Hi Peoples,
I just received my new Dell UltraSharp u2412m monitor!
Now I try to connect my Dell XPS15 laptop (via its mini displayport connection) to my new monitor via a mini displayport to displayport cable.Sadly it doesnt seem to connect and the monitor instantly goes into Power Save Mode...
What am I doing wrong here? Is this possible/compatible in the first place?
Thanks very much in advance!
Moris
Ps. the monitor instantly works with an old laptop via vga connection...Plug and play...

A:Problem connecting my XPS15 laptop to my u2412m monitor via displayport

Try using a different connection--hdmi would be best if the laptop has that. You can use a hdmi to dvi cable--same technology and those work. Those can be bought for less than $10.

Good morning,I have a DELL XPS 15 laptop for photography, with a great Ultrasharp U2713H (not HM).I have to use a mini-DP to DP converter cable in order to connect them together, and it worked very good until I upgraded my OS from Windows 8.1 to 10 last year.Since this upgrade, the communication between my computer and the monitor is just completely not working. The monitor says "entrer en economiser puissance" (I'm french). The HDMI connection works just fine, but is unable to give me the full WQHD resolution.I tried 2 differents mini-DP to DP cables with the same results. My laptop doesn't even show the external monitor on the display settings window, and the "fn" quick launch for screen sharing options doesn't solved the problem at all.I have updated the Intel HD4000 driver, and the Nvidia GT630M driver, but the problem is still here.At the begining I thought this problem will probably be solved quickly by a DELL driver release, but nothing happened, and I'm stuck for almost one year now, trying to solve this apparently "tiny problem".... And apparently I am not the only DELL user experiencing this issue, almost all the people with the same problem have downgraded to 8.1 or 7 and the problem was solved, but I don't want to go back to 8.1  because I really don't like this windows version...

HDMI works, DVI to a Apple DVI<-> HDMI works to Dell 5510, HDMI into WD15 docking station works. HDMI to Mac mini works (not DP to Thunderbolt). 
Any idea how to get DP working from Monitor to Dell 5510? Maybe a bad cable? 5510 should be able to drive full resolution on monitor through the DP.

But when I fixed it on her PC (no DVI only VGA) it flickers when showing text. (Some horizontal and vertical distortions). This does not happen when she runs full screen games.

I've set the resolution and refresh rate to the optimum settings (1280x1024 60hz) but it doesn't seem to solve it.

Hi.
I have an XPS15 that has been "upgraded" to Windows 10 but I am constantly getting this error. I have attempted to find updated drivers, and I found one from Sept. 2015, but I'm still getting the same problem. It is incredibly frustrating. Help. 

A:XPS15 error: "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered"

Hi BUTTERNUTS,
What is the exact system model? When did the issue start? Was the issue seen when the system was on Win 8 or only after you upgraded to Win 10?
If the system was working fine earlier while on Win 10, then perform a system restore to restore the system to a point where it was working fine - http://bit.ly/1JEw2ov
For XPS 9530:
Update the BIOS - http://dell.to/1Qpam2M and reinstall the Intel video driver from the same site. If the issue persists, then uninstall the existing video driver and install the driver from Intel site - http://intel.ly/1h4oaGT
For XPS 9550:
Update the BIOS - http://dell.to/1XOjEeg and reinstall the Intel video driver from the same site. If the issue persists, then uninstall the existing video driver and install the driver from Intel site - http://intel.ly/1qEcrCW
If the issue is not resolved, then create a new local admin account and check - http://bit.ly/1JoFhcw
If the issue is seen only on Win 10 and was working fine on Win 8.1, then downgrade to Win8.1 and check - http://bit.ly/1RMaCdK
You could later perform a clean install of Win10 and check - http://bit.ly/1VxGDgb

I never had this problem with my old router and windows xp, this is happening since i got vista.

I cant see any pre-installed software from DELL that could be causing the problem.

My dell 1905fp finally crashed after a lot of years. I'm not a gamer, but I was very happy with that monitor.

Of course they no longer make it, and I understand refurbished monitors of this type are not necessarily a good option.

