Leave as is if the port is part of the motherboard. Instead pick up an add-on card. Easy and cheap fix.

SOURCE: Dell (ie optiplex 330) would not boot with the orange light on

Do you have a lot of accessories plugged in? They may have overloaded the power supply and if this is the case you will need to buy new power supplies. If this is not the problem, check to make sure that the computers have plenty of ventilation in the back. If they don't, they may have overheated and melted quite a few different components.

SOURCE: in my dell desktop optiplex 330 hard disk is

Is it a BIOS password or a HDD password? If it's sewt in BIOS, you could try to reset the BIOS to factory default (which should remove any BIOS passwords) If however it is a HDD password, it is a bit different.. you may need to restore your sytem (low level, high level formats, then reload your OS sorry but you likely lose all your data..What OS do you use? there are programs that can possibly give you a boot cd depending on whether your system is fat32 or NT.. NT is more complicated because fat32 will not read NT BUT NT will read fat32.. IF you have the ability to restore your OS then first try to do a complete restore with backup.. that way you may be able to save most of your datafiles.. if you have never accessesd the pc then just try a destructive system restore (will low-level, then high-level format the HDD and reinstall your software without any SW passwords..
First thing I would try is to get into the BIOS and unset any passwords there.. If you need more help you can try to contact me mage0213@aol.com with more information

SOURCE: my dell optiplex 330 can not switch on, whan I put

If you are getting an amber light flashing, your power supply is faulty.

If it is a solid amber light, you motherboard is faulty or one of the componants are faulty.

I would suggest giving Dell a call. They would beable to pin point the problem and give you a quote. Some of their componants are non standard and can only be purchased from them.

You could try reseating all your componants on the last resort but it is unlikly to help.

Were do the jumpers go on a optiplex 330


There is the Password jumper (PSWD), and the CMOS jumper.

The CMOS battery is also termed the RTC battery.
Real Time Clock battery.
The CMOS jumper is labeled as RTCRST.

Real Time Clock ReSeT.

Jumper pin location is confusing if you go with Dell documentation.

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/op330/en/ug/mtparts.htm#wp1607303


Dell Support documentation shows the RTCRST jumper pins near the Intel chipset, and PSWD jumper pins near the outside edge of the motherboard.

I'm also looking at the Dell Optiplex 330, Technical Guidebook, Inside the Optiplex 330,

http://www.dell.com/downloads/global/products/optix/en/optix_330_techspecs.pdf

Location of RTCRST jumper pins, is near the left corner of the Intel chipset, instead of the right as shown above, and PSWD jumper pins are in the same location.

And several views of Optiplex 330 motherboard's on Ebay,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Dell-Optiplex-330-Motherboard-Socket-775-KP561-/140870576837?pt=Motherboards&hash=item20cc8a6ac5

(Nice to have that Zoom in feature on Ebay now)

Jumper pins close to the white SATA 2 connector, are the RTCRST jumper pins.

Jumper pins at the bottom side of the Intel chipset are the PSWD jumper pins.

Jumper cap stays on PSWD jumper pins.
No jumper cap on the RTCRST jumper pins.

I want to connect a CAT5e Ethernet cable (with or without a RJ45 connector) from a DSL router to an older computer that only has a RJ11 input. This will be used for DSL internet service only -- no...


The only "outputs" from a DSL-router are:
* RJ-11 telephone-jack, only if the router also supports voice-over-IP,
* RJ-45 Ethernet port (always present)

You need to purchase an internal network-card, to create an RJ-45 port on the computer, and then use the CAT-5e cable to make the connection.

T636400000 does it have an ethernet card built in the unit?


You are probably looking at a RJ-11, used for telephone (dial up - modem). You are trying to put a RJ-45 connector in it.

The RJ-45 should have 8 wires while the RJ-11 may have as many as 6 connectors.

Thank you for your voluntary work with this organization.

Note: If you were to plug a RJ-11 into a RJ-45 port and if it happened that you plugged the other end of the phone cord (RJ-11) into a phone jack --- and the phone were to ring ... you would be pumping 60 volts into your computer. Be very careful with these connections. You would then need butter and jelly for your toast, which is what your computer would be.

Ok - recap: Both look very similar ...

Ethernet = 8 conductors - RJ-45

Telephone = up to 6 wires (may be 2 or 4 also) - RJ-11. NOT interchangable.

So how will you connect? If the laptop is not builltin wireless, you can get a PCMIA card for the slot on the side that will allow wireless or ethernet. Get the card at your computer store. ... Or ... use the built in modem for dialup., You would of course need a dialup account somewhere.

Does it make a difference if i use a wire splitter? does it make a difference of the order the phone pins are connected in the wire splitter?


What are you doing? Are we talking about telephones (RJ-11) or are we talking about routers and ethernet cable (RJ-45)?????

RJ-11 will fit into a RJ-45 but a RJ-45 will not fit into a RJ-11. Translation, your telephone wire will plug into your router/computer port but your Ethernet wire will not fit into your telephone jack.

If you are working on a telephone, as long as you have dial tone on the other end, it doesn't make a big difference. You should have a polarity checker to insure proper polarity but even if it is wrong, most phones will work most of the time. Get a polarity checker at Radio Shack for about $10.00

If you are working on a router ... well, it is no wonder your network will not work. You cannot split one RJ-45 port into two "Ports" using a telephone RJ-11 splitter. Never, Never, Never, plug your router cable into a telephone jack (RJ-11). Yea, Yea, Yea, I know, I just said a RJ-45 will not fit into a RJ-11 but if you have a telephone cord pluged into the router, guess what, 60 Volts will smoke it. When the phone rings, it rings with 60+ volts and will smoke any computer device it can smoke looking for ground.

If you need more computer ports, get a bigger router or bigger switch or bigger hub or get a wireless router to accomodate your wireless devices.

I hope I have answered your question.

Is the ethernet card on dimension 3000 dell alone or part of the motherboard


Hi,

Since around 1998 all motherboards come with the LAN (network/ethernet) on board.
The port will be at the back of the Dell next to the USB ports, you can't miss it.
