    What monitor should I get for my dad?

    What is a good monitor to get for my dad? He likes to see things big on the screen and given that high quality monitors usually feature a high native resolution, what would be a good monitor for him? I was thinking of a 19 inch monitor with 1440x900 monitor which would be the lowest resolution...

    Dell XPS 410 Case or Fan being really noisy, how to fix?

    I have a XPS 410 (Dimension 9200) and I got it because it is a very quiet system. However, after a few years, the system is not that quiet anymore due to some sort of vibration in the case. It makes a rattling noise of some kind and it pisses me the hell off. Sometimes I can just move the...

    Dell Dimension 9200 (XPS 410) PSU Fried

    Thanks guys, looks like I'll have to shell out $84.99 in this dying economy. I was going to mention that my Dell is a BTX layout, but it seems that this is still compatible. Thanks guy for the quick answer to my seemingly complex problem!!

    My old Dell 1905FP ... Keep or Upgrade?

    Your 1905FP is actually a great monitor. It is either a Samsung PVA or AU Optronics P-MVA model. Either way, both panels are good all-around and are much better than the crappy TN panels. Nowadays, most "modern" monitors sold are TN panels. If you like your 1905FP, I'd suggest just keeping...

    If all 22 inch monitors are crappy TN panels, which one should I get?

    Thanks for all your reply guys, I especially enjoyed the information about the HP LP2275w because it is a S-PVA panel and all the other good discussions about TN panels. Further research, however, shows it has lots of problems and rarely is a customer that bought it happy with it, although it...

    If all 22 inch monitors are crappy TN panels, which one should I get?

    I was thinking of getting a 22 inch monitor, because my 20 inch monitor is a little too high in resolution for my dad. He can't read the small print and actually prefers the a bigger, non-native resolution because the words are bigger. Anyway, coming from a Dell 2001FP (S-IPS) I know what a...

    How to clean a XPS 410 front intake fan?

    Cool, thanks for the pressurized air tip. I guess I'll have to unplug all the cables and then take this computer outside to blow some air on it so all that dust doesn't end up in my room. It's a hassle, but I guess necessary for maintenance. Cool, thanks again guys. You guys are the best. :)

    Dell Ultrasharp 2009WFP

    How did you get Dell to replace your 2005FPW? My 2001FP recently broke and I was heart broken for some time. I'm convinced its easy to fix if anyone knew a little knowledge on monitors. I'm not sure if Dell would take it back because it is past its warranty period. I thought the same would...
