Your model has a chassis intrusion switch.

Do you have a user guide to tell you how to reset it?

If not here is a link: http://tomcat.yc.edu/servman/Desktops/GX260_SM/index.htm

Next time..power down before opening the case.

Sounds like the motherboard died. Open the case and look at the capacitors towards the raer of the case. If any of them are buldging, or are leaking a brown "goo" the MoBo is toast.
Fairly common problem in early Optiplex units.

My Dell Optiplex 330 does not turn on,there is a yellow led light blinking


Hi,
If the power light is blinking amber, the computer is receiving electrical power, but an internal power problem might occur.

Ensure that the voltage selection switch is set to match the AC power at your location, if applicable.

Ensure that the processor power cable is securely connected to the system board.

Dell Optiplex GX280 restarts suddenly? all files closed and . the restart could be after 2,3 minutes of power on. I don't know why its behaving like this?


Hi, sounds like a crash, do you get any report messages after reboot? Try starting in safe mode; press Del button during initial bootup, once in safe mode you can reset to a time before the problem started. Hope this helps, if not come back to me?
