    Is this yellow light preventing you from doing something?

The yellow power indicator means a "No POST" situation. The fact that you were 'wiping' the hard drive is actually coincidental. I bet you did it because the computer was acting "funny".

IF the link is still good, go to http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/dsn/en/tree?c=us&l=en&s=gen&journalid=&treeid=38C43DA27A1AC953E040A68F5B281F68&Query=&SystemID=&ServiceTag=&contenttype=&os=&component=&lang=&doclang=&toggle=&dl= and that will run you through troubleshooting to help you diagnose what _caused_ the no POST.

Orange light on D


Ha! We used to have loads of these - if I recall, it was a network adapter error - otherwise, check the motherboard for blown capacitors, they'll be bulging or even spewing yellow gunk out the top. This was a very common issue and Dell should replace the board free of charge.

MY DELL GX270 IS NOT SUPPORTIN THE IDE IN HIS BIOS. I HAVE TRIED MY ALL TRICK BUT I CAN'T SOLVE IT PLZ TELL ME THE SOLUTION. WHEN WE ENTERED THE WINDOWS CD IN THE CD ROM. IT INSTALL THE WINDOW. BU


WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules

Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE
The leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty. Any bad or faulty power or data lead or connection can cause a computer not boot up.
Motherboard and a Hard Drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail.

I have a hard disk running on windows 95 but in DOS mode from another computer. When i fix it to GX270 desktop, the serial port does not function. I need to know what driver I need to download from Dell...


It is not a good idea taking a hard drive from one computer
and using it on another. When windows is installed, it loads
all the drivers for the hardwares attached to a particular
motherboard. Your new Dell GX270 cannot function properly
with the drivers loaded for a different motherboard.
You can fix all your compatibility problems by installing a
fresh new copy of Windows 95 on your GX270.

Can gx270 use SATA internal hard drive ?


Hi,
1. You can refer to your device motherboard user manual to find it our if the SATA HDD is supported or not.
2. If you dont have motherboard manual, just remove the screws behind your computer and remove the cabinet side cover and look onto the motherboard inside it. If you find SATA slots, then you can use SATA HDDs in your machine.

3. If there is no SATA slots in your motherboard, you can still use a SATA HDD to your system by getting a PCI to SATA convertor card.

I Hope this is helpful to you
Thanks

Gx270 dell During istall of OEM XP I get blue screen codes 24,8,&

I have put here a pic or two for you to see what defective caps look like. Call Dell and ask them. I some case a while back they were doing a free motherboard replacement. The problem causes a whole raft of errors to occur from blue screens to "thermal event error" and the only thing that fixes it is to have the motherboard replaced. Hope this helps you

Hey, My Dell Optiplex GX270 will run for a quick second, beep, and then a light with a barrel looking icon lights for a second too. How do I fix this? Thanks so much!


I would run diagnostics. Here's how you do it if the utility partition exists on your hard drive:

Starting the Dell Diagnostics From Your Hard Drive
  1. Shut down and restart the computer.

  2. When the DELL™ logo appears, press <F12> immediately.

NOTE: If you see a message stating that no diagnostics utility partition has been found, run the Dell Diagnostics from your Drivers and Utilities CD.
If you wait too long and the Microsoft® Windows® logo appears, continue to wait until you see the Windows desktop. Then shut down your computer through the Start menu and try again.
  1. When the boot device list appears, highlight Boot to Utility Partition and press <Enter>.

  2. When the Dell Diagnostics Main Menu appears, select the test you want to run.

My Dell Optiplex GX270 continues to go into power saver mode.


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.
