Question about Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Hi my name is Angelita. I have a question regarding my Dell computer. For over the past couple months it has been doing this thing where the screen will turn black for about 2 seconds and then return to it's normal state. However it is now beginning to do it so oftern that it will not allow for me to do anything because a little before it turns black it will quit allowing me to do what I was doing, such as: typing paperwork, checking my email, etc. Please help me. Thank you for your time.

Take your monitor and your computer to a qualified technician,
who can check that the monitor is OK, and can check that the video-card inside the computer is OK.

I have a dell inspiron 531s. it is freezing off and on. it would work well for a day then it would just freeze, not responding to the mouse or keyboard. i have reformated the hard drive change the memory...

I had the same issue. I upgraded to Windows 7 and things did work allot better but the hanging still occured. I ran system mechanic and found there was a drive problem. This was repared by the program.
The problem occured again last night and the system will not boot past the dell splash screen. I am thinking it might be the motherboard that is a fault. Mine is out of its 12 month warranty, so no way to get Dell to investigate further. Also check the systems logs after the hang happens and see if there was something logged that caused the hang.

I hope this helps?

Monitor (Dell 1701FP) flickers, flashes and goes black

Just to check - when the screen is black- can you see any image- in its un-illuminated state. To do this look sideways along the screen not straight at it. I suspect this is an inverter problem. Whether or not this is repairable I know not- depending on your local repair facilities Perhaps DELL can suggest a local agent.
