  1. I've got a Dell Dimension 4550 desktop that I've had for 7 years. It has worked fine but lately, I've been having problems related to the monitor and I hope someone can offer some advice (besides buying a new system).

    For some reason, my monitor goes into "sleep" mode shortly after booting up my system. The only way to avoid this problem is to go into safe mode but I can't access the internet in safe mode. Any ideas on how to resolve this problem? I've already tried restoring my system (several times) to a previous date (going back several months) but to no avail.

    Any ideas on how to resolve this problem?

    Maybe it is too old to work any more
