Question about Dell Dimension 4600 - Micro tower - 1 x P4 2.8 GHz - RAM 512 MB - HD 1 x 40 GB - CD-RW - LAN EN, Fas... (00000S50405) PC Desktop
If my pc shuts down(power loss, or reboot) it sits on the dell blue logo for hours.then switches to a black screen for another hour or two, then it just comes back to life? is it dying a slow death?
Usually when it sits like that it is checking for problems. Some Dell computers have indicator lights on the back of them labeled ABCD, your model might be one of them, look at those lights and see if there is any orange ones. They should all be green but if there is a solid orange it has detected a problem. You should also open it up and make sure all of your components are set in their place nice and tight and it isn't covered in dust.
