hi, did you format your hard drive and then reinstall? If so have you reinstalled your video card drivers??? If you have not then that may be why you cant change the display setings. Your using the on board graphics and not your card. Hope this helps.

"when it boots up says its loading file DRMK version 8.00 but nothing happens"

This is the Dell Real Mode Kernel driver - Dells own substitute for the MSDOS facility hidden inside XP. This link

refers to your problem - unfortunately I couldn't find the actual fix for it.

This link, and other forums refer to issues with the Dell Utility partition, after an update to it. which can result in your problem.
