I sure that Dell made a mistake to supply the monitor with DVI Single Link ...

It looks like it's the SATA Flex cable used in the MacBook Pro that has died. I have the same laptop and it's died as well. You can either go to the Apple Store to have it replaced for a nominal fee, or do it yourself by ordering this part.

Actually you will need to download Bootcamp from Apple as all the drivers are there. I've never tried to download it on a PC but it should be possible to open the BootCamp.app package on a PC (it's just a folder) and get to the drivers that way. But if you have Windows 8.1 bootable install media you should be able to boot your Mac from it, format and select ...

You could use Migration Assistant to move from the old to the newer, although OS X seems to have its own ideas about which OS are acceptable. Time Machine is also a good way to transfer files to a new installation. If these work this is probably the easiest.

I'm sorry to hear about your wife's MacBook Air; it's always frustrating when accidents like that happen. According to this step in iFixit's teardown of the 2013 Air, it appears that the trackpad is attached to the motherboard, instead of the keyboard: Again, best of luck with the repair of the MacBook. If she can do without for a little while, waiting ...

Yes and no. While the trackpad is connected to the keyboard, the trackpad and keyboard are separate parts and the trackpad may be fine, depending on where the water spilt and how quickly is was dried out. If you have some experience with repairing electronics, get a 2013 MacBook Air keyboard assembly. It should include the keyboard and the aluminum panel ...

I had this problem as well, It was a terrible shock because it happened on my brother's computer after telling him about this trick. His display got stuck upside down and the error message "could not open display preferences pane" kept showing up. To fix it I reset his PRAM which seemed to do nothing, then I shut down the computer, waited a while, and booted ...
