Hi, all --

I recently purchased a Dell e171fp flat panel monitor and was wondering if anyone out there knows if there are drivers for it.  I tried accessing Dell's website but was unable to get in without registering, and I don't have a Dell system.

Any help (info, links, etc.) would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance --

Deanna    ;-)

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Thanks to you both for your comments!

Sorry that I neglected to mention the OS this monitor is attached to is running Win98 SE.  ;-)

I'd like to go with the link from Snowguy ... do you happen to know if the driver will work with an analog monitor (which this is)?

I only ask because the description of this driver says "digitally signed monitor driver" so I was afraid this wouldn't be compatible.

TIA!

De.   ;-)

"digitally signed monitor driver" this  is an electronic signature that can be used to authenticate the identity of the sender of a message or the signer of a document, and possibly to ensure that the original content of the message or document that has been sent is unchanged.

Yes it will work with your monitor.

driver guide is a fantastic site, though may be hard to get exactly the driver you need without wading through a load of drivers for different o/s or updates to drivers that require the original. Check before you d/load owt.
