How can I adjust the font size on a Dell S2409W monitor?


Try this first. Right click on your desktop screen anywhere blank. Select Properties>Settings. Use the Screen resolution to adjust the pixels to 1280 by 1024. You can play around with these settings until you see what you like. You'll also want to make sure you have the latest Display drivers installed. If the solution doesn't work, then you will need to update these drivers before we go to the next step..

Dell GX260 has distorted video on Dell 19" widescreen. Circles turn into ovals.


Most likely the Display Resolution is not set to a 16:9 display aspect ratio (1366 x 768 for example) if you use a 4:3 ratio on a widescreen, then everything is distorted. Make sure the display is set to the optimal resolution You can look up you monitor's Optimal Resolution here:

16:9 resolution problem


You don't specify your machine type, or the operating system, but let's assume a desktop computer and Windows XP...

Was the monitor recognized properly by the video driver?

Go to Display Properties, settings, advanced, monitor and see if Plug and Play monitor is installed. All modern graphics cards talk to the monitor to discover it's capabilities and should adjust the available resolutions so that the monitor's native resolution is available for choosing.
If some other monitor is listed there, change it to Plug and Play monitor. If still having troubles, you can do two things:
- update the video driver for your graphics card
- find the monitor's .inf file (it should be on a CD that comes with the monitor, or can be downloaded from DELL site), and install this instead of the Plug and Play monitor or whatever you have in your monitor setup (as above, go to monitor - properties - update driver).

I have a Dell Monitor S2209W and it does not auto adjust when I change the resolution. It is connected to is a Dell PC running Windows XP. If I do not set the resolution to 1920 x 1080 the whole screen...


The S2209W is designed to be run at the optimal resolution of 1920 x 1080 http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/monitors/S2209W/en/ug/optimal.htm
selecting a lower resolution will result in generally unsatisfactory appearance. This is due to the hard wiring of the pixels in LCD screens.
What you can do to abate the text being too small is adjust the DPI setting from the default of 96 to 120, or even 144 if you need real large text

Dell E196FP resolution 1600 x 1200


LCDS only have a fixed resolution (optimal) so you either need a new lcd that supports the 1600X1200 resolution or use a crt (bulky monitors)
