I have emachine model el1358g-51w. When turning pc on the monitor shuts down. I need to unplug and replug the power cable to monitor and it turns on again. I've tried replacing the power ca

The model number you gave did not include a monitor. Can you give details about the monitor itself like manufacturer and model number? Is the monitor an older style big and deep or an LCD panel style? The symptom you describe seems typical of some kind of electrical protection disconnecting power to the monitor same way as a circuit breaker in your house.

Screen turned side ways

Hold the CTRL key, ALT key, and press the up arrow key on your keyboard simultaneously. This might resolve the problem right away. If it doesn't, continue to the next steps. Try to navigate to the side of your taskbar opposite from your Start menu. Click the small arrow leading away from the small panel with the clock. Look for an ATI, nVidia or other icon related to your graphics card. Look at the box your graphics card came in if you cannot identify the icon. The box usually has the image somewhere in the design. If you do not identify the icon at all, look through your operator's manual for your graphics card to see what the tray icon looks like. Right-click the graphics tray icon and click "Rotation Settings." Turn the monitor's display around as you wish. Choose zero degrees as your angle if your monitor is upright.

Try pressing Ctrl + Alt + UP Arrow Key, or try Ctrl + Alt + and a different Arrow Key.

If that does not work: Right-click on empty Desktop > Graphics Options > Rotation. or Press "Ctrl-Alt" and an arrow key (left, right, up or down) to rotate the screen. Continue pressing the hotkeys and arrow keys until you reach the desired rotation. This works with most video drivers on Windows XP. If it doesn't, Click "Start," then "Control Panel," then "Display," then the "Settings" tab. Click the "Advanced" button. Check for an "Orientation" option. Select your desired orientation. Hope this helps.

I have a Dell Inspiron 531S, I have both two different monitor slot, does my PC support dual monitor systems?


The area on the back of the computer, that has two ports to connect a monitor, is a Graphics Card.

It is a PCI-Express graphics card, and is plugged into a PCI-Express x16 slot on the motherboard.
(Expansion Slot)

It has a blue VGA port, white DVI port, and black S-Video port.

The area on the upper left with a blue outline around a VGA port, is a VGA port connected directly to the motherboard. It is Integrated Graphics.

You CANNOT use Integrated Graphics, and a graphics card at the same time.

It's either use the Integrated Graphics VGA port, OR use the graphics port/s on the graphics card.
BIOS will Not support using both Integrated Graphics, and a graphics card.

HOWEVER, you can use the VGA port, and the DVI port when using two monitors.
You will be only using just the graphics card.

Example of a VGA port, (Connector), and VGA cable,

Example of a DVI port, and DVI cable,

1) Whatever monitor you have that has a VGA cable, plug it into the blue VGA port on the graphics card.

(There are VGA monitors {CRT} that resemble a small TV. VGA cable is usually attached.
There are also LCD flat screens that have a VGA connector, for a VGA cable, and may also have both a VGA, and a DVI connector.

To digress for a moment;
VGA is Analog. It uses an Analog video signal.
DVI is digital. It uses a Digital video signal.

A computer naturally puts out a digital video signal. This digital signal has to be converted by the computer, into analog for an analog monitor. This slows the graphics process down. This is one reason it is best to use digital )

2) Plug a monitor with a DVI cable into the white DVI port on the graphics card.

3) Turn the monitors on.

4) Turn the Inspiron 531s on.

5) When Windows has loaded, right-click on an empty area of your desktop computer screen.
Now left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list.
Left-click on the Settings tab.

6) You are now looking at a small window that has two monitor icons in it.
Monitor 1 icon, and monitor 2 icon.

Monitor 1 icon is your Primary Display.
Monitor 2 icon will be for the Secondary Display you are adding.

Note how monitor 1 icon is sitting to the Left, and monitor icon 2 is sitting to the Right.
This is how your monitors are supposed to be arranged on your computer desk.

