I have a perfectly good dell dimension 4600 that is only like 2 years old.
last thanksgiving it stopped working and my parents bought a new computer, and now i have an old, slow, laptop.
The dimension 4600 was a pretty good computer, and before it stopped working, it had probably $800 put into it, including new disc drive and a second large hard drive.
I now want to fix it up to use it.
It has something like 150 gigs of hard drive
It has a load of ram
the processor is nice, i think intel pent 4 or celaron
On a day last november i went to start the computer up, it didnt.
I pressed the power button many times, there was no reaction of the computer, nothing started.
I tried everything that i could think of, nothing worked.
I know that the pc is receiving power because when the cord is connected, a small light goes on, on the motherboard.
I tried calling dell, but since our service plan was expired, they were not much help.
One thing that they had me try was to remove the ram and plug the computer in, when it did not beep, dell said that it was because the motherboard was fried.
Is that true, that pc has had problems before when we called dell, they were wrong about the problem twice, costing us money.
Does anyone have any idea of what could be wrong with my pc?
Is the motherboard really fried?
Could it be the power switch?
Does anyone know what could have caused the problem? was it my fault or dell's?
Please respond soon with your thoughts! if you need more info on my computer, ask please
