Hi Danny - Right click anywhere in the middle of your desktop, just not on any icons. Click on properties. Click on the settings tab. On the lower left is a slide where you can change your resolution. Say yes to accept without restarting. If you don't like it you just do the same thing to change it back. If this solved your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If you need more help just add a comment and I'll be glad to assist you further. Thanks and have a nice day.

Reinstalled Windows XP on an old computer (DELL Dimension 2400) and the monitor won't display above basic resolution. Downloaded and reinstalled the monitor driver and still no good. Opened up START


According to the Dell Support web site the Dell Dimension 2400 has a built in Intel 3D extreme graphics adapter, assuming you are using this and not a PCI graphics card.

Go to the Intel Download Centre and run their Intel Driver Update Utility which will automatically scan your system for updated drivers for any installed or integrated Intel devices.

If the Intel Utility identifies an updated driver for your graphics adapter then download and install that which should enable you to configure a higher resolution for your display.

So I reinstalled windows xp to my demnsion 5100 desktop. when the computer start the screen resolution is so big. I try to change the resolution to small but it will not save. it configures and then it...


After Reinstalling Window XP did you install the driver for your graphic adapter (VGA driver). If you'll not install the graphic driver it happen with the resolution, and about your mouse. you might be using USB mouse and it need to install driver too, but in case of your mouse window automatically takes the driver , you don't need to do anything.

I believe you might be canceling the installation of HUMAN INTERFACE DEVICE installation during the time of your window start up process.

About your Display, I hope you might have the proper driver installation CD.

All The BEST and hope i could help you.

You need to download new video drivers from the computer manufacturer or go to Windows Update and let windows update all your hardware drivers. When windows finishes searching for drivers it will give you the choice of express or custom. Click on custom and look in the left pane. choose Hardware, Oprional. Download and install the selected drivers. Reboot the laptop and reset your video options.

I can't change the resolution, after reinstalling windows xp sp3.


You are using the default video driver.
You need to install the video driver for your video adapter.
If you monitor plugs into the motherboard go to the motherboard manufacturer's website.
If it plugs into a separate card that is plugged into the motherboard then you need to go to the card manufacturer's website. ATI and Nvidia are the most popular manufacturers.
