    I have an older Dell PC and have re-installed Windows XP on it three times.
    The OS seems to work fine each time but it gives me no way to adjust the
    resolution. I go into adjust screen resolution and it wont let me adjust
    anything, the slide bar, in advanced, and under settings. I can't change
    anything even trying to load the software for the monitor fails??? Any help?

    You need to go to Dell's web site and download the latest drivers for your video
    adapter.

    While you're there, you might want to download the latest drivers for the other
    hardware devices on your system.

    Good luck

  4. What happens when you install the most recent WinXP-specific video
    drivers, as provided by your video adapter's manufacturer's web site?

    I just downloaded the driver on my other pc and moved it to an external HD.
    I just clicked on the file ***.exe and it opened and the resolution changed
    allowing me he entire functionality of adjusting it.
