Dell Dimension 4600.
Windows XP Home Edition
Working on this for a friend
Turns on, no beep codes. Tried different monitor. No luck
Thought about installing PCI Graphic card.
Am I wasting my time doing this?
Just need to get some files off hard drive.
Could I set it up as a slave drive to recover the data?
I have an external hard drive case I can mount it in.
Thanks

Okay, if you tried a different display that's a good first troubleshooting step. The second would be to check (and replace) the cables to the display.

Third option would be to replace the video card (just buy one from a retailer who accepts returns).

To answer your other question yes, you can slave the drive and copy the data.

Thanks for the reply.
By cables, the one from tower to monitor or internal cable?

Whatever connects the display to the video card. I guess you can also make sure the video card is properly seated.
