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.

My son got ahold of my iphone last night and changed the passcode on it and now he doesnt remember what it was. and i tried turning it off but it wont even turn off i need help please! thank you! :)


Your iPod most likely has now been disabled.
Step 1: Connect your iPod to your computer with the USB cable that came with the iPod.
Step 2: Open up iTunes and scroll down on the left side of the screen
Step 3: Choose your iPod, your right screen should now change to show some general information about your iPod.
Step 4: Scroll down on the right side of the screen until you see a button labeled "Restore". Click it, and it will unlock your iPod and reset it. This will wipe everything off of your iPod, but will sync it back with whatever you have in your iTunes library.
