    My Dell E521 is a desk top, and yes I have tried the sender with another PC and it works perfectly

    My big trouble is trying to configure dual monitor mode. On the other pc it is easy I can do it in settings but not with this Dell. When it starts to boot it shows the start up screen and then it goes blank and the main monitor takes over

Hi,

I would suggest running your laptop S-Video out direct to the TV's Video IN first to verify that indeed it is running. To my understanding, you need to press Fn + F? key a couple of times to cycle through the different settings: LCD only, LCD + TV and TV only. The F? would be one of the function keys with the monitor icons on it. In most instances, you would need to lower down your Screen Resolution (and Screen Refresh Rates) in the laptop's Display Properties to match that of the TV. Soon as you can display on both the laptop's LCD and your TV using direct S-Video out to Video IN of your TV, then you can remove the S-Video connector/cable and hook it to the TV sender kit. thereafter it's a matter of finding the right channel on your TV (no longer in Video mode).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    Copy that your PC is a desktop. Most TV require 800 x 600, have you tried lowering your screen resolution?

    To enable TV, under Win XP: Go to Start;
    Control Panel; Appearance and Themes; Display; Settings; Advanced;
    select the "tab" for your Graphics card; select "Device Settings";
    select TV. Or a variation for other Windows version.

    Alternately, for some ATI. under 'Display Properties',
    'Settings', 'Advanced', 'Displays', click the "TV" button, then
    'Adjustments' tab. There you will find options to change the
    vertical/horizontal size and position if needed.
    .
    Additionally, the option on some Dells is to
    change to "Clone" in Nview. But "Clone" is grayed out unless you have
    the RCA connector on the far end of the "S to RCA" cable, terminated in
    a VCR or TV or TV sender kit as in your case.

MY DELL DIMENSION E521 WONT BOOT WINDOWS AFTER STARTING UP, I WAS TOLD THAT THE VIDEO CARD COULD BE BAD, WHERE IS THIS LOCATED IN MY PC AND CAN i USE ANY VIDEO CARD TO RPLACE THIS?


Hello, if you were told by an expert tha you need a video card, here what you need:
1: You do not have a slot card type video card in your system( Dimension E521) your system has on board video, which you can not remove from the system but disable it.
2: Your system has PCIe x16 slot that can be used for new video card.
3: Link below will give you a list of PCIe x16 video cards, you can pick and choose according to your needs. Do you need DVI (digital connection, does your monitor has a white port in the back or just the blue one?), or regular VGA (blue port) is enough, do you need HDMI etc...
bottom line is any of those video card will work.

4: I am assuming you have never done this before so before you open up computer and start taking things apart go to the link below and download service manual for Dell Dimension E521 ( I selected the model for you so you don't have to look for it :-) )
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dime521/en/SM_EN/index.htm

5: In the service manual link there are several Sections like:
Before You Begin
About Your Computer
Technical Overview
Specifications
Advanced Troubleshooting
System Setup
Removing and Installing Parts click on each one and read about it first to familiarize your self with the system.

6: Once you feel confident enough remove the power cable from from computer.
-> open computer cover
-> follow instructions in service manual under
->Removing and Installing Parts
-> Cards
->PCI Express Cards
-> Installing PCI express card.
-> Close computer cover
-> plug monitor cable to new card
-> power on the computer
-> if Picture quality is bad that means card was not properly recoginzed, install drivers from the CD that came with the video card.

I hope this helps, if you get stuck at any step or not clear feel free to post back.

Kind Regards,
Amar Sondhi

    According to the X1300 specifications here it does support multiple displays. The option to configure the display is found in the Catalyst application. Do you have the latest version of that? You can get it from their website.

    I would right down the specs and go to a computer store or a radio shack and ask, usually they have them but they may also refer you to some other store if you ask them, if they cant help you that is. usually the stores that Buy and trad eand selll and have inventorys of used parts, will have alot of adapters on hand like VGA to DVI and what not.
