Dell C521 Where to connect monitor?

\015 I recently bought a new monitor for my DELL C521. When I first plugged it in it was fine but when I rebooted Igot this message.\015\012\015\012''This computer has an add-in graphics card, but the monitor cable is plugged into the integrated video connector.To attach the monitor cable to the add-in graphics card:1. Shut down the computer2. Plug the monitor cable into the add-in graphics card connector.You may require a video adapter or a video adapter cable.3. Turn on the computer''\015\012\015\012The problem is that there is no where else to plug in the monitor cable.\015

Answers :

This means that you have an external video card (which is not outside the computer). This video card will be plugged into the motherboard. That message is saying that the port on the back of the computer that your monitor is plugged into is the wrong one. You need to look for another port on the back of the computer.

Here is a picture of a VGA port that you should use if you have a VGA cable to connect the monitor (Blue Ends).

Here is a picture of a DVI port that you should use if you have a DVI cable to connect the monitor (White Ends).

So depending on the cable and connections that are available on your computer and your monitor depends on what you have to use. I hope that wasn't too confusing. Let me know if you need more info.
