Dell Dimension 4600C will not power up

4600C gives power to mother board ( light is on) . When you hit the power button switch on front if unit, power supply fans turns for a second or two then stops. machine will not power up, and switch light on front blinks yellow.

Unhooked most devices such ad modem board, Ram, Audio connectors, etc, and still no power up. The switch seems to be relayed through a small board behind USB Front ports that hooks to the mother board.

Sounds like the power supply is faulting. If not it is your mother board that has failed.

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.

Yellow light on dell dimension 2400 and it won't work


HI, this is signaling an issue that is concerning the power unit(power supply). this can also be an issue with the mother board as well. you can confirm the actual issue by, inspecting the cooling fan that is on the power unit. if the power unit fan is not running when you push the power button to power up the PC, replace the power supply. if the fan is running, replace the mother board.

I have a dimension 4600c. installed a new power


The power supplies have extra connectors which are not used.

Try doing a system restore to an earlier date when your computer was working ok.

Restart your computer and hit F8 while it is booting. When the menu comes up, select "Last Known Configuration"

This will bring it back to a time when it was working.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Dimension 2400 can not power on


If you have no power by pressing the front power button and you have verified that the black connector coming from the power switch on the front is connected properly to the motherboard, then make sure that both connectors from the power supply are connected properly, the main connector and the p4 connector. Reseat both of the connectors to be sure.


If you still have no power and still have the light coming up on the motherboard then I think the motherboard may be bad cause that means something is shorting out the motherboard and not allowing power to go thru it properly.

Dimension 8200 will not turn on


Try a new power button. Also does the machine power light turn on at the front of the machine? if so check that the CPU is seated correctly as if it has come out of position then the machine doesn't boot. I would like to think power switch though.

Thanks J
