THE PRODUCT IS NOT CORRECT; IT'S WHAT MATCHES THE CLOSEST.
Three years ago I purchaced a Gateway Desktop computer. I don't know the model (sorry, it's not the computer I'm currently on) but it has an area for composite (red/white/yellow) cables and I don't know how to use them. I've tried hooking up my XBOX 360 to them to play it through my monitor but no dice. What are these meant for then? I've never used them. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Composite connection on Gateway Desktop
They are Video and Audio for connecting device together
Yellow = Video
White = Audio - left channel
Red = Audio - right channel
the connectors on a Desktop PC from the graphics card will be an OUTPUT-possibly labelled TV output, so what ever is displayed on your monitor can also be sent to a TV or recorder etc
The connectors on the Xbox are also OUTPUT and designed for connection to a device which has the same connection but for INPUT
Your monitor may have composite inputs and allow you to switch to those
Some TVs will have those connections as inputs and you would select one of the AV options to see the signal, often a separate button to choose AV input /HDMI / PC etc
Some DVD and Video also have these as an INPUT as video cameras often have that type of connection - to record the signal

Depending on the type of TV, the longevity can be affected significantly. If your TV is a plasma model, they run very hot and the plasma only lasts about 4-5 years. That is why plasma is no longer being made by any of the major manufacturers. It was state of the art when it came out, but now LED TVs are the standard. They use much less energy, run a lot cooler and last much longer.
Longevity really depends upon the technology used, not always who made it.
Here is a link to reinstall the correct bios firmware http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/DriverDetails/DriverFileFormats/Product/vostro-200?DriverId=R199863&FileId=2731123001&urlProductCode=False
Then choose the correct OS from the drop down and reinstall your sound card drivers. let me know how that goes!