If the second monitor is on the Left on your computer desk, you need to move the icons around.
Move monitor 2 icon to the Left.

Left-click on the icon, hold the left mouse key down, and drag the monitor 2 icon over to the left side of monitor 1 icon. (All the way over, or it will snap back to where it was)

It may matter to you how your monitors are arranged. It may not. Once you read the following it may help you decide.

7) Left-click on monitor icon 2 if you have not already done so.
Go down to where it states, "Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor"

8) Left-click once in the empty square, to the left of Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor.

9) Now left-click on Apply at the bottom Right corner.

10) Finally left-click on OK at the bottom Left corner.

You should now see your desktop screen on both monitors.

When using the internet on both monitors, you have to drag the screen from the Primary monitor to the Secondary monitor.

Go to the left side of the screen. Left-click right on the edge of the blue frame. Hold the left mouse key down after you click, and drag the screen across to the left.

Doesn't work?
Go to the right side, click on the blue frame, and drag the screen to the right.

This is why it may matter how the monitors are arranged on your computer desk.

It's kind of eerie your first time dragging the screen across.

You will also find out why it is best to use two similar monitors, when using dual monitors. The pixel resolution is different for both monitors, if they are different from each other.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Screen upside down

Most likely a setting with the video adapter. Check in the system tray (by your clock) for an icon for your video card. If you right click on the icon, it may give you an option to rotate the screen. If you can not find the icon there, check in the control panel. Another method to find it will be to right click on the desktop, click on properties, click on settings, click on advanced, and then look for a tab that says something like Intel Graphics, Nvidia Graphics, etc. On that page you should find a setting to rotate the screen.

I have windows 7 on my opitplex gx260 and want to upgrade the grafic card recomendations

The Optiplex GX260 is limited in it's graphics card upgrading, due to,

1) The limited size inside the computer case, if the Optiplex GX260 is a Small Form Factor, (SFF), or Small Desktop computer.
The Small Mini-Tower may also be fairly limited because of size constraints.

SFF is,
3.57 inches Tall (9.0cm)
12.54 inches Wide (31.9cm)
13.93 inches Long (35.4cm)

Small Desktop,
4.2 inches Tall (10.6cm)
15.3 inches Wide (38.9cm)
17 inches Long (43.2cm)

Small Mini-Tower,
16.7 inches Tall (42.5 cm)
7.1 inches Wide (18.1cm)
17.6 inches Long (44.7cm)

2) Uses AGP graphics cards.
However will use either 4X or 8X AGP graphics cards.
(AGP 8X being the better technology)

3) Power Supply
It's a 200 Watt supply, probably with a 10 Amp, 12 Volt power rail.
With one of the more powerful AGP 8X graphics cards out there, you probably will be alright, but the age of the power supply is what concerns me.

With the added load of an AGP 8X graphics card, it could cause the power supply to fail. Perhaps not right away, but probably right in the middle of a killer game.

The motherboard chipset is an Intel 845G.

The motherboard chipset is the Northbridge, and Southbridge chipset.

(CPU stands for Central Processing Unit, or Microprocessor, or Processor)

When dealing with Integrated Graphics such as is on your motherboard now, the Southbridge chip handles it.
(Chip, and Chipset are slang terms for I.C., or Integrated Circuit)

The Northbridge chip on the Optiplex GX260 is an Intel 845G. The Southbridge chip is an Intel ICH4.

Just about any AGP 8X graphics card, will S-M-O-K-E the integrated graphics you have now.

Also Integrated Graphics has to use some of the System Resources.
Some of the Processor, and Ram Memory resources.
With a dedicated graphics card, it has it's own Processor, and Ram Memory.
(GPU - Graphics Processing Unit, and graphics ram memory)

This frees up the System Resources for the computer, and allows better graphics.

The SFF, and Small Desktop GX260 will require using a half-height graphics card. Not as tall as a normal graphics card.

The Small Mini-Tower may also. The computer case size is measured at the Outside edges. This doesn't give you an accurate measurement, of Inside the computer case.

