How do I fit the desktop to the full screen of the monitor?


before you change your screen resolution, you should know first the dimension of your monitor..
this is the common screen resolution for 22 inch LCD monitor: 1600 x 1024 1920 x 1080 up to 3840 x 2400
Note: You can only use this resolution if your video card supports this given screen resolutions. You can set your resolution through configuring the display setup.

I have recently added a new Dell E171FPb to my computer .. I am running windows 7 connected to an onboard videocard (motherboard model : Gigabyte GA-8SIMLH) .. this monitor is only allowing me to view...


That is one of the reason I did not upgrade my PC for testing monitor to WINDOWS 7. This monitor is old and Dell will not make new driver for Windows 7, but Microsoft may be releasing the drivers later on since a lot of people is having problem with their perfectly working monitors but will not work properly with WIndows 7 because they cannot adjust the resolution to be at the native resolution of the monitor.
Microsoft WINDOWS 7: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/windows-7/en-us/Default.aspx?type=Hardware

Not much you can do at this point unless you can try hacking the old Dell driver to make it works with Windows 7.

Are you sure that it is "out of DATE" ???


Reconnect your old monitor.
Set the screen-resolution to 800-by-600 at 60 Hertz.
Shutdown.
Connect the new monitor.
Reboot.
The new monitor will be detected, and will run at 800 by 600 at 60 Hertz.
Change the screen-resolution to some higher value that both the new monitor, and your older video-card, will allow.

Monitor issue


Just sounds like the monitor cable is loose or bad or the input mode on the monitor is set wrong - set it to auto or step through the modes.

Dell e171fpb lcd monitor


The driver tabs between the LCD panel and it's controller board have failed.
These are very fragile and not repairable for anything in the cost effective range.
Best option is to either find a new panel to replace it, or get a new monitor.
