Problems with monitor resolution with my Dell

  1. Hello,
    I'm rebuilding a Dell Latitude c810. I installed a 120g hard drive, added memory to get up to 256meg, added a dvd burner and installed Windows 2000 pro just like it came with. For some reason my monitor will only fill about 1/3 the screen. I try to change my resolution but it's as high as it will go. It also has limited colors. I know I need a driver or something but don't know exactly what. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    Go to the Dell support site, enter the service tag number from the back of your Dell. Then go the the software downloads section, Drivers and Downloads, and examine what video graphics drivers are available. It is usually nVidea GeForce2... download that driver software and carefully follow the instructions on how to install it.
    This will usually take care of the problem.
