Hello

OK, the package comes standard with a 17 inch screen(CRT). So, basically you have 2 choices, you can either buy a replacement CRT screen or you can buy LCD, these are the cheaper options available at this moment.

I would personally go for a LCD screen. the size is a personal choice, but i will not go any bigger that a 23 inch with the graphics card installed.

You will be able to buy it at almost any computer store, and it is cheaper than you think.

Please let me know if this was sufficient, if not, i will try and better explain myself.

Kind regards
Andrea

Extended Desktop on Dell Dimensions 4600


yes your right..leave it set to AUTO BUT ONLY USE THE ATI CHIP SET VIDEO CARDS.


Dell Dimension 4600 We saw great image quality from the 17-inch E171FP analog LCD monitor that accompanied our review system. Text looked sharp and evenly focused at all sizes, while colors appeared lifelike, with evenly saturated tones in our photo test screen, in a DVD movie, and during a session of Return to Castle Wolfenstein. As part of a new case design for Dell's midrange Dimension line, the 4600 has eight USB 2.0 ports, more than on most value (and some power) systems: six on the back and two up front. An audio port for connecting headphones sits next to the front USB ports.
The compact 4600 does not have the tool-less accessibility of its predecessor, the Dimension 4500, although opening the case is easy: Just depress a thick L-shaped lever and lift off the side panel. You'll need a screwdriver to add a PCI card or a hard drive; unlike the 4500 series, which secured expansion cards and drives with innovative quick-release mechanisms, the 4600 series uses screws. Our test configuration had only one available drive bay (a vertically mounted internal bay), and it's a struggle to use it. You must remove four screws (two on the bottom of the case and two inside) and take out the bay holding the existing hard drive along with the empty bay that's crammed up against the front of the case. The two open PCI slots are reasonably easy to access, but to reach the two open memory sockets, you must push aside a snarl of data and power cables.
The Dimension 4600 we tested came with a 2.8-GHz Pentium 4 processor and 512MB of DDR400 memory. It earned a PC WorldBench 4 score of 122, about average for similarly configured systems. The ATI Radeon 9000 Pro graphics card is not a top-of-the-line board, but it yielded solid frame rates in our gaming tests. And it's perfectly fine for playing games at moderate resolution, especially considering that the bundled LCD monitor won't display anything higher than 1280-by-1024 resolution. It has a combination DVI/analog-out port (you use an adapter to hook up an analog monitor), plus S-Video-out and composite-out ports to output video to a TV.


Please leave comment and feeb back.
Thanks

What type of CMOS battery does a Dell Dinmension 4600 use?


Hi friend,
A coin-cell battery maintains computer configuration, date, and time information. The battery can last several years.
If you have to repeatedly reset time and date information after turning on the computer, replace the battery. You can read anything about your dell dimension 4600 PC like....how to change the battery click on LINK

Check your bios settings to make sure your video settings are correct for whatever card you're using. It sounds like you have a conflict between an onboard video card, and an aftermarket card.
