Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have Dell xps 410 desktop running the Vista os. I recently upgraded my monitor to a Gateway xhd3000 30". My problem is that the speaker on the monitor does not reproduce audio except for the gateway package tour that plays perfectly. Besides that, that there isn't any other audio. Gateway has been useless in trying to resolve this problem for me. Can you help?

    Are you using the optional speaker bar? If not is the stereo patch cable connected to the DVI or VGA jack on the monitor and the headphone jack on your PC?

Want to replace processor intel V//V with a newer dup cpre at least but not sure if possible.


I would look at the motherboard specifications and then look it up online about what can or cannot be used with it. They often have a list of processors that can be used, on the makers website. Some even have forums. You can also look up the processor you want and see if it can be fitted to your motherboard. Intel might even be able to say if you give them enough specifications about your product.

My Dell monitor goes to sleep right after windows xp starts to load and it won't come on after that. my computer is still running but the monitor is a sleep. I have hit f8 and f12 with nothing happening....


Go into safe mode
Under settings, control panel, power options set "turn off monitor to never
reboot

I think this is not a sleep problem but the incorrect monitor settings were set. This will cause the screen to go black when the OS comes up. Boot in safe mode and change the display settings
to 640x480
OR
in safe mode, delete your monitor. When you reboot it will load a default monitor and you should be OK

Dell xps 410 desktop recently upgraded memory formatted then had the taskbar disappear now try to turn pc on boots up but then immiediatly turns off help


Typically when it shuts off right after the POST screen exits,the problem is CPU related.But since you just added RAM,I'd strongly suggest that you put back what was originally there and see if that fixes the problem. You can also try your new sticks 1 at a time and see if any test bad by repeating your shut off problem. It's not all that uncommon to buy a bad stick,especially mail order or on-line.
If this helps,please rate my post?
Good luck,and post back if you need to ask anything else.I'll help with whatever I can.

Have a Dell XPS 410 with 32 OS. Want to upgrade to a 64 OS. Need info


With the 410, you will need much more RAM before having a 64 bit OS becomes useful. I assume that you have the default 2GB. In any case, all you need is to buy a x64 OS and install it.

I have installed 4 GB of RAM but it only shows 3 GB RAM


Any 32bit OS can only read up to 3.5GB of RAM. In order to read additional ram you must have a 64BIT OS.

I recently purchased a Dell XPS 420 Desktop computer, running Vista, from Dell, including a WD 500GB MyBook external hard drive. The power button did not function from the get-go, but I was able to copy...


Unfortunately if there is no driver for Vista, then your out of luck. Since Vista is a widely used OS and getting bigger, then the MyBook manufactures must create a Vista driver soon or they will be in danger of going out of business. Just wait and periodically check the MyBook website for new drivers.