For this type of GX260, you will have to physically measure from the AGP graphics expansion slot, (The small black slot above the white PCI slots, and below the Processor socket), to the inside edge of the computer case.

Determine whether the graphics card has to be half-height, or full height.

In an added comment I will list three AGP 8X graphics cards examples.
One in a half-height configuration, two in a full height configuration.

How can we connect two moniters to one cpu

To have and use 2 monitors at the same time, you need a video card with a dual VGA outputs.

To use 1 monitor at the time you can buy a VGA switcher, to switch between the 2 monitors.

My motherboard is D101 GGC. can I use any graphics card that supports pixel shrader 3. solution please

The Intel D101GGC motherboard has one - PCI-Express x16 slot, used for a graphics card.

(The long slot that is right above the CMOS battery, and is below the Northbridge chipset)

For the Northbridge chipset it uses the ATI Radeon Xpress 200 chipset.

It would be best to buy a graphics card that uses an AMD ATI GPU. (Graphics Processing Unit )

HOWEVER, it is not a necessity. You can use a graphics card with an Nvidia GPU.

It's just better to have the same manufacturer of the Northbridge chipset, and the GPU of the graphics card, to be the same.
They 'Play Nice' with each other.

Although a graphics card has it's own processor, (GPU), and graphics memory, the Processor on the motherboard can be a limiting factor.

(Processor on the motherboard is part of the System Resources. The other part of the System Resources is the Ram Memory)

If you don't have a powerful enough Processor, (System Resources), you will have a 'Bottleneck' of graphics information.

Fortunately you are only wanting to use a graphics card that has Pixel Shader 3, and your Intel Pentium 4 processor, should do just fine.

(Is this for the Sims 3?)

This is the download page for the Motherboard Manual, for the Intel D101GGC motherboard, on Intel Support,

Left-click on the top file name listed in blue,
D101GGC Technical Product Specification [PDF]

This is a PDF file. After you click on the link, it may take a few seconds before the first page comes up.

I advise that you do not start looking through the PDF file, until it has fully downloaded.
You may break the download connection if you do.

Should you wish to save a copy of this motherboard manual to your computer, you may want to do this.

(So you can burn it off to CD disk for safe storage, and also so you can delete it off of your computer, to have more harddrive space)

At the top of the PDF file you will see some icons.
Click on the Floppy Disk icon.
It's the second icon from the left.
(AFTER the file has fully downloaded)

If you hover your mouse cursor over this icon, it will briefly reveal,
'Click to save this file to your computer, or another location'

After you click on the Floppy disk icon a small window will come up.
(Save a copy...)

At the bottom of this window you will see File name:
and a box to the right of it.
Write down the file name. Makes it easier so you can find it later.

Now go to the bottom right of the small window, and click on - Save

This file will go to your desktop screen, or your My Documents folder. (Documents for Vista)
(Start>My Documents for Windows XP)

Do you have some graphics cards in mind, or would you like an example to start from?

Are Dell monitors not compatible with older HP Pavilion Computer? I tried to connect my HP CPU to a Dell monitor and it will not recognize it at all.

It shouldn't make any difference which monitor you are connecting to any computer. In fact, I am running a 19" HP Flat Panel on my Dell Dimension 2400 right now. It is NOT a wide screen monitor as the Dell built in graphics card will not support the RESOLUTION RATIO required for the wide screen. Check what setting is "native resolution" for your monitor and see if your graphics card will support it. If not, using your old monitor, try different resolution settings. Right click on your desk top, click on properties and that should bring up the display properties box. Try a lower setting as larger settings are the ones that will give you a black screen. It will probably give you a smaller picture on your old monitor, or perhaps smaller or larger icons on the desk top. Accept the new settings, turn off your computer and switch monitors, and turn your computer back on. If you get a picture, but it does not fill the whole screen or the icons seem too large or small, then go back into properties from the desktop and try a different resolution ratio until the picture seems correct.
