20 Most Recent Dell P780 17" CRT Monitor Questions & Answers

I am assuming you are talking about your monitor. What this message means is that your monitor can't handle the resolution your video card is set to. Re-start your computer and as soon as the first screen goes by (you know the one with all numbers and stuff) start hitting the F8 key. This will start the computer in safe mode which uses a very low resolution (usually 640 x 480). Once you see the display set the resolution to 800x600 which any display can handle. Re-boot and log in again and change the resolution to something higher. Test different settings. If you set one that is too high and you can't see the screen again don't touch anything as the screen will revert back to the previous setting if you do not confirm.

Hope this helps. If it does don't forget to give me a thumbs up.

You computer monitor is not receiving a signal from your computer system. Be sure to check that all connections are indeed making good contact.

It probabily happens after you change the settings of display in control panel (windows), if so restart the machine and press function key <F8> after memory test and you shoud get to the startup menu, choose VGA mode and undo the changes in display that you have made.

Best Regards

That sounds like a monitor issue, not a video card. Gradual fading means components within the monitor are wearing out. However, I strongly advice against attempting repairs. CRT monitors hold a strong electrical charge. People have been injured and even killed by attempting to work on them without proper tools and training. A 17" CRT monitor is too cheap to be worth the risk (you can often get them used... I got mine for $20 at Goodwill).

Sorry to say but it sounds like your deflection is on it's way out.
The best option would be to get a cheap used LCD now while you have the chance since repair of your current CRT will cost as much if not more.

Greetings to you! This error is due the battery. The battery didn't get sufficient power supply. If you are using the duplicate battery I suggest you to purchase a genuine battery from the authorized reseller. before that try the following steps as a first aid and it may help you. follow each step
  • First of all, remove the battery on your Dell laptop.
  • Turn over the Dell laptop.
  • Then pull out to remove the battery
  • Wait a few minutes at least 50- 60 seconds.
  • Next, start your Dell Laptop.
if this steps didn't work out then it is better it to the authorized service provider and get your gadget replaced with the genuine battery thank you!

I haven't before this heard of such a thing. I am wondering how you have determined this figure and what exactly you mean - do you mean the 1TB drive is now considerably less than 1TB? Perhaps you mean the available space on the drive is reducing by 10Gb per day? If the latter it suggests your computer is downloading lots of stuff without your knowledge and if the former it suggests the hard drive is failing. I suggest you connect your hard drive to a different computer via a usb adaptor and run the check disc utility and examine the contents to discover whether there is content on it you didn't put there.

It alway zs helps to know the model number. Witht that information, you should be able to find the specifications at the Dell support site. It would simply tell you in a specs sheet. I guess you could download HWinfo, a handy freeware program and check informaiton about components there. There is of course the option to download the user manual.
