Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Monitor Resolution I have a Dell Dimension 3000. I have been running it on Windows XP so far. Recently I installed Windows RC. Since the day I installed Windows RC, my screen resolution has changed. I am not getting any option to increase screen resolution. Is it because I need an updated VGA driver or what? Could anybody suggest a remedy or I would revert back to Windows XP Thanks in advance!!

I've got a Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 that I'm trying to connect to my very old TV (16 years). I'm going through the VCR. I thought I could connect the laptop's VGA to the RGB port on the VCR, tune to the right channel, adjust the display on the laptop & poof --- big screen monitor. Well, no such luck. Any help would be appreciated. Oh, it go directly to the TV, I would need to convert the PC's VGA to coaxial. I thought it would be easier going through the VCR's RGB.
