Question about Dell Dimension 4500 PC Desktop

Color display problem

I have a 4500S Dell and recently loaded Windows XP Pro onto it. It has come up with a problem with the color display that I do not understand or know what to do to solve the problem.

The color grid displays on 4 colors and says it is the max setting if you go to the settings box for the display unit. It had fine color before that happened. Could XP Pro have caused this problem and how does it get fixed?

Seen this problem numerous times firstly you have to install your graphics accelerator driver and restart you system if that does not work then you will have to re install you windows operating system maybe even install a different version if you have one and then update to the one you wish to use. this problem is caused by you os not being able to recognise the graphics interface chip on your motherboard but try above and you problems will be solved. thanks

You need to download and install the video drivers for it. Look in the device manager and you should see a bunch of yellow exclamation points. That means the drivers are missing.

Go to support.dell.com and put in your service tag and then find the drivers you need.

This is the direct link to the drivers for your model.
