Windows XP SP2Locked
I have two issues. Fist of all I?m new here and I would like someone to help me out with my issues please. I have a dell dimension 3000 with sp2. The SP2 came with the computer. My HD that came with the dell crashed and I tried to run the recovery console fix but could not. helas! I have then decided to just go and by a new HD, so off I went. I have got a wd with more that 320 G space on it. I came home, removed the old drive and change the pins to Master, mounted it, inserted my Windows SP2 into the desktop and did a clean install of the window XP SP2
I cannot see everything on my monitor. So I right click on my desktop, click on properties, choose the setting tab. Right there I could not move the screen resolution so I was kind frustrated, then the color quality said 16 bit, so I proceed to click on advanced. I click on the monitor tab and the monitor type did not show plug and play info and the properties icon cannot be clicked on. It was gray out. Therefore, I clicked on the adapter tab and there I have not information whatsoever concerning the adapter. Everything said <
>. I then clicked on list all modes. There I could see several choices and I tried each one of them. Nada, nothing, sometime it is too big, sometime it is too small.
How can I put the resolution of my dell back to 32 Bit and be able to see everything on my screen?
The clean install was done and I went in <
> computer just to be sure that everything is fine before start putting my files on it and guess what? I needed to reinstall the Ethernet, the Video card, and audio controller but I cannot see them on the window XP SP2 nor on my drivers and utilities cd that came with the computer.
Does anybody know where to find to files on these CD?s? I am sure there on it but for some reason the computer could not find them. Please, please.
