Segate drives are prone to blow the diode between 12V and ground. When this shorts they draw masses of power (I have one which was smoking & drawing about 250W) and then the PSU won't start because of the short.

Put a meter over the small square diode marked something like BUX C??? (? are three numbers but they differ between drives) it should be about 10KO if it's more like 1 ohm then you have a short.

Clip it out & the drive will run, but it's a "penny in the fusebox" method - use it to recover your data only.

Clip it out & replace it with something like an SMD 1N4004 & you'll be back in business.

Are you Sure that the computer model is Dell Optiplex GX260? Because looking at the manual diagnostic lights are found at the back. and the fault can be determine If the ABCD lights are yellow or green. But None the less 2/3 Depicts a hard drive problem while 3/4 depicts a memory issue.

Hard drive Issue:

1. Disconnect all non essential cables at the back of the computer. Leave only the mouse, monitor and keyboard. See if it boots up normally
2. If it boot up fine. try plugging one peripheral at a time until you find which peripheral causes the computer not to POST (Power on Self Test)
3. If you still getting problems, Follow these steps
4. To access the BIOS you must tap F2 or delete key upon turning the computer on
5. Try to look for the Hard drive if it is detected by BIOS if not got to step 9
6. Look for Boot Sequence or anything that is associated Boot
7. The Order boot of must be 1st: DVD Drive, 2nd: Hard drive, 3rd: Network etc.
8. Save the changes and Restart
9. If you still get the same message I suggest that you take out the hard drive and put it back in until it is detected in BIOS
10. If Step 9 did not work I think you need to replace the Hard drive

Memory Issue:

1. Open the chassis of the computer
2. Try taking out all memory modules
3. Rub the metal contacts of all memory with a pencil eraser
4. If more than one memory. Put one memory first and turn the computer on. If it turned on add another memory and turn the computer on. Repeat these steps until you determine which memory is faulty or all memory module contacts needs cleaning

How are you restoring it? You need a memory stick and you need to find the update on playstations website and follow instructions on how to save it to the memory stick. Then you insert it in the ps3 and it should start restoreing from the memory stick. Atleast this is how you do it when your putting a new hard drive in your ps3 or a used laptop hard drive. It wont restore if it doesnt know what programs to put on it.

My computer screen is stuck on hp logo nothing including key is responding my computer is stuck on hp invent screen.... it wont go past that, doesnt respond to f8 or esc. HELP


Sounds like a faulty hard drive that is locking up the system. Take out the hard drive completely and turn on the computer and see if it goes past the HP screen. If it does then the hard drive is bad. If it still locks up on you then reseat the memory one stick at a time in one slot at a time. If this doesnt work then you might be having motherboard issues.

Try these things and let me know what happens and I'll help you further.

My computer wont turn on it just keeps making a beeping noise it doesnt stop till i turn of the power


Usually it is a loose component or a bad component. Usually a memory card or a hard drive that isn't plugged in all the way.

Check your connections.
