SOURCE: Upgraded Dell Dimension 3100 memory to 2 Gigs - Windows XP fails

Did you add the two sticks with the 512 or remove the 512 and add the two 1gb sticks? Try booting the machine with ONLY the 1gb sticks in.

Your machine supports 1gb modules but they can't be higher than 533MHz. Check that the memory you purchased was either PC3200 (400MHz) or PC4200 (533MHz) and is 1.8v. If you post the part number off of one of the modules I can look it up for you.

SOURCE: Hi,how do I know wheather I need DVI or VGA cables

Hi,
no worries, any monitor you buy now which is an LCD has both inputs DVI and VGA. However, it might not necessarily provide both cables. I suggest you buy one where both cables are included.
From the description, the cable you have is VGA. The VGA PC interface for it should be smooth with small holes in it. The DVI PC interface is wider than VGA

Screen is pink on my dell dimension 3100


Check your monitor cable first! Try reconnecting your display cable both at the computer and monitor ends. If it's still pink, try reinstalling the vga graphics driver from the Dell Utility CD-ROM (Or download from Dell's support site http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/product-support/product/dimension-3100/drivers then select you PC model's video driver and re-install it. if after re-installing the video driver your display's still pink, try connecting to a different monitor - if a different monitor displays correctly, then its your monitor that's faulty. If it's pink on a different monitor too, then it's your PC video hardware that's got the problem - At least you'll know whether it's the monitor that's faulty or whether it's your computer's graphics hardware. (if your computer's video chip is faulty, then I suspect you'll need a replacement motherboard - $$$ - as I think the video is "on-chip" on the Dimension 3100 - so it may be time to consign it to the scrapheap and buy a new system if you can afford to)

Ethernet driver for windows 7


There does not seem to be a valid Windows 7 network driver:

You can try the driver for XP to see if that will work, otherwise you may need to buy a new NIC card.

My dell dimension 3100 had a virus and has to be formatted but i lost the windows xp installer, what should i do?


Install another OS unless you can find the receipt for the old WinXP purchase and wave that at a Microsoft retailer. Mint Linux is a good choice, though Fedora 13, bsd, OpenSolaris distros are very very good replacements. If you upgraded it enough for Windows 7 to work, try buying a copy of that from a dealer you like (or say, Microsoft.com , natch).

Hi,how do I know wheather I need DVI or VGA cables to connect CPU to a Monitor.I sold monitor when I got laptop now I want set up the Dell Dimension 3100 as aback up,so I'm looking at wide sreen monitors...


Most of the Widescreen monitors come with DVI as well as VGA connector. A VGA connector and DVI connectors are different in many aspects. First of all the DVI connector would be white in color and VGA would be blue.
VGA connector has 15 pins and DVI has 24 +1 pin
