    How do I find a new ?PCI Card for my son's Dell Dimension 2400?

    The spot where you plug in the monitor is broke on my son's Dell Dimension 2400. I was told I need to find a new PCI card!? How do I find one?

    How exactly is it broken? Is it the plug, the bracket, or it just "doesn't work" any more?

    Are you SURE it's not the monitor, but the video card? (Yes, that's the proper name for it).

    Also, keep in mind that this machine is a Pentium 4, which is several years out of date. Parts for it are no longer readily available, as "state of the art" have moved on. It is probably time to buy a new computer, as the cost of such a replacement video card may be more expensive than you think. Also, the video is built-in to the mainboard, and thus can only be "overridden" by an external card.

    Keep in mind that a replacement video card is under $100, but considering you can get a NEW computer for like $300 or so (not a great one, but much better than that old thing) I doubt buying a video card that came out like 5-6 years ago for that old machine is a worthy investment.

    But here's some choices, if you are not deterred. … 1069609642

    Somehow the boys managed to pull the plug from the monitor off the computer and it took the outside of the plug with it. All I have is a few wires sticking out.

    here's a card that will work with the dimension 2400.

    but a pci card will not have wires sticking out of it... the cable connector might be broken... if that is the case then you'll get a new cable here... … 2403463803
