Hi Keith
Windows 7 doesn't seem to have the drivers for your video card.Go to Start-Control Panel-Device Manager.Look at the Display Adapter category and see if there is a red x.Click on the little triangle to expand the category and see if it lists any type of device there.If so,double click that and see what it's saying about drivers.If the option is available,tell Windows to update the driver automatically and allow it to access the internet to look.
Now,a couple questions.Are you using the on-board video?If not,what brand and model of video board did you add?
Last,look on the case for a sticker called a Service Tag,and lacking that,Post back with your full Model # & Serial # so I can try and find out what video chipset was installed by Dell.
If the auto-check for drivers works,that should fix it.If not,let me know about the other questions.
And if this helps,would you rate my post?
Let me know.
Bob

It will be best to load the computer with Win-7; rather than loading Win XP; as update support to Win XP is not in air since 5 months. Microsoft have stopped the update.
Load it with Windows-7 Ultimate. It is the best O/S.

Dimension 4600 no display turn on. HD spins lights lite and can turn off no bios screen display


Change the VGA cable from the monitor, first but sounds like it's the video card that's failed. I would check the monitor with another computer to make sure it's not that.

According to Microsoft, Sound Blaster 1040 fully compatible with Win 7 and does not need any extra software. Use Windows 7 Update and check for updates, under optional as well.
