Question about Dell Optiplex GX280 (99301) Motherboard
The system hangs after booting, about 5 mins after booting
If it happens at 'random' times, and won't restart immediately, most likley it's overheating due to dust blocked heat sink / fan (or a bad fan)
If it always happens at the some point in the boot up before you get the password prompt .. most likley it's s/w
Hit F8 during power up.. select 'last known good'
If that fails, F8 and select 'Safe Mode'
If you get into Safe Mode, uninstall whatever you last installed that is causing the lock up (most likley some hardware driver or some virus/root kit you got via email)
