First of all you need to get hold of a genuine antivirus like Norton, Macafee or Quick Heal. If you have imp data in C drive, move them to a diff partion or an external hard disc capable of storing all data thats imp to you. Install the antivirus and if it comes up with a error message that a certain system file is infected then you need to format C drive only, load the OS, install the drivers, take a backup of the drivers and then install your genuine antivirus and update it to the current date. Once installed go for thorough scan of ur PC. After your PC is cleaned up u might need to repair the OS by using that option from your bootable OS CD. Next recopy your data, wherever stored and it will be scanned automatically for any viruses. If your quarantine folder has got lots of entries then submit the same to the antivirus support email for analysis.......sodeep

Dell Dimension 4600C PC Desktop smells burnt


Hi,
Issues like this should be reported to Dell , if your system is still covered by a warranty then they can send a tech to further check it.
Burnt smell can come from several parts of the system like power supply , motherboard , fan , etc. and it can be hazardous if not checked by a professional.
What I suggest is that you call Dell technical Support.
Hope this helps
Thanks
Dennis

Hi,

The drives can be formatted while you install new operating system. Boot the system with an Operating system disk and follow the instructions to format the hard drive and then install the new operating system.

No output to video monitor


I would suggest that you can use PowerColor ATi Radeon 9550 SE 128MB 64bit DDR AGP 8X Low Profile Video Card which works fine with Dell Dimension 4600c. Please write back to me or place a comment if it works for you or if you need any further assistance.

Good Luck.

I have a dell 4600c When i turn it on it powersup but no video


unplug your computer
Open the computer case up, reseat the memory by removing it and putting in one ,and starting the system,and check all power cables are connected. Do this to each memeory module that you have to test your memory.
IF that doesn't work remove , memory,hard drive cd/dvd drive,and printer etc.turn system on and if it does not beep then the motherboard is bad. The motherboad should beep to indicate that their is no memory.No beep equal no response from the motherboard. hope that helps.

When plugged in, my dell 4600c will not start up, and the light on the front of the tower stays yellow. Is this a power supply issue, a hard drive issue or a motherboard issue?


The only real way to test all is to have a 2nd pc. You can even unplug the hard drive from the motherboard just to test the MB and power supply. The bios will still load without a hard drive attached to it.

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.

Computer does not boot


O.k. so I gather your trying to reinstall windows. There's a few possible solutions the first of which is to reseat all connections checking for dust or anything else which might be between the connections. Second is to check your bios (by hitting usually f1,f2,f10,f11, or delete or esc keys) and making sure its set to boot from your cd\dvd rom. Also make sure your cd\dvd isn't scratched or dirty. If those fail try another CD\DVD rom drive to make sure it is the drive that has the issue. Don't be so quick to trash good hardware ;) good luck
