I need to find a (one solid) cable/cord that goes from DVI to RCA3 AV (red yellow white) OUT so I can hook my Dell XPS 410 to my RCA brand TV. I have 3 sets of red yellow and white plugs (female) built in. There is no RGB plugs at all.

Re: DVI to RCA3 AV OUT
DVI to Composite Video (yellow) adapters are available in many online stores for mail order. You will need to get a separate mini-RCA jack to stereo RCA adapter to hook the audio output from the computer to the stereo audio (red and white) connections of the cable.
Search google for DVI to composite video adapter, and the mini-RCA adapter can be found at most home entertainment or electronics stores (Best Buy, Circuit City, etc)

That's a very strange problem. The typical problem with a monitor is that there is no signal, and so the screen goes into a "screen saver" mode. It sounds like it is behaving as if it were a TV. Does your computer have a TV tuner on it? Some models have this option. I'm just wondering if you might have accidentally changed something. Was it working fine up until just now?
Your Monitor is not connected properly http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/setup/wireless.mspx
Connecting Your Monitor 1. Turn off your computer and unplug the power cord. 2. Connect the white connector end of the DVI cable attached on the monitor to the connectors on the computer. 3. Connect the USB cable that was included with your monitor to the computer and the upstream USB connector on the monitor. Once this cable is connected to the computer and the monitor, you can use the USB downstream on the monitor. 4. Connect any USB devices. 5. Connect the power cord. 6. Turn on your monitor and computer. If you do not see an image, see Troubleshooting Your Monitor.
NOTE: The Monitor will display full screen in White, Black, Red, Green and Blue color rolling pattern on screen if the DVI cable is not connected. This self test pattern will be displayed continually when Monitor detects that DVI cable from Monitor to PC is not connected.
* Check connection integrity at both ends of the video cable. * Ensure the monitor and computer are plugged in to a working electrical outlet. * Ensure power button is depressed fully.
