Been scouring the net but haven't been able to find anything so I thought I'd post. Sorry if there's been a lot of these types of threads but here's my issue.
Installation of the operating system for Windows 7 actually goes without much difficulty but when I go into the post install setup the monitor goes blank. I've been poking around and what I've managed to conclude is that Dell likes to use it's own generic driver
for video display rather than use the Windows Standard VGA Compatible Driver that should start up by default.
The reason why I've come to this conclusion is because I tried booting the new install in safe mode and I could actually see the initial setup page. Of course you can't do the post install settings in safe mode so I couldn't go any further.
My question for you guys, is there any way for me to disable the Dell OEM drivers
that like to start overriding the generic drivers that come with windows? And if so how?
