My dell dimension 4600 asks me if I want to open in windows xp upon bootup. Windows xp is the only operating system on my computer. I suspect I have to change a setting somewhere but do not know where....


Hi! You can try this step: Right click on my computer->properties->advance tab, click startup and recovery settings->under startup and recovery settings there is a edit box, click edit then you will see a text doc that refers to the operating system installed.

-you need to delete ONLY the second one that is listed there.highlight the second one and then delete it.save the file and then check if this works
-if this works then you dont have to choose 2 operating system again during startup.

Trying to install entir dell 4600 system I had a virus and I don't know how to reinstall it


DELL USUALLY HAS A RECOVERY PARTITION. TO GET TO IT YOU MUST PRESS THE " F11 " KEY MANY TIMES WHILE IT BOOTING UP. THIS SHOULD GET YOU TO THE SYSTEM RECOVERY OPTION. JUST FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS. DELL ALSO HAS SUPPLIED RECOVERY CDs INSTEAD OF THE RECOVERY PARTITION. IF YOU DIDN'T GET THE CDS THEN YOU PROBABLY HAVE THE PARTITION.

Trying to reformat my DELL Dimension 4600-the wizard stops the process because SP 3 was added later--any ideas besides the old format c: command? nothing on the DELL site that I could find. Thank you in...


Go into BIOS Setup, (Dell's term is System Setup), and in Boot Options set the first boot device, to CDROM. Don't forget to Save Changes.

(After you see the Dell logo, {AND I mean IMMEDIATELY AFTER}, press the F2 key to enter System Setup)

Cannot reformat Dimensions 4600 I tried F11 but it won't let me restart


If you are going to reinstall the operating system on the dimension 4600, while it is on insert the Operating System CD inside the drive then press and hold the power button to turn off system. When you turn it back on press the F12 Key once on the Dell Logo and that will take you to the Boot Menu. Choose the one that says IDE or Onboard CD / DVD Drive then press enter. If it asks you to press any key to boot to the CD then press enter again. Then just follow the normal prompts for reinstalling the operating system.

Dimension 4600 won't reset to factory settings


First, if you have any data on the machine you want, I'd back it up to a USB flash/thumb drive.
Then, assuming you purchased the machine new, you should have the maroon/silver "Recovery Disk". Pop that in the CD, and restart the machine. Press F12 to select BOOT OPTIONS. Select CD Hit Enter. This should start the Dell Recovery process. If you do not have the Rec. CD, contact Dell. They should be able to provide you the org. software - for a small fee of course.

Windows will not boot up


Hello.

If you got a Windows CD try the following...

Reboot the computer and enter bios by..
When the blue DELL™ logo appears, press <F2> immediately
You might have to try this a few times since you have to be really quick,

In system setup (bios)
Set CD Drive as first device in the boot sequence. Press F10 then chose "Y" to save.

Reboot.

When asked if you want to start on CD just press any key.

The menu on your cd should have a repair option.

Hope this helps.

Regards...

Hard Drive


Put the CD in your CD Drive and shut off the pc. Then start it up again making sure the CD is still in the drive. You will then be asked if you want to boot from CD. Press any key to confirm this (it might skip asking you if it detects that your hard-drive is already blank) Then you want to let it run its install routine. Im not sure what options it will give you but the ones you are looking for is FULL install.
