Messed Up Dimension 4600
I ended up putting everything into an Antec Perfromance Plus case with a 430W Antec True Power supply. Solution: Buy a new case/PSU. On our 4600, its a NMB, which are a really good fan company, but the motherboard only runs the fan up to about 50~60% speed due to noise. The CPU fan makes it louder, but I am able to keep it turned down quite low. his comment is here
Of coarse, if you need a replacement for those specific psu's, pc power and cooling sells some compatible ones. Memory has never been cheaper for these Dells, but that will change soon as they have stopped making the PC2700 and PC3200. It is telling me SATA primary drive and SATA secondary drive and the primary drive 1 not found. Thanks much for any help anyone can give. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/8424-2-help-dimensions-4600

The motherboard is receiving power. The motherboard is ATX compliant and will fit inside a standard case. I already knew about a issue with the PSU, so I went out and bought a Antec TruePower 750. http://www.techspot.com/community/topics/dell-dimension-4600-review.54482/ If I turn the SATA drive off in the bios the machine boots fine, but obviously I would like to have access to the SATA drive so I keep it turned

- If my stupid BIOS could allow me to select different hard drives to boot from I would have had no problems.
- This could not be used in the Antec case, which is how I ended up with the Thermalright cooler. 3.
- Also, my current specs are P4 2.8 ghz w/ 1 gig of ram, I was wondering if that would limit the capabilities of the vid card.
All rights reserved. Take apart the Dell, removing the mobo/proccy/RAM, video card (if any), PCI cards, hard drives, and cd drives/floppy drives.

which is rare. TO CHANGE 1ST BOOT DEVICE TO HARD DISK... So now I have to manually go into the bios (F12) and select the IDE drive to boot from. About a minute ago, it (the problematic 4600) started powercycling (half-second on, half-second off).
