You can buy adapters for this very thing. Less than 20 bucks at most computer stores. I looked on newegg and they were 11.99.

My Dell System GX280 would not come on. I thought it was the power supply, which is built into the computer, so I got a new power supply (a general one that's worked on all my past computers from


Test the leads that attach to your ((hard drive from the motherboard)) make sure they have dust free secure connections or replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your ((motherboard to hard drive)) if its a 40 pin IDE this will be the first to fail

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs continue its cycle power and data to travel through every working device and have an end point so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

Dell optiplex GX280 decommissioned and hard drive formatted to remove business records. MS Windows XP Professional reloaded and the computer was restarted as per instructions. Nothing at all happened. No...


One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test the leads that attach to your ((hard drive from the motherboard)) or replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your ((motherboard to hard drive))
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error


hope this helps

SATA Hard Drive Type The Dell Optiplex GX280 Takes?


Hi,

It makes no difference providing the computer motherboards support SATA interface.

SATA 1 and 2 drivers are in the BIOS. If all the computers have SATA 1 you can upgrade the BIOS to latest version via Dell's support website.

Installation of IDE and Sata Hard Drives at a time


set your computer's BIO settings to default through the F2 button then connect the IDE fast and make sure its the master with an Operating system on it then connect the SATA after the IDE has been detected.

Dell Optiplex Gx280 - cant detect two IDE hard drives


Hi,

You should attach two hard drives on primary ide. Set both jumpers to cable select ( or one on end is master, middle one is slave). The one at the end of the cable is where your o/s should be. You could try putting the third on seconday, along with your dvd rom.

Dll gx280 case


first off does the motherboard have both sata and ide connections or just sata or just ide? (sata are small about maybe 1/2 inches in length and 1 mm wide and a ide connection is approx 5 inches long with about 4 inches long with over 100 pins and about 1/2 inches wide) i know that the opliplex 520 are nothing but sata so if it uses the same mobo as the 520 and you have ide then its imposible to install on your computer unless it either has a ide connection or you get a ide pci or pci-e controller card and install that onto the computer. but for the most part a ide connection needs a ide cable and a sata connection needs a sata cable.

Cannot get 2 IDE devices to show in bios.


Does the computer have two IDE channels? If so set the Maxtor HDD as master on the primary channel and the DVD drive as master on the secondary channel. Also right click on My Computer, left click on Manage and left click on Disk Management and see if the drives show up there. Also check the boot order in BIOS.
