Question about Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop
A new motherboad at startup i get this error chassis intruded but no way to shut off
I actually did a little research on this one. I downloaded the User Manual for this board. USUALLY, there is a jumper on the board somewhere that needs to be set in the correct position. I looked through the manual and can't find a jumper for this . I even looked through the bios setting just in case it might be covered there, no luck. If you can't find an undocumented jumper on the board somewhere labeled something like TRPWR, then I would try the reset next. My suggestion would be to use the LCRTC jumper to reset the board. Heres the procedure according to page 1-17 of your manual:
Clear RTC RAM (CLRTC)
This jumper allows you to clear the Real Time Clock (RTC) RAM in CMOS. You can clear the CMOS memory of date, time, and system setup parameters by erasing the CMOS RTC RAM data. The onboard button cell battery powers the RAM data in CMOS, which include system setup information such as system passwords.
1. Turn OFF the computer and unplug the power cord.
2. Move the jumper cap from pins 1-2 (default) to pins 2-3. Keep the cap on pins 2-3 for about 5-10 seconds, then move the cap back to pins 1-2.
3. Plug the power cord and turn ON the computer.
4. Hold down the <Del> key during the boot process and enter BIOS setup to reenter data.
Except when clearing the RTC RAM, never remove the cap on CLRTC jumper default position. Removing the cap will cause system boot failure!If the steps above do not help, remove the onboard battery and move the jumper again to clear the CMOS RTC RAM data. After clearing the CMDS, reinstall the battery.
You do not need to clear the RTC when the system hangs due to overclocking. For system failure due to overclocking, use the CPU Parameter Recall (C.P.R) feature. Shut down and reboot the system so the BIOS can automatically reset parameter settings to default values.

I've read all the responses above, and none help. I have the same MoBo with the same problem. For you others, this jumper for the Chassis Intrusion is right next to the jumper for the CMOS Clearing (CLRTC) pins. Unfortunately there's no way to turn it off in the CMOS eitherr. Mine is set with the two close pins connected, and I'm getting the exact same response, even after resetting the CMOS. I took the jumper off, and same result. I think the mobo is messed up and am going to contact ASUS about it. It seems to be a common problem with this particular board.

remove the CMOS battery and you should be good to go.

There is a setting in the BIOS of some motherboards that detects when the case has been opened. That can be useful in a corporate environment, but pretty much useless for home systems. It usually be F2 or DEL. Press that key. When the BIOS Setup opens, check the bottom of the screen for the navigation keys. Go through each page until you find the Intruder Detection setting. Once you find it, disable it. Save and exit the BIOS setup and the OS will start. The Intruder alert should be gone.
Good luck, and please let me know haow it works out for you!
