Apologies if this is in the incorrect section, I'm not sure where to post it.
Per title, I have a somewhat dead Dell Dimension 2400 that looks as though it is either not booting or there is a graphics/driver issue. The machine is ancient. It was working fine but has not been turned on for about four years; now exhibiting the above issues.
I am not getting any signal to the monitor. I have replaced the VGA cable, no change. I do not have the original Dell recovery discs; I have tried to retrieve this from Dell's site but the service tag is not recognised.
I had intended to make a bootable USB recovery disc and fix it that way. What are my options? Is there a workaround for installing a fresh install of everything without using the Dell recovery tool?
Note: There is a windows XP sticker on the machine with the serial code etc available. Also, the power indicator on the front of the machine lights up, all seems to power up ok.
