Optiplex repowers when putting in hibernate/standby mode

I have an Optiplex gx620 with a Pentium Duo 3,4Ghz. I upgraded it with an SSD and installed Win7 pro. The problem is that I want to let it hibernate wenn I leave it but it repowers after few Sec. I already updated Bios (which was quit tricky) but didn't change anything.

Try sleep instead of hibernate. They never seem to work. Just an opinion.

SOURCE: DELL OptiPlex GX150 Upgrading

Yes, $100.00 was too much for that system. I saw a refurbished Dell GX270 2.8Ghz 512MB 40GB HD CD/R/RW Windows XP Pro COA w/SP3 and all updated drivers installed for $114.00 + $5.24 shipping (amazon). Also see a Refurbished IBM ThinkCentre A50P(8193A3U) Intel Pentium 4 2.4GHz 512MB DDR 48x CD-ROM 40GB HD for $149.99 + 3 day free shipping (NewEgg). There are a lot of great reasonable sellers on Ebay but it's waters are getting more and more filled with Sharks as well (as well as many other sites, Just used Ebay as an example). I know this info doesn't help much now but hopefully in the future it can. You see a certain price on a system, do a full search on that same system and compare prices and shipping charges on what you find out there.

SOURCE: optiplex gx620 black screen stuck on safe mode

Look at the motherboard (mobo). Failure of motherboards is usually due to breaking capacitors. A few years ago a capacitor company stole the "recipe" for making capacitors from another company and tried to make their own, unfortunately they did not get the ingredients right and the capacitors started breaking after 2-3 years of use. They sold these capacitors at very cheap prices and a lot of computer companies and power supply makers bought them. This is easy to diagnose. Look for capacitors (caps) (they look like little tiny soda cans) on your motherboard (mobo). They should be perfectly flat on top and not bulged or swelling or leaking anything.
You could also try to change out the power supply if you can find another one that fits it.

SOURCE: Dell OptiPlex GX620 starts up then shuts down repeatedly

Try this: remove the DMOS battery and unplug the on/off switch plug. It's the one in the corner near the power supply. To be sure follow the cable from the front on/off switch board on back to this plug. Then plug the A/C cord in, if the system boots up fine, then replace the front panel power on/off swith board. Naturally you will not be able to power off the computer using the power switch (since we unplugged it), so you will have to just pull the plug. Hope this helps. Joe

Seems like the PC has Hibernation mode turned on. After 1 hour windows will put the PC and hardrives to sleep to conserve power. If you want to disable it, here how:
  1. Open Control Panel.
  2. Double-click the Power Options icon.
  3. Within the Power Options Properties window, click the Hibernate tab.
  4. Uncheck the "Enable hibernation" checkbox to disable the feature, or check the box to enable it. This window also displays the total space required for hibernation.

Depends on the socket type.. Socket 423 and 478 do not support core duo or quad core processor types. However, if you have LGA 775 (aka socket T) your motherboard will support the following:
Intel Pentium 4 (2.60 - 3.80 GHz)
Intel Celeron D (2.53 - 3.60 GHz )
Intel Pentium 4 Extreme Edition (3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
Intel Pentium D (2.66 - 3.60 GHz)
Pentium Extreme Edition (3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
Pentium Dual-Core (1.40 - 3.33 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Duo (1.60 - 3.33 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Extreme (2.66 - 3.20 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Quad (2.33 - 3.00 GHz)
Intel Xeon (1.86-3.40 GHz)
Intel Celeron (1.60 - 2.40 GHz)

For save old bios and install new bios Dell OptiPlex gx620 (from version A05 to A011)


If you are looking to update your BIOS then you can obtain the latest version from Dell. There should also be a step by step guide on how to correctly perform the upgrade. However, unless there is a real need to upgrade your BIOS then you should not have to do this. I have worked on and custom built several PC's and have never had to update the BIOS.

I have a dell optiplex gx620 that won't load in normal mode but works just find in safe mode, what should i do?


Your Optiplex should have come from Dell with a restore disk.

While in safe mode, back up all of your important data -- get it off your computer. Then use the restore disk to reinstall your operating system and restore the computer to how it came from dell.

You then can put all of your backed up data back on your Dell.

Lost resolution windows vista upgrade on GX260


Hi all,

I tried numerous solutions for this issue and none of them worked except this one. I tested it with Vista Ultimate and don’t know if other Vista versions have the same drivers but here’s what worked for me:

1. Right click ‘Computer’ then left click ‘Properties’ to open up System window.
2. Click ‘Device Manager’
3. Click ‘+’ on ‘Display Adapters’ and you should see the drivers for your video. Right click and select ‘Update Driver Software...’
4. Select ‘Browse my computer for driver software’ and click ‘next’.
5. Click ‘Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer’
6. Untick ‘Show compatible hardware’
7. Select ‘Intel Corporation’ then select ‘Intel 82865G’. Click next.

This will install the drivers. No they are not the same drivers for the hardware but they work a treat!
