Dell wont start up

Hi,
I have a Del Dimension 4600, and now it will not start up. I turn in on, and the green light appears in the front, but nothing shows up on the screen and I dont hear all those extra sounds it makes when it starts up anymore, just the fans. I have had problems with my monitor turning white for a minute on and off , but I don't think the monitors the problem, Im not sure what the problem is. Can you help please?

On the back of the chassis, there are 4 LEDs above the PS2 connections marked ABCD what do they indicate? During the boot process the lights normally flash on and off green, when the boot process is complete, they should all be green GGGG.

If any are Amber then they are indicating a power on self test (POST) failure. AAGG is bad memory for example.

Post the indications

The power LED light is orange instead of green and it won't turn on


Hi! for most dell machines if the power led is orange its an indication of a issue with the ram, try to reseat the ram first.if that doesnt work normally for dimension 4600, there are diagnostic lights that are located at the back panel of the machine, they are four bicolor lights(amber and green) You can determine the exact problem by checking these lights and you can interpret them by going to this website: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim4600/en/4600i/sm/adtshoot.htm#1112886 hope this helps...

I have a Dell Dimension 4600 and it won't boot up. When I turn it on the green power light comes on and hard drive activity light flashes however no fans come on, the screen doesn't show the Dell logo or...


i would have to disagree with jerry, while that seems reasonable if the motherboard fan isn't running at all then whether or not the video card is ok is somewhat irrelevant.
I would agree somewhat though, i think the PSU might be a good thing to check to see if it is functional.
when you power it on does the CPU fan start or shudder at least ? that would be my first guess for a problem if you had been having any problems recently

Wont power up


Hi jgeorge76,

I'm sorry to tell you this, but the yellow light means that there is an internal power problem. Usually this problem is a worn-out power supply (the unit at the back of the computer near the top that the power cord plugs into), and it would explain why the computer won't turn on.

If your computer is still under warranty, I suggest you seek help from Dell. If not, don't worry -- a power supply is relatively inexpensive (around $30-40) and not too difficult to replace. You can easily purchase one online and install it yourself. Rest assured that your hard drive and all its contents are safe and intact; you just need to replace the power source.

I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
