Roy,
There is a service tag number on every Dell ever sold. It usually is a white label with a bar code on it. For example, my old Dell 150 has a service tag code of BTVBX01. Any 0 you see is a zero not the letter "O". Newer models like yours also included an Express Service code which is entirely numerical. It provides the same function of identifying your computer. Find either one and then go to Dell Support online and you should be able to accurately identify your system and find the correct driver.

If you like, I would be glad to take your service tag and find the information for you. I worked for Dell nearly 5 years and I can help you.

How do I replace the video card in my Dell Optiplex GX280 computer?


There are two black button of the sides near the back. Press both in and lift the top upwards. It is hinged at the front and opens like a book. The GX280 has a built-in video card.

Check to see if it has another by checking the PCI slots for a card with the monitor's plug on the rear. (You can check without opening the computer by opening the Device Manager. Make sure View has "show hidden" selected. Under Display, look to see what is listed. More than one, means you have a card installed in addition to the built in card.

Remove the second card or a blank if there is no second card. Insert the new video card. Close the unit and restart. If you have a CD with the video card, install it when prompted.

Good Luck

I have a dell optiplex gx280. when i try to play video from any site, it reboots. changed monitors and same problem.


It is not a Monitor Issue. It seems to be an issue with the Video Card (if any) or the Drviers installed for the Video Card. Try reinstalling the drivers for the Video Card and also flash the BIOS for the same. You cal also change the setting in BIOS inorder to stop restarting the system on any errors.

For any further support please call Dell Tech support @ 1-800-624-9896

Will a dell gx280 motherboard fit into a gx260 (dell) case?


If it is a slim gx260 case, it might not. If it is the wide case, it will, but the two motherboards have different power supplies. You will need to use a gx280 power supply to power it on. However, you can use a gx270 motherboard in a gx260 case without changing the power supply.


Hope this helps!

I need a new graphics card for my dell optiplex gx260 what can i buy


What you are looking for is an AGP 4x Low Profile video card, The GX260 is designed to be a business Small Form Factor computer so you are really limited on what you can upgrade to.
What are you looking to do with the video card?
How much do you want to spend on the upgrade?
What Country are you shopping in?

I have the same Problem for the Optiplex GX280


Sound like you need to go to Dell's website and download the drivers for the video card and the sound card. If they have updated version of the bios for your computer that probably wouldn't hurt either.

Dell Optiplex GX280 Video Card Install Problem


You hit that one right on the dot.  ATI website showed the specs for that graphics card you installed as needing a 300 Watt power supply.  Good news though... I researched newegg.com and I believe I found your 300W power supply.  There are 4 different Optiplex gx280 designs with 4 completely different power supplies.  Since you bought the low-profile video card, I believe you have the slim computer case and this power supply should work for you...

Orange power switch light Dell Gx260


Gx260-Gx280 have a known issue with the motherboard capaciators. Take a look at the capaciators on the motherboard and check if any look like they have bludges at the top particularly around the memory banks. If any of them look like this the motherboard most likely needs to be replaced.

Video card onboard


Did you mean HGX 260?. Her is the download page for the GX 260. Natually you will have to turn back on the "on board" video in the BIOS . If this video driver doesn't work,all you have to do is rool back the driver nothing lost.
