If you see the Dell BIOS flash screen, then the motherboard is likely working. Try the drive in another computer to test its integrity.

Hi schonfeld5,

if you have an extra harddisk try to connect it to your motherboard either by ide or by sata if the hd is shown to your Bios by pressing delete at startup screen.. most likely the disk is having trouble.Still try to unplug the connector either sata or ide also try to test it on another ide/sata slot and also the connector to the psu.

Hope it helps, feedbacks appreciated

Dell dimension 5150 wont boot past post. I've tried afew things but nothing works. can you help? thanks


If it won't go past POST then there is a hardware error. Try removing the hard drive and RAM. The mother board should complain at power on giving messages. If it does, try fitting the RAM module by module, then the hard drive.

I BOUGHT CHEAP RAM, EBAY, DELL DIMENSION 8300 HUMMING


This system supports ECC and non-ECC Rambus modules. ECC and non-ECC modules can be mixed but ECC feature will be disabled. Modules must be installed in pairs. multiple modules - PC800 the max is 2 GBs
systems tool...run disc clean up...put a check mark in every box, you don' need anything there as it is all copies you have elsewhere...
then defraggment also in system tools.
If you really feel like making that ole girl hum, do a complete reinstall using the latest drivers from the dell site. If you use your service tag number it will select the better drivers for your application.

Dell Dimension 8300 wouldn't start


Sounds like a power supply. You are getting the standby voltage and not the switched. plug all your wires in except the big 20 or 24 pin motherboard connector, take a small wire and short the green (PSU_ON) to black (ground) wires. This will simulate the computers "ON" signal. The fans should all spin up and your plugged in accessories should work, which means bad motherboard, if not bad power supply.

Hard drive installation


You should be able to install that drive. The biggest variable is if it is a SATA or PATA drive. This model was built for SATA drives, but I think you may be able to get a PATA drive to work with the right adapters.

For the step by stem directions see the link below. It will take you right to the Dell support page. Refer to the "Adding a Second Hard Drive" section.

Wont boot up


Check to see if the Hard drive cable is securley attached to the mother board, and is powered up. Also, try taking the Hard drive and seeing if it works in another computer. If it does not work, then it is a bad hard drive that is causing this problem. Else, it may be a bad mother board. I Had this problem before, with a Dell. Called Tech Support, set a guy out, 30 minutes later, Problem solved. Best of Luck Dude.

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.
