    I have the exact same problem. I am not technical at all, I don't even know where to look for the motherboard! Did anyone manage to fix this error yet?

I have a Dell Optiplex GX 280. When I turn on my computer a black screen appears. What can I do?

check the hard disk to be powered and the plugs to be on ...and try again ...Go to bios settings by pressing del on start ..or the F key suggested on the screen on boot..In here locate the optimal factory defaults and engage them ..confirm and after that save the settings by pressing the F10 key and confim
This will make all devices to be set to the factory defaults..After that if it still does the same it means the windows installed on it corrupted..or the hdd with the operation system is corrupted and the windows files can not be read so the boot can not continue...First try to insert a boot-able cd ..with the operation system on it ..and try to reinstall it ..Format drive C during the installation in ntfs quick mode..This will eliminate all bugs and strange things ..If the installation goes well means the hdd is ok ..and will work ,, remember you will need all drivers for it and need to install them in order to function , the thing to be done is to get to the manufacturer support site and download them by model and operation system before beginning the operation ..cause once the installing being done can not connect to the net without the LAN driver....
If the installing can not be done ..and during installation you are informed that the hdd is inexistent or ..corrupted...than you will have to change it ..
Cause it seam to stop the boot on the video card information it will be a good start to check the video card too ..specially if it isnt an on board one ..but a pci ..It may be damaged and this to be the reason for not booting right ..

Bios Error Message

With the system off, open the side cover and re-seat the RAM. You may have one module that is bad.
Second, press F2 as soon as you see the Dell screen and see if you can get into the BIOS setup. Post back with the results please.
Good luck!

DELL Optiplex GX280 PC don't boot

This is what I did & it worked to solve this error message on my Dell Optiples GX-280. Intel(r) Grantsdale-G PCI Accelerated SVGA BIOS
Build Number: 3314 PC Dev 04/12/2004 17:02:24
Copyright (C) 2000-2003 Intel Corp. All rights reserved. I uninstalled all the ram except for one chip. I rebooted the system to to see if the one chip worked (ready to repeat the process if it didn't & thinking maybe it could also have a bad ram slot). The 1st chip worked & it went right into bios(clapping hands!!!) I then turned off & on the system...each time adding a new ram chip to see if any were bad, but to my surprise...none were...they all worked just fine after that(clapping hands & shaking head!!!)! Just to let you know...I had 4 sticks of DDR-2 4200 in it when I did all this...I know I takes DDR-3200, but it will just clock it down to 3200 & still works just me. Computer works fine now with no error messages what so ever...hope that helps~; )
