    I just Reinstalled Windows Xp on my desktop and I can't raise the screen resolution any higher than 640 by 480 pixels and 4 bits

    I finally got running on XP SP3 and still no prevail out of the many problems i'm experiencing right now I would like to view what I'm seeing correctly

    I've tried calling Dell( since I'm not the original owner of the Pc they won't do squat) And I've tried googling and plus the Drivers on the CD aren't working correctly

    i'm taking all suggestions

    you need tofind out what your graphics card is and obtain the proper drivers for it. That should resolve the resolution issue

    The easiest way would be to right-click on your desktop, select "properties", and then click the "settings" tab. It should be listed in there.

    More advanced information can be found in the Control Panel, in the "System" icon.
