Over time a computer may experience a debilitating virus infection, system error or hard drive error rendering it unusable. Perform a restore on a Dell Dimension 4600 to resolve any problems the computer may encounter. The restoration will return the computer to the original operating condition, but all the software and other data stored to the hard drive will be erased during the process.

Connect the external hard drive to the computer and wait for its folder to appear on the desktop. Copy and paste any valuable data, documents, photos or other files you want to save to the external hard drive's folder. Right-click the folder and choose "Eject" once the backup is complete. Remove any hardware devices, such as printers, MP3 players, scanners and PDAs, from the computer as they can be damaged during the restoration. Restart the computer and press the "F8" key when the Dell logo appears on the screen during the startup process. The "Advanced Boot Options Menu" will appear. Use the arrow keys to select the "Repair Your Computer" option and press "Enter." Select the language settings for your computer and click "Next." Log in with an administrator account and click "OK." Click on the "Dell Factory Image Restore" icon. Click "Next" in the window that appears and click the box for "Yes, reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory condition." Click "Next" to begin the restore process. The utility will return the computer to the factory settings and reformat the hard drive. Click "Finish" to restart the computer with the new operating condition in place.

Trying using a boot disk to see if your data is still there. I've seen this happen before and the virus had infected several of the files required for the computer to boot. When the virus scanner cleaned the files and the computer rebooted, the system files were gone.
What ever you do, do not reformat the hard drive or use a system restore disk until you are sure that you have no data that is recoverable on the drive.

I need the restore cd for dell dimension 4600


if your restore partition is still intact, try holding down Crtl+F11 on startup.

This will access the hidden restore partiton.

Alas, if you just replaced the hard drive or reformatted it. You will need the restore disk or the version of windows that is on the COA sticker with the valid windows key.

Before you go ahead and try reformatting the system , Please disconnect everything from the system (Except Mouse, Keyboard and screen)
and then try to use the disc to reformat the system. and if it still hangs up or freezes up that clearly seems to be a hard drive failure.

Hope this help.
Cheers!!!!
