Having problems with your Dell UltraSharp 1704FPT 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor ?

LOads generic driver

\015 I have a Dell Dimension 8400 with a 1704FPTt monitor. A year ago I lost my hard drive (? don't know why) but was able to load the Dell video driver onto the replacement drive, and everything worked well, but then, last April, my second drive failed (?????) and now I cannot even TRY to load the video driver. When I go to the Display properties/Settings/Advanced/Monitor/ the Monitor Properties is grayed out so there's no way I know of to load the Dell driver.My monitor "snaps" when I scroll up and down, and I cannot use my favorite "Rotate" function. Any ideas?\015

Its not the monitor that needs the driver, its the video installed on your computer, can you tell me the video card installed? you might need to use the resouce cd that came along with your computer and then look under video driver and the one that has a check mark is the one thats for your computer, but if you have an add in card, you should get a separate cd for it and thats the one that you can use. the video options is grayed out because the video driver wasnt installed properly. if you already know whats the video card on your computer, you can install the driver from here. http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=&SystemID=DIM_PNT_P4_8400
\015\012under video there are 12 options, just look for the name of your video card and install it. thaT SHOULD WORK ALREADY.
