my dell pc's sound system doesn't work, my computer tag number is optiplex GX270


This is a minor problem that can be fixed. Your sound card software or application might have been accidentally deleted so you will need to install a new one. If you still have your motherboard CD or the CD that came when you purchased this PC then insert it and search for the sound drivers. Or else, just download it from here and install.

Dell Optiplex GX270 will not start and power button is orange


I think that it is most likely that this is a power supply going bad. These can be purchased cheaply on eBay (make sure the picture matches). This replacement is moderately technical.

The other good possibility is a bad capacitor(s) on the motherboard. This is very common for the GX270s due to a manufacturer defect. Most of them failed in years 2-4, though. This would require a replacement motherboard (very technical). Pictures of bad capacitors: http://brianmorristech.com/?p=105

It could also be related to the power connector from the power supply to the motherboard (unlikely).

Another good option would be to buy a used GX270 from eBay and put your hard drive into it.

Dell Optiplex GX 270 pc desktop problem


I've heard that Dell will still honor the warranty if you mention the capacitors to them. They haven't recalled them, but they know it is a known problem.
