Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Cassette player hook up

I'm trying to connect a cassette player to my Dell Dimension 3000 series computer. Instead of the the normal 3 connectors - red (or pink), green, & blue; I have a fourth. There is a black one betwen the red & green. The markings are too small for me to decipher. Do I still plug the cassette player into the blue? What's the black one for? Thanks.

Is there a program out there that will convert my old cassette tapes or vinyl...


The short answer is yes. There is a program out there that will record cassette tapes or vinyl records to CD. Today, I will show you how. If you have the right software and the right cords, getting your cassettes and Vinyl onto your computer, then onto CDs, is a pretty easy task. Just follow the steps below and you will be on your way to bringing your audio into the 21st century! What you need: To make the conversion, you will need a (free) audio recording program, a tape or record player and a cord to connect the device to your computer. Here's a breakdown:
1. Audacity. This is the program that will record your audio to your computer.
2. LAME-encoder. This is a file that will convert your audio to MP3.
3. A record player or cassette player. Hopefully you already have one of these.
4. A cord to connect the player to your computer.


The first step is to install Audacity and LAME,
Now that we have the software installed, we can look at connecting your tape player, or record player, to your computer.
Your player will have one of two types of outputs. You will either have a standard 3.5mm headphone jack, or RCA audio output jacks.
If your device has RCA outputs (left image)to connect to your computer.
If your device has a 3.5mm jack (right image) to connect to your computer.
The other end of the cable will connect to the line in jack on your computer

Now that we have the software installed and the cassette/record player connected to the computer, let's record something!
Put a cassette or LP into your player. Get the player to the place where you want to start recording and pause or stop the player.
Now, let's stop messing with all this hardware and get the computer set up. First, go to your control panel and open your audio settings.
In XP, go to the audio tab and click "volume" under sound recording. Place a check next to "line in". If you don't see a "line in" option go to options and click advanced. Place a check next to "line in" there.
In Vista/7 go to the recording tab. find your line in, select it then choose "set default". Click on "properties", go to the levels tab and turn up the level to 80 or 100. (This varies depending on what you are recording so you may need to adjust this to get it right).
As you can see, Audacity is pretty much a more advanced sound recorder. To begin recording, press the play button on your record/cassette player then click the red "record" circle on audacity. You are now recording to your computer! When you are done, click stop on audacity and press stop on your player.
After recording, you can now export your audio as an MP3. Go to the file menu and click "Export as MP3". You can now choose the name of the file and save to wherever you want. You are done recording!

I am trying to hook up my monator to the computer(cpu) and only nave one wire to it. I think there should have 2. I was looking for a hookup diagram. Can't find one HELP


There should be two cables coming from your monitor -- one that hooks up to the computer and one that goes to the outlet, for power. The outlet cable looks almost like a normal power cable, with three prongs on one end and three holes on the other end.

The cable that hooks to your computer is likely a serial cable, with a blue connector that hooks up to the blue port on the back of your PC. Instead of the serial connector, you might have a DVI connector, which is skinnier and should have a removable white cap on it. If your computer has a DVI port, than you can use the DVI cable, otherwise you'll have to use the serial cable (with the blue connector).

Hope that helps.

My dell dimension 3000 PC has run out of memory space on the C-drive. How do I add more memory?


Looks like that computer ships with a standard 40GB drive. If you have ran out, you'd need to go to your local computer parts store (ie, frys) or buy an additional hard drive. Your computer uses the IDE interface for hard drives, which is a 40-pin connector. You can but these pretty cheap now. Once you get it, it's just a matter of opening the case, and putting it in there. You can't connect it to the wrong place.

Where do I connect speaker to GX100?


Look at the "back" of the computer-casing.

Look for 3 similar holes (green, blue, and pink).

Insert your microphone into the PINK hole.

Insert your speaker-connector into the GREEN hole.

If you have a cassette-deck with "line-out" connectors,
connect it via the BLUE hole.

Power button flashes yellow and will not power up.


Try a different know good working power supply and only hook up the main power connector to the motherboard as well as the p4 connector. If you get power then you know that the original power supply is bad.

If you try another known good working power supply and you get the same yellow light then the motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced.
