Hello all, My friend has Vista Basic 32 bit. She has a Dell Vostro 400. Well since she added the E machine Monitor she has had to always push F1 to get it to go in start up mode. Well now she says, she has to continually push F1 until it goes into startup mode. So we are not sure what is going on.


It says there is an extra graphic's download or something like that. How do we fix this issue?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

I doubt anyone here will know what you are talking about from your first post (hence why you got no replies in a week), so, additional clearer information will be needed.


Do you mean she plugged in a new LCD monitor, or that she installed some e machine monitoring software?


What is "start up mode"? Why does she have to push F1, what happens if she doesn't push F1?


What "says there is an extra graphic's download or something like that"  Do you mean that when you get into windows it tries to install some sort of graphics driver for a new graphics device or something?


Are you able to get into windows?
