Display Resolution on Dell Dimension 2300

I restored the system from scratch using only Dell resource CDs. Everything works, except I cannot get the resolution over 640x480. It used to go to much higher originally. Tried downloading drivers etc. No luck. Any suggestions?

Thats really low. are you sure you don't mean under. my computer doesn't go under 800x600. Max resolutin is 1280. Are you sure you're downloading the right monitor driver, because that hapened to me before, but it was because i had the wrong driver.Nothing is wrong with the monitor!!!!

Please Rate!!!

    After some reaserch i found out that maybe the video card in the computer is working properly because you restored will dell only discs. When you got the driver, did you just download the monitor driver? If thats the case, the monitor doesn't have to do anything with the resolution. It is the video card that will need a new driver/updated driver.

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.

I need to do a system restore on my Dell Dimension DE051. I do not have any of the discs and looking for HELP!!!!!


Hello pamnwillie,
To perform a "System Restore.
" Follow these instructions carefully, and you will have no problem at all.
The first thing you want to do is click on the "Start Button,paul7of9_50.jpg" from the Desktop.
Next, click on "All Programs," scroll to find "Accessories," next select the "System Tools.
" You will see in the next window that open, "System Restore!

paul7of9_51.jpg

"Now this is very important!
Once you click on the System Restore "shortcut" it will start to look for the last known time of a change in your computer.
The System restore can take as long as a 1/2 an hour to run, so be patient
"Do not try to do any type of work, don't even touch the keyboard for any reason,
just let it run!"
Once the System Restore finds the correct "Date and Time"of the event;
choose the Date closest to the time of the occurrence.

.paul7of9_53.jpg

Now once again, there will be a message telling you not to do anything with the computer,
and please don't.
The System Restore will "run" for a while, so once again be patient.

paul7of9_52.jpg

The computer will then "Shutdown and Restart."
Lo-gin if you have to; but!
Do not touch the Keyboard once the Desktop window open, because System Restore is still running.
Wait! Until there is a message letting you know the Restore of your System was successful! Take your time.
"I hope all goes well, please let me know if you need further assistant.
Best Regards.
Thanks for using Fix'Ya."

I just want to "Erase" everything and start over


You should have received recovery cds when yoou bought your desktop. One is for the XP installation and the second one is for the applications and drivers.
Just put the installation cd in and restart the desktop. You may have to hit a key when you see the message: boot from cd" on the screen.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response.

Thanks, Joe

I just installed Windows 7 on my Dell Dimension 3000. Everything is OK except I can't changed the resolution on my 1720FP monitor!


try to download the latest version of your video card driver installation. it is due to the incompatibility between the OS and your driver version of your video card.

Cleaning hard drive


If you want to just get rid of virus/malware and other nasties, then you dont need to , but its always best to regularly back important stuff up.
Follow this guide to clean your Operating system
http://www.fixya.com/support/r5272277-secure_clean_computers

If however you need to re-install windows with a normal windows disc, everything will be lost and you will need the drivers for your motherboard and other equipment.
If you are doing a factory restore/recovery then you will loose everything, but all your drivers and programs that where on your computer when new will be there.

Feel free to ask if anything is not clear, or you need more information

Do i need a recovery **** to restore a Dell Dimension 2300? Or is there a way to do it when the computer is starting up. (Tapping F11 for example?)


Dell didn't create a recovery partition on your computer back than, if that's what you're asking. My 2300 came with a Dell recovery cd. You might be able to get one from Dell.
Or you can create a slipstreamed sp3 installation cd if you need to reinstall the OS and you have the Windows discs. You can get the original driver files from the Dell website.
But why are you trying to restore it? Have you got some malware on the system, or what?
By pressing F8 at startup, you get the advanced startup options screen, which allows you to boot into last known good configuration.
If that doesn't work, you could try starting in safe mode, and then use the system restore command from Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore to restore the system back to a previous date when it was working.
Give us a few more details about your situation and we'll be happy to help you sort it out...

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

Researching before buying


You can absolutely handle any screen you want. Just make sure if its an older computer to find a VGA connection on the new monitor and that will work out perfectly fine :).
