Reports to MS and ATI are useless. That's only to help MS, not you. You need to contact Dell Support directly since this is not a good out of the box experience. The video card might need to be replaced or worse.
This is a user to user forum, not Dell Support.
Before getting the video card replaced, do the following -* Turn the PC off* Unplug the power cord from the back of the PC* Disconnect the monitor from the video card* Remove the case cover* Remove and reseat the video card* Disconnect and reconnect all other PC plugs, cables, and memory sticks (The memory sticks should click when fully inserted)* Close the case cover* Reconnect the monitor to the video card* Reconnect the PC power cord* Power on the monitor and then the PCIf it still has issues, contact Support and get the video card replaced.
