Try going to the Dell or Microsoft Websites and loading a new display driver for Windows 7. When I first got Windows 7, both my monitor and printers required new drivers for Windows 7. It seems that Vista and XP drivers for a lot of things don't work on Win 7.
As far as I know there are no drivers needed for windows 7 for your Dell E173FP 17' LCD Monitor. Maybe you're referring to the Graphics card driver. Just look at the manufacturers website and they have the updated drivers on it. (Ex. NVIDIA, ATI etc.)
The Ultrasharp monitors need a good video card to drive the quality that you have come to know. The emachines lack the memory and quality to drive the monitor. If you don't have a 16meg video card with DVI, you will only get the basic analog qualities of the monitor. I have the same problem at work some of our older machines that have onboard graphics cards that are mediocre. However, when you plug the Ultrasharps into an NVIDIA 32meg card, the resolution is beautiful. I suspect that this is your problem.
If the computer is ON and the display is connected to the computer, the display will get out of energy save mode. If regardless of that you can't get your display working, sounds like you got a broken inverter driver.
sounds like you need to run a screen config wizard. If you have a true Nvidia driver you can do this. Otherwise, re-download the driver from the main website http://www.nvidia.com/page/home.html
and it'll work for you
This is not a monitor problem in almost all probability. It is either the website itself (they did not test it adequately for all operating systems and browsers...and if you are using something old or non-standard this could explain it...but more than likely you may be missing some (what I will call) interpretive software. Java would be an example or have some out of date software. Without knowing what Operating system or browser you are using I can only suggest making sure they are both update to the latest (compatible) version.
This sounds like your resolution is set too low,
right click on your desktop and select properties
Choose the settings tab from the window that appears, then you should be able to see a slider that tells you your screen resolution.
This is most likely set to 640 x 480, the setting you want should be in the region of 1024 x 768
If you are unable to change this setting, you need to check that your display adapter drivers are installed properly in "Device Manager"
