Xx love sex cam - Updating video driver dell deminsion 2400
apic=no doesn't do anything, but it prevents the computer from turning itself off (It gives a halt message, then sits there until you press the power button). I noticed that with the default boot parameters, when the splash screen comes up (xubuntu splash screen) it will display correctly, freeze, switch to a black screen, then come back up with it in 16-bit colors and continue booting, as if that is the point where it loads the graphics drivers.
I was looking up specs on a Dimesnion 2400 since I just came across one. Anyway, when I did some Ubuntu installs onto 845-vintage Optiplexes, GX240s were no sweat, quite a few GX260s had SERIOUS video issues until I updated the BIOS.
Here are instructions on how to install a fresh copy of Windows 7 on a Dell Dimension 2400 desktop system.
The Dell Dimension 2400 is a low budget desktop which I believe was manufactured in 2004.
All of the drivers for the Dell Dimesnion 2400 are installed automatically except for two.
The sound driver is quickly installed during one of the first automatic updates when you use the system. Windows 7 installs a generic graphics driver which forces you to use a low resolution.
Oh, and by the way I made a typo I just caught in the previous thread: should be: nomodeset I don't think this will make any difference, as both i915.modeset and nomodeset are telling the kernel not to set the video mode for you as this often results in unreadable, black, white or blank screens.
acpi=off(only lowercase) makes it 640x480 resolution, but doesn't fix it.
Now Windows XP is a wonderful system but prone to many viruses which force me to install and reinstall my system with a Windows XP Upgrade disk I purchased for 99 bucks a couple of years ago.
The most annoying part of the reinstall is the need to activate Windows by telephone because the product has been activated too many times.
I've tried the Intel graphics installer wizard, which makes no difference.
