Dell Dimension 8300 Series P4 478 Socket.
The monitors VGA output connects to a video cable. The other end of the cable pluges onto the motherboards VGA output. On the cable (either end) there are 2 screw tightners which allow you to tighten the cable connectors to each VGA output. If the cable connector is broken than you need a new cable. If the monitor has a solid cable connection to the monitor & that end is broken than you need another monitor. If the VGA on the motherboard broke you can add an AGP video card to the motherboard & re connect everything. Here is a link for an AGP video card.

Depending on how much it has broke away, you may be able to resolder it back on, or find someone who can. Other than that it will be a new board, I suspect.

It seems at least a few connections are OK, so probably worth a try, before scrapping it.

Dell SE198WFP 19" LCD won't come out of standby

I went into the BIOS (with F2 during restart) and changed a value -- IIRC it was called something like "power management scheme" -- from the default S3 to the other choice, S1. Now the old Dell XP Dimension 2350 will go into and out of Standby correctly and the new SE198WFP 19" LCD will too.

Power failure & dell dimensions 5100 will not turn on

" Is there anything else that I can do before taking to a service person?"

Yes, you can unplug the computer for about one minute, then reconnect the power and attempt to turn it on. Do any of the fans come on? Any beeping from the motherboard? Any lights flash anywhere on the comupter when you do that? Answers to those questions will be helpful to the technician if you do have to take it in for service. If you have a spare power supply around I would try that too before resorting to a service call.
