I used to recommend Dell to friends and family because I always had good luck with them, until I bought the 4600….
Yep, same as everyone else, after 18 months it was dead as a door nail. I replaced the power supply but that didn’t fix it. Seems I’m one of the “lucky” ones that lost the motherboard too.
I called Dell and they won’t admit to anything being out of the ordinary of course, they also told me they are out of stock on 4600 motherboards. Surprise, Surprise!!! I wonder why?
They were supposed to call me back… still… holding… my breath…
Same as the others. My guarrantee expired on january 12, after 1 year of purchasing, and bingo… by february 8 I kept on having blue screens and constant shut downs. They told me it was a motherboard problem, and That I needed to buy a new one. No way I am spending that money and giving it to them again. I rather get a new pc from another company. Tech support was pretty attentive I’d say, but half the time they knew what they were talking about. I am bringing my complaint, together with this webpage, as a proof, to the BBB.
Four months out of warranty, my power supply died. And yes, Dell tried to tell me it was tech support. Stay away from this model, at least. I’ll post an update if Dell decides to help me out.

I bought this motherboard in hopes of replacing my friends old motherboard that was said to be dead by the best computer shop in town. I am 75% sure that they are right as the only other possible cause of its current condition would be that the AGP graphics card failed and I don’t have something that old to try in it.
*****Buyer beware – Dell motherboards only work with dell cases as the front panel connecter is not the same as the rest of the world. I have also heard that the power connectors are not compatible with the rest of the world as well. Although they fit the same, it is said that it will fry your motherboard. (Pretty sure the one I bought is still operational though.)
I am almost considering buying them a whole new rig from amazon for 100 bucks, as it would be an upgrade and about the same price as fixing their stuff.
P.S: I still give the seller 5 stars because it was my fault for not knowing about the compatibility issue before purchase.
Needed it to keep my computer going & it worked. That is a great thing saved me from buying a new computer.
