I have only heard of this once before and it was the bios for the monitor was not storing the settings for the screen resoloutions.
When you first run an LCD it sets all of this and stores the refresh rates etc in the LCD's bios. If that begins to fail, then it can not remember being used at that resoloution and will ask you to set it up as it would in the factory.

You would need to get the exact same bios chip for your monitor from DELL (good luck)

Too wide screen


change the resolution in one that fits better ..To change it try to right click on desktop choose properties..and in the window that opens choose setings ..you will have a slide button for resolution ..change them into one with equilibration between the width and length ..for example if it is a 1280 /768 ...set one to 1.24 on 768 ..will be almost 3/4 ..

My monotor its all black but u can


This should be an (LCD) screen. They are the ones that usually have this kind of problem. You will need to take it to have it checked if the problem is the VGA signal cable leading to the monitor. They will check if it is properly connected or has gone bad. It is very unlikely that the screen is bad. When this VGA signal cable goes bad it could result in a totally blank screen.

Changing font size for larger monitor.


You can adjust your settings to something more to your liking by right clicking on your desktop in an empty area - then choose "properties" from the menu that pops up.

In the new window go to the tab that says "settings" and adjust the screen resolution to something a little larger. If you change your desktop settings in this manner then a window will pop up immediately after the adjustment asking you if you want to keep the new settings or revert back to the old one. If you don't select something within like 15-30 seconds it will change back. It does that just in case you change the settings so bad you can't see anything.

Another place to adjust the size of your fonts is to go to the "appearance" tab of the same menu and look for "font size" and there you can make your fonts bigger and ridiculously big, in case you still need to after changing the resolution.

I hope you find this information helpful, have a blessed day!

Bought new screen today


Based upon the Operating System you can change the aspect ratio from 19:9 to 4:3. In windows you can right click anywhere on the free space on your desktop once the menu pop-up click on properties and then setting. once the window open choose the different resolution.

Resolution notice keeps popping up every thirty seconds or so. very annoying. this happens only when using cd rom game diablo. wants me to change to 1280x1024, which my computer is set at now. otherwise...


When you load the splash screen of Diablo enter into settings. Make sure you have the game set to the screen resolution you want.
For the system. Open display properties. Click Settings, click Advanced, click Monitor. (Most games require 60 hertz) to run correctly. Change your monitor to 60 hertz. Than click the Adapter tab. Click list all modes. Move the slide bar to your normal screen res with 60 hertz. Click ok at every screen as you back out od display properties. That should stop your game from popping up.
