You can install a dual port pci serial card if you have a free pci slot on your motherboard. This one is from Tigerdirect.

You should have 2 video ports on the 8400 GS card. One is the standard 15 pin VGA port and the other is the DVI port. You should be able to use these ports on the card to connect dual monitors. If you use the video port integrated on the motherboard you will bypass the 8400 GS card. Here's a link from Microsoft about running dual displays:

The other issue is whether your monitors are DVI compatible.

I've had a look at the Dell website, at

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/SYSTEMS/dim2400/en/sm_en/advtshoo.htm

Which basically tells you to do what you've already done.

All I can suggest is you check again, but both ends of the ide connections to mother board and HDD / Disk drives.

If its dusty in there, I'd remove clean and reseat the ram and any PCI cards as well.

I have a dell dimesion 2400. the usb ports will not work. What do you suggest i do o fix this problem


1. Usually this is a setting in the BIOS (Basic input/out systems) which enables the usb ports. Sometimes a firmware upgrade from the manufacturers web site will resolve this issue. WWW.dell.com ( support).
2. This could be that the usb port have been shorted out. This will require a tech to resolve at the mother board level. Most time this will require a mother board replacement.

Hp pslp-le mother board


this motherboard will take an add-n serial card (PCI slot) to get your nine pin connection. the hieght that this card can be will be determined by the case room you have inside your particular case.
there are three PCI slots on your motherboard, this is where you install the card if the slots are not used by other cards.
Here is a link to the type of card you need---

The only way is to purchase a USB Board to install in the PCI slot, but that would be overkill since you PC already has 4) 2.0 USB ports. I would exchange that internal reader for an external reader.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
