Unplug the computer. Remove the side cover. This is probably held on by two or three philips head screws on the back left edge of the unit. On the motherboard, look for a flat, round, shiny piece that resembles a nickel. This is the battery. There should be a small metal tab that holds it in place. Push on the tab and the battery should pop out. Note the orientation of the battery and replace with a new one in the same position.

Dell 4600 clock battery location


The Clock/time is kept with the aid of a silver 3Volt button cell. This cell also provides power to the BIOS/CMOS. It is found on the computer mainboard.

If you do replace it, be sure to enter the BIOS to set the time and other settings that may need ot be set.
The button to push to enter the BIOS is usually delete or F12.

Keep Well!

I need printed instructions on how to install Dell Dimension 4600c power supply. I ordered the part but it came with no instructions.


Power Supply Removing the Power Supply caution.gif CAUTION: Before you begin any of the procedures in this section, follow the safety instructions in your Owner's Manual or Product Information Guide. caution.gif CAUTION: To guard against electrical shock, always unplug your computer from the electrical outlet before removing the cover.
  1. Follow the procedures in "Before You Begin."

  2. Remove the fan assembly.

  3. Disconnect the AC power cable from the AC power connector on the back of the power supply.

  4. Unplug the DC power cables from the drives and system board.

  5. Remove the four screws that secure the power supply to the back of the computer.
OR

As you add more devices to your Dell Dimension 4600 desktop, it is important to ensure there is enough electrical power being fed to the components. While the 250 Watt power supply that comes standard with the Dell Dimension 4600 is acceptable at stock settings, it is almost certainly not capable of providing power for many more devices such as graphics cardsmag-glass_10x10.gif and multiple hard drives. If you add such devices, you also should upgrade your Dell Dimension 4600 power supply.

Adding Dell Dimension 4600 to existing wireless network?...


Go to Staples and purchase a Linksys USB wireless-G (only G needed - the new "N" protocol is overkill) adapter (~$60.00). Insert the Linksys CD and follow the instructions. When prompted, plug the USB adapter into the Dell (frt or back) doesn't matter. If his "roomies" have security enabled on their router, you'll need to know the level, password/passphrase, and the network name that they assigned.
Good luck.
