I hope that the links work; they are a bit slow. I have tried some other link but when I tried to zip the files I got warning " No file found or No Read Permission". So if the links above do not work, I'm stumped.

Do not use a Registry Cleaner - these are mostly sales scams that have no genius at all behind them. If you are using one then that's likely part of your problem. I would clean reinstall to get a perfect reinstall then don't do any tweaking at all beyond normal system settings as Win7 won't tolerate it. Reinstalling Windows 7.

A second-best option is to run Dell Factory Recovery: Dell Restoring Your Computer´s Software to the Factory Settings

Next would be to System Restore if possible before any Registry Cleaner was run and likely ruined your SYstem.

Since Magus identified the Nvidia driver as a cause of your BSOD's, besides uninstalling/reinstalling it if that fails to solve the issue then try other drivers for your GPU model as the latest might not be suitable. I would start with whatever Win7 delivers in optional Updates after install as these are highly reliable and vetted by MS for suitability for your system.

Other sources are Dell Support Downloads webpage for your Tag number, and the Nvidia site. Try them all starting with what the Win7 installer gives you.

Cannot set proper monitor resolution

I have followed sugeestions in my previous thread Big probs with Boot, many errors,hard disk and so on! and repaired my Windows installation.

I have encountered a problem involving my Dell ST 2210 monitor. The options to set screen resolution to 1920x1080 are no longer avaialble in Control Panel, the max being 1280x1024. In Device Manager the monitor is reported as Generic PnP rather than specific.

Searches have revealed nothing to help bar right-clicking on desktop then properties and procesing from there. No Properties option exists.

Please help.

Run Windows Updates and watch for optional Update for Display adapter which controls screen resolution. It should also deliver a Monitor driver if one is available and suitable for Win7.

If none arrive soon import the display driver from Dell Support Downloads webpage for your tag number.

The screen resolution issue self corrected. I think having repaired Windows lots of updates were outstanding, which, once installed, ironed out a few wrinkles.

In last 24 hrs only rwo errors have been reported
Code:
The NVIDIA Display Driver Service service has reported an invalid current state 32.
25/11 @22:20

The previous system shutdown at 7:46:07 PM on ‎11/‎25/‎2011 was unexpected.
25/11 @19:47
I'm not sure what the NVIDIA entry means, and Googling confuses If it is not serious I shall mark the thread solved.

MY thanks to everyone

If you don't use special settings only offered by the Nvidia software you can disable the NvIdia display driver service at services.msc as it is unneeded bloatware. You only need the driver.

Make sure that and anything else besides AV are also unchecked at msconfig>Startup and msconfig>Services after hiding all MS services. You now have a clean boot.

I'm really starting to wonder if the power supply may not be a problem here.
I used to have a nvidia card that behaved in a similar way it turned out to be related to a power supply that wasn't supplying the proper voltages.

This is just a guess mind you. I don't have anything solid to back it up with here short of the nature of the failure.

All now seems well.

As to the stuck drive, I wonder if that might have been a one off inexplicable glitch?

The report on it is Passed.

flukes do happen that never pop up again.
generally after experiencing a odd drive problem that debugging and troubleshooting can't identify I will just replace the data cable to the drive to be on the safe side. ...but yeah it does happen.
