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.

Check point (VMGR) error in boot screen


Run the Check Disk Utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

Need to change clock to 800 FSB from orig 400 Dell Optiplex GX60


Over clocking features tend to be locked out by client request (Dell) when ordering boards from manufacturers. this is to stop home users changing things like FSB and voltage ect. so the bios comes with features like that missing or hidden.

You would have to pop the BIOS chip out for another one that's come from another board that would have been sold retail or OEM not for Dell or similar.

So could be tricky for you :-(

Still, I hope I have helped.

I have an optiplex gx60 i need to now how many mb have the intergrated video card


If you have an assembled system which is up and running, you can download the free Belarc Advisor which will examine in detail your hardware system along with OS details and output it via Internet Explorer (4.0 or higher).
Belarc Advisor
If you are just getting it running, you will have to dig through Dell's website for that info.

CANT GET WINDOWS XP PRO TO COPY FILES TO A GX280


The problem is the driver for the sata hard drive. You would need to get that from the dell site and put it on a floppy disk, then at the start of the windows install select to install that driver. I ended up just installing the rc version of windows 7 and it worked out fine.
