Hi and welcome back to FixYa,

For your concern on to reconnect either do an Ask Me in the profile page of the expert who initially answered you in the Live Session or email for additional options.

Incidentally, were you able to figure out how to display your VCR through your computer?

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    The VCR is an analog device. The computer needs an interface/adapter, an A/D converter (analog to digital). For video, the device is called a video capture device which could be a PCI card or an external unit which plugs into the USB port of the PC. Often a TV tuner is incorporated and the device is aptly called a TV Capture Card. Thereafter, appropriate capture softwares are used to copy realtime the movie (VCR playing). The two RCAs of the VCR for audio (white & red) should go to the Line IN of the PC to simultaneously record the audio together with the video using a stereo RCA to phone plug.

Start up fault

I'm not an expert at this!!
I looked up Dell Tech Faults on another pc.
Disconnect power and press on button to discharge pc. Remove side panel. Remove all USB port cables including hubs. Remove memory from the CRIMMS. Reconnect memory. Reconnect usb's. Replace panel and power cord. You can always connect to Delle Tech Support - doesn't cost.

For some reason only known to anoraks or rocket scientists--- this works and pc is restored to former glory.

Hope this works for you too.