I can't seem to find reviews or comparisons which point the way to other similar monitors. I'm retired and just can't afford the $600 and way up price of what I've seen so far.

I just need a basic monitor with VGA and DVI, but would like the screen performance to be decent, incl for watching movies etc.

Any recommendations, and where to get a reasonable price? Again, don't want a wide screen.

Thanks much!
 

A:Reasonably priced 19" or 20" monitor, not wide-screen?

Nothing wrong with buying refurbs. They may have a few blemishes in the frame but nothing serious to keep them from functioning. I've bought a few myself and have had no issues with them. Although the monitors I bought were 20" widescreens that averaged $120 or less. For what you need/want, I wouldn't spend more than $150.

I know you said no widescreen, but movies do view better on widescreen.

Hello. I'm in the process of searching for a new PC notebook (I'm in the market for a 17 to 18 inch display), and I've come across a couple laptops that mention having an "extra-wide" display or a "130-degree ultra-wide viewing angle" and things to that effect. I wanted to ask some questions about this:

1.) Does this extra-wide display entail a better picture or resolution or something like that, or is it just wider?

2.) Will an extra-wide display like this make widescreen bars (the black bars at the top and bottom of the screen when watching a movie) more likely? Will the wider display cause these bars to be bigger or appear more often on movies (or games or anything else) where they wouldn't have on a regular width display?

My computer will have a 17-18 inch display, it will be 1080p, and will be Blu-ray enabled. I'm very concerned with getting the best picture possible, so I'd like to know if the extra-wide display will contribute to that, but I'm also heavily annoyed by widescreen bars at the top and bottom of my movies and whatnot, so if the primary effect of the extra-wide display is simply a wider screen that will have more bars more often, then I'd like to know that.

Any help here is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
 

A:Need help with "extra-wide" PC notebook displays

It really depends as much on the graphics card as the screen itself, and there is no reliable way to know. You have to see it setup and play with the display settings.
However, If you select a true high end laptop should be fine. Others will make the images look stretched, but user quickly get used to it. One would think that 1080p would be a guarantee of good screen performance, but it is not.
If you are getting a computer that is in the upper third of its price and model range, you usually get the good screen combination in my experience... HP, Dell, Sony, and Lenovo anyway. You will have to avoid budget laptops.

I read somewhere that there is a way to change the video card so I can set the monitor to a wider setting than what the computer is currently allowing me to do (1280 x 1024 is as wide as I can go, and this monitor recommends 1920 x 1080) Can I change the video card information, and if yes, how would I do that please? I have a 20GB hard drive on the computer (the original 40GB hd died two years ago) and just installed a 160GB hd (7200) after the computer stopped recognizing the 60GB hd that was where I kept everything...thank God I had backed it all up within the past two weeks on a portable hd!)

I am in the process of upgrading my household desktop from a Dell Dimension 4450 (Pentium 4) running Windows XP Home (SP3) to a Dell XPS 8700 (Intel 4Core i7-4770) under Windows 8 (x64).
 
During the course of using Revo Uninstaller to install / reinstall additional software I had an "oops" moment, and accidently removed an application one line below the intended target.
 
The software removed was "softOSD.exe". Research  on the web indicates that it is supplied to Dell by a Taiwanese company EnTech, and that its function is to help manage the monitor -- in my case a Dell U2412M. This research also revealed that in the past softOSD has been suspected of causing problems with displays, and there are several articles out there offering ways of removing it (or viruses that have "borrowed" the name).
 
My problem is slightly different -- I have not been able to find any site from where I could download a replacement version, assuming I that should want to. Can anyone offer any insight as to whether I should be worried about the lack of this item (no obvious effects so far) and try to replace it? If replacement is the way to go, where can I find a download site?

