Question about Dell Optiplex GX110 (2909T) Motherboard

Video reader knocked loose, moniter won't work.

Brought computer to store to see what I needed for more memory. Hard to get cover off, very hard. After memory was added and computer put back together, the monitor wouldn't work. Neighbor said since monitor worked before memory was added, must have loosened the video card reader? If so, where do I look for this and get the connection back?

You are referring to the Video Card - it is the card that the monitor connects to which could also be integrated depending on model. There should be beeps indicating if the card is actually loose. There is also a possibility that there is an issue with the new memory. Was the system not tested before you received it back? Have you tried it with the old memory? Service manuals are available on DELL's website.

    Beeps can be either video card or memory. Have you tried inserting old memory? The new memory may not be compatible.

  • Curtis Richner Dec 13, 2008

    Remove the new memory and try it.

Hi, yesterday I accidently knocked over my CPU when it was on the ground, i accidently kicked it a little and it tilped over, but then it started making alot of beepig noises and the moniter turned black,...


It may just be that the memory (RAM) has popped loose from its socket on the motherboard. Without memory the computer won't start up, and usually gives a long loud beep as an error code. You can check this and reseat the memory if it's needed.

With the power off, take the cover off your computer case. On most computers now, the left side (as viewed from the front) comes off when you remove a couple of screws from the back. On some computers there may also be a latch you need to press down. The cover may lift right off, or you may need to slide it back.

Once the cover's off you need to find the RAM sockets. This picture shows what they look like:

pgh_pa_guy_36.jpg

Your board may have only two sockets and they may be somewhere else on the board, but this is what you're looking for.

The RAM is on a little circuit board that plugs into the socket and is held in place by latches. In the picture above, the latches are the white squares, but they may look different in your computer. If the RAM has come out of the socket (it can happen!), it will be lying somewhere in the computer. Line the connector fingers on the RAM with the socket and press it straight down until the latches snap into place. The sockets are made so you can't put the RAM in backwards, so if the memory won't fit be sure you have it facing the right way.

Once you have the RAM firmly seated, try turning the computer on again. If that was the problem, it should start up normally if there was no damage. Memory can be damaged by removing or installing it with power on, so if you found the RAM out of its socket and the trouble still continues, you may need to replace it. But maybe you'll be lucky.

Can't play back videos on my experna; memory card Sandisk class 4 8Gb. Have a canon Vixia HFR10 camcorder


Okay, ours is a different brand (JVC) but they may have some basic similarities in function. To playback video clips stored on the memory card, put the memory card in the card reader slot of the computer and put the files onto the computer. Playback the clips from your computer video or photo file. (Ours won't playback video stored on the memory card through the camera.)

To playback video clips stored on the camera hard drive through the camera, we open the viewer screen, look at the function keys on the camera body, select the "Play" button. On the screen it displays thumbnails of the various video clips. We use the toggle/function key to select from the menu containing options for playback, edit, delete, protect, etc.

Can't seem to upload from camera to pc. it has worked in the past but this time i plug in the usb and it says 'one moment' then busy before going blank. nothing happens on the pc moniter?


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Cannot transfer movies from camera to my computer. have new computer


Check whether the Camera has any settings that has to be selected in order to connect it to the Computer.

If the Computer is not recognizing the Camera/Camcorder, check whether the USB Driver is installed in the Computer or not. Also, the Computer will not recognize the Camera/Camcorder if the USB Driver is corrupted. In this case you may un-install and install the USB Driver is the Computer.

After the Computer recognizes as Removable device, you can double-click on it to view the video files stored in the Memory of the Camera. Then, you can copy and paste the video files to the desired location on the Hard drive of the Computer.

If un-installing and installing the USB Driver does not work then you may transfer the files using Memory Card Reader.
If the Computer has the Memory Stick slot, then you can transfer the video files without using the Card Reader.

Nothing happens


Depending on how big the knock was it could have been severe enough to damage your hard drive.  The boot up of the machine hence the fan is caused by the CPU heating and the fan cooling it however when the bios and CPU ask the hard drive to boot up it cannot thus that is the failure of your startingup. It may need the attention of serviceman to repair it and even he may suggest a replacement of the hard drive.
