It is just probably the brightness settings. to adjust brightness, simply go to control panel, if you are watching folder wiev, where you see all options you have, find the one saying power settings, now there should be, either in the tab to the left, or in the main-window, a link saying adjust brightness, follow that link, and you should be able to adjust your screens brightness. But, if your setting are divided into category wiev, i.e. hardware and sound, user accounts and family setting and so on. Enter the hardware and sound folder, find the power setting link, either in the tab to the left, or in the main-window, when you have, follow the link, called adjust brightness, again, either in the tab to the left, or in the main windows.

Installed windows 7 on a dell sx260 with gem 17 lcd cant get display drivers to work?screen all dis colored


Try going to the Dell or Microsoft Websites and loading a new display driver for Windows 7. When I first got Windows 7, both my monitor and printers required new drivers for Windows 7. It seems that Vista and XP drivers for a lot of things don't work on Win 7.

Good Luck

I have an old Dell c600 and have just installed Windows 2000. My display is only taking up half the size of the total area - how can i expand it to fill the whole screen please?


Hi collywebs,

Go to this support site for the Dell C600 running Windows 2000. Not only can you download your video driver, but all drivers for your laptop, including all components. The video driver will be at the bottom of the page.
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=04&l=en&s=bsd&os=WW1&osl=en&SystemID=LAT_PNT_P3C_C600&catid=-1&impid=-1

If you have moved your operating system to XP/XP Pro, this same driver should work also. This driver should allow your display to fill the screen in the proper aspect ratio.

I hope this helps your situation. Thanks.

Regards, Bill

Dell E1705...Same problem...lights on boot up


If the screen goes dark after BIOS, there is a software conflict - either a driver or screen resolution was set incorrectly. a couple of ideas to solve:
boot from disk, or another hard drive - if this works, it confirms the software conflict - which would mean having to re-install the OS.

You should first check device manager for any issues with Network drivers.

Start--> Run --> devmgmt.msc

This command will launch "Device manager" window.

If you see a Yellow exclamation mark in device manager for NIC, follow the following steps to identify the card that is installed on your computer.

  1. Open Device Manager (Right-click My Computer>Properties>Hardware>Device Manager)
  2. The hardware whose drivers are missing will appear as Unknown device, so it’s easier to locate the device.
  3. Right click on the unknown device and click on Properties.
  4. Under the Properties window click on Details tab and select Device Instance Id from the drop down box.
  5. You should see a code similar to this
    PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27DC&SUBSYS_30868086&REV_01\4&1E46F438&0&40F0
  6. The portion of the code highlighted in RED is the Vendor ID and the portion highlighted in GREEN is the Device ID. In this example:
    Vendor ID = 8086
    Device ID = 27DC
  7. Once you have obtained both the IDs, proceed to www.pcidatabase.com . There you can either search for the vendor from the vendor ID or directly get information about the device along with the vendor name by searching with the device ID.
After you find out the information about the device and the manufacturer of the device, you can visit the manufacturer’s website and download the corresponding device drivers.

Cannot display this video mode optimum resulotion 1280*1024 60hz


Hi,

Chances are that the video driver for XP and 2003 differs (even if only slightly). You might want to start the 2003 in "Safe Mode" first to lower both the Screen Resolution and Screen Refresh Rate to the lowest possible. Thereafter do an update on the video card driver compatible with 2003 from the Dell.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
