Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Screen Resolution settings

Our whole system crashed and we had to reload operating system. Everything fine except now I need increase the screen resolution to install my Verizon disk (says has to be minimum of 800 x 600), but stuck on 640 x 480 - curser won't move to increase. Troubleshooted on Dell but selections they told me to pick are "grayed out" - can't use. Anyone run in to this?

How to make my fonts smaller


Quick answer - not specifically to change font size, but to change whole screen size
The whole screen size can be magnified (zoom in) by simultaneously pressing CNTRL + ; the reverse operation (zoom out - what you want I think) is performed by CNTRL - (press cntl and + keys simultaneously)

Or change (increase) the resolution of the screen by right clicking a blank a blank area of the desktop and selecting 'screen resolution' in Windows 7 or in XP one the tabs similarly labeled, and increasing resolution if not at max already.

The problem might be that your system is trying to start with a high resolution that your screen can't support. All you have to do is to reduce the resolution of your screen, so follow these steps

- Reboot your computer.
- Press F8 right before Windows starts you will get a troubshooting menu.
- Select start on VGA mode.
- Once you are on the system.
- Go to your Control panel->Display->Settings->Screen Resolution.
- Decreese the screen resolution. Try 1024x768 or other resolutions, if the screen turn to black, press ESC to discard that resolution and then try an other one.

Good luck.

Black screen flashes up on screen


Turn off the auto setting on the resolution. Either keep the dvd set to 480i or 1080p or whatever is the highest resolution your tv supports.

Print on screen too small


It depends a lot on your operating system.

In brief, decrease the resolution on your monitor (go from 1024x768 to 800x600 for example) which will make everything bigger (this is under control panel -> display options in XP) or go to Accessibility options (or ease of use options in Vista) to set font sizes larger (just make text bigger, not everything else).

Hope it helps.

If you need further help, please tell us what your operating system is...

Picture off center


This is usually because the resolution is set too low. Right click on the background and go to Properies. Then in the Display Properties Window go to Settings. Increase the resolution.

If you cannot increase the resolution then you need to install/reinstall your video card driver. This should have come with your PC or new graphics card.
