Question about Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop
Every time I push the power button on my computer it won't respond. If (after pushing the power button) I unplug the ethernet cable it will start up immediately. Additionally, it will occasionally turn on if I unplug the power cable, plug it back in, and quickly push the power button.
Is the Ethernet built-in on the system board? I would go to BIOS (hit F2 while booting the PC) and disable the ethernet. then restart the PC. See if it stays on with or without the Ethernet cable plugged in. If it does. The built-in Ethernet circuit is the problem. I would buy a Ethernet adapter ($20).and install it. and leave the built-in ethernet disabled.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
