Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop problem

Hollye,
Thanks for your advice (uninstall Norton 360, see if the drive letter comes back, then re-install your Norton). I'll give it a shot, and see what happens.
Regardless of the outcome, I think this is the last year I'll be a slave to Symantec: seems like it gets harder every year to install their new software. And I'm not sure I wan to keeping hitting myself in the head with the same hammer every year.
Any thoughts for software (specifically anti-virus) to replace Norton?
Thanks again.
John

Kaspersky - best rated this year - and has a small footprint on your computer. I personally use Avast 4 Home - it is a free application anti-virus for home users and it has done a great job on my computers (I have eight up and running all the time).

Adding Dell Dimension 4600 to existing wireless network?...


Go to Staples and purchase a Linksys USB wireless-G (only G needed - the new "N" protocol is overkill) adapter (~$60.00). Insert the Linksys CD and follow the instructions. When prompted, plug the USB adapter into the Dell (frt or back) doesn't matter. If his "roomies" have security enabled on their router, you'll need to know the level, password/passphrase, and the network name that they assigned.
Good luck.

Dell dimension 4600 microphone problem


If this is a clean install (formatted drive and reinstalled) then the likelihood of it being a driver issue is greatly reduced. Did you download the drivers from Dell?
Secondly, the fact that the audio works makes me think it is a hardware issue. Since audio and the mic are connected in the device manager, the easiest solution might be to replace the sound with a PCI soundcard. They are fairly inexpensive, and they will generally include the drivers with the disk.

I cannot get my norton to come up to see if its working.


go to add/remove programmes and see if norton is in there, if so it is still installed but may need to repair, click on the right where it says remove and the option to repair or remove will appear, as long as you have the initial installation disc; insert and follow the the instructions.

Please note, after the reinstall/repair, you may have to update Norton, but your copy will still be valid as long as it is upto date

Slave drive into Dell Dimension 5100


Yes it does. It may not have an IDE cable if using SATA hard drive, but it does have a port on the motherboard to plug in the cable you take from your 4600.

Boot drive no longer has a drive letter


I am not a fan of Norton, but, I would uninstall Norton 360, see if the drive letter comes back. If that works you can try to re-install your Norton, and if it happens again, use a different anti-virus.

Dimension 4600 cd/dvd drives not responding


Try uninstalling them in devive manager then rebooting and see 
if they are reinstalled automaticaly as drivers should be in xp already.

Just right click on them and select uninstall.

If that doesnt work then try update drivers and let xp search online for them.

Failing that then try changing the cable thats attatched to the motherboard.

Hope that helps? :)
