I changes the operating system on the Dell from XP Pro to Win 7 Pro. Ever since I did this, I've not been able to get the correct monitor resolution. I know that my computer has a generic Intel Graphics on the mother board and I'd like to know if there is anything that I can do to get better res. As I said, I didn't have this problem when I was using XP. Thanks for any help. Terry
I did the very same thing to my old computer, it was a 3000, but the parts are similar. You should only do this keeping in mind that a new computer that will be overall much faster will only cost a little bit more (if you build it yourself, which is the best way). I these same upgrades for fun, all in all about $80-$100. You'll be able to use windows 7, watch youtube, play basic games and surf the internet.
You really need a PCI slot Aero supported graphics card, note that is PCI and not PCIe. Your motherboard only has 1 PCI slot, make sure it is open.
