Question about Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop
My system boots up, you get the windows xp screen but then it just goes to a black screen? Any ideas on how to fix this?
Test:: Everything off!! disconnect video monitor from computer. Turn on and see if monitor has a screen. If the screen is any color other then white, off white (NOT green,pink,whatever) the monitor could be damaged.(P.S., if the colors are 'green,pink,whatever' then the color\contrast\brightness controls are misadjusted!!)
2nd if possible, subsitute video card that could be damaged. I have personally changed my desktop icons colors in such a way, that became "invisable" when I went to the desktop. To correct that U must goto CONTROL PANEL when windows is in safe mode (which loads the minimum of drivers)

Take the reinstallation CD and boot from it. Then click R and It will ask what drive you wish to enter. hit the drive number you wish to enter. It will give you options. Once your in type fixboot. just as I have it and it will ask you if you wish to rewrite the boot sector. Hit Y and press enter. Then type exit and it will reboot. If that dosent work you will need to do a repair install. I will walk you through that if we need to.
