Question about Dell UltraSharp 1704FPT 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor
I have a dell dimension 3000 with a dell monitor model 1704fpt. I recently had to install a new hard drive and reload windows xp. When monitor came on everything was to large for the screen so I tried to change the display settings. Could not get it to change from the 640 mode. I tried install with the monitor disk, That did not work. I then went and downloaded a driver for the monitor and install it. That did not work. My computer does not recongize my monitor. It just says default monitor. I read something on the internet that says when the dell computer comes from the factory it has a *inf file installed on it telling the computer about it. But if you have to install or reinstall xp it deletes that. Does this make any sense, can someone tell me how to fix this problem. Where can I get this inf file.
No drivers are needed for monitor. Its the video card drivers that you should look for at the dell drivers and downloads website. make sure that you have the right driver installed so that you may be increase your screen resolution.You may also use your Dell Resource CD Drivers and utilities. Install the Resource cd, On the TOPICS dropdown box, select drivers,You'll know which drivers needs to be installed because they will have a check mark infront of the correct device driver. Clicke extract button after you have chosen the video driver. You may need to scroll down.Restart the computer.
