Lack of knowledge of Dell OptiPlex SX280 SFF video capabilities

I want to set a computer up as a media center but don't know if the
onboard video capabilities of this particular unit will allow me to watch
my vids in full 1080P on my 42'' flatscreen. Tried to find specifics of
onboard video at dell site but was unable to do so. Would appreciate
anyones input who knows. Thanks!

Nop, you will not be able to watch 1080p, the graphic card is not that good, you have an integreted intel GMA 900 graphic card, that card can never show full HD as 1080p is. And the 512mb memory that you have, thats is not good enough either.


Sorry M8



Good luck

It shutdown on and off after 2,3 5, or 7 minutes with video and audio it will shutdown more : thank (dell sx280) alex thank


It will be overheating.
1) open the casing and clean out any dust inside the machine, be very careful with individual components
2) turn on the computer with the case open and watch to see if any fans fail to start spinning
If you clean it out and the fans are all working your computer should be a bit more reliable now, otherwise it is a faulty component you will have to replace.

How to fix your dead Dell Optiplex-SX280


If the Dell Optiplex-SX280 doesn't boot anymore.
This means totally dead, only clicking sound from internal buzzer and blinking power button led.
Look to the "big" Capacitors top cap.
If they are pushed above you have to replace them.
Fixed, see below link

No signal to the monitor( no problem on DVI cable or monitor) may be the VGA card failed


I agree. However to fully determine, try a known-good monitor with known-good DVI cable. If so, the bad news is you likely will need either a third-party video card or a new systemboard.

Dell Optiplex GX280 restarts suddenly? all files closed and . the restart could be after 2,3 minutes of power on. I don't know why its behaving like this?


Hi, sounds like a crash, do you get any report messages after reboot? Try starting in safe mode; press Del button during initial bootup, once in safe mode you can reset to a time before the problem started. Hope this helps, if not come back to me?

Dell GX280 will not boot into OP. Keeps looping back to the Safe Mode screen over and over. Anyone know whats up?


This looks like a software or hardware conflict. Try running 'chkdsk' from WinXP setup cd (or Vista's), (after booting, choose option to repair).

If disk check does not help, then you will have to back-up your data manually, format the harddrive, and re-install OS.
