I just finally got my computer up and running after a year and the many thing (HDMI) I love about my computer is down! WILL SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME?!?! I have been trying to fix this everyday for the past 2 months! THANKS TO ALL IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR KIND CONSIDERATION OF ATTEMPTING TO HELP ME IN ANY WAY! :)
Wrong!!! Dell does support XP. Go to the Dell site, locate your PC, select downloads. Then select the operating system - XP.
Meanwhile I have a crazy problem. I had the HDMI working flawlessly - with no special accomadation. Then I had to do a new install of Windows XP Professional , SP3 (as before). Now it works with all kinds of smudges, shadows, etc. I paid to have all my drivers updated - still the same problem. I have yet to find a solution.

Thanks for the reply. It seems my problem was more mysterious than I have realized. I have very distorted color and shadowed and mess up blacks. I tried adjusting the variables in "Display". Nothing seemed to help. At one point I completely lost the picture on the other monitor. I gave up & closed the PC down. When I rebooted the problem had disappeared!!!
From your explanation I understand that the issue is intermittent. When the issue occurs try to connect an external monitor and check what type of video appears on the external monitor. If the video is good on external monitor the problem is with the LCD of the laptop else the issue is with the motherboard.
