Pulsating hard drive on startup and off

Dell Dimension 4600 OS=XP Pro
When powering up the computer, the hard drive pulsates and the LEDs flash. I have to hold the start button in, and it will finally start.
When shuting down the computer, sometimes the hard drive will pulsate, and again I have to hold in the start button to shut down.
Any ideas?

To eliminate a software problem, I installed another hard drive with the same operating system, and the problem still existed.
I also flashed the BIOS with no results.


The most logical conclusion is that the problem lays with power supply.
A new power supply was ordered today.

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.

Thanks for using Fixya

Dell Dimension XPS PC Desktop won't boot


Hi,

Vista is available in 32 and 64 bit os.
if your system ran xp which was most likely 32 bit. And you have installed a 64 bit version os.
this will be your problem, also Vista requires more system RAM/Memory to run it.
If you get 1 beep at startup, it states the system is ok.
Alternatives are device drivers incompatability.
Check M$ website, regarding vistas minimum system requirements.

Dell Dimension 4600 stalls during boot


Turn the computer's power on.
Immediately put the original Windows XP CD into the drive.
Tell the computer to boot from the CD (not from the hard-drive).
Does it start to boot from the CD?
Do you get as far as the "repair/install" boot-screen?
If so, your basic hardware is OK, and turn your computer off,
rather than choosing "repair" or "install".
Then, it's probably either the hard-drive that is failing,
or the installed copy of Windows XP is fuddle-duddle-ucked up, so that it cannot finish the "Windows startup" processing.

Computer not reading free agent pro


I suspect an IRQ conflict in this case. where one day things are workig fine and the next day they are not because the IRQ conflict has made it's self known.

if no IRQ conflict is present , I would suspect a dead drive , time to replace the ole girl. these things happen , touchy equipment , buggy driver sets , you name it , things will however improve.


and remember if it's not hebrew , it's a lie :-> shalom

Slave drive into Dell Dimension 5100


Yes it does. It may not have an IDE cable if using SATA hard drive, but it does have a port on the motherboard to plug in the cable you take from your 4600.
