You can replace the battery, but with care.
Arrage the proper batter first then,
Open the box, make enough room.

Then Find the battery socket (XBT9E1)

You can see and over-view here (Scematic) (Socket at Right hand Side)

And real board here (On a lil bottom left)

Take out the batter with a pin, carefully insert thenew battery (Wait for 1 min)

Then Turn you PC on.
Note, that your BIOS settings ( Time,APM..etc) will move to default within 8-10 seconds of unattachment time (differnt for differnt machines)

Power off. Open the case by pressing the buttons on the top and bottom of the computer. Make sure you ground youself to avoid any static from your hand doing any damage to the memory chips etc. The battery is like a small flat watch battery and should be easily visible. Replacement is simple - take note of the battery type, get a new one of the same type, unclip the old one and replace.

SOURCE: replacing the fan or fans in a dell 4600 with the quietest fan I

Identify each of the fans in the chassis in terms of its square size and thickness, is it 3 wire or 2 wire, confirm its voltage as 12 volt and what current it draws if it tells you on the label. Unfortunately due to the nature of Dell chassis design it its normally difficult to fit anything other than the standard size in the space provided and they mostly use either 80mm or 120mm fans. You than need to look for replacements with the highest airflow in cubic feet per minute (cfm) versus noise (dB). Zalman are normally credited with producing the quietest fans and if you can replace a 80mm with a 120 then you could use a separate speed controller to reduce the speed of the 120mm fan to a slower revs as they by default have a higher cfm (bigger area). This is where the current comes in as 120mm fans generally draw a higher current at full speed but you can normally get away with 1.5 times the stock fan current.

Beyond this requires some serious case mods but the most critical is the CPU fan. If the PSU is the problem them some Dell cases will allow you to fit standard models with bigger temperature controlled fans.

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!

PC Battery voor een Dell 4600


When I boot I get an error message - and I think the battery is to be replaced, what and how should I do?

Thanks in advance for the answer! 1. Turn the computer off. 2. Disconnect the power-cable. 3. Remove the side-panel. 4. Look on the motherboard for a silver-coloured circular piece, about 2 cm. in diameter. 5. Read the lettering on the top of the piece. 6. VERY CAREFULLY remove the piece, by lifting from one edge. 7. Take it to a computer-store, and buy a replacement. 8. Check the lettering on the top of the new piece. 9. Insert the new piece, with the lettering on the new piece matching the lettering in #5, above. 10. Replace the side-panel. 11. Reconnect the power-cable. 12. Start your computer. 13. Immediately, press DEL to enter BIOS-setup. Set the date & time. 14. Save/Exit from BIOS-setup. 15. Reboot.

Internal battery needs to be replaced on my Dell Dimension 4600.


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.

Maybe your CMOS battery is low on power. Have it replaced with a new/good one.
Hope it works for you.
