Having problems with your Dell Latitude C510 Notebook ?

Multiple monitor feature

\015 I have a dell latitude c510. each time i start computer it defaults to an incorrect screen resolution. I am able to go into settings and change the resolution to 1024x768 and it corrects but each time i restart I need to repeat. I believe this is due to having 2 monitors installed. I do not use any other monitor but do not know which one to remove correctly. When I go to the device manager it shows 4 default monitors. Any suggestions?\015

Answers :

Boot to SAFE mode, go to device manager, remove all Monitors, reboot and let it re-detect. That should resolve you resolution issue.

Acer AL1714 I believe the inverter is dead on my Acer monitor. When I hold a flashlight up to the screen I can see the desktop. If I unplug and plug the monitor the lights flash on for a split second.

Monitor I have had this problem occur once before to a monitor and I was able to solve it. This time it is a different monitor and my solution is not working. My monitor is now operating sideways (with the Windows start button in the upper left hand corner and all of my icons at the top going from right to left). I tried to use the front panel buttons to flip it back but all it did is make the situation worse. Is there a way in Windows to get it back? Thanks

Monitor Problems We have a Dell PC that supports 2 monitors. Since July of last year, we've been successfully running one 20" LCD via a DVI cable and one CRT monitor using its integrated cable. Out of the blue, the LCD went dark. The green light turned to amber and nothing. I ended up removing the DVI cable from the LCD and using a regular monitor cable instead and it worked fine.

There are three servers (2 G5s and 1 G4) these servers share a single monitor but i don't use any kvm switch.. I manually switch the connection of the monitor to access the three servers. i use G4 most of the time so i don't connect the monitor much to the two G5s.. the problem is, whenever i leave the 2 G5s without a monitor for a long time, i can't get any video output whenever i connect a monitor to them.. why was that?
