If it was running slow and now nothing at all happens when you press the power button, your power supply has probably died. Be careful replacing a power supply, if you accidentally get into the power supply itself, even with it unplugged it could kill you. DO NOT TRY TO REPAIR POWER SUPPLIES EVER! They are cheap and easy to replace, however dell has proprietary power supplies so you can't just go pick up a new one at the store. You must contact dell and order a new one. Once you have the part spend the few dollars to have it installed by a professional. If you are getting some action when starting (sounds, lights, ect.) it could be any number of things, but judging by the slow down I would say overheating. Again spend a few dollars to have a professional look for signs of heat damage and replace and bad components (hopefully not your system board) and install a new fan or additional cooling methods to prevent in the future.

Dimension 4600 dvd drive keeps opening


Try this first - open up the BIOS part of the system. To do this, shut the computer off; wait at least 10 seconds; turn the computer back on and then press F2 when the Dell logo appears. Press continually until the message Entering Setup appears. In the Boot Order section, remove the CD/DVD drive from the boot order by clicking on Disable from the drop-down menu. If this doesn't fix it, please resubmit your question

My dell dimension 4600 won't boot up and when you try to turn it off with the button it just starts back up.


It sounds like a back-up was started and now your system is trying to complete the task before it shuts down. You can turn it off by holding the power button down for 10 seconds. This will cause the power supply to shut down completely. You will lose any unsaved data and it may corrupt your back-up.

Dimension 4600 won't reset to factory settings


These model dells came with a recovery cd rather than a partition. You will need to call dell and have them send you a recovery cd and then use that disc to restore your computer to factory defaults.

Dell Dimesion 4600-Yellow light after I added memory


take out the newly installed stick and see if it comes on.  if it does, find out if the memory and motherboard are compatible.  if your computer no longer boots even with the new stick taken out, you probably already burned your motherboard and the damage is irreversible.  it can also be a bad stick that you installed.

Dimension 4600 won't reset to factory settings


First, if you have any data on the machine you want, I'd back it up to a USB flash/thumb drive.
Then, assuming you purchased the machine new, you should have the maroon/silver "Recovery Disk". Pop that in the CD, and restart the machine. Press F12 to select BOOT OPTIONS. Select CD Hit Enter. This should start the Dell Recovery process. If you do not have the Rec. CD, contact Dell. They should be able to provide you the org. software - for a small fee of course.

Boot up


Maybe your CMOS battery is low on power. Have it replaced with a new/good one.
Hope it works for you.

Hard Drive


Put the CD in your CD Drive and shut off the pc. Then start it up again making sure the CD is still in the drive. You will then be asked if you want to boot from CD. Press any key to confirm this (it might skip asking you if it detects that your hard-drive is already blank) Then you want to let it run its install routine. Im not sure what options it will give you but the ones you are looking for is FULL install.
