Hi, have just reinstalled windows xp and the screen resolution is fixed at its lowest setting. When i go in settings to change there are no other options in the drop down menu.

Any ideas how i can get screen back to somethin like normal

Do you have your graphics card drivers installed?

If not first find out what card you have then download the appropriate drivers.

XP, click here

Dell pcs usually come with a driver disc with the graphics card drivers on them, but always a good idea to install the latest.

Go to the Dell Support Site and enter the Service Tag # which you will find on the case the correct drivers for that computer will be listed download all the drivers and burn to a CD
