Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

I have a 2002 Dell optiplex computer with windows xp. I want to get a samsung 19" wide screen monitor. Someone told me that it probably would not plug and go as old computers need software and adjustment to get a wide screen to work. He said to get a rectangular picture. Is this true, as i have seen a samsung that I would really like to get?

Practically all monitors have the necessary drivers to accomadate what you are trying to achieve.Just plug in and go.If your present PC does not have the drivers in its database windows will download it from the web or you yourself can do so.

Dell optiplex


Yes it can, if otherwise all you will need to do is to reduce / high the screen resolution for better image and display.
by right clicking on your Desktop , scroll down to properties (if window xp), screen resolution (if window vista or window 7) and click on slider to increase or reduce the resolution . then you are done.

N:B: if the montior of the higher resolution would not display, make use of a normal one that will work to set it first and later return your new 24inch monitor. IT WILL DISPLAY BETTER.

Problem on Dell OptiPlex 780 Desktop


You are going to need to start your computer in safe mode and find the XP drivers that will work for your motherboard manually from the web (Assuming that there are any created for XP for that board)..

That blue screen you keep getting is because you don't have the correct driver loaded for something on the motherboard that it needs to boot correctly and your XP install couldn't find it on the web to install automatically.

Start your PC and press F8 several times until the boot menu comes up. Then select "Safe Mode with Networking".

Now start looking for your drivers here:

I use Microsoft XP and I use a 24" Samsung widescreen monitor. Is there any way I can get my programs to fill the screen without stretching and distorting. I have a friend who has a Dell widescreen...


Its probably your screen resolution, you probably want it set to something with a 16:9 or 16:10 ratio so 1280x768 or 1280x960 or if you are like me and like lots of real estate 1920x1200

I have Dell windows XP. The monitor's contrast 100 shows in middle of screen sporadically. I've been told it's not a virus. Do I need to replace it? It is from 2002.


Try pressing the menu button on the monitor to see if this will close it. Or maybe there is a return button on there with an arrow that looks like the arrow on the enter key on the keyboard.

Try unplugging the monitor and leaving it for 60 seconds then plugging it back in. If this doesnt' solve it then it possibly is a fault with the monitor

Monitor compatibility


It will be compatible with the system, just keep on thing in mind, whatever resolution you set your computer at you may have to keep the ratio aspect active so that way the screen looks properly displayed.
