Question about Dell OptiPlex GX260 PC Desktop
Hello, I have just exchanged case, since i wanted to go water cooling. I have preparated out those two miniboards, that start the computer and plugged everything in. Now when i press the start button, everything starts to spin, but i get no visual. Can't get even to BIOS. The computer worked before and I am certain i did not damage any components. What might i have missed?
Try the old power supply. Dells are legendary for screwing with the wiring. I have heard they did this for pre P4, but who knows they could've done this with a few P4's as well.
If that's the case and I'm sure you're gonna need the power check out: http://www.pcpower.com/products/power_supplies/dell/ They have one made to solve this problem.

Check to make sure all of your cards and memory are seated properly. Remove all of the cards and reseat them. Best way to do it is remove everything, then put your RAM back in. See if it will POST (Power On Self Test, e.g. the single beep). If so, start putting each expansion card (e.g. video, audio, raid, etc) in one at a time and see if it will POST. Also, make sure your CPU and heatsink are seated properly. While changing cases shouldn't change anything, a stray bump in the process could have dislodged things.
