there two buttons are used to increase or decrease width, or move display left, move display right.
