To joecoolvette reguarding 2005 compaq presario SR1000 and Dell LCD TFT monitor. The dell monitor was part of my mothers comp and I wasnt given a CD with it. Im sure she dont have it now. As far as the...


jason,
When a device is installed, Windows 'Breaks it's neck', to find a compatible driver, (Or drivers)

If THE driver is not present, then Windows will match up one of it's thousands, of generic drivers it has on hand.

Then if THE driver is installed, there is a driver conflict.

{Crude illustration}
Windows: 'Which drivers do I use? These or THESE?'

Let's try this;

{Based on Windows XP operating system}
1) Left-click on,
Start>
Control Panel>
Add/Remove Programs

When Add/Programs populates REMOVE the graphics cards software.
ALL of it. Anything you see associated with that graphics card.

Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
(If you are asked in Add/Remove Programs, if you wish to restart your computer - NO)

Shut your computer down normally.
(Start>Turn Off Computer>Shut Down)

Unplug your computer from power. Open the computer case, TOUCH the metal frame to relieve your body of Static electricity.
(Static will fry out your computer hardware components)

Remove the graphics card.

Press the Power On button in, and hold it in for a count of Five seconds. (And I mean Five. Count - 1001..1002..1003..1004..1005)

Let go of the Power On button.
Do this same procedure Two more times. (Imperative!)

What you are doing is clearing CMOS Error Codes, and resetting your BIOS Setup back to the factory default settings.

Now plug your monitor into the VGA port on the motherboard.
Plug your computer back into power.
WAIT 1 minute.
Turn your computer on.

When Windows has loaded all the way, put the CD disk for your graphics card in your optical drive tray. Load the software.

When you are finished, close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Shut your computer down normally.

Unplug your computer from power. TOUCH the metal frame. Install your graphics card.
Plug your monitor into the graphics card.
Close your computer case.

Plug your computer into power. WAIT 1 minute.
Turn your computer on.

If the resolution isn't correct:

Right-click anywhere on an empty spot of your desktop screen.
In the drop down menu, Left-click on Properties.
Now left-click on the Settings tab, all the way to the right.

Look down at where it states - Screen resolution, in blue.
(Halfway down the Display Properties window)

Is the pixel resolution what it should be?
If not, Left-click on the slider.

Hold your left mouse button down, and slide the slider, to where the resolution settings are correct for your Dell LCD monitor.
(To the left is Less. To the right is More)

Now go down to the right, and click on Apply.
Then go over to the left, and click on OK.

Don't know what the native resolution, for that Dell LCD Thin Film Transistor monitor should be?

Look it up on the internet using the Model Number, or give me the Model Number, and I'll look it up for you.

Pc will not turn on


I would be willing to bet your Power Supply has failed. A new supply should cost you less than 80 dollars and take no more than 15 minutes to install. Take out your old supply and take it to a Computer Shop to make sure you get the right style.

PC SHUTS DOWN MONITOR AND FAN


Hi Brandy19960,

Thanks for the posting in FIXYA.

Please do the following steps:


Step – 1

Right-click on My Computer, open Properties, click the Advanced tab. Under “Startup & Recovery,” click Settings. Under “System Failure,” Uncheck the box in front of “Automatically restart.”



Step - 2


To change the setting, click Start --> Run--> type GPEDIT.MSC, click OK.

Drill down to Computer Configuration | Windows Settings | Security Settings | Local Policies | Security Options.

In the right pane, find “Shutdown: Clear Virtual Memory Pagefile.”

NOTE: Since someone actually has to have set this policy, the problem will be pretty rare, but is worth mentioning. However, Forum participant “roadrunner” reported that the personal security app Privacy Eraser automatically enables “Clear virtual memory pagefile,” and, therefore, may be the cause of a slow shutdown.



Step - 3

When Windows XP won’t powerdown automatically, the APM/NT Legacy Power Node may not be enabled. To enable this, right-click on the My Computer icon, click Properties | Hardware | Device Manager | View. Check the box labeled “Show Hidden Devices.” If it’s available on your computer, there will be a red X on the APM/NT Legacy Node. Try enabling it and see if this resolves the powerdown problem (Tip from Terri Stratton). Or, to check the other side of the APM/ACPI coin, open the Power Options applet in Control Panel. If there is an APM tab, make sure the “Enable Advanced Power Management Support” box is checked.


Step - 4
----------

Try a Shutdown shortcut -


For a shortcut to RESTART Windows XP:
SHUTDOWN -r -t 01

For a shortcut to SHUT DOWN Windows XP:
SHUTDOWN -s -t 01

Step 5
---------

WORK-AROUND: Disable power management for your USB hub: Open Device Manager (click Start, click Run, type DEVMGMT.MSC, click OK). Double-click to expand Universal Serial Bus Controllers. Double-click USB Root Hub. Click Power Management. Uncheck the box “Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power.” OK your way out

Step – 6
-----------
Click on the Start button.
Select Run from the menu.
In the run dialog box type “msconfig”.
Click OK.

Once in the msconfig utility select the startup tab. In the startup tab you will see several programs listed with a checkbox beside it. If there is a check mark beside the application listed, the application will startup when your computer starts up.

Regards
ELLIN
