Question about Dell Dimension 4500 PC Desktop

2 Answers

Still have color problem as identified beforeon Dell Model DHS.

I have tried to download the drivers recommended, and install them. Cannot because I am not an administrator according to the computer. Cannot change anything.

Can I set myself up as the administrator, or would it be best to reformat the entire C drive and load an earlier Windows version and then upgrade to Windows XP Pro? I was thinking about putting Windows ME there to upgrade but would like some advice or recommendations concerning that.

Not sure I can even reformat the hard drive at this point since I am not the administrator.

Please advise.
