Dell 410XPs + Dell 3007WFP monitor issues

When I plug my Dell 3007WFP 30" monitor monitor into back of Dell 410xps computer via a dual DVI cable, the monitor power light turns orange.
I have tried with another DVI dual cable and another 30" dell monitor and same issue.
I even had the nvidea 7900gs graphics card replace d twice twice and same issues.
If I attach a vga - dvi adapter to computer, my VGA monitor works just fine.

I do not see the DELL logo with the 30" monitors.
Where am I going wrong in the settings ?

Thanks
Vinod

The 7900GS does have Dual-Link DVI connectors, but many of them did not support full Dual-Link capability that is required for the 30" display.

Your Video Cards may not support the display, I would try them elsewhere or replace it with a more recent 8000 or 9000 series card

Vinod,
That's quite strange as during system startup you should see the Dell POST logo as at that point the card is only running at VGA, and the monitor will support display at this resolution. If you connect with a normal single DVI cable the monitor should display at 1280x800 also.
Have you tried this? Also have you had this monitor working on another computer at all? What happens if you power up the 3007 with no video cable connected? It should cycle through the pixel test screens. If you are not getting that, and you are not getting the pre POST logo during powerup i suspect that it is a screen failure.

Bought a new computer and it just has a usb type port how do I connect the moniter


Depends on the monitor does the monitor have a hdmi input port ?
The usb type port you describe - I suspect is a HDMI port.
The monitor I am guessing has a vga only input
as you did not provide us with the make and model numbers of any of your devices involved I can only guess on the situation ?

You might be able to go to a computer retailer and ask them about a HDMI to VGA adapter for your monitor if this is the situation you have

Can you upgrade cpu in dell 15 i5559-4682slv to i7 ?


It is almost impossible to upgrade proprietary makes like Dell and HP. The are big enough to have motherboards made for them manufactured on price point. This means that they are not built with upgrade in mind. Also the cases are made to fit their motherboard and theirs only.

Go to a computer builder and get a good case, buy a good quality motherboard and equip it with what you can afford. In two years you can upgrade as processors have moved on. Two years after that, you can swap out the motherboard, processor and memory.

How to enable bluetooth


Your computer has to have a bluetooth radio. You can check
Control Panel > System and Security > Device Manager
Do you see a Bluetooth Radio listed?

If not, you don't have BlueTooth on your computer so you will have to add a BlueTooth device by plugging one into a USB port.

If you have a BlueTooth radio, go to Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Device and Printers > Add a Bluetooth Device

This option is used to connect a blue tooth device (e.g. bluetooth headphons) to your laptop through your bluetooth radio.

See this Windows web page for more information.
Set up Bluetooth enabled device

I will respond to any additional questions you have.
