Q: Dell Vostro 3750 with Dell U2515H monitor resolution problem


I've got DELL Vostro 3750, and I bought Dell U2515H monitor for second display.
I can set only maximum 1920×1050 resolution, instead of the optimal 2560×1600 of the monitor.
I'am connected them with hdmi cable.

Preferred Solution: Dell Vostro 3750 with Dell U2515H monitor resolution problem

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Dell Vostro 3750 with Dell U2515H monitor resolution problem

The U2515H HDMI in port can do up to 2560x1440 60Hz. But the U2515H does not dictate the resolution. That is done by the capabilities of the laptop GPU video card. The 2011 Vostro 3750 HDMI out must be limited to 1920.

I have a 3 monthold Vostro 3750, I7, 1GB nvidia graphics, works great, coolest running laptop I have ever seen.  When I start the computer the usb 3 ports work for several minutes then shuts itself off and even my mouse will not work on them. When I plug the same mouse into the usb 2 port they work fine but the 3.0 ports will not work until I reboot the computer. I have loaded the latest Renesas USB 2.1.25 driver and there still appears to be no solution to the problem.  The usb 3.0 issue seems to be a common problem, at least on Vostro machines. With 2 USB ports out of a total of 3 being non-functional, it is getting to be a nightmare using my USB peripherals, which i have managed to circumvent with 2 USB 2.0 hubs serially connected to each other.
I hope someone has the right solution to this USB 3.0 problem.

I'm struggling to attach the soundbar to the computer. There are two cables in the box. On the picture it shows the short cable attached to the soundbar that slots into the monitor. Is the extension cable supposed to attach to the short extension cable attached to the soundbar or is that supposed to go in a separate slot. On the diagram in the instructions it looks like both cables need to be plugged in.
This might seem like a stupid question but it isn't clear in the instructions.

Hi I recently found my laptop's cpu fan behaving abnormally.
In normal situation, the fan would run at lower rpm speed most of the time (even after opening several programs & web browser tabs) & the noise was negligible.
Lately, the fan consistently runs on full high rpm speed & the noise is very annoying. I have not installed any new programs & my computer activities (see above) remained unchanged but this fan just keep running at full noisy speed.
I have tried to remove the dust using those can air dusters and even tried SpeedFan software to try to control the fan speed but to no avail.
Can anyone teach me how to control the fan speed to run mostly at lower rpm?
Thank you.

Hi sotong,
I would suggest you to update the BIOS on the computer so that the hardware settings are reset and the fan may run on the normal RPM. Please enter your service tag # on the link below, then download the BIOS required onto the system and install it.

The very first driver installed on my Vostro 3750 worked fine but only 1920*1080 and my monitor is 1920 X 1200 capable ; with VGA no problem.
I tried to install (via automatic search) new HP monitor driver and graphic card driver (with automatic research for both). The result was HDMI connection did not display anything !
Then I tried to search by myself the drivers on nvidia site and the HDMI connection restarted but only with a 1024 X 768 definition....

I have a Dell Vostro 1000 running Windows XP. If I leave my laptop running and shut the laptop lid and leave it for a while, when I open it back up, the screen resolution has changed. Everything is very large and you can't see the whole screen at one time. But when I go to the display properties screen and check the screen resolution settings, the actual bar setting has not moved to a new setting. I have to move it to a new setting, let it go there then move it back to the original postion and reset it to get it back to my original resolution setting. The original setting is 1280 X 768. The only way I have been able to kind of work around this was to go to display properties, chose screen saver, then power scheme, then the advanced button, then in the box where you instuct it on what to do when you close the lid, tell it to go to standby. It then does not change the resolution when i close the lid but it also interupts the wireless connection so no emails are loaded while the lid is closed and it is in standby mode. I then have to wait evertime I open the lid for it to crank up my wireless connection and then wait for it to load any new emails that have come in since I closed the lid. Any ideas anyone.

