You will have to get a "Driver" for your Video Adapter. This WILL be a problem as there probably isn't one. There may be one shot, try this. Download your Video Adapter's XP driver you wish to install. If it's in a zip/rar file then extract it to your desktop. You should have a simple .exe file sitting on your desktop to install the drivers, as normal for XP. Right click the .exe file and select "Properties". Then select the tab called "Compatibility" Now check the box next to "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" Make sure "Windows XP Service Pack 2" is highlighted. Now apply the settings and run the installer. This should work for most drivers, but not all
The drivers are here INTEL, right at the bottom.http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?os=WW1&catid=-1&dateid=-1&impid=-1&osl=EN&typeid=-1&formatid=-1&servicetag=&SystemID=INS_PNT_P4_1150&hidos=WLH&hidlang=en&TabIndex=

Windows 7 - adjust monitor screen??? using a 15" monitor and now have black space around picture.


Control Panel/Appearance and Personalization/Display/Adjust resolution. Try higher resolutions on the list.
If that doesn't do it I would go to Device Manager, and update driver for display adapter. May need to go to the manufacturers website
and Support Tab for drivers.

    Problem in install winxp


    Your upgrade options
    If you want to upgrade your system to Windows XP, the first thing you need to do is verify that it meets the system requirements for the newer operating system.
    You will need:
    • Windows 98 or later version of Microsoft Windows operating system.
    • At least a 233Mhz processor. Any manufacturer (AMD, Intel, IBM, VIA, etc.) will do.
    • At least 128MB of system memory.
    • 1.5 Gigabytes of free hard drive space (note that you should have at least 3 gigabytes if you want to do any meaningful work with your system after the upgrade).
    • A CD-Rom or CD/RW drive.
    • Mouse and keyboard (either USB or PS/2).
    • A video adaptor and monitor capable of displaying 800x600 resolution. If you are not sure about this, change the resolution within Windows 98 by right clicking on an empty area of the desktop and selecting 'properties' then going to the 'settings' tab. The resolution slider is at the bottom left. Set it to '800x600' and click 'apply.' If your screen is still legible, you are fine. If the 800x600 option is unavailable, you may need to upgrade your video adaptor before upgrading Windows.
    Note that if the screen becomes scrambled, blank or unreadable, you will probably need a new monitor as your current one cannot handle the required resolution. If your system meets the minimum requirements for Windows XP, it's time to find out which version of the operating system you can upgrade to.
