Re: Dell NVidia 17" Monitor

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 Java would be an example or have some out of date software.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.

Need driver that is compatible with windows 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.)

Hope this helps.

Compaq fs740 text too faint and fuzzy to read well

Firstly you need to switch to the monitor's optimal resolution of 1024x768 @ 85Hz and before anyone posts anything about resolution 1024x768 @ 85Hz is the optimum not the maximum. To change to this resolution: Assuming you are using Windows XP click with the right mouse button an an empty part of the desktop and select Properties (or click Start, then click Control Panel then click Display), on the Settings tab, under Screen resolution, drag the slider bar until it says 1024x768 and then click Apply. Also in Display settings you'll find an advanced button, in the advanced panel you'll see the option to adjust the refresh rate, try adjusting this to 85Hz. Now press the Menu Button on the front of the monitor and press + of - until you see an option called "Degauss" and press the select button on the front of the monitor, your screen will do a disturbing jump and flicker accompanied by a metallic thud, this is normal. If this doesn't help message back.

Dell monitor model 1907fpt not recognized in Ubuntu OS and defaults to 899x600. Am not able to find suitable fix on line. Please advise. thanx!

I had a similar problem with my monitor.. I installed the nVidia graphics package from the Package Manager and then upped the resolution .
You'll have to make sure you know if your graphics card is nvidia or ati, though..

Hope this helps

Lack of contrast and faded text

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.

My AOC 17" CRT monitor displays large veiw on DOS & some PC DOS games where the top portion is displayed at the bottom of the screen.

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
and it'll work for you

Dell P780 17" CRT Monitor(3 yrs old) issue

That sounds like a monitor issue, not a video card. Gradual fading means components within the monitor are wearing out. However, I strongly advice against attempting repairs. CRT monitors hold a strong electrical charge. People have been injured and even killed by attempting to work on them without proper tools and training. A 17" CRT monitor is too cheap to be worth the risk (you can often get them used... I got mine for $20 at Goodwill).

Display is extremely large

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"
