Replacement for Dell 8110?
I am ready to replace my Dell 8110. My price range is "around" $500. I use the computer for web browsing, email, and some document handling. Don't need fancy graphics, but would like whatever I get to be faster than the 8110. Huge disk space isn't important either. What would you all recommend in this ... 25 Jun 2010 09:51
Is My Video Card Shot? Or My Monitor?
Dimension 4600 with nvidia FX5200 video card. Lately the display on my ten year old CRT monitor is exhibiting bending of vertical lines towards the center of the screen.

I posted this before but got no reply... what cable do I need to use the eSATA capabilities of my Studio laptop? I believe that it is a 1555.
