Question about Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop
Hello, your computer is not POSTing. The chances are that the computer mainboard is faulty. However I myself never leave it there. The first thing to do is remove the BIOS/CMOS battery for about 2 minutes, then reinstall it in the correct orientation. This will set the BIOS/CMOS to the default settings giving you the best possible chance of success. When turning on your PC does it beep at you, there must of course be a speaker connected to the output header, this is where the LEDs for power and Hard drive activity are located. One beep means all is good and the PC will boot normally. Also when the PC is turned on without RAM installed does it beep at you, it should! Ive see this many times before in my experience nine out of ten times it's the mainboard that is faulty. In which case you would need to buy a replacement mainboard.
I assume that you have ensured that all connections are clean and properly seated in their corresponding connectors.
All the best, damnor01
