Dimension 4600 does not recognize cd/dvd drives


Open the computer, and check if the cables that go to the CD/DVD drive are connected. If so, try downloading and installing the drivers for the disc drives. I hope you get it fixed!

If you have another computer available go to dells's website and download the drivers for this model to a cd or flash then take it to the 4600 and go to device manager if a network card is available right click and go to properties then update the driver directing it to the cd or flash that you just made....

Dell dimension 3000 doesn't recognize CD drive


Try making sure the cable that connects the motherboard to the CD drive is seated correctly and, if it is, try replacing the cable that connects the motherboard to the CD drive.

Dell 4600 motherboard


That particular Dell uses a power supply with non-standard wiring. The plug is the same size as an ATX plug, but it's wired differently. If you were to replace motherboard & plug in the standard power supply, it would damage the supply, or the motherboard, or both. Also, the front panel plugs (for power & power LED & hard drive indicator) are proprietary as well. Ideally you should replace it with another Dell Dimension 4600 motherboard. I've found replacements for reasonable prices on some of the auction places on the web. I recently replaced a failed motherboard in my Dimension 8300 with one I got from a popular auction site, I think my cost was about $59 plus shipping.

The other option would be to remove the hard drive, video card (if any), and optical drives, and consider a 'barebones' package from various sites such as geeks or newegg.

Internal hd ata


If I am right on this one the 4600 can only take a 250gig hd But I was wondering if you could partion the HD to 236.7 gigs twice so the computer only recognizes the 236.7 gig hd you will see two drives in my computer once you do just format both partitions unless you have another hd and then you will see three drives just do the ones you installed or you may loose your operating system, I don't even know if that will work, but I think it is worth a try seems you already have the 500gig drive, can't hurt to try, I sure hope this help some what.,

Problem with my dell dimension 4600


Does the hdd lite come on? cd lite come on? The blinking lite on the power is an indication the bios or power supply is having trouble. strip the unit of all devices except hd, kb and use the vga built in video. Remove the ram also. restart and see what happens.
