    Same situation (replaced hard drive, reinstalled XP). Mitsubishi V50 LCD monitor "stuck" in default. I have installed chipsets from Dell (I have a Dimension 2350), which didn't help the monitor problem. I can't seem to get a monitor driver that will install. Is the monitor driver my problem, and if so, how do I obtain and then properly install it?

I think the first problem was that you did not load the drivers for the on-board video. And the problems you are having now may also be due to not loading drivers - in this case the chipset drivers for the motherboard. If you go to the vendors web site for the machine or motherboard, they should have all the drivers you need to get your machine running properly. If you give us some info on the brand of machine or mobo, we can then tell you where to get them.

I downloaded drivers for dell E193FPp monitor. the only files in the download are 2 text docs, a setupinformation, ICC profile, and security catalog files. no .exe file. how do i install driver?

in most cases you will not need to install drivers for you monitor. These drivers are for windows XP and 2000 - so if you have a later version you should not need them.
For windows XP or 2000 you should have a readme file... if not then download the Dell drivers from
Run the program and it should extract to a place on your hard drive, and once complete it should open the location with the following files, E193FP.ICM, E193FP.inf, Readme.txt and Version.txt
The Readme file gives you instructions on how to install for XP and 2000

When I turn On Power the green light on th ON buttom Blinks continous. the screen does not come On.

The button should not be blinking unless it has the power led light on it which should be blinking.
Well this is an indication that there is no communication between the CPU and the monitor. Either the CPU is not working or is faulty may be because booting problem or the cables connecting the cpu to the monitor (VGA) cable is faulty.
Check them If it is the CPU with the problem, you have to check and see that all its hardware is in order i.e. well fixed. Make sure there are no loose cables in the connections.
If all these are OK, check to see that the booting order in the BIOS set up is OK. make the cd as the first booting source and the Hard Drive as the second. Disable the rest just to be sure that there is no other booting source the computer is trying to use. If it still doesn't work, reverse the boot order. Set the hard drive as the first booting source and the cd the second. If still not working, set the CD as the first booting source and then the hard drive the second and insert a bootable cd with the same operating system as the one initially used by the machine or of a higher version and boot from the machine from the cd. If you don't want to loose your files, you will go through the recovery console process
Next, Windows Setup will find existing Windows XP installations. You will be asked to repair an existing XP installation or install a fresh copy of Windows XP.If no installations are found, then you will not be given the option to repair. This may happen if the data or partition on your drive is too corrupted.
  • Please make sure it is the same version of Windows that is currently installed on your computer (ex. XP Home cannot repair XP Professional). Place the CD in your CDROM and start your computer. Newer versions will work as well (ie. Windows XP Pro SP2 CD will work on an older WinXP Pro SP1 installation)

    you will be asked to press any key to boot from CD, so do just that.

    Step 3: System repair steps
  • A blue screen will appear and will begin loading XP setup from the CD.

    simply let the CD load without pressing F6.

    Once completed, you will be confronted with "Windows Setup". You will be asked to setup up Windows, or repair Windows with the recovery console. Choose the FIRST option, NOT recovery console.
Choose F8 to continue.

That should be it. Windows XP will appear to be installing itself for the first time, but it will retain all of your data and settings. Just follow the prompts

Just updated from XP to windows 7 64bit. At boot

Your Video driver is NOT compatible with Win 7. It's that simple unless you can get a Win 7 64 bit Driver, you will always have problems, It may work in Compatability mode, for XP SP2, it's worth a try.

Will not let me see videos on Youtube becaause of flash player not installed When i installed it it said You need a newer version of windows.

What version of Window do you have ?
Win 98, Win 98se, Windows 2000 don't have newer program written for them. Most programs only support XP / Vista. If you have flash Ver. 6 and YouTube requires Ver. 8 or above. You're out of luck. I've had to dump all my Win98/ Win 2000 PC because of that problem in my school. Web is all Flash/ Shockwave anymore.

Can not load f1903 software on microsoft xp system

This has nothing to do with your monitor. Windows has default drivers that will be installed for that.
The problem will be your video card drivers are not installed.
Get the right drivers for your card, install them and you should be away.

Computers? Easy??

If you are trying to boot with a cd then you need to have your cd rom drive as the first boot option, which is in the bios (f2 or DEL on boot up). I you have your own windows CD, then you can format the hard drive using the cd.
