    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 :eek: ) any and all help would be appreciated.

    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 6.14.10.4847 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.
