Question about Dell E172FP 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor

1 Answer

The topic i click on doesn't open up on the monitor, it goes across the top of the screen in a long bar. The more links I open, they just layer up on top of each other across the top of the screen in the long bar, like the address bar. I can open them if I click on the little square on the right top that normally is used to enlarge things.

Do this. With one of the windows open instead of using the square box to enlarge the window, use the mouse cursor to drag the corner of the window out to the size you want. Then close the window by hold down the Control key while clinking on the X next to the square box. The next time you open this type of window it should be the size you want.

Tip

How to resize your desktop background.


If your desktop is smaller than the dimensions of your monitor then follow the following steps to get a full screen:

Setting the resolution:

1) Right click on an open spot on your desktop and select Properties at the bottom of the popup menu.

2) This will then open up the Display Properties window as shown below.
slasher_x_36.jpg

3) Click on the Settings tab (it's to the top right of the Display Properties window as shown in the image below.
slasher_x_37.jpg

4) At the bottom left of the settings tab there is a Screen resolution heading with a slider bar beneath it.
5) Slide this bar to the left or right until you find the resolution you like.
6) The click Apply when you have found the right resolution.

Sliding the bar to the left = lower resolution, larger desktop icons and less quality.
Sliding the bar to the right = higher resolution, smaller desktop icons and better quality.
NB: If you are using a CRT (older screen) the max resolution will be around 1280x1024. Newer LCD screen (flat and thin monitors) can go way up to 1920x1080 and beyond if HD is supported.

NOTE: If when doing the screen resolution changes your screen goes blank after you click Apply then immediately hold down the Enter key to restore it back to your previous settings

If this doesn't work then it just maybe the case that you need to set the auto screen fit function on the monitor itself using the buttons provided on the monitor.

This tip is useful when you plug in a monitor and the screen displays the No Signal or Signal out of Range massages. Simply change the resolution to something the monitor can handle and there you go.

Remove bookmarks


The bookmarks bar contains all your bookmarks and bookmark folders created in Google Chrome. You can dock the bar directly underneath the address bar at the top of the browser window for easy access to your favorite sites.

  1. Click the Chrome menu snp_9721c573e41777fba43e1498ad084e3b160c_2696434_en_v2 on the browser toolbar.
  2. Select Bookmarks.
  3. Select Always show bookmarks bar.
You can also use the keyboard shortcuts Ctrl+Shift+B (Windows and Chrome OS) and Command-Shift-B (Mac) to toggle the bar on and off.

Hide or undock the bookmarks bar

Right-click (or control-click on a Mac) the bookmarks bar and deselect Always show bookmarks bar. When the bookmarks bar is undocked, you can always find it at the top of the New Tab page.

FTP Connection using Windows 7 64 bit


Individual applications that transfer files using FTP may have their own methods for monitoring transfer speed. But for a single method that works across all applications, consider an external bandwidth monitor. Windows no longer tracks bandwidth usage, but several free third-party tools display your upload and download speed. Close other Internet programs besides your FTP transfer tool, and check the bandwidth monitor to determine your transfer rate.

Net Speed Monitor
If your computer uses the 32-bit version of Windows 7, download Net Speed Monitor 2.5.4.0 for Windows. If your computer instead uses the 64-bit Windows 7 version, download Net Speed Monitor 2.5.4.0 for Windows (msi, x64). (See Link Below.) http://www.floriangilles.com/software/netspeedmonitor/download/ Run the installation program. The license agreement will open. Accept the agreement. Click "Next." Further options will open. Click "Next." Click "Install." A dialog box will ask whether you want your task bar to display the "NetSpeedMonitor toolbar." Click "Yes." Another dialog box will open. Click "Save." Run your FTP transfer. Check the transfer rate from the task bar. Bandwidth Meter b> Download the Bandwidth Meter installation program. (See Link Below.) http://www.bandwidth-meter.net/freedown.htm Run the program. Click "Next" through the options. Choose "Install" when the final step prompts you to. Run your FTP transfer. Check the transfer rate from the task bar. Hope this helps.

Desktop display smaller than screen


1) Right click on your desktop.
2) Select Properties at the bottom of the popup menu. This will open the Display Properties window.
3) Click on the Settings tab (it's to the top right)
4) At the bottom left there is a Screen resolution heading with a slider bar beneath it.
5) Slide this bar to the left and right until you find the resolution you like.

Sliding the bar to the left = lower resolution, larger desktop icons and less quality.
Sliding the bar to the right = higher resolution, smaller desktop icons and better quality.

If your screen goes blank after you click Apply then immediately hold down the Enter key.

If this doesn't work then it just maybe the case that you need to set the auto screen fit function on the monitor itself using the buttons provided on the monitor.

Monitor


Do you have friend that has a laptop? If yes, you can have your monitor hooked up to external VGA connector. Your problem may or may not disapear. If it does it is likely that the graphic chip is to blame. You may find a inexpensive graphic card (plenty available) that will work.
