Having problems with your Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop ?

On my Dell, I reinstalled the OS, and now only 640x480

\015 When I try to change the resolution in the control panel, the only monitor that hsows up is called "default monitor" I have all the CDs and drivers, but don't know what to do next!\015

Answers :

Ok your default monitor is the screen that your using. The reason why it says that is because people can add more than one screen to their computer I don't do it personally but some people think that having two monitors is easier than having one. If you have any other questions please let me know!
