What's the "tad connector"?
\015 What is the "tad connector (j6bq)" on my dell Dimension 4600 Series for? the computer shuts down everytime after some hours and i don't know what it is. i opened the pc and discovered a loose wire wich fits in the "tad connector" on the mortheboard but i don't know what it's for.\015
The TAD connector stands for Telephone Answering Device, this should have nothing to do with your computer shutting down sporatically. You may have an over-heating problem. If you are not using your computer as a fax machine, you don't need a wire plugged into the TAD connector. The TAD connector is sometimes used as a sound card connector, so if you have trouble with your sound card, try plugging in that wire.
