DELL GX60 WITH WINDOWS XP. MACHINE RE-STARTS AT ANY MOMENT

Hi

One friend of mine said his Dell did the same. After close examination of the mainboard he discovery some bad looking caps. Replaced them and solved the problem with his PC.

What capacitors are the ones that fails? Please advice.

Thanks

If you look at the top of the round shaped electrolytic capacitors, the good ones are flat, the bad ones are domed (internal pressure deforms the top of the capacitor and can explode).
Make sure you replace with the same capacitance and working voltage or slightly higher voltage.
These capacitors are polarized, make sure you don't solder them the wrong way.
Also the RAM may not make proper electrical connection, it can cause re-booting problems, remove the RAM and insert them a couple of times.
Over heating problems can also shut a computer down, make sure the fans are working properly, vacuum/remove dust from the fans (ie CPU fan & heatsink also from power supply and vents)

The ones that failed most in DELL's had a mark looking like a "+" or an "X" depending on your point of view. The ones that had "K"'s on top were usually the good ones.

Hi Rose, I'm Fred, and I am a Dell tech. :).
External drives are tricky because the computer may not be able to access them to boot from. Your best option is search for a replacement to the optical (cdrom) drive. Since you are buying one, try to get a dvd burner or dvd reader or cdrom burner. They are usually only a few dollars more, and come in handy down the road. Now, if you cannot get this computer repaired for less than 70 bucks, scrap it. the gx60 is a high-end pentium 3, and not worth much additional money. You can purchase a perfectly good used dell pentium 4 from gearxs for about 80 bucks, with windows XP, and all the basics installed, shipped to your house. the gx60 is not worth a heavy investment, unless you just happen to have the parts and the time.
