dimension e521 and windows 10

Hi, Have 2 identical Dell Dimension desktops E series. Rather, it duplicates the video source onto two screens.

This is at my job so I have no idea where they got this cable or how much it costs This conversation is currently closed to new comments. I will get back to this thread when I have tried the next step.

Tell us about your experience with our site. Then monitor was just a black screen.

I too bought an E and was told you could not upgrade the video since it was integrated. The cable has two white ends,and I just realized I was calling it the wrong thing.


Let’s see the hardware specifications before deciding where to go and no, googling ‘Dell Dimension E’ is not enough. Also, will DVI splitter help? Again thanks, and goodnight.


I tried ‘blindly’ typing into the terminal but it never accepted my cmds. Whackywheels Replied on April 24, Or unless you know how to navigate thru the root shell prompt and I do not.

From what I have read it is not coming out of power saver mode. In order to do that you’ll need to edit the line that boot Ubuntu, in Grub and add the nomodeset parameter.

The DVI splitter you are speaking of is probably not one of those simplified cables, but rather something like the Matrox TripleHead2Go or similar technology. Frustrated Mom who is really hoping that this can be solved soon. If it has the original graphics then it’s a drivers issue indeed but all you need to do is install the correct proprietary nvidia driver version for your card.

You can use your current monitor on it as long as it is VGA compatible. Yea, booted up and I had graphics. How about a GS?

Hi Yes you can use onboard and pci express cards at the same time. Thank you for ALL for your help. Then you could use even 3 monitors with extended desktop.

It is a DVI cable. You can follow the question or vote as helpful, but you cannot reply to this thread. Also, using a splitter does not create a unique screen.

The time now is I have the same question If you must use vldeo computer as designed you would need a low-powered OS such as Puppy Linux. For more information Please refer to the links below:
