Sounds like hardware failure. Could be the anyone of the many components inside of the computer. It's definitely not a software issue.

My suggestion would be to take it to a tech or buy a new computer.

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: problems with dell optiplex sx 270 shutting down

Heat sink sounds like a very good next step. I would thoroughly dust out the machine with canned or compressed air ( if you used a vaccuum already it may have cooked something with static discharge). After that you can order some thermal paste from Tigerdirect.com or pick some up at your local computer store (dont cheap out on it $5-$10 will get you 1-2 tubes of reasonable quality, and it does not go bad).

Remove the heat sink carefully, remove the chip from the cradle and inspect it to be sure it is not burnt or damaged. Clean the chip and the heat sink of all residue of the former thermal compound. Reinstall the chip. Then apply a spot of thermal paste/compound about half the size of a dime in the center of the chip. Reapply the heatsink, make sure everything is snug tight and secure and give it a try.

If it still dosent work there is more I can do to help. I am A+ cert and have passed all Dell factory tests, as well as working on many of these machines in a corporate environment.

If you require further assistance please let me know, I CAN solve this problem.

On boot up I have no video display on my dell optiplex 330


It could be one of two things, either your monitor is bad or the video card is bad. Try taken connecting your monitor to a different computer. If the monitor works then it the video card. You could just purchase a new video card and put in and it should work

Reset bios


Installing a fresh operating system is a good option, and there might be a feature in the BIOS to restore the system to factory defaults. Information on how to do this:

Windows XP: Dell PC Restore

Using PC Restore:

1. Turn on the computer.

During the boot process, a blue bar with www.dell.com appears at the top
of the screen.

2. Immediately upon seeing the blue bar, press <Ctrl><F11>.
If you do not press <Ctrl><F11> in time, let the computer finish
starting, and then restart the computer again.

NOTICE: If you do not want to proceed with PC Restore, click Reboot.

3. Click Restore and click Confirm.
The restore process takes approximately 6 to 10 minutes to complete.

4. When prompted, click Finish to reboot the computer.

NOTE: Do not manually shut down the computer. Click Finish and let the computer
completely reboot.

5. When prompted, click Yes.

The computer restarts.

Because the computer is restored to its original
operating state, the screens that appear, such as the End User License
Agreement, are the same ones that appeared the first time the computer
was turned on.

6. Click Next.
The System Restore screen appears and the computer restarts.

7. After the computer restarts, click OK.

Ell optiplex 330,won't boot memory parity error, tried new bios battery, new ram stick, still won't boot,actually had two at same time the other I ran a advanced diagnostic test said hard driv


Is it a raid drive? If so you need to format it correctly. If not, check the bios setup and insure your uefi or ahci and legacy options are correct. Check the sata operation should be usb. Check that the boot sequence is in order. Give me more information and I'll help you

Hi there! please show me or tell me what to do with my Dell Optiplex 330, When i switch it on the fan runs and it displays but it does not go beyond the DEll POST screen. thanx timothy


It sounds to me as the expensive part is OK.
First try and boot from your System CD. If that works then your system software is corrupt and a repair is required. To do that, load the rescue/system disk and follow the "Repair your system" prompt. That will fix your problem, if that option is not available and the computer boots OK from the CD then re format your hard drive and then you can put a fresh install system on it restoring your data from your back up discs.
Hope that helps.
