Question about Dell E173FPb 17" TFT LCD Monitor
I had to reformat my hard drive and reinstall Windows XP after some problems. Now my monitor is stuck in 16bit color and 640 by 480 pixels. I tried to find a driver on the dell website but they don't have this model number. when I tried the driver for E173FP it crashed my monitor and I had to reinstall Windows XP agian.
Install your video card drivers...
you didnt have to reinstall Windows...you needed to uninstall the driver from safe mode.
depending on your system, the video card drivers should be on the manufacturer should have the drivers on their website. If its a Dell: support.dell.com
Hope that this helps you.
P.s. you may also want to get the soundcard, chipset and ethernet drivers. it will help you alot. When you reinstall Windows, it doesnt come back as you recieved it new. It comes barebones, nothing but the O/S.

Distorted video after increasing the resolution in Windows.
The resolution has been set higher than what is supported by the monitor, ... we recommend 640 x 480 with 256 colors or the lowest available setting.
Computer always boots into Windows safe mode. When booting into safe mode, the lowest settings are used, including your video card. This means that the resolution is 640x480, 16 colors when in safe mode.