I recently bought a new Dell U2515H Monitor which is capable of 2450x1440 resolution.
I connected it to my Dell Inspiron 14z 5423 laptop using HDMI (there's no DP on the laptop).
The 5423 comes with two display adapters: an integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000 and dedicated AMD Radeon HD 7570M, which supports 2450x1440 resolution.
However, Windows only allows me set the external monitor's display up to 2048x1152 resolution.
Does this mean it uses the integrated card for the display?
Is there any way to fix this?
(All my drivers are updated to the latest versions)

Hi, I can't seem to get anything higher than 1920x1080 in the list of available resolution options when I connect my Dell U2713HM monitor to my Dell Inspiron 15 laptop. I've run this monitor at 2560x1440 on another laptop over HDMI in the past but that was with Windows 8. The Intel HD Graphics 530 Control Panel doesn't offer any resolutions above 1920x1080 for the external monitor and adding custom resolutions results in the error "the custom resolution exceeds the maximum bandwidth capacity". I'm using the same high speed HDMI cable that worked at 2560x1440 with this monitor on my previous laptop. I'm fully up to date on all of the drivers for the laptop.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm not sure what else to try. Could this be a Windows 10 issue? Should I try the standard Intel HD Graphics 530 drivers from the Intel website?

I am having a problem with screen resolution with my Dell 2407 FWP monitor.
Iíve been on the phone multiple times between Dell and NVIDIA (my card manufacturer) without a satisfactory answer. I am using a Gateway 710 PC and XP Home and I even upgraded to a NVIDIA GE Force 7600 GS 512MB card thinking the card was the problem. The native resolution of the Dell 2407 is 1920x1200. This yields small icons, fonts and screens. I have tried all the resolutions available to me in the Settings panel of the Display Properties window and other than 1920x1200 or 1680x1050, all the other ones are not a 16:10 ratio and distort the image. Dell suggested using 1280x800 or 1440x900, but these choices are not available to me. Dell said they can see them on a test they ran, even though they are not supported. I donít really understand this, because I canít see
them on mine. The spec sheet says the monitor supports 1920x1200, 1600x1200, 1280x1024, 1152x864, 1024x768, 800x600.
Nevertheless, my question isÖdo you have any suggestions what I can do to see a reasonably sized image that is not distorted. I have played around with changing font sizes and changing the DPI which helps some with the size, but causes overlap of text in some screens and windows.

I could provide you more specific information if you desire, I didnít want to overload you with details now. I really like the monitor, I just canít understand why I canít get a decent sized image without distortion. Lots of folks have 24 ... Read more

Hi everybody,
my problem is this: in the past 2 weeks my windows 10 was updated from the 1703 version to the 1709 and the resolution of my pc became awful: images, texts, icons ... everything! ... were kind of "stretched" orizzontally, were big and unclear.
I had to restore my notebook but I just found out that maybe I can't avoid Windows Update to update automatically the OS.
So, I was wondering if does anyone know if maybe my notebook video driver is not suitable for the 1709 version? Does anyone know if Dell know about this problem and will release any update?
Thank you!!

Hello all, the Mermaid is back. I have a new comp, Acer Veritron S460 and Dell Monitor, E228WFP, and I'm unable to change Resolution settings, am stuck on 1280x1024. Display drivers updated, (but Acer drivers are notoriously hard to find, for Win XP Pro ) any and all help would be appreciated.

A:Solved: Acer Veritron /Dell Monitor Resolution Problem.

Here is Dell site for the Dell E228WFP 22" wide-screen LCD monitor.

The native resolution for that monitor is 1680 X 1050 and shouldn't be displaying at 1280 X 1024.

When you do a scan at the Windows Updates site, does it have an INF file available for that monitor? If it does, download and install it.


Here is the Acer site for the Acer Veriton S460 desktop.

According to the specs, it has an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3100 graphics controller.

The Intel driver available at the Acer site for Windows XP Pro is version and can be downloaded from here.

Select "Desktop" and then "Veriton" and then "S460" and then "Microsoft Windows XP Professional x32".

When you click the orange icon next to the Intel entry, the file will start downloading. Since it's in a ZIP file, save it in an empty folder that you create on your desktop.

When you extract inside that folder, a new folder will appear. Double-clicking the "Setup.exe" file will start the install process.

Dear forum
I have a 2 year old Dell Vostro 3750 laptop. It has a problem in the display. But it works perfectly fine on external display. The laptop screen flickers some time and I get a plain white screen. And it works fine sometime for few minutes. 
I tried with a new screen and tried to replace the LCD video ribbon cable that connects the LCD from the mother board. All this trials did not help. Still the same problem continues.
What could be the cause ? Could it be a problem in the motherboard ?
Please help

A:Vostro 3750 - Display problem

If it works fine on your external monitor then your motherboards is OK. You either have a problem with the laptop screen connection/connector or the screen itself. The ribbon cable can be a little tricky to replace. Make sure it's not upside down.

