Check the procesor fan, if it come loose the temperature rises and the computer shot down to protect the procesor..or probably the procesor lost the heat sink compound.That is a compound that comes over the back part of the procesor and help the procesor to transfer the heat to the heat sink of the procesor,The heat sink is that metallic piece that you see under the fan of the procesor..probably you need to put a cap of that heat sink compound..you can get it in any electronic shop that sales repair parts for technicians.

This is not a GPO issue. The problem is that all Windows will attempt to set the new resolution and a fail-safe is that if you do not click the Keep Changes button after thirty seconds it switches back to the old settings. This ensures that if you set the resolution to a range the monitor or display adapter can't handle that you don't get 'stuck' with a blank screen.
Check that the display adapter in the Dell 780 can handle a resolution of 1280x1024 and that the monitor can also handle this resolution.

I have a Dimension 8250....when I visit any site that streams video, the video is extremely choppy with frequent freezes. I only have 1 GB of RAM installed; is that my problem?


Your problem is that your desktop is at least 7-8 years old. No amount of upgrades to your computer can bring it up to handle streaming videos or other applications of today's technologies.Even if you tried to upgrade your computer it cost you close to $300 to 500. You can go to Walmart and a purchase monitor, and computer for around $500. The life expectancy of a computer is 3-5 years. Not saying that it will break down, it becomes outdated.

Dell xps 200 shuts down without warning. The powe...


Opitions:
1.) Your system may have an over heating problem
Make sure all your fans are running and not making excessive noise.

2.)You may be a victim of spyware/maleware infections. You will need to have your system cleaned. This should help resolve your issue.

I would recommend trying CCleaner first to see if this helps you. Please keep in mind this will not rid your system of everything just keep you a float and offer you a fighting chance.

Please keep me posted and updated on your issue. I am here for you and will see your issues out till resolved.

Have a great and wonderful day :)

Thank You

To joecoolvette reguarding 2005 compaq presario SR1000 and Dell LCD TFT monitor. The dell monitor was part of my mothers comp and I wasnt given a CD with it. Im sure she dont have it now. As far as the...


jason,
When a device is installed, Windows 'Breaks it's neck', to find a compatible driver, (Or drivers)

If THE driver is not present, then Windows will match up one of it's thousands, of generic drivers it has on hand.

Then if THE driver is installed, there is a driver conflict.

{Crude illustration}
Windows: 'Which drivers do I use? These or THESE?'

Let's try this;

{Based on Windows XP operating system}
1) Left-click on,
Start>
Control Panel>
Add/Remove Programs

When Add/Programs populates REMOVE the graphics cards software.
ALL of it. Anything you see associated with that graphics card.

Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
(If you are asked in Add/Remove Programs, if you wish to restart your computer - NO)

Shut your computer down normally.
(Start>Turn Off Computer>Shut Down)

Unplug your computer from power. Open the computer case, TOUCH the metal frame to relieve your body of Static electricity.
(Static will fry out your computer hardware components)

Remove the graphics card.

Press the Power On button in, and hold it in for a count of Five seconds. (And I mean Five. Count - 1001..1002..1003..1004..1005)

Let go of the Power On button.
Do this same procedure Two more times. (Imperative!)

What you are doing is clearing CMOS Error Codes, and resetting your BIOS Setup back to the factory default settings.

Now plug your monitor into the VGA port on the motherboard.
Plug your computer back into power.
WAIT 1 minute.
Turn your computer on.

When Windows has loaded all the way, put the CD disk for your graphics card in your optical drive tray. Load the software.

When you are finished, close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Shut your computer down normally.

Unplug your computer from power. TOUCH the metal frame. Install your graphics card.
Plug your monitor into the graphics card.
Close your computer case.

Plug your computer into power. WAIT 1 minute.
Turn your computer on.

If the resolution isn't correct:

Right-click anywhere on an empty spot of your desktop screen.
In the drop down menu, Left-click on Properties.
Now left-click on the Settings tab, all the way to the right.

Look down at where it states - Screen resolution, in blue.
(Halfway down the Display Properties window)

Is the pixel resolution what it should be?
If not, Left-click on the slider.

Hold your left mouse button down, and slide the slider, to where the resolution settings are correct for your Dell LCD monitor.
(To the left is Less. To the right is More)

Now go down to the right, and click on Apply.
Then go over to the left, and click on OK.

Don't know what the native resolution, for that Dell LCD Thin Film Transistor monitor should be?

Look it up on the internet using the Model Number, or give me the Model Number, and I'll look it up for you.
