Question about Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop
First, to answer your question if I had a Pentium CPU on an AMD board, the answer is no. I continue to try MB, RAM, and fan only, but can't get the fan to even spin, still. SO, i bought from tigerdirect a barebone package, which included a tower, power supply (which may have been suspect), a K9MM-V AM2 MB, & AMD Sempron AM2 CPU, and 1024 DDR-2. Put this all together with my old heat sink & fan, and guess what, NO FAN!!!! I'm not a software guru, but I am a Mechanical Engineer & have worked on desktops before, so what do you think. I replaced this fan 1 month ago, so it shouldn't be blown; I will do a conductivity test to see if it's fried. If not, what else can I try. The MB has an internal video, so that can't be it, but I have not connected a CRT, assuming if the fan don't spin, something is wrong. Should I try a BIOS start? or what.
Fix my computer and I'll have nothing to say but good about Venezuela. Actually, thinkiing about trip to Curacao in August.

Well, if the powersupply whent, then everything is gone and you may need another fan. tis' the way of the powersupply. just try gettin g a new fan! now, does the computer start to boot when you try to turn it on with the fan not working? if it does, then that's good. if it doesn't, then try replacing the power switches in the case(or checking them first at least). hope that helps!
