Solution Where to Find Additional Information

If your computer has the required graphics card to support dualmonitor setup, then look in your shipping box for a Y-cable. The

Y-cable has a single connector on one end (plug this connector into the back panel) and branches into two connectors (plug these connectors into the monitor cables).

See "Setting Up Your Computer" on page 9 for information on

connecting dual monitors to your computer.

If your graphics card has a DVI connector but your monitor has a

VGA connector, then you need to use an adapter. An adapter should be included in the shipping box.

See "Setting Up Your Computer" on page 9 for information on

connecting monitors to your computer. For more information, contact Dell. For information on contacting Dell, see your User’s

Guide .

If you have a sound card installed, connect the speakers to the

connectors on the card. See "Setting

Up Your Computer" on page 9.

See the documentation that came with your speakers for more information.

Your computer has eight USB connectors (two on the front, one internal, and five on the back) and an
