Question about Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop

2 Answers

My dell 4600 Dimensions was working just fine. The system locked up and I had to power down. When I tried to restart the computer powered up but there was no boot sequence, no beeping nothing. The green power light is on, the diagnostic lights are blank and so is my screen. Any suggestions?

If you're familiar on how to open the computer tower's cover, we need to open it.
before opening the cover, make sure all cables are disconnected from the back of the computer. and make sure that you drained the remaining power of the system.
after opening the computer tower's cover, try to locate the cmos battery. (it's a silver coin like battery), remove it from your computer. wait atleast 10 minutes before placing it back. then try to turn on the computer again.


to open the cover, here's the link for the diagram:

How do i open my Dell dimensions 4600 to install


Just lay it over on its right hand side, there a button on the top and the bottom, press these both at once and lift. It will just hinge up and give you plenty of access. When closing just make sure its lined up and it simply clicks back into place. Cheers from Scott

How to soft boot a dell 4600


I used the reset button on my last one whenever ctrl/alt/del failed to soft boot
my computer.

Here is what Dell Chat tells me to do if ctrl/alt/del doesn't work:

Turn off the system from the power button. Remove the plug to the
power supply from the back off the system tower.Then hold the power
button on the tower down for 10 secs ( with the power cord removed).
Reconnect the power cord and then restart the system.This time do a
normal shutdown.

Regards,
Pp

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.
