Question about Dell Optiplex GX280 (99301) Motherboard

1 Answer

Cannot find replacement parts

I work for a school's IT department. we have 30-40 dell optiplex gx270's and gx280's. recently many are dying. we have narrowed the problem down to being a faulty MOBO, and are looking into replacing them if we can find new or refurbished parts, however we have not been able to find any. Do you have any suggestions on where to look or is it not worth it?

    Have you tried to contact Dell's PR people and explain the situation to see if they could help you?



    Just a thought.

Dell Optiplex GX280. When working with home videos and when working on the internet fan seeds up. After opening a web page fan slows down. When I click a link or the next button fan runs fast again then...


either your computer is changing the fan speed depending on the temperature and has been doing this since you got it, then it's normal
but, if this is a recent change, then the fan is possibly getting ready to fail and should be replaced before it does.

Dell Optiplex GX280 - On power ON , no Fan movement no display


Confirm no leaking or bulging capacitors on your mothboard.
refer to here
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague

As this was a common problem with the GX280.
If found, you will need to replace the capacitors.

The other check is to make sure the heatsink is fitted correctly, perhaps reaply the thermal paste if you have any. I know that high temps would switch the GX280 off.

Dell Optiplex GX280 won't start. Fan sounds like a Boeing 757


If the processor is ok, you can just change the motherboard. Then look for a compatible motherboard that can accept your processor.
