On the left side are different views. I am looking at the REAR view

At the Bottom, of the Rear of the computer, are 6 expansion slot openings.
Two of the expansion slot openings have an adapter card in them.
The other 4 are covered with an expansion slot cover. (Metal)

One of the adapter cards is a Graphics Card.

Looking at the Back of the computer, and from Left to Right;
there is a;

1) S-Video port
Black in color, round in shape

2) DVI port
White in color, parallelogram in shape

3) VGA port
Blue in color, parallelogram in shape

This article shows a graphics card with the same setup,

S-Video,

http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Video-Connectors-Tutorial/157/4

You can use the S-Video port, or the VGA port, or the DVI port; to connect a monitor.
However out of all three, the DVI port is the best.

VGA is Analog.
Your computer puts out a digital signal. (Digital video signal)

DVI is Digital Visual Interface. In otherwords - Digital.
Therefore DVI is the best.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface

Armed with the above information, can you clarify more about your problem?

For example;

Monitor cable has three prongs........

Using the above information, can you tell me what monitor cable it is?

Computer has two...........

Can you tell me where on the computer, you are trying to plug the monitor into?

Please post back in a Comment.

SOURCE: I was trying to hook up 3 monitors on my dell

Hi,

Take out the two last cards you added and boot again.

Then turn it off and insert only one card at the time to find which one is the faulty.

Good Luck!!!

SOURCE: dell precision 490 led 1 & 4 on

If you are getting no video at all, then we can use the diagnostic LEDs and the power LED to help determine the failure.

Why the card cage fan is working faster in dell precision 380 without getting slower?


Don't try to slow down the speed if you don't know the temperature from your processor or your motherboard. Look on the web for a monitor program to see if one of them is getting real warm Like above 60 degrees Celsius. Then your fan will work as hell.
If the computer is a bit older, perhaps the cooling paste, between the processor and the cooling body on the processor is dried. Only use the correct cooling past, and not anything else. Don't allow the processor to heat up above 65 degrees Celsius, because it won't live long after that.
If you do have a monitor program, you could slow down the fan, without any risk.

Boot up problem with Dell Precision 380 P4 Dual Core 3 GHz


Your computer is trying to boot from a floppy drive. Do you even have one? If not, then you need to go into the BIOS (set-up) menu and disable it. Be careful though, you could loose all your data on the computer if you make a wrong selection. As for an array message, you must have have a RAID disk configuration. That means you have 2 or more disk drives that mirror each other.

Hi! The diagnostic light that you are seeing refers to motherboard/system board failure. You might need to contact the manufacturer to have it replaced if the computer is still under warranty...hope this helps.
