Question about Dell XPS 400 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Have a computer (monitor) problem. I have a Dell pc using Windows XP, ver. 2002. Several wks ago, the system got locked up ( I guess) and I pushed a lot of keys. After that episode,the screen comes up with my normal 'desk top' screen - my icons show there with part of my backgrnd picture, but it looks like 'a sheet of white paper' was laid on top of about 80% of the right side of the screen. I have no clue on how to resolve this. You ahve any ideas? Thanks for any help. Larry

Laptop does not detect dell 2000FP


NO PC stated(wow 1)
are you web connected, if now why expect PnP to work>?
you do not need any drivers for any monitor.
the config files for it only limit max resolution

why not lower the resolution your self in windows
to 1600 x 1200 at 60 Hz !!!
then it works , every time that is if the CCFL lamps are not dead, as all are now. those lamps do not last 15 years, if used for 15 years.
not possible.
buy a 2010 or newer LED monitor and dump this ping in the bin.
drivers are only for GPU chips only (screen answers)
the monitor runs a config file only, you can even read it and edit it of you wanted

this monitor was first made in 2001, yah 17 years ago
and microsoft does not support monitors that old. now.


the unstated PC , needs to be core2 and intel gen 5 and newer
or you can not upgrade to w10 .
64bit rules are not the same w7 and 10,
w7 is more lax but do consider the facts on 10.
why post lacking what PC this is.?
my guess its a relic of no value, at all.
some old XP box from 2001?

My GX520 pwr light is green, on the board is an amber Led, the somputer boots up, it goes the full process, until the arrow appears on the monitor. no Iconn are displayed on the desktop


If your computer gets to that stage, then I would guess you have an OS ( Operating System ) problem. Try booting from your XP installation CD. If that works then you may have to re-install Windows.

If you hit <F12> key upon boot-up and the monitor displays a boot menu, then you probably have an issue with your XP software. Meaning that you may have to re-install XP (by the way, XP is no longer supported).

You need a new driver for the monitor. Are you now using a new Operating System? Perhaps Windows 7? Go to the http://dell.com websit and look up your monitor under downloads and drivers. Fidn the compatible driver for your operating system and download it.

I have an old Princeton VL 173 that I had been using with an old computer running Windows XP Pro. It works fine. Got a computer with an Asus MB and a Intel Core 2 Quad running Windows 7 Home Premium...


It sounds like a driver/software issue. When you ran the Princeton VL173 on XP you probably had all the correct software for your video card and the correct drivers to support your video output. When you changes OS to Windows 7, the XP drivers are no longer in place. My best guess is that you need to find and install the correct drivers for your system video and for your video card that are Windows 7 compatible. The old XP drivers will not work in Windows 7.

I am running XP with a Princeton VL173. It works great. I identified the correct video drivers for my system and installed them. My video card is nVidia 8800GT. I downloaded and installed the latest software from nVidia and installed it. It runs like a champ.

Several months ago my display died. It was just blank -- black. I tried using a power supply (AC adapter) from an old HP printer that died, and it worked! The plugs were identical, and the power output profiles were very nearly identical. It has been rinnung great for many months now.

I hope this helps.

Have you tried setting the resolution using display settings in control panel?
Go to control panel search for display. There you will find option to select monitor and resolution.

Hey, you can probably buy a windows 98se copy from ebay
or with some luck from a local pc shop / repair shop.

Microsoft stoped supporting windows 98 many years ago, and its no longer in production. So my guess is no.

Your best shot is to get it used.
