If you want to run two monitors on this computer you will need to buy a viedo card that can run two monitors at once. The computer has built-in video and if you add a video card it will only run from it and the other will be disabled. Your computer does not have a PCIexpress slot or a AGP slot due to it is from 2002 and in the computer world that is really old technology...sorry. So you will need to locate a PCI video card that can do dual-view if you want to run two monitors. I will find one and post you a link to it in a few minutes.

    Here is a link to a website that I purchase computer parts from and they have a huge selection of cards available to fit your computer(over 40). This link is to a pretty basic card that can run two monitors at the same time and has a s-video out connector for a television. It is a sub $35 dollar card and is not for gaming. Let me know what you are using the computer for so I can further assist you to the card you need and how to install it.

Do the dell xp monitor 8110 have wireless


It won't have a wireless connection built into the computer. You'll have to purchase a separate dongle for a wireless connection. You can pick up a wireless adapter for around $30 USD.

Reinstalled Windows XP on an old computer (DELL Dimension 2400) and the monitor won't display above basic resolution. Downloaded and reinstalled the monitor driver and still no good. Opened up START


According to the Dell Support web site the Dell Dimension 2400 has a built in Intel 3D extreme graphics adapter, assuming you are using this and not a PCI graphics card.

Go to the Intel Download Centre and run their Intel Driver Update Utility which will automatically scan your system for updated drivers for any installed or integrated Intel devices.

If the Intel Utility identifies an updated driver for your graphics adapter then download and install that which should enable you to configure a higher resolution for your display.

Dell Dimension 8400 running xp has died. Can I put the hard drive into a spare slot in a Windows 7 PC to get the data off the XP HD?


Two Options:1. Yes you can as long as your Windows 7 PC has the correct connection for your hard drive. Most likely you need an IDE connection. If you have an IDE hard drive and the Windows 7 PC has an IDE connection, then you will need to make sure to "slave" the hard drive by moving the jumper on the hard drive to slave mode.
2. If your Windows 7 pc doesn't have an IDE connection, the purchase a USB to IDE cable adapter:http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2329300&CatId=3770

This way you can plug your hard drive into any computer through USB.

I have a Dell Dimension 2400 that I am running dual monitors on. I recently upgraded to Windows 7 professional from Windows XP and now I can't get both monitors to run at the same time. I have a Nvdia...


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.

Missing Windows XP Product Key-Need to Reinstall/Repair XP


I'm assuming you have quite a lot of computer savvy??? You'll need to access that drive and get the original key off it. Try connecting the drive to another pc and see if you can get to the Windows folder. Once there, use Jellybean Keyfinder to navigate to the Windows folder in that drive and take note of the OS key. From there you can reformat and use the existing key.

Windows Xp


In addition to installing the operating system (Windows XP) you will need to install the drivers for the system.  If you system is a Dell Dimension 1100 you can get the drivers from this link:
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=DIM_CEL_1100&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

Driver installation order is:
Desktop system software (R121089.exe) Intel Chipset Utility (R96614.exe) Intel Video Driver (R104515.exe) Audio Driver (R105155.exe) Network Driver (R105786.exe) Modem Driver (R133743.exe or R73044.exe)
Once you have all the drivers installed, then you can install your applications and configure your internet connection.

It sounds like it is a settings issue in Windows, you should be able to fix it by following this order:
Go to your Start Menu>Control Panel>Display>Settings>Advanced

Click on: "GEForce Go XXXX" and on nView Display Mode change from Single Display to either "Clone" or "Dualview"

Than click apply and that should fix your problem.

If that doesn't work, than download the Acer Driver with the for Windows XP if your monitor is certified for vista.

This is a common issue with vista,
Hope this helps!
