Question about Dell OptiPlex GX260 PC Desktop
I cleaned the fans of my Dell Optiplex GX260 desktop PC's fan and power supply unit. Thereafter I turned the PC on and it worked fine. I then replaced the hard disk and the PC didn't start again. When I checked inside, I observed an orange light on the motherboard. It stays permanently on but the PC won't start. HELP!
1. motherboards for atx form factor pc's are powered even when the computer is off, particularly if you leave the computer plugged in to wall outlet... you better do not work on you computer while power cable is still connected to both, your pc and the wall outlet..
2. I found this thread that may be helpful, it may be the motherboard may have gone bad, cmos is corrupted or something may not be seated properly...it could also be one of these: Bad CPU, BAD ram, Bad power supply.. read the thread for details:
