I bought a new Acer 17 " Flat monitor to use with a 5 year old Dell Dimension 8250 Intel Pentium 4 Processor and when I hook it up all I get is a blank screen. I have a 64MB GeForce4 MX Graphics Card with TV-Out...I was told it should work if I have the same blue VGA video cable and I did but nothing comes up on the screen. I can hear Windows XP trying to open up on the speakers bu the screen doesn't show anything except white? What is my problem?

Your existing CPU will not work with that motherboard. The AM2+/AM2 processor slot is for AMD processors only. For this motherboard, you will need one of the following processors: Phenom FX / Phenom / Athlon 64 FX / Athlon 64 X2
First, what kind of upgrade do you expect to do? Many motherboards will not accept a different processor. That being said, you can use a small flat tipped screwdriver between the heat sink and processor. There isn't much room, but very gentle prying all around should do it. You may heat it up a bit with a blow dryer to soften the heat sink compound that hardens with age. You can't harm it with the temperature of the air from a hair dryer.
the resolution is incorrect for that new monitor , it does not support it, attach the old monitor reduce the display resolution and then hook in the new monitor, up the resolution until it fails again and do nothing it will reset to the last good display resolution and you can leave it there. hope this helps
