Question about Dell Latitude C400 Notebook

1 Answer

I upgraded my laptop Dell C400 to windows XP but now can not change display resolution. Only option is 640x480. Went to http://support.dell.com/support/download. and got a bunch of drivers for C400; however, when clicking "Download" on the video drivers, the following file is saved in my desktop "DellDriverDownloadManager.application" My computer doesn't seem to understand this extension. I read the driver installation instruction and they say I must install the NSS (Notebook System Software) under System Utility category first; however, there is not NSS driver on the System Utility folder. The instruction also says next I should install the Chipset in the Chipset category, but no Chipset folder exist in the C400 drivers categories. I've done all can do with my limited knowledge on computer software. Any help will be much appreciated

Right click on the desktop and a pop up menu will appear. Three items off the bottom select 'Screen Resolution' and click it. A new window will appear, in the centre are 4 options, choose the drop down menu (small black triangle) against Resolution. It will most likely be showing 640x480 in the window. Click the drop down menu and select your required resolution, the best one for your video card will have (recommended) against it. Click OK and wait for your screen to refresh. You should see a confirmation message asking to OK the change. If you do not see that DO NOT TOUCH any keys or buttons for a minute or so. If the screen went black and stayed that way you have chosen the wrong one. By leaving the keys alone for a minute, the display will automatically revert to the last setting thereby giving you the option to try a different setting. If you touch anything whilst the screen is black you may not see anything again, be warned!

You can't, as there is no Windows 7 Driver for the Intel Integrated graphics, the only option is an Expansion video card (PCI) that has windows 7 support

After upgrading my c400 to XP, the screen resolution is not right


try logging into support.dell.com get a driver for windows 2000 for the video card you have. Sometimes that driver will work for the XP session OK (XP will gripe about loading it but continue anyway.)

Good Luck
