Hello. I have an old Dell Dimension 4600C and I received an error: Heatsink Alert! Chipset heatsink not detected. System Halted. I've viewed various posts on line that this is a common problem. I've...


Yes, you need to re solder the missing wire loop loop to the motherboard. If you can't find the loop you form one by bending a thin piece of wire in a half circle. You will have to remove the motherboard to solder the clip back on.

Trying to replace power plug how does laptop come apart have all screws out cannot get it apart


Hmm. Are you sure that you want to go any further,
i.e., I recommend that you STOP and take it to a qualified technician.

The power-plug is soldered to the motherboard;
so, you'll need "good" skills at using a soldering-iron,
if you wish to reattach it.

Did you lift-off and remove the keyboard, taking care to not damage the "ribbon-cables" which connect it to the motherboard?
There could be additional screws under the keyboard.

What manufacturer? What model?
Have you looked at the manufacturer's web-site, for downloadable documents, such as a "Service Manual" for it? That manual would describe the necessary "disassembly" steps.

Dell dimension 3000 stopped working no light on


When you connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? If not then -
The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's power socket could be faulty.
Check power adapter’s DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.
If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.
This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

My pc gets no power the flashing green light doesn't come on no fan nothing happens when i press the power button


best guess bad motherboard or bad power supply.

things to test:

1. Check that the power cord is plugged in snugly to the back of the computer and connected to a working power outlet or surge protector.

2. Check that the power cord is good. Replace if needed

3. Have the computers power supply checked. Replace if needed

4. Have the motherboard checked. Replace motherboard or get a new computer your choice.

Ineed to open my laptop to change broken power jack


hi there
the power jack is soldered to the motherboard which has to be removed to fit a new jack.
this involves a lot of time and you have to rember where all the screws came from as they are all different. one screw in the wrong hole can crack the motherboard ! it is not a job you should undertake unless you know what you are doing. my advice is get a pro to do it as its too risky unless the laptop is really old and not worth much. if you do get it repaired make sure everything is backed up first as the hard drive getting wiped is quite a common event.
good luck
