Ok, today I installed Windows XP to my computer. Before, I had Windows Media Edition XP, something like that. Our computer was giving up problems and someone suggested we just start over and reinstall XP and now we have XP professional. Now, when it loaded up, the resolution is at 800x600. Originally, the computer was at 1280 x 1024 so I know for a fact it's capable of going to that resolution. But when I try to change it, it says "Input status out of reach". I notice, many drivers need to be updated, but I cannot find my particular video driver. It's ATI Radeon, the video card/monitor and I cannot find it... I think this is the problem. Can somebody help me please?

Also this is my second time installing it today. The first time, I kept trying to change the resolution and the screen just STUCK to the error floating and would shut off the monitor. I tried putting the video cable in and out again but nothing.

Thanks for reading, help appreciated!

Also, this is my computer specs.

If you don't have another monitor handy to try, you can use the f-8 key to get to the menu where you usually choose safe mode. On that same menu, you should see a choice half way down the page where you can choose VGA mode.

This should be usable long enough to get into xp and install the correct drivers.

For googlers, this is an issue with nearly all Dell GX series desktops and workstations when reinstalling from xp sp3 Dell oem disks.
