When you start the computer do you see Dell logo and proper screen?
If the answer is "Yes" then screen is ok, then you need to uninstall and reinstall driver for video
If answer is "NO" then there is hardware problem and need to contact dell.

All the best

Changed VGA settings. When computed boots up I get a black screen. A small box displays the MSG - MODE NOT SUPPORTED. Is there a way to change the mode from the TV?

1. Let's power the computer off in order to boot it into "safe mode."

2. Restart your computer and start pressing the F8 key on your keyboard.

3. You will be presented with the Windows Advanced Options Menu that contains several options to choose from. In this case you will scroll down using the down arrow on your keyboard to the option, "Safe Mode" then press the "Enter" key on your keyboard.

4. The next screen should display "Please select the operating system to start:" typically the name of your version of windows will be displayed and highlighted in white, I recommend you just press "Enter" on your keyboard at this screen.

5. Now you will see a bunch of white writing scrolling about your screen and after a few moments you should be able to login to Windows.

6. You may receive a prompt asking if you really want to boot into Safe Mode. Choose Yes.

7. Once Windows is fully booted, you will be in safe mode.

8. Now right-click on the desktop

9. Choose "PROPERTIES"

10. The "DISPLAY PROPERTIES" menu will come up, then press on the "SETTINGS" tab

11. In this tab you will see a slider bar that can be slid from left: (Less) to right: (More). Slide the tab to the left toward the "Less" option. After positioning the slider to a lower screen resolution be sure to press "APPLY" then "OK" on the bottom of this menu

  • Usually a 1024×768 screen resolution will be sufficient for most monitors.

12. Now reboot your computer as you would normally and that lovely "VGA not supported" message should be long gone.

This is for Windows XP
1. Click on Start then Control Panel.
2. If control panel is set at Classic View, then double-click on the Display icon which is shown below:
Then go to Step 3.
Click on Appearance and Themes and then click on Display.
3. A box will pop up. Click on the Settings tab.

4. Click on Advanced.

Change the DPI setting to Normal size (96 DPI). If you have the value set on anything else, text on the HUD-1 will look jumbled on the screen.
Click OK and your computer will ask you to reboot your computer. Click Yes.

Try holding the stop button and the DVD dubbing button at the same time and waiting about 3 seconds. I had to do this twice, but it solved my problem.

If the squares are gone in safe mode it's safe bet that it's your graphics card driver. Uninstall drivers in add/remove programmes and re-boot your pc and see if the correct driver is re-installed. If at all possible it's best to use the driver from your notebook's manufacturer web site.
