Dell Dimension 4600

I have a dell dimension 4600 and I have been having problems with my 15" LCD screen. First it would flicker and then you would have to hit the screen really hard to get a picture back. We thought the problem went away but came back with all the pother screens. Dell replaced the screen 3 times. Finaly they stopped replacing the screens. I have a CRT monitor hooked up to it now and works great. Thinking it was the screen again I went and bought an Acer 20" LCD and hooked it up. It Worked great for 2 days then the picture went blank but the power light stays on. I gave my friend the broken dell monitor to try on his computer and it worked just fine. Is it the graphics card, the motherboard or something else?

Slave drive into Dell Dimension 5100

Yes it does. It may not have an IDE cable if using SATA hard drive, but it does have a port on the motherboard to plug in the cable you take from your 4600.
