    I have a Dell Dimension 4600 I am working on. It won't boot. The trouble lights on the back are:
    A: Green
    B: Amber
    C: Amber
    D: Green

    This seems to be the only combination that Dell doesn't cover in their service manual.

    Anyone know what that code might signify?

    I have tired all of the standard remedies. Reset RAM, removed peripheral cards, unplugged drives.

    The only one that seem to make a difference is that if I unplug the floppy I get an error message that the floppy wasn't detected.

    If I try to go to setup to disable the floppy I just end up with the same message that the floppy can't be detected and it won't go to setup.

    If I put a known good floppy in I get the same condition.

    With the floppy installed I get the power and activity lights along with it checking the DVD's. It then hangs with the floppy light and the power and activity lights lit. It just sets in the boot up screen with the activity bar about 90% complete and doesn't do anything else.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.
