I have a 19" Dell CRT Monitor, model number D1126H.
I cannot appear to find the correct drivers for this Monitor no matter how hard I search.
I bought it off Ebay for £10 and it didn't come with any manuals. Windows XP Pro just detected a default monitor that doesn't have many settings on it.
I checked the Dell downloads section on their web site, the forum and emailed their customer support all to no avail.
Does the latest XP driver for this monitor exist?
All I want is something that will allow me to set the proper refresh rates, and allow me to use the 1600x1200 display that this monitor is capable of. My previous Shinho AV2 monitor (15" very poor) even had it's own utility to configure things such as brightness, contrast and other tweaky bits that I cannot remember. Does Dell have a utility similar to this that sits in the Control Panel?
Sorry to blab on, any help is very much appreciated.
Monitors don't really need *drivers* - which in any case are not drivers in the true sense of the word.
WinXP should be able to display on this monitor with the settings you wish, without any aditional software. However, if the monitor is not detected as Plug and Play, you may have to fool windows into giving you a list of resolutions and refresh rates, by identifying the monitor as another make/model.
Look in the display properties under monitor, and make sure the box *Hide modes that this monitor cannot display* is UNticked.
Also can you tell us what monitor Windows has identified it as (if any), and what restrictions are currently set for your monitor display modes.
Refresh rate won't go above 70hz and max display resolution is 1024x768 when it is capable of 1600x1200 apparently. Dont know what the max refresh rate it can handle is. As you can imagine on a 19" monitor 1024x768 means the icons are extremely large.
Thanks to all the responses, in the end I downloaded a generic Dell monitor driver which seems to of done the job. 90Hz max res and 1600x1200 max res. It also shows as a "Dell D1126H Monitor on Nvidia GeForce 5500" now.
Thanks to all who replied.
