Ok
look..the graphic card is a miniature board,witha radiator on it,and it is situated perpendicular on to the mainboard.you will see that from its behind there a wire which goes directly to the monitor.thats the recognise part.
in case your computer has no video card,just onboard graphic adapter you have to identify the AGP or the PCIE slot from your mainboard.
this is how you do
look on the mainboard..youll see the processor un the middle..big,with a fan on it(ventilator)
under it..there are some long slots..like 10,12 cm long..paralles between them and paralles with the lowest laturaof your computer case..
the fisrt from up...the one which is situated upper is the agp one
I exclude the possibility to be a PCIE slot because your computer is not a today one..you more than sure you have a AGP slot.
ussualy is a brown or red collor..anyway it is different by th eother slots paralel with it.
ok..you put there the video card and voila...youre done.
however if you had no video before just the integrated on mother board solution,go in bios and desactivate the onboard video.
after that,put the instalation cd or just the ati catalist driver for your new nice agp ati radeon 9600 video board.
with all done,you should have a new board:)
like an advice..I dont recomand you to do this alone..go to a specialised service and let them do it for you,ask them to let you see the job for a next time...but now..if you never did that ..its quite ok to let a specialist hanndle it.,ok?
good luck
oh by the way..you may surf for a while on internet to see some photos with video boards atached on mainboards..
i give you the link whwere I found your dell..It might not have a video board,but only a integrated video on mother board..
so

I have a dell dimension 3000. I want to add a 2nd monitor. I believe the video is integrated, Does the unit have a slot to add a video card. What kind of card should be added?


The Dimension 3000 Springdale G chipset supports AGP 8X cards, integrated video, integrated audio, ICH5, 533/800 MHz FSB, dual channel DDR 333/400 memory, integrated Serial ATA, and the Intel Pentium 4 Prescott.
The AGP 8X slot refers to Advanced Graphics Port. You can add a AGP video card if you motherboard has that slot. Usually that slot is encased by a green plastic enclosure .

Can I add a PCI graphics card to my dell 340 to get a dual monitor


Yes you can. Depending on your model you can install

  • In the small desktop computer, up to two 32-bit, 33-MHz PCI cards.
  • In the mini-tower computer, up to four 32-bit, 33-MHz PCI cards.
  • One 32-bit AGP card. The expansion slot supports an AGP 4x (low profile in the small desktop computer) card operating at 1.5 V.
You can NOT install ISA expansion cards.

Find more details here and here.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Will a dell dimension 2100 support dual monitors


Yes it will but that will also depend on your graphics card to a degree.
To do it properly you need to install a new graphics card and disable the on-board graphics card from the bios.

Your new card should support std VGA as well as DVI

DVI is also capable of being hooked up to many large screen tvs

Dual Monitor


To arrange multiple monitors
This procedure applies when two or more monitors are connected to one computer.
  1. Open shortcutcold.gifDisplay in Control Panel.
  2. On the Settings tab, click Identify to display a large number on each of your monitors, showing which monitor corresponds with each icon.
  3. Click the monitor icons and drag them to positions that represent how you want to move items from one monitor to another, and then click OK or Apply to view changes.
note.gif Notes
  • To open Display, click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Display.
  • The icon positions determine how you move items from one monitor to another. For example, if you are using two monitors and you want to move items from one monitor to the other by dragging left and right, place the icons side by side. To move items between monitors by dragging up and down, place the icons one above the other. The icon positions do not have to correspond to the physical positions of the monitors. You can place the icons one above the other even though your monitors are side by side.
