Options 'greyed out' when trying to adjust screen resolution.

This question is not answered

The screen resolution needs adjusting on my dell monitor (all icons are massive), but in the display settings the slider for resolution is immovable and all options under the Monitor tab are greyed out and unavailable.  I have downloaded new drivers  after reinstalling xp on my dell dimension 2400 series desktop. The trouble is the new drivers won't install, the file just sits there. It seems to be just a user guide although says it is an .exe file. Is there a trick to getting the software to run?

Any help would be much appreciated, I cannot be the first person that has been stuck in this catch 22!!

Thank you, Deborah
