You need to update your current video card built into the pc. Go to this link, it's for your GX260. Save this link in your favorites. You'll need to return here later as you update.

Open control panel, than open Display. Click the settings tab. Than click Advanced, click on the Adapter tab. You'll need to write down the Adapter type & the Adapter Information. Now you can download from the link the correct drivers for your video card.
Enjoy & take your time with this.

I have a dell Optiplex gx260. I bought a nice big Acer 23"monitor 1920x1030 but the max resolution in the graphics properties is 1280x1024 so I get a stretched screen or a poor resolution


jenny_beech

The resolution 1920x1030 is not a standard resolution. Also at the time this computer came out you did not have monitors this big ether. So you most likely will not be able to get 1920x1030 on this computer. However if you install the drivers for the monitor on the computer you should atleast get the right aspect ratio so you have poor resolution. You should have a CD with the drivers on in it. The llink below will show you haw to install them maually in Windows 7 if the drivers are not in an installer. Let me know if you need the steps for Windows XP.

Dell GX260 has distorted video on Dell 19" widescreen. Circles turn into ovals.


Most likely the Display Resolution is not set to a 16:9 display aspect ratio (1366 x 768 for example) if you use a 4:3 ratio on a widescreen, then everything is distorted. Make sure the display is set to the optimal resolution You can look up you monitor's Optimal Resolution here:

Screen resolution not changing even i changed it in the display properties. it is remaining same.When i was starting my desktop it is saying that your screen resolution is too low and colour depth is too...


Hello Friend,

Please visit below URl and download display drivers from "Video" section. If your computer having intel graphic card then please download intel driver or if your computer is having ATI graphic card then please download ATI driver

After downloading the driver install and reboot your system once.

This might fix your resolution problem.
