Been working on a Dell Dimension 4600. Solved an intermittent shutdown problem by re-seating the CPU with fresh heat sink compound. Video was working after that, but now I can't get video out of it. Tried bypassing the integrated video with an AGP card, but can't even get the boot screen, to get into the BIOS. Anyone got any ideas? Thanks.

I would try replacing the RAM as well as a different video card, maybe a PCI version instead of AGP. Scott.
