My Dell Dimension 4600 needs to be reformatted. The Dell reinstallation OS disk boots up and gets as far as "Windows Setup....press Enter to continue". Then it freezes. I have tried using both the original...


Before you go ahead and try reformatting the system , Please disconnect everything from the system (Except Mouse, Keyboard and screen)
and then try to use the disc to reformat the system. and if it still hangs up or freezes up that clearly seems to be a hard drive failure.

Hope this help.
Cheers!!!!

Dimension 4600 won't reset to factory settings


These model dells came with a recovery cd rather than a partition. You will need to call dell and have them send you a recovery cd and then use that disc to restore your computer to factory defaults.

Dell Dimension 4600 creative sound blaster card


It sounds like you may have broken your sound card. I had the same problem when I tried to digitise my old 4-track recordings. 
I tried the broken card in another PC, found that it was not working, so I went out and bought a new sound card.

Dimension 4600 won't reset to factory settings


First, if you have any data on the machine you want, I'd back it up to a USB flash/thumb drive.
Then, assuming you purchased the machine new, you should have the maroon/silver "Recovery Disk". Pop that in the CD, and restart the machine. Press F12 to select BOOT OPTIONS. Select CD Hit Enter. This should start the Dell Recovery process. If you do not have the Rec. CD, contact Dell. They should be able to provide you the org. software - for a small fee of course.

Factory Reset


1 Turn on the computer.
2 When the Dell splash screen appears during the computer startup process, press and hold <Ctrl> and then press <F11>. Then, release both keys at the same time.
3 In the Dell PC Restore by Symantec window, click Restore. Alternatively, press <Tab> to highlight Restore, and then press <Enter>.
4 When a warning message appears stating that all data will be lost, click Confirm, or press <Tab> to highlight Confirm and then press <Enter>.

The
Progress window will appear. Once the restore process starts, Dell PC Restore by Symantec usually takes about 8 to 10 minutes to finish.

When the restore process is complete, the following message will appear:
The system recovery process was successful.
5 Click Finish or press <Tab> to highlight Finish and then press <Enter> to restart the computer.
The software is now installed as it was when the computer was first received
