SOURCE: Dell Optiplex GX280 boot problem

I just repaired two Gateway systems with similar behavior (turn on power, fan runs at full speed, no boot), and both needed replacement system boards. (These were a different model, but the symptoms are typical of a dead system board.) I got the boards from a company called Blue Raven Technology (www.blueraven.com).

Before deciding the main board is bad, try another power supply to make sure that's not the problem. Also you might try clearing the CMOS memory on the system board (either by moving a jumper usually found near the backup battery, or by removing the battery itself). Sometimes corrupted CMOS data will keep the system from booting.

Why fan operates in sleep mode Dell OptiPlex 780?


Possibly it is overheating, which would depend on how often it runs, and how fast. During startup, it is normal for a fan to run at high speed, but if it's on constantly in sleep mode, I would look towards an overheating problem. Open it up, check for, and clean any dust around the heatsink / fan, and power supply fan. Also make sure that outside the PC there is plenty of space to allow airflow.

Dell OptiPlex 780 with Windows 7 does not play my cd's or dvd's and is missing from device manager


Sounds like a problem of non-detection by the system. If the drive is missing from My Computer then it definitely is a non-detection issue. Try using this file (it's an exe when unzipped) and only required double-clicking.
