Question about Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop
When computer boots. the monitor will light when I depress the monitor power button and hold it but the monitor will display trangently and then black out . I can push and hold a couple of times and get the screen to show briefly and then blank out. There is an error message but I can't read it.
Is the problem the monitor or the computer?
If you can see anything on the monitor than it is connected. I would check in your device manager to make sure there are no yellow exclamation marks next to this hardware indicating a problem.
3 beeps upon boot would indicate a hardware problem such as a bad ram module.
Uninstall modules one at a time and restart if this is the case.
To reset your computer unplug it and remove the small cmos battery, wait 10 min. and re install to.
If there are no problems with Ram, Graphics card, or your monitor you should now see video
Let me know if this helps.

If you have access to another computer try your monitor with the other computer. If your monitor works with the other computer then the problem is with your computer. Also try your computer with a different monitor. If it works then the problem is with your monitor. This process will determine where the problem lies. Is this an LCD or CRT monitor? If a CRT don't open the case. You could get shocked. You can buy a used CRT at Goodwill or a computer re-cycler for $10.00 to $20.00. If it is an expensive LCD get an estimate on repair. Repair may be cheaper than buying a new one. If the problem is with your computer it could be trouble with the graphics card.
