Dell C521 Where to connect monitor?
This means that you have an external video card (which is not outside the computer). This video card will be plugged into the motherboard. That message is saying that the port on the back of the computer that your monitor is plugged into is the wrong one. You need to look for another port on the back of the computer.
Here is a picture of a VGA port that you should use if you have a VGA cable to connect the monitor (Blue Ends).
Here is a picture of a DVI port that you should use if you have a DVI cable to connect the monitor (White Ends).
So depending on the cable and connections that are available on your computer and your monitor depends on what you have to use. I hope that wasn't too confusing. Let me know if you need more info.

Down load movie how do you know if your codec vid card is correct
The downloads will work but what is not mentioned is the format that you wish to run and so the quality in question.These cards can be used specially for downloading from the web and when it comes to good quality maybe it is worth testing for first hand view to testify the case. You can get help is you visit any accessories store from where the card is to be bought as it can be tested on your PC before any money is spend as trial.

Keyboard failure and diskette drive 0 seek failure
How old is the computer, could it still have warranty? USB ports are often protected with fuses. Some latest stuff has resetable fuses, but many are one-time that do not heal. Did you try the keyboard in the front USB's The thing of biggest concern though is that this happened in coincidence, meaning you may have a motherboard hardware failure. (the reason I mentioned warranty)

C521, get the orange light, fan turns on and it's just steadily orange light
A steady or Amber blinking power button indicates a low voltage problem. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Just to make sure that nothing else is causing the problem, remove any PCI cards like modem, video card, sound card, etc... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cables to CD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.
