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.

When my Dell Ustrasharp goes into energey saving mode, it won't come out of it. Otherwise, the monitor works fine. Anyone experienced the same problem?


Sometimes it is not the monitor itself, the monitor gets the signal from your pc, what U could do is to upgrade your video driver to the latest version, try factory reset your monitor if the firmware was not providing a solution

Plug the monitor into another computer to determine if the monitor is damaged or working properly. You can also plug another monitor into your computer to determine the same thing.

15" Dell monitor is blank-connected


there can be many issues why there is no screen on this other computer.

1. video card failure
2. No system boot "bios issues"
3. Cables not connected correctly
4. Bent pins

First you want to do some trouble shooting. If this monitor works with a computer and not working with another then obviously there are some issue with the computer itself.

Have you check the resolution that Windows is putting out?

Try booting in SAFE mode this will set the computer's resolutions to the lowest so you can see a image. Most monitors in this caliber cannot handle certain high resolution signals.

We are here to help please update us with any more information you may have such as:

Are you see-ing any boot up screens?
Do you hear the system actually boot?


Thanks for using Fixya.com I do hope this was very helpful information for you.

My computer froze while I was transfering files and when I restarted it my display shrunk and I can't get it to stretch to fit the screen. I tried using the buttons on the monitor but it says that it is...


In such cases the buttons do not work. Go to start->Control Panel->Display->Settings->Advanced->Monitor->Properties->Drivers. Here you will find an option of Uninstall drivers. Select it. and close all windows. Reboot the PC. Start->Control Panel->System->Hardware->Device Manager->Action->Scan for New HW. Windows will scan for new display and load its drivers. Your display would be alright.

Dell Inspiron 531 (desktop) won?t turn on/boot


You've either got a bad motherboard or a bad processor (I'd lean to the motherboard being bad). I would honestly take this into a computer repair shop and have them check both.

Dell SE198WFP 19" LCD won't come out of standby


I went into the BIOS (with F2 during restart) and changed a value -- IIRC it was called something like "power management scheme" -- from the default S3 to the other choice, S1. Now the old Dell XP Dimension 2350 will go into and out of Standby correctly and the new SE198WFP 19" LCD will too.
