Having problems with your Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop ?

Power problem I have a dell dimension 4600 desktop and the tower will not power on. I have tried switching the power cord and thats not the problem, plugged it in a another outlet and still nothing. I'm not sure if the power button could be broke as it does not seem broke. Also, I have noticed after taking off the cover, that it has a green lit light on the circuit board so I guess thats good? Why wont my tower power?


Answers :

Check for unplug wire coming from the front panel if there is nothing unplug you may have to change your power supply or if you have a power supply tester check it first if not i'm kind of sure the problem is your power supply rate me

CPU overheating I was wondering if anyone knew about any cpu overheating problems with the gateway MT3422. I have read several articles on this issue, and wonder if this may be my problem. I noticed that the laptop does get really hot, even with a cooling unit underneath it. The computer is now not wanting to turn on after restarting due to recent updates. I get a power light on after pushing the button a few times, no other lights are on, the CPU fans does turn on and the cd rom does spin. F 12
