Re: monitor will not start
So, when the monitor is on, connected to the wall (not to the computer), there's absolutely no signal? no message on the screen? no colors moving? Have you tried with another power cable? You can try this test. Use the computer's cable to test if the problem is the monitor's cable.

Not sure what you are trying to do. If you are trying to convert 32 bit to 64 bit Apps, try going to manufacturers website to look for drivers.
Win 7 will actually find the best drivers for your devices.
Turn the computer off, unplug the power cord and open the case. Check the connectors running into the back of the drive. Make sure they're seated properly, as well as the slot on the motherboard the drive hooks into. If the BIOS still isn't seeing the drive after this, then there is either a failure with that slot on the motherboard or a failure with the drive itself. You can always take the drive out and test it in another desktop to make sure it's not your motherboard.
If you turn it on and there is no sound of a fan running or the hard drive spinning up, then you will be needing a new power supply. If you hear the fans running but there is no signal on the monitor, you might have a different hardware problem. In that case, open the case and remove all of the connections to the hard drive and CD. Leave only the cpu and memory connected. Then try to start it. If you have no luck, try to use a different monitor. If still no luck your motherboard is bad or the CPU is bad.
Hi. the mother board seems to be having some initialization issues during boot up. this is common when the mother board is failing. i would check to make sure the battery on this board is working. if it is, the board my be ruined. power board seems to be fine. please rate and god bless.
You would probably do right to reinstall Windows. The bios handed off to Windows long before the splash screen comes up. It is probably a faulty driver or corrupt registry entry. If it was me I would reload Windows
If you have no experience with this, it might be easier to just copy the data from your Dimension to a external usb harddisk and then to the XPS. But i will try to explain it.
I've looked a bit around: your XPS hard drive is a SATA drive, while your the drive in your Dimension is probably a PATA-drive (just connection types. Look at the hard drives and compare them with this image to see which types they are.) As far as I know the XPS 530 has a Foxconn G33M-S motherboard, which contains one ATA (PATA) connector. So you should be able to just connect the hard drive from your Dimension into the XPS. To make it work properly, you should set the drive from the Dimension to slave. This can be done by setting the jumpers next to the cable connector. The jumper setting depends on your hard drive model. Usually the possible settings are shown on the hard drive. If you feel uncomfortable with this whole thing, you could ask someone, who has some experience and who you trust to do it for you, or just use an external usb hard disk
Make sure the computers are off and disconnected from the power outlet, when you open the case... Dell offers a user manual for your Dimension and XPS. Maybe it's of some help by removing and placing the various parts... Please tell me how it worked out. As you probably understand, I can't take any responsibiity for damage to your system... If you have any problems, just post them here!
