The monitor (19-inch, non-flat screen, 0.24 dot pitch) presented a more than acceptable image, even at its maximum supported resolution (1600X1200 @ 75Hz). We settled on a more reasonable 1280x1024 @ 85Hz as our preferred setting. According to the documentation, the recommended resolution is 1280x1024 @ 75Hz .Many of the newer LARGE monitors are limited to 60Hz and/or a larger dot pitch...So..look for a low dot pitch(below 0.27) and the ability to run at 1280X1024@75Hz . Passed that, the size is up to you.

Reinstalled Windows XP on an old computer (DELL Dimension 2400) and the monitor won't display above basic resolution. Downloaded and reinstalled the monitor driver and still no good. Opened up START


According to the Dell Support web site the Dell Dimension 2400 has a built in Intel 3D extreme graphics adapter, assuming you are using this and not a PCI graphics card.

Go to the Intel Download Centre and run their Intel Driver Update Utility which will automatically scan your system for updated drivers for any installed or integrated Intel devices.

If the Intel Utility identifies an updated driver for your graphics adapter then download and install that which should enable you to configure a higher resolution for your display.

I have a Dell Dimension 2400 that I am running dual monitors on. I recently upgraded to Windows 7 professional from Windows XP and now I can't get both monitors to run at the same time. I have a Nvdia...


You should have 2 video ports on the 8400 GS card. One is the standard 15 pin VGA port and the other is the DVI port. You should be able to use these ports on the card to connect dual monitors. If you use the video port integrated on the motherboard you will bypass the 8400 GS card. Here's a link from Microsoft about running dual displays:

The other issue is whether your monitors are DVI compatible.

The screen on my dell 2400 desktop flash but won't come on


Remove the video card from the computer and connect the monitor to the integrated vga port, check if that helps, or else look at the back of the tower or on the front you would find four diagnostic lights, post the status ot them

Does the dell dimension 2400 has an output to connect the to tv


You will either need a new video card with a compisite (yellow connector) or a s-video connector (looks like the end of a mouse), or somthing called a scan converter. Either of these products will allow you to use your telivison as a monitor for your computer. The last option is to get a telivision with a monitor connection on it. They are called SVGA connectors. If you go this way, you will need a Male to Male SVGA cable. Good Luck!

Dear Chuck:

I have a Dell Dimension 2400. Those came standard with a 15 inch monitor. Go to the blank screen, right click and click on properties, then click on settings, your resolution should be set to 1024 by 768. Or click on start, then click on control panel, double click on display, then click on settings, again your resolution should be set to 1024 by 768. If this does not solve your problem, then you need to find the correct video drivers for your monitor and download them.
