Question about Dell UltraSharp 2005FPW 20.1" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Dell 2005FPW doesn't display native resolution

I have one 2005 at home and another at work.  When I hook up my brand new Macbook Pro to my home dell, it displays at 1680x1050 no problem.  When I try the same thing on the work one, it doesn't offer the resolution at all in my displays panel. The closest I can come is 1400x1050.  Isn't that weird?

    You know, I got around this problem by using a DVI cable at work. It powers up with 1680x1050 with the DVI. I'm still using the s-video converter cable at home and as I said, it works there. So I guess I'll let it go. Still very weird, though. Thanks.

Send me the PPID Numbers of both monitors, (20 digit serial number) and I'll see if I can find out anything about the monitors that is different.

Installed Dell 1905fp monitor -- message showing "analog input - cannot display this video mode"


The native resolution of this monitor is 1280x1,024 2 60Hz, your PC video card resolution is set too high for it to display. Bootup in safe mode (hit F8 while booting up), then select VGA support, set the resolution to 1280x1,024 2 60Hz, then reboot.

Change from a monitor to a flatscreen


You need hook up your old monitor back and set the PC video resolution to 1024 × 768 @ 60Hz which is the native/max resolution of the E15T4, remove the old Dell monitor and connect your E15T4.
You are getting out of range because your PC video resolution is too high for the E15T4 to display.

Montior says input not supported


The PC video resolution setting is too high for this monitor to display. The native resolution for this Dell E172 is 1280x1024260Hz, that is what you need to set your PC Video to. Boot up you PC in safe mode (hit F8 during boot up) and select bootup in VGA, set the resolution to 1280x1024, then reboot.
