I assume you are talking about using your TV as a second monitor?? if so, you will need to have a video card that is able to work this way. if you do, its a done deal. most video cards have optional hook ups in the back but, if its an integrated card, it may not. use the dvi or s-cord for this to work correctly. hope this helps ya:)

You will either need a new video card with a compisite (yellow connector) or a s-video connector (looks like the end of a mouse), or somthing called a scan converter. Either of these products will allow you to use your telivison as a monitor for your computer. The last option is to get a telivision with a monitor connection on it. They are called SVGA connectors. If you go this way, you will need a Male to Male SVGA cable. Good Luck!

Unless your TV has a VGA socket (it should be blue, have many pins and look just like the one on your computer monitor,) and an audio-in jack (it'll look something like a 3.5mm headphone jack,) you cannot connect the PC to your TV without other accessories. If it DOES have those ports though, just buy a two-ended headphone cable and an SVGA connector cable (unless you can use the one from your computer monitor,) from Monoprice.com, hook them up, hit 'input' on your remote with both TV and PC on and you're in business! Best of luck with it!

What kind is motherbourd


The Dell Dimension 2400 motherboard is proprietary to the Dell Mitac Chassis. It should work in any Dell 2300/2350/2400/4600/4700 case. The main item is the Dell specific power/control panel connection. If you move the board take the control panel with it.
(Personally, it isn't worth the effort)

Can't get router to connect to Dell Dimension 2400 desktop


Try turning OFF DHCP from services. This may fix your problem. Look for "DHCP Client", double click on it (or right click and choose properties), STOP the service, then set it's startup type to 'manual'. That'll kill it. See DHCP is what "Gives out/assigns addresses" and on the ONLY PC, it is the First one... 192.168.0.1... Both PC's will be assigning themselves as that, and that will cause a conflict. As the Router now does the DHCP work. Of course ensure you DO have DHCP set on router.

How do I get my TV to display my Dell Dimension 2400? I have the cables for the connection and I have connected other computers to to TV with no problems-- it seems this is more of a software/display...


Try this: right click on the desktop (wall paper picture) and select "Properties" (up to XP) or "Graphics Options" (Vista). You should be able to select you TV as a second display. The TV option may only show if it is connected.

Desktop screen won't stay on


how old is your screen, if its older than 2-3 years mostly its gone and you need to replace it. If its in warranty then contact dell customer support. Life of screen can be around 3 years after that i may not work.
Another test is to connect it to some other computer and see if its working, then we can focus on some output issue from the CPU.
