Having problems with your Dell OptiPlex GX260T PC Desktop ?

Dell OptiPlex GX260 video drivers don't work with Windows 7

\015 As of right now, I can only use a max of 1280x1024 on my comp (which is far less than satisfactory when I've got a 22" widescreen.\015\012\015\012Any ideas/tips?\015\012\015\012Thanks in advanced\015

Answers :

In your original question you say your max is 1280x1024 and in your second you say it is 1680x1050. The video card drivers are what determine your maximum resolution, not your operating system. If Dell has no drivers that support higher resolutions you'll have to change the video card.
So there you have it. Windows 7 is not yet supported by your video card.
Prolly will be soon.
I would bet that you can get the desired resolution if you were using XP.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1501 and its a little over a year old. It started acting funny about a month ago. It will work fine for about 5 minutes then it goes to a screen with different colored bars and i have to restart it again. I bought a new battery thinking that was the problem but that hasnt solved anything. HELP

My Dell Dimension 4600 is now showing the nv4_disp blue screen error saying the driver is in an infinite loop. It began with an intermittent black screen, then decay of the video. Now if I start it in ''regular'' mode it goes right to the blue screen. When I start it in SAFE mode sometimes the keyboard works and sometimes not. The CD and DVD drives don't work, but the mouse is fine. Before I try to uninstall/reinstall/update the video driver, could it just be the keyboard that is causing the pro
