Question about Dell E172FP 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor

1 Answer

E172FP Dell Flat Panel

Upgraded to Vista Home Premium on Dell 2400, the graphics driver (82845g) is not supported. The Dell Monitor Software is in compatible with Vista. When I set to 1024x768 all I get is 8 bit - terrible graphics - makes Win95 look good.
Anyone know of a software solution rather than adding a newer PCI card ?

It is a "plug-and-play" monitor, which is fully-supported by Windows XP/Vista/7, in both 32-bit and 64-bit modes.

My dell monitor usb ports don't work anyone how to fix it?

Please check if the monitor's usb port is connected to the tower, the monitor only acts like a USB hub / junction. If it is connected then disconnect it from the existing USB port and connect it to a different USB port. Please refer to the monitor manual link given below

Thank you for contacting Fixya.
