Dell Inspiron 1501 Graphic Issue

By technogeek-1995 ·
My sister's Dell Inspiron's 1501 hasn't been work with viewing photos and videos (crappy picture). I updated the drivers for the Graphic card. I plugged it into an external monitor, it had crappy picture too. I did a diagnostic to check the video card connections, they checked out OK. Here are some Specs...

ATI Radeon Xpress 1150 256mb
AMD Processor
1gb ram
generic dell lcd monitor w/ truLIFE
Windows XP sp3

More Specs by request...PLEASE HELP...(it doesn't help much when you can't edit/view photos when you are a journalist)

Video memory

Dell's specs say it has up to 128 MB of video memory and that should result in better displays than you describe. Possibly you don't have the display settings set to the maximum size or resolution.

I restored all the settings to factory default when I troubleshoot it...It didn't work. Anything else? (hopefully)