A:Does Dell vostro 1015 pp37l vga out cable support a 1920x1080 FHD monitor

If the monitor has a VGA input (D-sub) it will work.  That said, be reasonable with your expectations - you may get away with using the monitor for browsing the Internet or word processing/spreadsheet use, but don't expect to be doing any gaming or watching video at FHD on it -- while the monitor can handle those, the computer you have is far too underpowered for that.

Hi, I had a GPU fail in my Dell Vostro 1500 laptop. The card that failed was an NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS. The Vostro laptop actually can accept an NVIDIA 8600 GT card too. So I ordered the replacement part from Dell for the 8600 and they shipped me a refurbished unit.
The surgery to put in the new card took all night for hack like to do. I did not look carefully at the refurbished unit they shipped me as I was nervous handling the card (that I might break it).
But when I turned on the laptop after the installation, I did not get a pause at the BIOS saying ďI see new hardwareĒ like I did when I upgraded the RAM.
After the computer booted up I uninstalled the 8400 driver and then installed the 8600 driver. There was a snag at itís possible that Windows automatically reinstalled the 8400 driver during one the required reboots but I KNOW that I wrote the 8600 driver over top at least (I had hoped to do a clean uninstall then reinstall but Windows tried to grab a driver for me).
So now when I right click on computers, properties device manager it shows the video as still the 8400 card. The 8400 card I removed has a sticker on it that says KU907 on it. The invoice for the 8600 that Dell sent for the 8600 says KU907 on it too.
I think I was sent the wrong part from Dell (I paid a higher price for the 8600 GPU) . Is it possible that a legacy driver is making the Vostro think it has the 8400 when the part IS an 8600. Or when I go to the Device Manager, does the computer physically c... Read more

I found this list on the Dell site that tells you whether they have tested a particular model for its ability to be upgraded to Windows 10.   The Dell Vostro 3550 is not on the list of about 20 Vostro models, some with lower model numbers ,  some higher.   Will they ever test it?? 
  If you try to upgrade,  windows 10 copies files and then in the 2nd of the three major sections of the upgrade (where you have that big circle in the middle of the screen)  it just goes to a blank screen and then all disk activity ceases and it becomes well hung.   Of course now, the machine thinks its os is win 10 and you cannot go back to a win 7 recover point .  So you just lose all your data and apps and restore the factory image and then install 208 windows 7 updates and it takes like 8 hours in all.
Sounds like a similar problem that people had with Vostros going from win 7 to win 8.   Why not fix it.  

A:Windows 10 Upgrade - why isnt Dell Vostro 3550 on the list from Dell ?

Well, after spending the better part of whole day trying to figure out why somebody else's Dell Vostro 3550 was not displaying anything after an even longer period of downloading the Windows 10 upgrade (from Windows 7 in this case) it turns out the fix required was to upgrade the BIOS to A11 (end of 2012).

Hopefully this might save someone a wasted day in their lives. Before this I spent some hours before figuring out that the machine was in fact booting - only the display was black. So then it was a matter of figuring out key strokes to use (blind) to shut down and also enable the menu for safe mode. Safe mode worked, and so then more hours trying to work around the issue before finally stumbling onto some stuff online where the BIOS upgrade was mentioned - apparently also an issue with Windows 8?

I have done the custom settings for battery from dell power management. I have set that the battery should start charging when it is at 50% and stop charging at 80%. When the battery has charged 80%.It has stopped charging. But the discharging of the battery is not happening itself. I have to remove the ac power so that the laptop should start using battery instead of ac power. The battery should self discharge when it reaches 80% and start charging when it reaches 50%. which is not happening currently. Can any suggest any solution.

I just reformatted my dell computer and then re-installed Windows 98. The resolution on the monitor is lousy and locked at 480x640. I tried downloading a driver for my monitor, but none was available. I then reformatted and installed Windows XP and everything worked great. I want to put Windows 98 back on, but also want to be able to adjust the screen resolution. What do I need to do??? Thanks!

