No visual in my monitor


Hi
usually for these kind of issues., here are some common steps that helps at times.
1. Check the VGA Cable that connects the Monitor to the Tower (CPU).
2. Reseat the Cable once.
3. Remove the VGA Cable & turn on the Monitor Alone. See if you get any display saying "No Signal" or anything similar. If there is some display, then it means that the problem is with the Tower (CPU) & not with the monitor.

Hope this small sugession helps.
Cheers!!! Have a nice day!!!

Unable to remove cover from dell dimension 8400 desktop pc


This Dell Support, and the Service Manual for the Dimension 8400,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim8400/SM/index.htm

In the Service Manual main menu, left-click on - Opening the Computer Cover

1) Computer off, and unplugged from power. (Always unplug the power cable from the surge protector. Then if the power cable needs to be removed from the computer, do so)

2) Remove all cables to the computer

3) Lay the computer on it's Right side.
(As you face the computer, your right side is the computers Right)

4) There is a Release button on the Top of the computer case, and a Release Button on the Bottom of the computer case.
These are located at the Rear of the computer.

The preferred method of opening the computer case, is to press one release button in at a time, and slightly lift up on the side of the computer case, where that release button is located near.

Then go to the other side of the computer case, press this release button in, and lift up on the computer case.

The computer case opens like a clamshell. The computer case is hinged at the front.

Example:
Computer laying on it's right side. Press the Top release button in, and lift up on the computer cover located near the Top.

Now press the release button on the Bottom. Lift the computer case up.

The computer case opens from the back, towards the front, like opening a car hood.

How to soft boot a dell 4600


I used the reset button on my last one whenever ctrl/alt/del failed to soft boot
my computer.

Here is what Dell Chat tells me to do if ctrl/alt/del doesn't work:

Turn off the system from the power button. Remove the plug to the
power supply from the back off the system tower.Then hold the power
button on the tower down for 10 secs ( with the power cord removed).
Reconnect the power cord and then restart the system.This time do a
normal shutdown.

Regards,
Pp

Blank Monitor


I have the same system and card. The problem is the system is trying to run two monitors at once. Use Windows safe mode (F8 during boot) to uninstall any Pny drivers you may have put on. Reboot. Install the pny drivers again. Before rebooting, use the device manager to look at the display drivers. There should be two, an Intel one, and the pny Nvidia one. Disable the intel driver and reboot. Worked for me. Youmay also want to upgrade the power supply. The 3000 has a 225W and the 8400 card wants at least 300W.
