Having problems with your Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop ?

Video problem on my Dell Dimension 4600 PC, HELP ASAP.

\015 Alright, so one day I went to use my computer. I turned on my computer and the screen showed the Dell bootup screen and the Windows XP loading screen, but it would start blinking white and would go fully black and stay black with no video what so ever. I am sure there is nothing wrong with my monitor because I tested it on another computer in my house. I reformatted my computer and everything was fine, when I installed my video driver and changed the resolution my screen went black again. My computer was running fine but my screen went black and the power button went orange as if my computer was on standby. I was thinking this maybe a video problem but I'm not sure.I have already contacted Dell support but they kept repeating the same things over and over again and never helped. I am planning to reformat my computer again and I wanted to get this problem resolved before it comes up again.Thanks, Jeremy.\015

Answers :

The resolution set by default when you load your graphics driver is outside the range of your monitors capability.
\015\012
\015\012try starting in safe mode then adjust your resolution to 640 by 480 then restart.
\015\012if this works, adjust upwards to 1024 by 768
\015\012then up again till the screen blanks.
\015\012when it does, dont panic, wait 20 seconds and the settings will restore - you then have the optimum settings for your monitor.

\015\012good luck