A:fuzzy resolution on dell monitor

If things look lousy and resolution wont go above 480x, it means the video drivers arent installed, usually. With win98, you can get them from either Dell website, or possibly from the driver CD that came with the computer (browse the CD for win98 video adapter driver). The monitor may need its own "driver" usually an .inf file, get from Dell site, also, for make and model on the monitor. WinXP contains a lot more drivers than win98-
Check what is listed in Device Manager- will show what has been detected and installed for "Display Adapter" and under Monitor. You have to know the exact model, type of video you have, like AGP, and whether it is a card or onboard (integrated) chip to find the right driver. Check at Dell site, or in system paperwork if you have that...should tell you what you have.

A:Problems with monitor resolution with my Dell

Go to the Dell support site, enter the service tag number from the back of your Dell. Then go the the software downloads section, Drivers and Downloads, and examine what video graphics drivers are available. It is usually nVidea GeForce2... download that driver software and carefully follow the instructions on how to install it.
This will usually take care of the problem.

I bought my Dell Vostro 3800 ST almost 2 years ago, sadly I didn't really do my research before I bought it, and it turns out, card that came with it wasn't really great for gaming and it's nearing the end of it's life.
So I'm planning to buy proper card, but my tower is waaay to slim to fit in it comfortably.
So my question is, will I be able to take my motherboard to another, non-Dell case? If so, what type of case would be good? I did try to find online, what type of motherboard it is, but if there's an answer to that question, I can't find or understand it.
I'd be grateful for any help provided :)

A:Will my motherboard from Dell Vostro 3800 ST fit into non-Dell case?

It's more or less a micro-ATX board so it will likely fit a standard case.  That said, wiring the power switch, hard drive LEDs, etc. will be difficult - they're not standard and it may be a lot of trial and error to make work.

Dell Vostro 3700 Laptop running Windows 7 64-bit, Service Tag 4QD3ZM1.

NVidia identifies the display controller as GeForce GT 330M and gives the following message; but, there are no display drivers offered by Dell for this system, at least not by model or service tag numbers.
Installed DriverRecommended
UpdateGeForce GT 330M--The manufacturer of this system requires that you download the driver for your GPU from their support site.

The GeForce M series and GeForce Go series notebook GPUs use drivers that have been customized by the notebook manufacturers to support hot key functions, power management functions, lid close and suspend/resume behavior. NVIDIA has worked with some notebook manufacturers to provide notebook-specific driver updates, however, most notebook driver updates must come from the notebook manufacturer. Additionally, the desktop GeForce graphics drivers will not install on Geforce M series and Quadro M series notebook GPU's.Click to expand...

Hey guys,

We bought the Dell U3011, which has a max resolution of 2560x1600 (its inputs are twin DVI ports, 2 HDMI ports, DisplayPort, Component Video). Apparently there are two ways to get this max resolution: DisplayPort or Dual Link DVI-D.

Can someone tell me if there is ANY way we can still use the max resolution on this laptop: HP Envy 15. The only port is has is HDMI and eSATA (no DVI even). The video card in the computer is an ATI Mobility Radeon 5830, you can view the specs here:

In the specs it says DisplayPort is supported on the GPU, but there's no jack for it on the laptop.

Any hope??

Thanks so much!

A:Bought new 30" Dell Monitor.. can't get max resolution

When using the HDMI, the max output is 1920x1200 as stated in the specs. If you do not have DisplayPort or DVI on your laptop, then it cannot be directly plugged into the monitor to get a resolution 2560x1600.

I have got a Dell D825HT Monitor and I bought it second-hand so I didn't get any drivers with it. I know my monitor is capable of reaching 1280x1024 but all I can get it up to is 1024x768. My video accelerator supports upto 2048x1536 and it's got the most recent drivers so I'm suspecting that it's the monitor drivers what are the problem. Anybody got any ideas? I would appreciate any help.

Hi Folks,
I'm new here and this is my very first post. I'm unsure if this question has been posted already so apologies in advance if it has.
Basically, I have a DELL Vostro tower that currently has 1GB RAM. I bought a 2GB Crucial RAM DDR3L stick which i thought was compatible. However when i insert the RAM and swich on I get a double beep.
Can anyone please advise me what i'm doing wrong here as I really dont know what to do next.
I was thinking the problem may be that the RAM is DDR3L instead of DDR3, however i'm really not sure.
Any help from anyone would be very much appreciated.
Thank you.
