Question about Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop
It has many issues of non working or not properly working and it's files move so Windows can't find them making it rather useless. It has an infrastructure wifi system that never worked but is virus clean, hardly used (like brand new)along with refusing most programs that can rectify these problems. The 'shop' said they're clueless. Am I going to have to replace it-most likely?!

Honestly, my first suggestion would have been to upgrade your memory. If you go into control panel and check your power settings (I'm assuming you're on windows XP) Do you have all of you options set to "Never"? You may also want to check your BIOS settings to see how your sleep/hibernate is set up. Aside from that, you'd have to run some hardware diagnostics to give a better idea of what to look for. Hope this helps!

You cant install xp on one machine and then move the drive to another. By nature the xp install is tied to the hardware of the machine it is installed on

It could very well be the Mobo or the power supply. You may want to try to take the CMOS battery out for a few mins as well, I have had problems with that. But I would try PS first, get one from Circuit city or another electronics store and if it doesnt fix it take it back. I dont know if you know a lot about computers but you could buy a new Mobo just make sure the Ram and Processor match up

Does anything show up on the screen when you access your BIOS?
Have you tried a fresh install?
Are there two video adapters installed (one integrated and the other in the AGP slot?
