Question about Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop

1 Answer

I can't access the icons on my Dell Dimension 4600 desk top.

We haven't been able to use r desktop for month now All that happens afterr I turn it off and on is the screen saver picture comes up...don't know how to get the icons to come back on the screen. NOTHING is on the scrren but the picture. When I power up I have an option to be able to select different options like F12 or F2 I think but I don't know what to do with it once I do and the date that the computer is on if I select on of those options is 2003.

Once the computer boots to the wecome screen or into windows itself press Ctrl, Alt, Del this should bring up "task manager" if you have mouse control click on the "run" tab and type explorer and then click ok, this should load the desktop for you
let me know how you get on because i can help you further, if you still have problems

good luck

How do i open my Dell dimensions 4600 to install


Just lay it over on its right hand side, there a button on the top and the bottom, press these both at once and lift. It will just hinge up and give you plenty of access. When closing just make sure its lined up and it simply clicks back into place. Cheers from Scott

I closed my business last month and my desk top dell dimension was networked with microsoft xp pro and i want to take the hard drive from that somputer and install it in my home computer which is a stand...


HI,
When you remove the harddrive from a computer and plug it into a different machine though of the same model.It would not boot, because the operating system product key is unique to the machine. If you want to use this particular hdd in your home system, make it a secondary harddrive or reload windows on the harddrive again. But doing so , you would remove everything from the harddrive.

NO, I-cons on start up


It sounds like your profile might be corrupted but it doesn't make sense that rebooting will sometimes fix your problem. The next time your icons don't show up, right click on the desktop and select "Refresh" to see if they come up then.

Transfering my outlook and emails folders from my old desk to my new acer desk top


No because outlook is an installed program in your older computer so you can't transfer install programs from one hard drive to the next.

Sorry
