Dell 4500 with 18" Dell Monitor XP Home
Hello, All of a sudden my pointer was not visable- after reboot the monitor keeps kicking into standby mode.
I hooked the monitor to my old pc and it works fine.
Could this be my video card? Also I have been hearing fan noise lately Can this have anything to do with it?
Are their any viruses that could cause this problem? Thanks from New Orleans...
