It turns itself off when there is something wrong with it. You can check the system events from the bios menu why it does that. When it doesn't boot at all check the abcd lights at the back.

My dell optiplex gx270 will not boot up it is saying the sata primary drive is not found. your assistance would be appreciated. thanks!


Is your PC running well before? If yes, check the Harddisk (HD) on the BIOS mode. Is it detected? check your data cable & power cable to HD. If you try to add other HD (secondary) check the jumper of your HD. Usualy 'slave' for second HD.

Dell Optiplex GX270 - Freezes up!


You may have either a memory chip gone bad or the CPU overheating. Withot seeing it and testing it's hard to tell you which. But one thing you can try is if you have 2 RAM installed, try to remove 1 and see if the problem continues. If so, change them and put the one you removed back and remove the other. if it continues then you may have an overheating problem.

Otherwise, you can try a SCANDISK and DEFRAG to clean up the hard drive and data.

My Dell Optiplex GX270 goes into power saver mode


this sounds like a bad power supply unit. First check that your Ram and graphics card a free from dust and dirt by removing them from their slots and cleaning them with a dry soft paintbrush then replacing them gently but firmly. Next check that all of the power cables going into the motherboard are pushed in gently but firmly. If this is done and you still get the same problem, then I suggest changing the power supply unit.