I have connected an HDMI cable to the new Dell laptop which runs windows 10
I have inserted an DVI to HDMI adapter into the monitor and plugged in the HDMI cable.
(I want to extend my workspace on my laptop onto the monitor).
I've tested the set up of the cable and adapter using another laptop running Windows 7 and it all works fine.
However, my new Dell laptop does not seem to recognize the Dell monitor.
Please can you advise solution/s? 
Thanks

I currently have a standard 4:3 17" LCD monitor. I want to upgrade to 19" but I am unsure whether or not to get a widescreen monitor or a standard square one. I know it probably depends on what it is going to be used for, but I do a lot of different things, from games, to browsing the web, to website making, to video editing.

Should I take the safe bet of the 4:3 monitor ? Or is there a big advantage to 16:9 ? Please note I wont be doing much DVD viewing on it, only to check back videos I have edited (not to sit and watch for hours).

Any advice appreciated, thanks !
 

A:19" wide or 19" 4:3 ?

Several video game programs are receiving critical system errors and "encountered a serious problem"
and are failing to run.

Here is the file that is included as going "with the report" to Microsoft:
C:\DOCUME~1\Mark\LOCALS~1\Temp\2dba_appcompat.txt

I downloaded a crack for an old video game and I think that malware went with it, so here is my HiJack Log. Thank you in advance!

After connected my dell XPS 13 with Dell 34" ultra monitor via Kensington SD4000 universal docking station. Have video but no sound coming out from my ultra wide monitor. The only sound that I heard was from the XPS laptop. My Laptop's OS is window 10 and I tried to use Chrome and explorer Edge, none of the search engine is able to solve the problem. Moreover, I checked my all connective cables to/from the docking station and it seems fine to me. Please help!!!!!!!!!!!!

So the story goes that I have a dell ultrasharp U2414h monitor which been working great since I bought it, and recently I moved to a brighter apartment and I realized there is a stuck pixel on the monitor, and I realized the monitor comes with "Premium Panel Guarantee" as stated on the website throughout all the ultrasharp series, So i called up technical support, spoke with TWO basic support agents and ONE senior service technician, all three of them just keep asking for the service tag or service code which I don't have at all on the monitor, I provided them with the S/N on the back of monitor and their answers were "according to industry standard you need to have minimum 5 or more dead pixels in order to qualify for an exchange" . So since when did ultrasharp premium panel guarantee downgrades and inline with the industry standard? then I went ahead and ask for a supervisor and I got a senior service tech which says my monitor only has one year  warranty, the premium panel guarantee and advanced exchange service (stated on dell website) are EXTRA features that you need to purchase. So according to the website I read to the tech as follow:

Premium Panel Guarantee. The Dell Premium Panel Guarantee allows a free panel replacement during the Limited Hardware Warranty period even if only one bright pixel is found.
Advanced Exchange Service. Your Dell monitor comes with a 3-year Advanced Exchange  Service2 so that,... Read more

A:complaint about dell ultrasharp monitors

If you have a Service Request (SR) number for your latest contact with Tech Support about this specific problem, you can try Dell's Unresolved Issues.
If you don't have an SR number for this issue, call Tech Support and ask them for it. And if they don't have one for your monitor issue, start a new service request and be sure to ask for an SR number, if they don't satisfy you. Then use Unresolved Issues.

This monitor is run by my Dell XPS 600 PC, 955ee processor and dual Geforce 7800 GTX cards. While the colors are crisp and sharp the picture is somewhat distortated. Circles are egged shaped and the vertical pictures are fairly compressed. This is at any resoultion. Is there some way to adjust that or is it a monitor problem?
Thanks for your input.

hey wassup guys just wondering, who has a dell 19" lcd ultrasharp 1905fp and running at 1280 x 1204 @ 75 refresh rate? Anyone?
Dell says the optimum is 60 for refresh rate, but says highest it can go is 75, so why not just use 75? why keep it at 60? can someone enlighten me on the subject? i'm kinda new to lcd's and all their goodness.

I'm not sure where to leave it at 75 or 60, i always though higher was better lol, what am i missing? anyways. let me know thanx.
 

A:dell 19 inch ultrasharp 1905fp help!

It is because there is no need for bigger refresh rates with LCD technology.

You seem to suffer from the Big Numbers syndrome.. In most things bigger (number) doesn't mean better.
