Having problems with your Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop ?
When booting up to windows...the icons do not appear and all I see is the cursor..do you have any solutions?
That normally means Windows is dead. Insert your Windows CD, and if the CD boots, try to do a Recovery. You may have to re-install Windows. If you do, don't do a re-format, just replace Windows with a new copy. That way, all your documents and files will still be there.
