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)

Adobe files not going to the application

Right click on your file, and then select Get Info (or click on the file once, then go to File -> Get Info, or select the file and press Command-I on your keyboard). This will open the Get Info window.
In the Get Info window, the Open With pane displays a pull-down menu with the application that is currently set to open the file. Click on that pull-down menu, and a pop-up list will display all the applications on your Mac that are able to open the file.
Move your mouse down the list and click on the application you want to open your file.
Now that you've changed the default program for this file, the button for Change All is active. This button will set your Mac to use the selected application to open files of this type. Click on that button.
On the dialog window that pops up asking if you are sure, click Continue.
Done. You can close the Get Info window. If you want to change the default application again or change it back to the previous application, just go through these steps again.

How do I make it so my windows fully open every time?

Not sure that I understand correctly...You want to open a program and want that window maximized (= filling the whole screen?)
Right-Click on your Program shortcut (either on the Desktop or in the Start menu) and go down to "Properties". The menu "Run:" is per default set to "Normal Window". Change to "Maximized" and this program will always open in full screen.
This is working for Windows XP, Vista and 7.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Find "Dell Support Center" in your list. Right click on that and click uninstall. When finished, retsrat computer. Now, go to link above and do the download. Restart again when finished. Look in programs and features to make sure it showed back up.

If i try to download something,like a video,it says connect media to save destination

You do not have a default program for your video viewing or that particular video requires a specific program to be used. Ensure that your computer has a video player such as Windows Media Player if you are using a Windows OS or that you have Quick Time if you are using a Mac OS. If these programs are already installed, then you may want to ensure that they are set to be the default program for that particular video.
Download the video, then right click the video and click the option that says "Properties". When the box appears, click open with and select either Quick Time or Windows Media Player. To avoid doing this for every video, follow the instructions below:
  • Open Windows Explorer by right-clicking the Start button, and then click Explore.
  • Click a folder that contains a file of the type that you want Windows to open in a program that you select.
  • Right-click the file and, depending on the programs installed on your computer, complete one of the following steps:
    • Click Open With to choose the program that you want.
    • Point to Open With, and then click Choose Program to choose the program that you want.
  • The Open With dialog box is displayed. Use one of the following methods to select the program that you want to use for this file type:
    • In the Programs list, click the program that you want to use.
    • Click Browse, locate and then click the program that you want to use, and then click Open.
    • Click Look for the appropriate program on the Web to browse the Internet for the program that you want to use.
  • Click to select the Always use the selected program to open this kind of file check box if it is not selected.

    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!
