What's the 7-character "service tag number" on the sticker of that Dell Dimension 9100?

How much RAM does it currently have?

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Go into the Device Manager and advise what the device description is in the Display Adapters heading.

Double-click that device description to open its properties window, then click Driver(tab), then advise what the driver version and driver date is.

1.00GB RAM
Service tag:8RP6981
Version:6.14.106525
Date:3/29/2005
According to service tag number 8RP6981, here is the Dell support and software site that's specific only to your Dell Dimension 9100 desktop. You should add and save this site to your browser favorites/bookmarks list so you can refer to it when needed.

It supports up to 4096 MB(4 GB) of RAM. Because you have the 533 MHz frontside bus speed model, it uses DDR2 PC2-4200 modules. See here. Considering that you like to watch videos(which is a system-hungry function), I highly suggest that you increase the amount to at least 2048 MB(2 GB). The motherboard has 4 slots for installing modules, and they need to be installed in pairs.

You advised the driver version is 6.14.10.6525 and the driver date is 3/29/2005, but you didn't advise what the device description is in the Display Adapters heading in the Device Manager. I believe it's an ATI Radeon X300 SE, but I need to confirm that. If it is, here is the most current driver for it.

I would add another 1 GB of RAM anyway and would update the ATI graphics driver.

If you haven't updated Microsoft DirectX 9.0c in a long time, go here to download and run the web installer for its latest release. It'll detect and install only what it needs to update DirectX.

Good! At least you made some headway. (y)

--------------------------------------------------------------

Right-click an empty space on the desktop, then click Properties - which will bring up the Display Properties window.

Click Settings(tab) - Advanced - Adapter(tab).

What's all the information listed there?

I was mainly interested in how much video memory was listed for that ATI device in the "Adapter" tab, but that's not necessary now that you got the problem resolved by changing the resolution. (y)

You're welcome. :)
