Question about Dell Dimension 4700 PC Desktop
I obtained a dell dim. 4700 minus the hard drive..I bought a new 500 GB HD and installed it to replace the missing one thinking I could reload the OS...When I power it up now, the green power light comes on, the green working light comes on, and the CDROM lights flash alternately but do not respond....What has happened? The screen remains black the entire time. (nothing)..Is the CPU bad? Please help..A visual inspection of the motherboard looks good and clean....
Check the BIOS and make sure it's doesn't still have to old HD in there. Are you seeing anything on the screen?
Hit F12 to get into system setup and find out what HD options you have.
