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 .

My dell dimension 3000 pc has run out of memory space on the C-drive. How do I add more memory?


You can't directly add additional memory space to the C drive, but you can add additional hard drive and move the files from C drive to the additional drive. If there's enough space on D or E drive, you can move from C drive to the other drive. Note that your C drive includes your Desktop, My Documents files, My videos, My pictures, My Music etc.. So make sure you haven't saved extra files on you Desktop or My Documents. To free up some space, you can run DiskCleanup utility which is built-in with the Operating System. To do this, Right click on the C drive, Properties - Disk Cleanup... and then provide positive input, eg. yes or ok. good luck..

Try unplugging your video card and re-seating it. Sometimes, when they are cleaned, the card gets bumped and isn't quite seated right. If that doesn't work, try doing the same thing with your memory sticks.

My dell dimension 3000 PC has run out of memory space on the C-drive. How do I add more memory?


Looks like that computer ships with a standard 40GB drive. If you have ran out, you'd need to go to your local computer parts store (ie, frys) or buy an additional hard drive. Your computer uses the IDE interface for hard drives, which is a 40-pin connector. You can but these pretty cheap now. Once you get it, it's just a matter of opening the case, and putting it in there. You can't connect it to the wrong place.

Added 2g to a dell dimension 3000, only 1g recognized


Dell has a really good support site. You log on, enter your service tag number (on the top of side of your PC) and they will tell you exactly how much ram you support, the type of ram needed and how many slots it has. If it was a matching pair then it should be working, unseat it and reseat it, it may not be in all the way. If still don't show then put it back in the old computer and see if it reads it. If not then the RAM stick got damaged during the move. But no doubt you should be able to handle more that 1GB of RAM. Good Luck, let me know if you have any questions.

Want to buy more RAM..


Your dell dimension takes DDR ram. These are the specs:

Supported pin types: 184 pin DIMM (regular desktop DDR ram)
Supported memory types: DDR PC2700 or DDR PC3200
Supported speeds: 333mhz or 400mhz
Supported stick sizes: 128mb, 256mb, 512mb or 1gb.
MAXIMUM MEMORY ALLOWED: 2gb (2 x 1gb sticks)


If you buy two of these you will max out for ram and give you the best performance::

How do i remove panel to install memory on dell 3000


Countryboy,

On most DELL desktops, there is a button on the top and bottom. If you push those at the same time it releases the catch holding the case together. When they are released the case will fold open, there is no removable panel. it is a hinged mechanism.

Hope this helps you out
