Question about Dell E173FP 17" LCD Monitor
My monitor is not installed, but yet it still works, the resolution is very low and so is the color-bit. It won't give me the option to change them, how do i fix this?
Sounds like the driver needs to be installed.
If the monitor came with a CD the drivers will be on it. I can't tell you exactly how it will look, since I don't have a CD for that monitor, but insert the CD and something should pop up on the screen with an option to install the driver for you monitor.
If you don't have a CD that came with the monitor, here's a link to download it from Dell:

By "installing" the monitor. Install the proper driver for your particular monitor and it will work and allow you to adjust resolution. "Uninstalled" monitors use a default system driver that lets you see something so you can install the proper drivers.
