  1. I can't believe nobody has posted here to thank you for this!

    A Dell technician asked me over chat to look for the card and I misunderstood -- I thought he was referring to some sheet of paper that was bundled with the monitor.

    Thanks for the clear help. I'm relieved I'm not the only one to get confused by this bizarre design choice.

  2. need a software that could help in knowing monitor name,serial no and product no..

  4. thx pal! that was helpful having in mind i dont have my manual with me

  5. I just bought a Dell monitor... no power lead, no video connection lead no audio lead, no support cd, nothing. All the extras i will have to buy total around £60 just to get it fully functional. I could have got another 20" AOC widescreen for £70!!! Never going near Dell again.
