Question about Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop
I have a Dell Dimension 4600 desktop PC, When I boot the PC the monitor works you can see the options and boot sequence, but when Windows XP starts loading the monitor goes blank. I can tell the PC is working because if I move the mouse or press a key the hard drive light goes on. I used the on board video and the AGP video card and the results were the same. I also tried different monitors.
I am having the same problem
i just wiped my hard drive reinstalled windows
added more ram and a dvd drive
and then i installed XP Service pack 2 to then after i restarted the computer it goes blank after the windows loading screen???

Did you recently change or install a program that would affect the resolution and card output? Try booting into safe mode by holding the "shift" key during boot. From there right-click on the desktop and hit 'properties'-> 'display properties' -> 'settings' , check your resolution and drop it to 800x600 and then reboot. If everything goes back in normally make sure you have the right windows drivers for your video card. You can also check the driver version and settings while you're in safe mode. Sometimes the windows update drivers can act screwy and I would recommend getting them directly from your card manufacturer.
