Question about Computers & Internet
If a power supply has gone out in a PC the only cost effective thing to do is replace the power supply. If the Optiplex is the Dell I'm thinking of it requires a slim power supply. You may have to contact Dell to purchase another power supply.

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...

You problem is most likely caused by faulty capacitors on the motherboard. Most PCs of your age suffered from this. It was a manufacturing defect. Call Dell to see if they will replace it for free. This is a picture of two blown caps so you can id them on your MB

SOURCE: Dell GX280 Optiplex wont start
Dell GX280 has been known to have issues with mother board because of bad capacitors that were sent out in them at that time. I have had so many issues with them when i working as an it. If you can open up your pc and look on mother board for expanded capacitors or even leaking. if they are not round it means that is the problem. Dells are very easy to open. On top and bottom there are kinda buttons u can press and just open towards the side that has lock for like locker lock and look inside.
