Am new to this site. Am a non-techy grandma.
Have been dealing with intermittent flat screen monitor (Dell 15") for at least 6 months. Whacking (sometimes many times) finally gets it going. Wrist pad a great whacker! Finally went out and bought new one (Samsung 19") 2 days ago. Still unopened in box. Last night my sister mentioned having an extra (15" Dell); I took it but forgot setup disk. Have the disk for mine (Model #E151FPb; hers is Model #E151FP). Do I need setup disk? Can I just disconnect current monitor and plug in hers? If it works and stays on when I boot up, would like to return the Samsung. Don't care about size; would rather have $$$ back.

Usually, monitors are plug and play more often then not, windows usually has a lot of default drivers. If you really need a driver for it you should be able to find it off of Dells website.

Thanks, will try when I have some time to crawl under desk and unplug stuff. Am assuming if it doesn't work, will not fry my machine. I hope only difference between the 2 models is that mine is a year newer (disk says 2002), my sister said disk I left there was 2001.
